1992 Ford F-250 ProblemsThe tachometer sensor may fail
The tachometer sensor may fail; if the tachometer needle jumps around and the transmission has harsh shifts or does not upshift, this sensor should be checked. This sensor is mounted in a cover at the front of the motor.
The FIPL (fuel injection pump lever) sensor may fail. When this sensor goes bad, shifting is erratic and the Check Engine Light should illuminate. Proper adjustment of this sensor (when replacing it) is a must or the problem will continue. See service manuals for proper adjustment of the FIPL sensor.
A ticking noise may develop from the engine due to a warped exhaust manifold. Damaged exhaust manifolds will require replacement to correct this issue.

there is no reverse or neautral just bought truck don't know other than trans filter has been replaced hoping could be linkage adjustment or ext component to tranny.As soon as you shift from park to any position it is only goes forward
The fuel pump went out on the truck and now I have fuel once again and the truck will run but when I try to accelerate (even in park) it falls straight on it's face. now if I unhook vacuum on map sensor I can accelerate but that makes the truck not want to shift.
About 4 days ago my truck wouldn't start until I smacked on the gas tank, so I replaced the fuel pump but now when truck starts it is running rough and there is black smoke coming from exhaust. Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.
1992 Ford F-250 RecallsFord Extends Warranty Coverage for 1990-1993 F150-F350 Trucks Fuel Pump/Sender Assembly
Ford has extended the warranty coverage of the fuel pump and sending unit assembly in 1990-1993 F150, F250, and F350 trucks. In some trucks, the check valve may become damaged inside the fuel pump unit. This can cause fuel to travel from one tank to the other, creating an overflow condition. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak may result in a fire. Dealers will repair the fuel pump and sending unit for up to 12 years or 150,000 miles from the original warranty start date.
Ford has recalled certain 1992-1994 E and F Series vehicles due to improper tension in the accessory drive belt. On some vehicles, the belt can detach from the pulleys, which can cause multiple system failures. Dealers will install a new tensioner pulley, drive belt, belt guide, and idler pulley.
