    Noobie Bronco Tech Questions. Flame free zone!
    Howdy there! So a few months ago I came across a beat up 96 F250 with a 5.8 that a buddy of mine wanted to scrap.

So my fuel gauge doesn’t work properly and if the truck is sitting for 10 minutes or longer the fuel gauge goes to about half full and when I turn the key it goes way past full.

    1980-'96 Bronco Tech
    (91000 original miles no bull) I am waiting on a scanner to see if it will help me. Not getting any codes. The beast runs fine until it approaches running temperature then starts to deteriorate until a stall occurs. Over winter it ran fine unless I took a long trip but the cooler weather helped...
