Question about 1989 Ford Bronco II

1 Answer

I have a 1986 bronco 2. Just bought it and when i drove it 5 or so miles it would start missing as i was pumping pedal trying to keep it running until it died. Tried to restart and it would not start. Let sit for 30 minutes and it cranked right up and ran fine for another few minutes then started acting up again. Already changed the Fuel filter and checked the fuel pressure. I checked the oil and there is no water in the oil incase of cracked head. When it was breaking up it smelled like it was running ritch. Any idea which sensor to replace first.? Thanks for any ideas

I would consider the O2 sensor and the coolant tempurature sensor.

Try replacing coil. Ford coils are notorious for issues. Common issue when coil gets warm, oil in coil expands and leaks upward into coil wire shorting out. When it cools down, starts right up again until warm. Note: This MIGHT be your problem - it does happen.

Could be a number of things. Might want to check the plugs, wires, cap and rotor. Could also be that your injectors are fouled. Heck, your timing belt could be off a tooth.

Change your fuel filter, it may have gone it's life time and is getting to dirty to let fuel flow properly. Your fuel pump to may be getting weak, if the fuel filter is dirty the pump works harder and heats up and could be over heating the fuel pump relay too. The fuel pump relay i believe is in the glove box behind a panel that say relay, there should be (3) in there and the middle one is the fuel pump's. switch then around after you change the fuel filter and if you get a chance, check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Good luck and hope this help's if there is a Auto Zone around you, you can ask to use the fuel pressure gauge to see what fuel pressure you have and they'll have the step by step instructions on how to do it and takes about 5 min to do and will have the fuel filter and step by step to replace that too. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

Try cleaning the fuel pump filter. Under the seat behind the driver lift the carpet and you will find a round cover with six screws remove the cover. The fuel pump is directly below unscrew the retaining round plate and remove the pump. At the base of the pump is a small filter if it is covered in black muck that's your problem. clean and replace. job takes about 10 mins good luck. please let me know how you got on!

1988 ford bronco 2 wont start but engine rotates


souds like you have no power to the coil when key is on

when you crank the motor you get a boost of 12v from the starter circut thats why it only runs when you hold the ket on start and stops when you ley it go

turn your ignition on and check with a test light if you have power if not check all fuses

you can jump a wire from the + side of the battery to the + side of the coil to keep it running to get you to a garage if you cant find the problem
good luck
