    My symptoms started as distributor pickup coils going bad every 30 or so miles. I couldn't find any shorts or grounds so I finally found a motorcraft coil and it lasted but then it started eating ICMs. I tried a mechanic but after several months, a new computer and 10 ICMs they gave up and I got...

    So, I have what I believe is an aftermarket ICM. Whoever had this Bronco before me did a lot of redneck ingenuity.

The previous owner installed an electric starter switch on the dash so to fire it up, you must turn the key to the start position and press the button to engage the...

    Hey guys! So my 92 bronco with a 351w and E4OD has had an intermittent issue with not wanting to start. Sometimes the key will start it and sometimes it won't.

    I replaced the ignition switch and the ignition lock cylinder, but I can't get it to turn over via key. I have to jump the solenoid by the battery. Any thoughts on what the issue could be? Edit: It's an '86 Bronco XLT

    I've got an 86 with a 302, recently just wouldn't start, have replaced cap, coil, TFI module, pickup, plugs, and the wires, but still won't start. Tried both HO and non HO firing order, timing has gone 360 degrees, just will not start. Is there anyone who has had this problem and could offer...
