Was trying to pull a friends chevy out of some severe rutted mud environment today and all of a sudden a huge amount of smoke started coming from under the truck....briefly....I thought it was a tire smoking as the front of the truck was on pavement.. It didn't keep me from continuing to drive on up on the road and continued to pull him out with another truck helping by pulling me too. Afterward I looked back to where I was stopped and it started smoking and look like about a half a gallon of transmission fluid had dumped below the truck. Checking under the hood...the was no sign of leakage but no fluid showed on the stick. Looking under the truck show signs of a small amount of leakage where I had parked....coming from a circular seal of some sort under the truck. I can't find it on any schematic. My friend then went to buy fluid....took about 20 minutes....I never turned off the engine.....we added about half a quart first....saw no almost 1 1/2 quarts more to to show full n the stick. Drove about a mile at between 20 and 30 mph...stopped...saw no leakage....hit the highway at 60 mph for abut 4 miles and parked it.

The circular plug looking thing is about the size of a half dollar...appears to have a rubber oring or gasket above the metal....can spin with my finger and can press in and out slightly. I was thinking it might be missing a snap ring retainer but I couldn't find one at the site. I was definitely overworking the truck and it no doubt overheated. Is this just some safety mechanism that engaged of have I possibly really harmed the truck in some way. It appears to be working fine but I'd really hate to break dowm somewhere where the wreckers can't go.
It continued to run. It did not do it all the time but third time is it just stopped.Now when I turn ignition it just clicks. Was this a bad starter all along or was there another issue that caused this and will do same thing when I replace my starter?

I bought this truck wrecked and it had set up a couple of years. It runs really good on the highway but it's idling really fast (1100 to 1600 rpm) and it floods really bad once you turn it off. I have t hold the pedal to the floor to restart it and then it sputters for a while until it levels out again, I'm probably getting about 6 mpg right now. One friend thinks its the throttle position sensor and another thinks its the fuel pressure regulator. The local part stores in my area only have adapters to test the codes for Fords going back to 1997 and I can't afford to take it to the Ford dealer. My plan is to start replacing parts I can buy online one at a time until I find the right one. Mass air flow sensor and idle air control sensor are other other possibilities but are further down my list. Any advice would be appreciated.

what would cause my manifold to start turning cherry red on both sides? not only that but now it sounds like my rockers are hitting somewhere.
So I have a set of spark plug wires on my truck but this is the third set I have currently been through in the last year. The wires and boots begin tearing causing spark and electrical discharge. What am I to do to keep this from happening. I am wanting to get the long tube performance wires but I don't have the money for it and I don't know if they would be any better. What should I do. I'm going to buy a new set tomorrow but what can I do to prevent them from tearing?
My truck is a daily driver but I recently had a mechanic replace the fuel pump and sending unit. Now after a few weeks when I hit a bumpy road or a bump it shuts the fuel pump off. I can wiggle the pump on top of the tank on the sending unit and every now and then it turns the pump back on. What do I do. I've worked on vehicles for awhile but this is new to me.
I have bought two brand new water pumps from O'Reilly and the ball bearing have come off attached to the fan and cut through my radiator and it happened to the one that was on it then two new one's. can someone please tell me how I might fix this. My bronco also shakes and vibrates really bad.
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???
Misses on idle--Hasn't had tune-up in long time
I can't get it to move at all in 2 wheel drive high and 4 wheel high is the same way? So, I tried 4 wheel low and it works?
Transmission has fluid, but, the transfer case was very low in fluid. It actually wouldn't go into 4 low till after adding fluid to transfer case.
And, now that is the only way it will drive? (No problem shifting)
Did I blow my transmission?
