I have 1995 5.8 Bronco. Startturn off. Come back in few minutes won't start, but will wait for 10 minutes or so and then starts fine...until turn off again. Solenoid?


By suggesting solenoid I guess you mean it will not even crank. Heat soak can make solenoid act this way. If it cranks but will not start, I suspect leaky fuel injector(s) flooding engine.

Why the engine starts, runs about 5 second, dies and then won't start, if you wait 10 minutes it starts and runs fine, this happens once every few weeks/months or twice in one day, no set pattern. hav


I saw what you replaced, didn't see any testing? What testing have you done? Make sure battery has a full charge?
When the problem is ongoing, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?
If you have the spider fuel system, that system is noted for problems.

Rattling noise and battery light on?


It may be the alternator bearing/bushing that is making the noise and may lead to alternator breakdown. This will result in battery not charging and the light on the dash coming on. You need to confirm this.

I acclerated quickly in my 2003 VW Beetle & the check engine light came on. It's not flashing, just steady. The manuel said the light would go off once the engine idle steadied, but it did not.


that could be an over boost trouble code thrown by the MAP sensor alot of the ford powerstroke trucks do it and sometimes the light comes on and then goes right off other times it will stay on for a few days nothing to really worry about as long as everything is working as it should hope this helps
