This 1987 ford bronco 2 has sat for a year,decent condition. While driving, or when I take offf it stutters and sometimes cuts off while driving. Also sometimes will not start. I need to know what the fuel filter looks like and where it's located. Can you show pictures
The Instrument Panel gauges dont work, ie.. gas hand speedometer. how can i fix it
The fuel filter should look like a short soup can on the inside of the driver's side frame rail between the fuel tank and the engine. If a new filter does not fix your problem, have the fuel pressure checked, your fuel pump may have lost pressure and need to be replaced (fuel injected models).

Well all FI bronco 2's with the 2.9 in them were originally setup with a low pressure pump in the tank and a high pressure pump located under the drivers door just in front of the fuel canister that you spoke of. you can get the high pressure pump at a parts store my father got his at autozone, he also purchased the new fuel filter for the canister at napa.. fuel pump high pressure at autozone part# E2000- airtex master pump
The fuel pump on a Bronco is located inside the fuel tank. The level sender unit and pump are usually mounted together but they can be changed individually.
You will probably need a speacial tool to seperate the flexible fuel hoses from the metal fuel pipes.
The only way air can get in the fuel line is if you have a hole in it! Problem of course is were? I would run the fuel line from back to front and back again. Look for any wet spot that you can find. You may even have to drop the tank to ba able to look on top. I would suspect the problem is in the line before the high preasure pump, being as you are pulling air into the system. I have seen leaky lines allow air in, but not let fuel out.
First thing to check out will be the fuel pump relay under the hood. It is the one who drives the pump, so if it is defective the pump will not work either to prime the engine, or to make it run. Secondly, you need to check if the fuel filters are OK cause sometimes they clog up and prevent enough fuel from reaching the engine. Thirdly, check the injector(s) for cloging, and clean or replace them as needed. If none of this helps, then the problem probably has nothing to do with fuel delivery, and the next step to check will be the whole ignition system, which is also one of the most comon bronco problems.
I had a geo metro that sat a long time and the gas turned to varnish. You will need to drop the tank, clean out the gunk, put in a new fuel pump and and filter and flush the fuel lines out to the injectors.
it prolly has gas in the tank from 2 years ago and that gas is no good. fill it up with high octane and add gas treatment. that will prolly fix it once the bad gas runs out and mixes with the new. you may also want to have the timing checked and turn the distributor to bump it up a little
