This can be a very serious issue to include: a failing alternator, a dying battery or a bad ignition. Check for recalls on this vehicle and if there are none, refer to a mechanic for further action.

If you found damaged cables, might want to first replace them to see if it corrects your problem. While doing this, you may want to check to see if your alternator is performing it's job of charging the truck battery.

302 bronco stalls after it warms up and won't start till it cools down


I am guessing its your TFI or Thick Film Ignition module. Usually located on the underside of your distributor, its either grey or black in color and often when it is going bad it acts like this: Usually starts fine, runs ok for about 20 min then engine dies. cranking engine sounds normal but no start. checking spark will have no sparks. Leave hood up and allow to cool (also TFI very hot to the touch) I packed Ice around it once (in a ziplock) that made it run in about 45 min. NOTE: get ready to replace real soon because its on the way to breaking down.

The fuel pressure sounds too low. Is it multi-port injection? Check the fuel pressure against your specs for the car and engine. MPFI systems usually require 40-50 psi.

Fuel pressure intermittently drops causing sputter and die.


check for 12v constant at your fuel pump if you are not getting that replace your relay.
if you are getting 12 volts at your fuel pump the fuel pump is possible to run tuel it gets warm then shut down to a lower rpm I would then replace the fuel pump

Try changing the fuel filter. You may want to consider a Weber carburetor conversion. That Asian carb is old
