1990 Ford Bronco Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1990 Ford Bronco

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.

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.
