Question about 1984 Ford Bronco II

2 Answers

I replaced the head gakets on my 84 Bronco II put all back together. It will start, pumping on the accelarator but it will die.Could it bet the distributor is off its mark?

I marked the manifold and the distributor. I don't think I'd be off by much. Maybe there 's a vacum hose or something else I may have missed putting things back together?

Re: I replaced head gaskets...
If it starts and quits and the weather is cold, it could be the automatic choke hanging up. Unplug and plug your choke wire connector and tap on the choke.

Don't have anything to add to what your said

Seems you know what your doing

Recheck your work

If it won't idle, then maybe you have a vacuum leak
& that effects venturi vacuum & you don't get enough
fuel drawn in

SOURCE: My 1987 Ford Bronco II won't start

First you always test things & never replace anything

When you understand how things work & how to test
them,then they have to fail a test in order to need replacing

I would think Fuel Pump--if it quite while driving
Put a gauge on the motor if you have a shrader
valve to do so

Seldom do you need to replace a dist
The parts inside can be diagnosed & replaced
if you can source them

Things like plugs,wires & such you leave until you
know if you have fuel pressure,spark & so on.

Once a vehicle gets to 20 years of age you start
checking for wire corrosion such as around fusible links

Never forget the battery & it's cables & the internal
corrosion possible there

Worn ignition switch a possible

You say won't start,so I assume the engine
does turn over?

How to change a flywheel on a 84 bronco 2 standard transmition


is the flywheel worn out or just the ring gear, (starter gear)
first remove the trans mission then unbolt the flywheel, and replace
if only replacing the starter ring gear, use a soft hammer and bump it as you rotate the flywheel until it comes off, if the back side looks good heat it in the oven to 350 degrees and with gloves on run out and put it on the flywheel, it will go on easily, just hold it all the way on against the edge it rests on and turn it about 1/3 turn and hold for about 15 seconds and that's it, it will not come off unless you beat it off again

My dad has a 1988 bronco II and took to walmart and had battery put in backwards. He replaced the computer on the truck and still won't engage fuel pumps to start engine


Did you test the fuel pump for power to the fuel pump? If the pump is receiving the correct voltage, then the problem most likely is that the knuckleheads at Walmart fried your fuel pump also.

89 bronco II stars then dies


if the fuel pump cutoff was tripped it would not start at all, I know this for sure, I am a Ford dealer tech and I specialize in no starts and check eng lights. If the ignition switch is bad the 2 halves of the switch will be starting to come apart, it is very common, u should be able to either see it or feel it with your hand.

88 Bronco ii Coolant not circulating


Good Day,

Sounds like the thermostat is working properly, the only other cause for the valve/lifter noise could be the oil pump is not pumping enough oil up to the top of the motor. I suggest doing an oil change(if you haven'y aleready), be sure to flush several quarts through, after sitting for 5 years I'm sure the old oil is pretty sludgy, this well help rule out this possibilty. As far as the water pump goes, It either works or doesn't typically when they are on there way out the will leak from the gaskets. A bad head gasket would cause white smoke form the exhaust as coolant get's into the oil and is burned off, so I don;t hink this is the problem.

Here's a start for you, hope this helps and good luck
