#343 of 352 Enbgine loses power almost like plugged filter
Mar 08, 2009 (5:56 am)
My 1988 Bronco II was running fine when the engine began to lose power almost like a plugged fuel filter. The filter was pretty full so I changed it and then it ran for a week (about 100 miles) then it did it again it stopped 5 minutes after starting it. I messed with it for awhile that it started running again it ran down the highway for ten minutes the it stopped again. The weather was about 70 degrees and sunny so it is not freezing up. The took off the line at the filter and there is fuel there. then I took the line off the fuel regulator there was no fuel there. The only thing I can think of is the high pressure fuel pump. It that what it acts like when it goes out?

hook up a fuel pressure guage and watch it... Chances are the high pressure pump located on your frame rail is toast. It will run while it is cold but once the pump heats up it will fail...

#348 of 352 Sticking throttle
Jun 24, 2009 (5:51 pm)
I have a 1993 Bronco with a 302 that is usually very reliable. This morning it was doing fine on the interstate cruising along at about 70. When I got stopped at the exit it acted like the throttle was stuck, idleing around 2000 rpm. Didn't need to use much throttle to get the rest of the way to work. Once put in neutral revved even higher. Cut motor off and restarted idled fine but had a little miss. Cut motor off again and restarted and idled normal. When I left work now it won't even start. I'm getting spark from the coil. Don't know what to check next? Any ideas.

My truck started the next morning. Bought a code reader and it was the throttle position sensor and the egr position sensor. Changed both and runs like a champ.
