Ford Bronco Problems



  • It appera that the bolt had some thread lock installed last tim the the watrer pump was replaced. You are going to have to take it to a reputable shop and have them take it out. they have a master tapa nd die set that can extricate the bolt the correct way and install the water pump the correct way. With Bronco's always the correct way. the vehicles need out heart as we are akward individuals that know what great vehicles are about.
  • I had a proroblem with my 89 Bronco and I just bought a module that is attached to the distributor and tried to start. No luck and found out that the module was bad. So I bought a module form Napa and it worked. Ford had a recall on the module, so it is up to us to solve the problem.

    Well, insted of getting a newer tail gate
    I elected to go to a shop that does rewireing!!!!

    $40.00 bucks and the problem was gone!!!

    I thought " Why get my B P up over something like this"

    Just take it to someone that knows what they are doing!!!! :)

    I have a 96 Eddie Bauer and love it. But My light came on and they replaced all of my sensors including my drive thing 4 total. but I am still having the same problem it will not start hot it chuggs and will hardly keep turning almost like dieseling. but runs perfect after it gets over that little fit. starts perfect when cold. they kept trying to replace this and that at $200.00 and $400.. none of what they said sounded like it would be the cure. any suggestions would be great!!!! Thank You, Cindy

    Everything you described sounds as if you have a carb prob or fuel injecto trouble. If you have fuel injection
    Have it Profesionally cleaned . If you have carburation.
    Have the carb rebuilt or ajusted. Check out the fuel sensors... They went out on my daughters Bronco
    and she replaced them herself...
  • when i put the truck in any gear and let off the clutch, it sits and idles just like its in neutral. is that the pressure plate and release bearing? or something with the t case?

    Don't know what year your Bronco is? Every time the clutch in my 78 Bronco has gone....the clutch has gone. If the pressure is still there when you step on the clutch to switch gears, and the peddle hasn't slipped, it sounds like a problem with the T. case? Hope you get it figured out?

    Sounds like your trans is overheating. Check your trans cooler.
  • 1992 Ford Bronco with a Windsor 351
    Has new gas tank, fuel pump, fuel pump assembly, fuel filter, cap and rotor, heater core, spark plugs and wires, coolant temperature sensor, idle air control sensor, throttle position sensor, pressure regulator, ignition control module, radiator.
    Brake drums, shoes and tires were replaced in 2009.

    Anyway so sometimes i can go out and start this bad boy right up but then later i go out and it won't start but 10 minutes later it will. Whats wrong?
  • Google this and you'll find what you are looking for.

    "81 ford bronco manual"

  • Did you also put a new ignition coil on the truck when you changed the rotor and cap? I put an MSD coil and Ford Racing 8.5mm plug wires on mine and it never fails to fire now.

    yes. i did that as well, im thinking about a o2 sensor ? ???
  • You might try looking at the pick-up screen in you fuel tank. Sometimes you have junk in your fuel that blocks the fuel tack up screen after the vehicle moves and stirs up the particles in the fuel. When it is off and sets the particles drop off the screen. Next time you start up the process starts all over again. The bad thing is you have to drop the fuel tank to remove the low pressure pump and screen. There are other things that can cause the vehicle to stall after a few minuets, but if it caughs and sputters chances are it is a fuel problem. If it is electrical it useually is abrubpt.

    I see that the post was done in 09' but was wondering if you ever found out what the problem was. I also own a 93 ford bronco EB 5.8 and have the similar problem. I seem to drive it all around town and after it gets hot I try speeding up from a complete stop by putting my foot down on the pedal it seems to just sit in first gear and not shift... any suggestions? :confuse:

    I have a 1995 bronco with 113k on it and its doing the exact same thing.drives fine for about five min then it loosed power ,to suddenly inlaw has bin working in Ford engines for over 40
    years and he said to change the distributor cap ,sometimes water seeps in,its bin raining here in northeast jersey so it kind of makes sense.I'm gonna have my distributor cap and spark plugs and wires replaced and check back on outcome tomorrow...

    I picked up a 95 bronco with 113444mi on it. I replaced the dist cap & wires as it was running rough in wet weather &that seemed to clear that problem. Now ,it will idle ok while in neutral,but as soon as I put it in gear it will still idle but will not take any gas. It will chug, back fire etc.but won't accelerate. I ended up going a few miles at idle. Also the trans linkage is very loose,sloppy.

    ok got my truck back and it turned out that the gas tank was rusted out.changed the fuel filter also and its running like a champ again. :blush:
  • Sorry I see it's been awhile from when you posted orginally, I would look at the turn signal switch, it controls all of those functions. If you have the tilt wheel, it a bit of a pain. Next would be the grounds, by each tail light and turn signal is a ground if they arnt hooked up or have proper connection throws light off...
  • I have a 1988 full size bronco. I replaced the engine with a fred jones rebuild 302(EOC). Now the trans won't work, when you bolt up the trans it pushes the pump arm back and breaks it. Does or has anyone had this problem. How did you fix it? The trans is an aod.
  • By the way it sounds or as you explaine it you have Not Set the torque converter in right.. it should turn in three times and set inI did the same thing so don't get in a huff... It really pissed me off to think after all that work I had to replace the front pump AGAIN.....

    Try it again and see if the bugger lines up.. take care, John
