Your problem is most likely due to a faulty fuel rail pressure regulator. It is the small can mounted inline with the fuel rail with a vacuum hose attached to a hose barb on to of the unit.

Got no fuel pressure will not start

When Ford Went to fuel injection on the 2.9 L V-6 they manufactured them with two fuel pumps.Pump number one is located in the fuel tank on a hanger complete with fuel gauge sending unit.This pump is used for volume.Fuel pump two is located on the drivers side almost directly under the drivers floor pan area nestled inside the frame.This pump is used for high pressure that is required for fuel injection.Your problem may lie in the pressure pump.Also the 2.9 L has a vacuum controlled pressure regulator that is located on the right hanf topside of the engine towards the backof the intake plenum on the fuel rail.It has two screws mounting it and is round with one single preformed vaccum line going to it.These have a filter screen that can become cloggedand be pushed into the regulator restricting fuel flow or the diaphragm just wears out.Check these three things out and ill bet you be running in no time.The bronco II`s also have two fuel filters one mounted on the drivers side mid vehicle nestle within the frame check it also.Well I hope this helps.

Good Luck...........

Ford bronco 1990 sputters at 3rpm

It sounds as if you have a fuel system problem or either the exhaust may be stopped up. Have the fuel pressure checked it should be at or near 30-35 lbs if not you may need to replace the fuel pressure regulator or the fuel pump. Both are common on parts to fail.

Fuel flow or fuel filter problems

The fuel filter should look like a short soup can on the inside of the driver's side frame rail between the fuel tank and the engine. If a new filter does not fix your problem, have the fuel pressure checked, your fuel pump may have lost pressure and need to be replaced (fuel injected models).
