Sometimes the plug that goes into the alt is bad most autoparts stores sell aftermarket ones for under $10

Keep in mind, your engine use both source of power to run, one from the battery and one form alternator. If the alternator is good, your engine should stay running regardless if the battery is good or bad, the alternator should keep the engine running. It sound like to me the alternator is faulty not charging your battery or keeping your engine running, even though the alternator is brand new does not mean is good. My guess I would take the alternator back and get another one. the reason why your car ran for 25 min and die it has no source of power to keep the sparks going although the alternator should keep the engine running and at the same time charging the battery but is not.

My 1983 ford bronco will start and run alright


check for a crank shaft or camshaft failure. Also try by using a scanner if you can get any fault or if you use the scanner into live measurements to see the outcome readings into all the electrical and computerized controlled units of the car.

What is the spark plug firing order for a 1989 Ford Bronco with a 302 Cu. In. V8 engine?


There are three kinds of 302s made from 1982-2001. 5.0L HO This engine was used in 1983-1995 Mustangs, Mark VII Lincolns, and some T-birds and Cougars. All Explorer 5.0L engines are 5.0L HO engines as well. They use the 351W firing order, 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8. Except for the 1983-84 Mustangs, all of these engines are roller cam equipped. They use a reverse rotation water pump and front cover. The 1994-5 Mustang and all Explorers use a unique front cover and water pump. 5.0L Full Size Car This engine was used in 1982-1990 Crown Victoria and Grand Marquis. They use the 289-302 firing order, 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. Most of these cars are not roller cam equipped, however sometime in the early 1990s they started using roller cams but retained the 302 firing order. They use a standard (clockwise) rotation water pump and front cover. 5.0L Truck (except Explorer) These engines are similar to the Full Size Car engines, except they use different intake manifolds and camshaft profiles. They also use the 289-302 firing order, 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. They also began using roller cams sometime in the early 1990s. They use a reverse rotation water pump and front cover.

Good Luck

My 1983 bronco with a 302 is smoking out the dip stick vavles and distributor, also lost horse power and dont want to move very well, it still has oil pressuer and does not over heat, no oil mixture in...


Blow by comes from improper ventalation of the engine,or a broken compression ring or crack in a piston.Or a valve stuck open,or broken valve spring causing the ventalation to come up threw the engine crank case.Check for a broken valve spring,and hope the valve spring has not hit the piston.Rate if you would,and thank you.

Bronco Wont Start (help please)


Check for timing gear problems. They have plastic teeth on the cam shaft gear which will shatter causing it to jump time.
