1990 Ford Bronco Problems
Tubes for the EGR system (exhaust gas recirculation) can break, causing an exhaust leak and noise under the hood.
If there is a vibration or noise at highway speed, it could be from the front driveshaft and may require replacement of the double cardan joint. A double cardan joint is a type of driveshaft joint that uses two universal joints.
If a noise from the rear end is heard when going around turns or after driving at highway speed for an extended period, this could be caused by a failing deferential clutch kit. An updated differential clutch kit available.
1990 Ford Bronco Questions
Looking at buying a bronco but the 4x4 shifter is not connected it just swings freely and can actually be just lifted up and pulled out. Is there a simple connection for this or is it a much bigger problem???
When the old ford is turned off, the battery drains. I put an amp meter in series and can see the drain. (I think it was 150-200ma.) I then break the circuit by taking the amp meter and removing it from the battery. I do this for 1 second and then reconnect the wires to put the amp meter back...
89 Bronco Last time started and I put it in gear and it died. I smacked the steering column. Now it won't do a thing.
