Question about 1996 Ford Bronco

1 Answer

Truck keeps stalling won't turn on.

Try to turn it on every time each day but keeps stalling just makes that noise when it sounds like it wants to turn on but it doesn't. The only way it does turn on is by adding starter fluid in the throttle like back then. Any ideas let me know thanks.

Fuel tank is comtaminated , the tank needs to be dropped an inspected the fuel pumps had alot of problems for the last few yeaars of the broncos also . you may also first of course try to start the truck and have someone bang the fuel tank on the side very hard this sometimes allows the fuel pump to work momentaraly, telling you that the fule pump is the problem there is also a green relay under the hood that controlles the fuel pump . they are known for being laying there and the allow water intrusion . the next possible cause is check for spark the graqy module on the side of the distibutor and the stater ounder the rotor can cause this no start concern. you can buy a tester for less than a 100 that can help you find any codes then chech the library if the unit does not give you a code

SOURCE: i have to use starter fluid to get my truck

It sounds like it's not getting fuel. Are you in a cold climate? The gas line could be frozen. You can check the fuel pump by disconnecting the gas line at the carb, you may want to put a length of hose on the line and catch the gas in a coffee can. Then have someone crank the engine while you watch to see if gas squirts out of the line. I wouldn't use too much starting fluid, you can damage your engine, pour a little gas in the carb instead. Also, on a truck of that age the gas line could have a hole rusted in it between the tank and the fuel pump. If that's the case the pump will not pull the gas out of the tank it will draw air instead. It could be the fuel pump itself. If you have a good stream of gas to the carb then the problem is in the carb. It could be the needle valve is stuck shut, take a screwdriver and lightly tap on the carb, that will sometimes jar the needle loose. If you have gas to the carb it could also be clogged jet inside the carb. I you hold the choke partialy closed will it stay running then?

SOURCE: engine stalls at 30mph upon

Hello first of all


well i am sorry a mechanic cant figure this out its really sad. ok so your problem is your either one of two things but most likely the first one i list.

1. camshaft postion sensor
2. crankshaft postion sensor

Now that being said it most likely the camshaft sensor the reason i say that is when a crankshaft postion sensor is bad the car has very hard starts and most of the time no start issues. When a camshaft postion sensor is bad the car cuts off whil driving and can be hard to start up again.

So that being said they are both pretty cheap parts i would go ahead and replace them both and i would bet my 5 years as ford mechanic that solves your issue.

The crank postion sensor is located behind the harmonic balancer pully or right beside it here is a picture from autozone.com and description.

The crankshaft position sensor identifies position of the crankshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM).

  • When not replaced, vehicle could experience no- or hard start, long crank time, misfire, lack of power, excessive hydrocarbons in oil, spark plug fouling, catalytic converter failure, poor fuel economy, CEL/MIL illumination or intermittent shutdown.
  • Designed to meet or exceed OE specifications in form, fit and function.
  • Global coverage for import and/or domestic applications.

    The crankshaft postion sensor is 22.99 and the cam is 19.99 so 50.00 bucks and about hours time should have you up and running.

    PS if this helps please 4 thumbs up it helps me continue to help on here thanks

    CHECK BATTERY CONNECTIONS, STARTER CONNECTIONS, WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN IT DOESN'T START, TO GET IT GOING AGAIN, DO YOU GET A JUMP START IF SO CHECK CONNECTIONS.

    Won't start after sitting for a few days


    Could be loosing fuel pressure thru the pressure regulator or the valve in the fuel pump. The pressure should hold for several days when the engine is off.
    I would have the fuel pressure tested before and after you try to start the engine.

    Try starting the truck so it makes the noise.
    Then switch the air control to "fresh".
    If noise stops, it is probably the motor that closes flap to recycle the cab air.
    It would be found under the dash, under the glove box, & would need to be replaced.

    I would suspect the fuel pump is the problem, it may be sticking at times and this causes a no start. The pump is located inside the fuel tank and it is electric.
