Well I can see we have a 4th grade spelling abilaty.
but that won't solve your problem
Your problem is not starting is running, if it turns over but not firing its ignition system, replace the TFI (Thick Film Ignition) module on the distrubuter. Its that gray wide retangle looking square sitting on the side of the distributer below the cap
its overheating

My 1989 bronco II quit running going down the road and now it will not start back


Check all connections. Battery cables, switch to starter cables, make sure they are all tight. Make sure the starter is engaging and disengaging. Check the belts for looseness. The fact that you were driving when it happened say`s something is loose!

I ran into this problem with one of these at my shop. Gave me a fit for a week. Replaced quit a few parts. After lots of time and money, I finally fixed it by adding a ground wire from the negative battery post to one of the distributor mounting bolts. These also have problems with the distributors.

Use a test light and see if the switch is getting current, if not then trace that color wire to where it goes to the battery or fuse box along the way it may join to a connector that may be corroded or broken wire.

It wont crank like not getting power


ok sounds like you have a dead battery
1) if turns but slowly:

posible causes:
1.1) old dead batery/
or underchaged battery >check altenator in this case

did you leave your headlights turnt on and drained the battery of its charge?if so get a jump start and then run the car for 30-45 mins to rechagre the battery

if you have at your disposal anothere batery that you know has a good charge
try starting your car with that batery(not using jumper cables) hook it up!
if the slugish turn over is still there

1.2) check your wire conections for corision this means completly disconecting 1 lead at a time (only on one end of that lead)and cleaning them with a wire brush or some sand paper.
(on the battery and the starter also the ground strap conection to the frame.)

2) WONT TURN OVER AT ALL:
posible causes:
2.0) dead battery >try charging it>get a jump start
2.1) blown turnkey igntion fuse
2.2) blow fuse for main har nes wires
2.3) bad starter
2.4) corosion on wire conection (most often the batery terminals)
2.5) starter replaced and hooked up incorectly.

2.6) alram system preventing the turnkey igntion system from getting power

2wd truck ran out of gas. Filled it, it ran for about 5 km then died. Tried putting gas into carb, ran for a bit, then quit. Obviously not getting gas. Where is the fuel filter located, or is there a fuel...


The filter may have been clogged and thus not allowing the fuel to pass and may be the float pin in the carburator float chamber may also have clogged if dirt has passed along.
To find out where the fuel filter is, trace the fuel (gas) pipe from the tank to the fuel pump to the carburator.
I guess the filter should be somewhere between the tank.
Hope this helps!

That is Limp mode.

Probably a frayed wire to the speed sensor.

Very common. You can access the speed sensor through the left side wheel well. It is a plastic thing.. with a two wire lead coming out of it..

Good luck...
