SOURCE: truck won't start...

It may be a bad starter or the starter solenoid. If by not starting you mean it will not turn engine, but if the engine is turning then the starter is turning so it is something else all together.
Starters will usually work when they are cold then once warm or hot they will not work.
Hope this helps!

There is something called a "spark control computer" which can heat up and cause a no start issue. Especially if it seemed like the engine just shut down like turning a key off. This most likely. Check for power at the coil pos. side and then remove the cap, make and break contact of the points and see if the neg. side will get voltage.

The parts you replaced don't typically fail due to heat/cold cycles.You need to see if it might be the ignition coil.Make the coil easily accessable(take of the engine cover).Have a 12v test light and some sort of spark tester handy.Start the engine,let it run until it quits.See if you have spark at the coil.If not, unplug the low voltage connector on the coil,and put the test light across the connector,and crank the engine.The light should flash on and off.If it does,replace the ignition coil. If it doesn't flash,you may have a bad crank sensor,but this usually won't make it shut off,instead,it will cause it not to restart after heat soaking for a couple minutes.(I'm betting on the igniton coil).

Engine shuts down


The only way to know for sure is to hook a gauge to the rail and check the fuel pressure when it won't start.
Sitting for a few minutes and restarting is normally a sign of a relay or coil cooling off.
There should be a EEC relay that powers the dist module and ECM.
I know you said you have spark, but it could be something else
related.
Also, if you have spark at the right time and no fuel pressure, you should be able to use starting fluid to substitute.
I don't suppose you have dual tanks and the switching valve is the problem ?

My 1989 ford bronco will run for 15 minutes then just quit running have replaced fuel tank both fuel pumps and filter it's got 44 lbs pressure what else could it possibly be wrong


have you checked for ignition fire to the plugs after it dies? chances are the ignition control module is getting hot and shutting off the signal to the ignition coil.

Starts well,runs wellfor five mins but then cuts


My first guess would be the fuel filter. It is probably almost completely plugged.
