1990 Ford Bronco Question: Hard Starting

 

Question

Visitor, Paris, TX, February 18, 2011, 08:10

I have a 1990 Ford Bronco with 126,000 actual miles. Recenlty overhauled engine. New fuel pump, filter etc. For a while now, even before the overhaul, the truck was difficult to start at times. Always difficult when the engine is cold, sometimes difficult when engine is warm. Think I may place excessive wear on my starter if I do not correct this problem.

    Hard starting is due to either fuel pressure issues or an air intake issue. Could be a lack of spark too. If an air intake issue - is the engine getting too much or not enough air?

    Thanks.

    I pulled the vacuum line loose and it has fuel dripping from it. I guess that is the likely culprit.
