Timing is everything. Try testing you PCM. It's the little gray box near the base of your distributor. If you have spark, and fuel at the rail (plus good fuel rail pressure) than the timing is your problem.

Check the pet-**** on the fuel rail assembly to make sure the fuel at the rail is under presure and getting to your injectors. Then again make sure you have spark, lastly you should be able to test the trouble codes to see if your PCM is the issue.
Goos luck.

Stalls when put into gear


many things can cause this. the most common problem would be that the timing is slightly off. (fixed sometimes by adjusting the distributor) it could also be a bad fuel pump (or clogged fuel filter) this would allow enough fuel to run the engine in park but not enough to run the engine under stress. clogged air filter could also cause this (not allowing enough air into the cylinders). I would change the air filter and fuel filter. then crank the vehicle and slowly turn the distributor (finding the best idle position) then see what happens. lastly replace the fuel pump.

I have a 1990 ford bronco. ive replaced the battery, starter, and solenoid, but all my truck does when you turn the key is crank but it never starts just cranks over and over. i dont really hear the fuel...


I have a 1990 5.8 liter ford bronco. When engine is cold it will start immediately. Once the engine is warm and driven a short distance. Engine will not restart until engine cools.

Good for you as you already have an idea.

Check your battery and the starter. It's a minor issue.

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.
