    Check if you have a fuel filter on the lt frame rail about where the drivers dr is. I think this is one of the first Injected models. Also if it is a double tank it could be the swapping valve in the same place as the forementioned filter placement it acts as both. It's a pressure operated valve and if the intank pump don't put out enough pressure the valve won't swap. If the pump ain't putting out enough pressure it's needs to be replaced.

Check the starter, start with the wires running to the starter, if everything looks ok remove the starter and have it bench tested.

Could be a defective battery. May have a dead cell so it charges but does not hold charge.

87 chevy wont start


seems fuel related--pump and pressure regulator may be failing--a pressure test for residual fuel is needed. Go to an honest, independent or specialist. Injector driver could be going bad. It\'s in the computer. Get a obd 1 scan tool on it to read data as well as any codes

Daughter hit a curb with a ford focus 2005 now the battery wont stay charged. Replaced battery all was fine started the next day. After driving the car died nothing worked got a jump and car ran like no...


1. Check all the cable connections on the battery and on the alternator.

2. If they are all fine then have the alternator checked because from what you have described it is not charging. The usual problem is worn brushes in the alternator.

87 f250 drained brand new battery


I would first have the alternator checked by an auto electrician to ensure it is working correctly and is providing the correct volume of current. It may be faulty and when driving you will be drawing battery power instead of power from the alternator to run the electrics. This will drain the battery.

Alternators do not last forever and if you are still running the original unit it is likely to be on it's last legs and you will need a replacement unit.

Actually its an 87 but still a bronco


looks like you burnt the fuseable link from the alternator . you need to check the voltage at the back of the alternator on the red heavy wire with the battery fully charged and key off you should have battery volts at this terminal and if there is voltage you need to put a load on that wire with a 12 volt light bulb. . the bottom line is your charging system isnt working . so we need to find where it has lost its connection. let me know if this doesnt work and ill send a wiring diagram with directions.
