Question about 1988 Ford Bronco II
I have a 1988 Ford Bronco II. While driving, the engine will, at random, loose power and drop speed. If I floor the gas, it will come back up to power. If I let off the gas while in this "lowered power" state, the engine will stall, no matter the speed. The engine isn't perfectly timed and the hold down bolt for the distributor is only hand tightened. Would this problem be fixed if I time the engine.
Have te ignition module and stator been replaced? that is the common cause of this, and yes the engine being out of time can cause this stall out, when you time the engine remember you must remove the timing shorting bar at the distributor connector to the TFI ignition module or the timing will be severely retarded
