V8 5.8 It was running just fine, i stopped to let a friend out of the bronco, put on reverse to back up and leave and when i shifted to drive again, rpm needle went to 0. fuel needle went from being half full to FULL..... then i noticed the acceleration was of, and if i hit throttle the rpms of the car would drop like if it was getting fuel congestion in the motor!! I HAVE NO CLUE WHATS WRONG... is it sensors. is it transmission. is it cables. or motor? ???? Can anyone help?
#278 of 350 85 Bronco 2.8L 6cyl Won't start just clicks
Jun 16, 2012 (9:45 am)
I've got an 85 Bronco 2.8L 6cyl 5 Speed. Engine runs like a champ. Got a starting problem.
It all started 2 days ago when my husband was driving it and said as he got to work, the radio stopped working, his gauges would not work, and neither would his blinkers. Went to his work, jump started him, drove to O'rielys and replaced the battery after 9 years (lol). Started right up then and there. We looked at the copper connections on the back of the alternator, saw they didn't have a great connection, so we put a bolt on the screw to ensure the connectors would stay on. The next day, my husband drove it again: started up right in the morning, he got off work, made 3 close range stops, made a 4th stop and needed a jump again. Again, he would try to start, but it only made a repetitive clicking noise. Jumped him, drove it home, and again, only clicking when trying to start. So we replaced the alternator and the voltage regulator, and still a clicking noise. We jumped it once again, but after about 10 minutes of just idling, I smelled burning plastic. Come to find out, the voltage regulator had a crack in the black plastic on the back and it was EXTREMELY hot to touch, only after 10 minutes. I'm not sure as where we need to look for a problem. It has 950k on it currently and the odometer has rolled over once already. It's definitely been worth the money spent so I'm trying to figure a solution before I get too frustrated and just trash it. My husband is a diesel mechanic so he can understand all the lingo. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you and have a great day!

I have a 96 ford bronco, 5.8 automatic, runs and starts good, but when I turn on the headlights the engine dies, would seem to be a short, but does anyone know if it could be another known problem ?

One thought that comes to mind is that it may be your alternator. It may not be producing enough electricity to power your engine with the headlights on. Anyone else have any ideas?

the other night i was leaving a club, jumped in my 1992 bronco eddie bauer and turn the key when all i got was the engine turning over. the next day i tested the wiring from the fuel pump and there was no power to the pump except for the gas gauge wire. i also noticed that the ignition control module mounted on the firewall in front of the driverside is missing one of the two screws. could this be the issue of it not firing up?
