Ford Bronco Problems

I own a 1993 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer with the 5.8 engine. I have a vibration in the front and the shop told me I had to replace the Torque Converter in the transmission. At a cost of $600.00. Does this seem to much for this job? Any suggestions on how I can cut this cost down???? Sure would like some advice on this. Thanks


  • That sound right. $600.00 is usualy what ashop charges for that kind of work. Now you could save alot of money by doing it your-self. Its just a mater having the time, basic mecanical skill and unbolting the transmition and lines and droping the drive shaft. Hope I was helpful.
  • Hey there... I have a 94 5.0 bronco with a speed sencor problem. The speedometer intermitently stops working and when that happens the tranny stops shifting propperly. I have replaced the rear dif sensor and rewired it this did nothing. I was told that the 93 and 94 have a different sensoe that all other broncos. Has anyone heard of any solutions???

  • i have a 89 eddie bauer bronco (fullsize) with the rear end out.i can't find a used one for that year model and i can't afford a new one.would the rear end out of a 78 ford club wagon work?

  • I'm in the process of selling my sports car to buy a Bronco for work. Going from a sports car to a work truck is a big jump, I still want to have a good looking car and that is why i choose the Bronco. I don't know what is good and what isn't. I found a 94' with 198k and he said he got new bearings, crank shaft, oil pan, and he re-sealed the engine. He wants 4,500. Is that a good buy? or do you have any suggestions?

    no its way overpriced. Try for lower miles and a cleaner car for that kind of money.

    I have a 1991 ford Bronco one day while driving down the road it started leakin transmission fluid we pulled over and noticed it was a stream sort of like when you change your oil we checked the plugs but it seemed to be coming from the end where the engine and the trans. meet ive had two mechanics look at it and one said it was just the O rings and that they just need to be replaced and the trans. needs to be resealed but the other said it was the pump, but it hasnt leaked since and it shifts and drives just fine. Can any one Help or suggest what it might be? thanx
  • I am having the same exact problem, and I was wondering if you got the o-rings replaced. I would really appreciate any advice you might have. Thanks.

    Driving home the other day the 'tin [non-permissible content removed]' died. After getting it towed home we discovered no spark. There is power going to the coil but NO power out of the coil. We changed coils and still no spark...any ideas?

    Please remember that I am car illiterate when answering:) I just bought a 93 Ford Bronco at a good deal which has the check engine light on. Had it tested and it said that the throttle body sensor was not getting enough power. They suggested cleaning the wires to the sensor to see if that corrects the problem. I know where the sensor is but how should I disconnect the wires? What else should I try if this does not correct the problem? When I drive at a constant speed it is fine but the check engine light is on(does not stay on continuously). When I am in stop and go traffic and try to accelerate it sometimes hesitates as if I lost power.

    Also, my interior lights came on and wouldn't go off(had to remove the bulbs) and my rear top reverse lights did the same. Think there is a wire short but not sure where to start to look for it. My windshield wipers will work if thumped on and not sure if this is wiring or the wiper motor. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Shirley
  • I have a 68 Ford Bronco that seems to have a problem with the transfer case. When I am driving in 2 high, it jumps out of gear & into neutral. I can drive it in 4 high & it is fine. We have taken the transfer case apart & don't see anything wrong with it. Does anyone have any suggestions how to fix this problem?

    When starting forward it sometimes clunks but if you start gently it doesn't. It drives fine and shifts okay but sometimes slow depending on how you accelerate.What causes the clunk. Is it the differentials catching up or sliding of the driveshaft splines?
  • :sick: I have a 93 Bronco the front tires sit out wide from bottom to top, like a whop sort of. What is the cause of this and how can I fix it.
  • Hello,

    I have a 95 Bronco that has a bad transmission. Does anyone have any ideas for the cheapest way to fix it? Rebuild? Used tranny? Also, if I go to a junk yard, are there other Ford vehicles that use the same transmission? Would an F150 tranny work too? Any help would be great. Also, any suggestions for how much a used tranny should cost for this truck?

  • I was driving along just fine when all of a sudden it ran real rough (it would cut out and then roar back to life only to die again)and then died and came back on two seconds later and then died for good. Let it sit for a few days and then it would start again but backfired REALLY bad and died shortly after. After that it wouldn't start at all no matter what. Power to the coil primary but no spark out. Replaced the coil, stator, ignition module, and brain (from junkyard), then timed it. After all this, car started and ran for a few mins, but died again the instant it was revved up after about 5 mins of running fine. Once again no spark from coil. Five speed Manual trans, 2.9L, 140K miles. NO CLUE WHAT TO DO!!! HELP PLEASE!!!
  • I've noticed whenever I'm out about 1/2 mile I start losing power. She starts great and seems to truck along, but cannot seem to pick up speed. A reputable person suggested that the fuel pump wasn't getting enough pressure. Soooo we replaced it. When that didn't resolve anything, we went ahead and replaced the other one, too. Yeah, there's one in the gas tank, also. Now we're still back where we started. Finally we had someone put it on a computer that's supposed to tell all. It's pointed to the ignition module. We're going to try that. Someone also tried to say it was the catalytic converter. If anyone could shed some light on their opinions, we'd truly appreciate it. Thanks
  • I have a 1993 Eddie Bauer Bronco and needed to replace the water pump. As you are looking at it the 7" bolt on the left side that holds the pump to the block, the head broke off. The pump has been removed, but the rest of the bolt is still in the block with 2" protruding from the block. The bolt seems to be siezed and I have already tried vice grips. This bolt is very tough, does anyone have any suggestions on how to remove it?
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright Sonoma, CaliforniaPosts: 58,445
    There is a tool for this (many types of tool actually) that's way better than a vice grip:

    You may want to soak the bolt in solvent if you can by squirting stuff in there and also hit it sharply with a hammer a few times.

    You're only going to get once good chance to get this out, and if you break it off in the block it's going to have to be drilled out--which is a royal PITA.

    So, the right tool, solvent, and if safe, even some heat.

    Here are some ideas for you:

  • Joe, I replaced all applicable sensors and the transmission with a rebuilt Jasper. On occasions it kicks into 2nd and out of gear completely. I have had two different trans shops look at it and neither can find the problem as it will not repeat when they drive it. I can drive it for days and it runs like a champ and then it will act up. I am at my wits end on what is the problem. One guy told me to have the Ford dealer re-flash the computer with default specs. The dealer said my year (1992)can not be re-flashed. Have you received any feedback to your problem? And have you thought about having the computer reset with your model?
  • Thanks it worked like a champ, I did have to get a torch and heat it a little. unfortunately the new bolt I put into the block, I assume had either a stress fracture or not enough tensil strength, because before I even had the new bolt snugged it also broke off flush with the block. My neighbor came by to assist and ended up breaking the tip of an easy out off in the bolt. I know I need to drill this out and put in a "helicoil" but how can I drill through the broken easy out piece. I deperately need some help on this one. Any suggestions?
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright Sonoma, CaliforniaPosts: 58,445
    Arghhh....easy outs are not "easy" to drill---they are very hard steel....a diamond bit and a lot of patience I'm afraid....and you have to be sure not to drill a hole bigger than the bolt size of course. Take your time with this, don't rush.
