Bad fuel pump or a plugged line. Have someone stand near the rear of the vehicle crouched down. When you turn the key to the on position you will hear the pump run. It's usually quiet but you can hear it if it is working. Your fuel filter would be where I would start after that. Should be mounted on the frame just ahead of the gas tank.

I have a 1989 ford bronco it will start and run absolutely fine in park even if you give it gas, but as soon as you put it in drive it sounds and acts like it is not running on all cylinders and has n

Start with the cheapest part. The fuel filter. Even putting it in gear consumes more gas. A clogged filter will restrict the flow. Check for grounds. you should have a ground from the battery to the engine. From the battery to the body. and one from the engine to the body. This is just a start mind you. There are plenty of other things that could be wrong.

4WD Problem

Shut off the vehicle. Place the transfer case indicator into whatever gear you want and then start the vehicle. You placed the transfer case into neutral while the engine was running in gear that's why all the grinding.

Fuel canister valve

Fuel vapor canister or charcoal canister. Your purge solenoid may be inoperable. When engine is running the solenoid energizes to purge the canister of vapors into a line going to the intake manifold.
Remove the canister and dump the fuel out-the charcoal element inside the canister can be replaced, if completely saturated with gas, as I suspect yours is. Getting it to work again may be a lot of fun on an '87-been too long for me-better find the repair procedure re: the canister, and how to check the purge solenoid.
Go to, register for free listing your make, model, year, and engine size. Look under repair guides for operation and testing of the charcoal canister. If not enough info there at autozone (some help is there, but not as much as in a repair manual), then buy the repair manual for your bronco or check at local library-they often have many repair manuals for check-out or reference.

I have an 87 ford bronco with a 5.0 when i unplug

The egr is only active when the engine is under load, it should not make a difference when you pull the line off. The idle going up and down is due to a vacuum leak, could be the upper intake gasket, these were a common problem and you have to remove it anyway to do the valve cover gasket. The only catch here is that you need a extra long t40 torx driver to get to the bolts that hold it on. These should be available at a good parts store, they were made specifically for this job.

Check the whole fuel delivery system. Check the injectors and the fuel pump. Also check the fuel lines to make sure they arent pinched or crimped.

87 ford bronco 5.0

it prolly has gas in the tank from 2 years ago and that gas is no good. fill it up with high octane and add gas treatment. that will prolly fix it once the bad gas runs out and mixes with the new. you may also want to have the timing checked and turn the distributor to bump it up a little
