    seems to be fuel but it is old fuel. I did add 15 gals of fresh gas. also That little pressure valve that lets you release some fuel by the main fuel line pours out when I push it but not with lots of pressure. Could this be a fuel pump problem?

    Do you have fuel to the injectors, do you have spark?

First off check your inline fuel filter. If its clogged or restricted you wont get fuel to the injectors with enough pressure. pressure will atomize the fuel out of the injector. email if you want detailed info just email me and ill respond.

Well, if you can drain the fuel out and put fresh gas in, I'd say if it sat over a year or two. If it only sat a few months, it probably is not too bad, unless the cap was off and the fuel door was open. If that is the case, get a gas line dryer, to get water out. If you put in just a plain old additive, that may not help. You should try a good fuel injector cleaner, like Lucas brand. Try a little (but time consuming) trick. After you put in the fuel cleaner, turn the ignition on, with no stereo, or fans or anything. You should hear a little rumble type noise coming from towards the back. This should be the fuel pump, and it should shut off after a couple seconds. Turn the key off, without trying to start it. Turn it back on, and off. Find something to do for half an hour to hour, then come back and on and off it a couple times. Do this for a day or 2, this will circulate fresh cleaner through the injectors. Then try to start it.

I saw what you replaced, didn't see any testing? Any applicable trouble codes?
Did you use a gage and check proper fuel pressure? My info on that engine size, said 35--45 psi. If the fuel pressure is too high, check the return line. As far as the fuel pressure regulator, do you have vacuum?

1988 ford bronco ll engine cuts off while driving. I could not get it started until the next day

Hello, why type of fuel do you use? You could have water in your fuel??. If you are living where the weather is very hot and your having to buy fuel with alcohol 10% or more don't buy this type of fuel. Your 1988 Ford Bronco II is carburetored, and the alcohol will start boiling causing vapor locking this Ford Bronco II. One reason is that early model used an open fuel system and none injectors. With the alcohol additive will low the boiling point of the fuel causing it to boil away; therefore, carburetor can't operate on fuel vapors it has to be liquid. GB...stewbison

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.
