1996 Ford Bronco Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1996 Ford Bronco

Tubes for the EGR system (exhaust gas recirculation) can break, causing an exhaust leak and noise under the hood.

Failure is very common in the ignition module, causing intermittent stalling or a "No start" condition.
