Dipstick goes in. It appears to be disconnected at the transmission. Is this something I can fix myself? If so, how?

I just had my engine rebuilt an I think the vacuum lines r wrong...I build pressure in my gas tank....HELP

A clicking sound but when i touch the brack it stops.

i got the steering column down but i dont know how to disconnect the shifter arm

I have a 95 ford bronco EL 4WD W/147.000 miles on it. Starts in all weather conditions, drives 1/2 to 2 miles to a store. I then try to restart 1-2 min later it wont start up. it will restart after waiting about 45 mins? shop has confirmed all is ok ( crank, new battery, lights electrical system etc..). It has a new distributor. It has been in the shop several times without repair! Any idea why this continues to happen??

I loaned my Bronco to someone who will remain girlfriend :)

5.8W, F.I. that never had any prior fuel problems.

While low on fuel and idling, engine eventually died due to fuel starvation as it ran out of gas. I'm told that what was added was "unleaded gas" but the engine hasn't started since.

At the filler, what I smell isn't as pungent as 'gas'.

She grabbed a red plastic fuel canister that had the "gas" in it. She has other equipment around her ranch that uses diesel fuel, but she's assured me that it wasn't diesel fuel that she put in.

Other than the gas cap being opened briefly, the fuel system hasn't yet been opened. It's a back up vehicle, not my daily driver, and I haven't touched it in a year and.

Whatever that fluid was, I suspect that it's now some hard varnish-like dried crud.

I can (could the day I had it towed home) hear the pump when in ACC and ON.

I suspect that to do this right, I'll have to drop the tank. If I have to drop the tank, I'll replace the pump at that time.

When I replace the fuel filter....should I attempt to blow air from there back towards the tank?

Is there some solvent that I should put in the tank hours/days prior to working on it?

If there is a solvent to use prior, should I let it sit in the fuel line from the tank to where I've opened at the fuel filter....and then drain it after the solvent has had time to work?

I want my Bronco back!

This great truck has never left me anywhere and, although it hurts at times to feed it, I love it and want to keep it running for many more years.

It's clear to me, even with my limited skills, that I should clean the entire fuel system from tank to injectors.

How do I do that properly?

Thanks in advance

turns over but won't fire

Trucks been non-op past 6 or so years. Tried inj. cleaner. Checked connectors. Generally seems to run o.k. but still sometimes gets a dirty inj. Don't have a emissions manual or breakout box. Any way to check o-2 sensor with ohm meter?

No noise if not engaged. Happens when turning the wheels

when you first start the engine it runs good, after it go from fast idle to idle it will run ok for a bit and then wants to die. it sounds like it is gasping for air. If I unplug the MAP sensor it goes to high idle and runs ok, but when I plug in back in it want to die again. have changed MAP sensor, O2 sensor and ignition module. any other ideas?

if you try and drive it when you accelerate it with fall all over itself then take off. if just driving it miss out until it get warmed up it runs good. any ideas? changed ignition module.

ignition module and distributor and computer .it died one day going down road and has never cranked since dnt know what to do.for awhile everytime u stopped it would die

What would s real ballpark figure run?

their is power going to the starrter but it wont turn over


I just bought a Bronco a few days ago. Today, I took it to Grease Monkey to get her up to speed to pass emissions. When I go to pull out, the parking brake is on. I release it. Just after I get done with emissions, both rear brakes start smoking. I'm wondering what the probable cause of this issue is.
The brake fluid is topped off, and steady. The Pedal feel will go between rock hard and spongy. The brakes will grab so hard that I can't move out of a parking space, then after they cool, it will be hard to move from the space, then be ok for a while. I'm hoping that it's the parking brake so I can just unhook it.

hello, i have a 93 ford bronco 5.8 that i picked up real cheap for only 1200 bucks. it has been a dream of mine for so long to actually own one. it has some problems that are running me through loops and bringing me to dead ends.

1: it idles very rough, it only does it when sitting still in drive or park and ocassionally when stopping at a light it dies

2: the fuel guage does not work

3: the cruise control doesnt work

4: the steering is loose, it has about 3 inches of play towards both directions without the truck responding.

any help would be greatly appreciated! can feel free to email @ if you are willing to help!
