Question about 1987 Ford Bronco

1 Answer

87 ford bronco 5.0

Help! My Bronco will not stay started. It has sat for 2 years and no one has ever wanted to mess with it. I got a wild hair and thought it would be fun to try.( I am a novice to say the least) I did clean the distributor and have the wires in the correct firing order, changed the fuel filter, checked all fluids, and added fuel. What should I try next? Don't really want to give up I have a major stubborn streak and too many people have told me I am a girly girl and should leave it to the pros. Any pointers would be great. Thanks in advance. Pam

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

87 bronco 2 with a 2.9 battery light stays on when ignition is off and my battery dies overnight if i turn my key off and on the light goes off but sometimes comes back on later


have the starter checked out it sounds like a draw from the starter. if it has a dead short in it , it will cause your light to come on also. was the problem with my fathers, most parts stores can check the starter for free after you get it off.

What is the firing order for a 1984 ford bronco 2


1-4-2-5-3-6
Now you need to know which cylinder is which. If you stand at the front of the truck looking at the engine, the number 1 cylinder is on the left closest to you. The left bank has cylinders 1-3-5 and the right bank has 2-4-6. So number 1 is at the left front and number 6 is at the right rear.

Need 2 get truck started


I had a geo metro that sat a long time and the gas turned to varnish. You will need to drop the tank, clean out the gunk, put in a new fuel pump and and filter and flush the fuel lines out to the injectors.
