#304 of 352 1993 Ford Bronco Transmission ?:(
May 04, 2009 (7:33 am)
1993 Bronco EB 5.8 E4OD. I'm lost. If I sart up my Bronco and put it in drive it will drive for about 5 miles just perfect. Transmission shifts smooth, everything is great. After about 5 miles when I come to a stop and then try to move forward again it will not shift out of first gear. If I shut it down and let it cool off it will drive normal for another short distance. I have changed the transmissoin fluid and filter and was about to put in a whole new transmission until yesterday when someone with a 1996 Ford Bronco told me they were having a similar problem and fixed it by changing a sensor?
I went down to the auto parts store and they priced a speed sensor? solenoid sensor? throttle position sensor?
to be quite honest, I don't have a clue!
any help would be greatly appreciated..thanks.

I just bought a 94 full size EB Bronco 5.8 4x4 with only 69,000 miles. I've noticed that when I accelerate at full throttle from a stop it will lag, almost slow before it shifts to second. Not like slipping, but like it is being held back. This is annoying me.
Also, there is a kind of loose u-joint feeling when stopping and taking off, but it does it three or four times each time.

I see that the post was done in 09' but was wondering if you ever found out what the problem was. I also own a 93 ford bronco EB 5.8 and have the similar problem. I seem to drive it all around town and after it gets hot I try speeding up from a complete stop by putting my foot down on the pedal it seems to just sit in first gear and not shift... any suggestions?

I have a 1995 bronco with 113k on it and its doing the exact same thing.drives fine for about five min then it loosed power ,to suddenly regain.my inlaw has bin working in Ford engines for over 40
years and he said to change the distributor cap ,sometimes water seeps in,its bin raining here in northeast jersey so it kind of makes sense.I'm gonna have my distributor cap and spark plugs and wires replaced and check back on outcome tomorrow...

I picked up a 95 bronco with 113444mi on it. I replaced the dist cap & wires as it was running rough in wet weather &that seemed to clear that problem. Now ,it will idle ok while in neutral,but as soon as I put it in gear it will still idle but will not take any gas. It will chug, back fire etc.but won't accelerate. I ended up going a few miles at idle. Also the trans linkage is very loose,sloppy.

i also have an 81 bronco and i had the problem of there being no radio at all and none of the wires being there to rig one up easy... so first of all i found a ford double din cd player to go in it... and i got the plugs for it from a scrap yard (i think you call them piggy backs there) and i was lucky enough to have mate who was able to rewire a new harness for the radio... aparently it was easy according to him... but i am sure you could find a spurious wireing diagram on the net or in an old chilton manual or haynes manual... it may be more simple and reliable than using the harness
good look from england...
