Hey got a quick one for you guys. This morning the bronco would just keep spinning and would start. I held my foot down on the gas and it started. I didnt trouble shoot anything yet cause i am dropping the new motor in it tomorrow just wondering what could cause that?

Thanks
ken

If you put the pedal to the floor, the EEC goes into "Clear-flood mode," which is almost exactly what happens in a carbureted setup when you flood it and do the same to clear the cylinders of excess fuel. The injectors are cut off; their pulse widths go to zero.

Therefore, if you were sitting there, cranking away for a while and then put your foot to the floor, and then it started, you more than likely had a flooded engine. You should NEVER have to touch the gas pedal to start a fuel injected engine. Anyone remember when Ford coined "touchless starting?"

Check your TPS and ECT, make sure they're playing nice.

I thought you were getting a long block. If that's the case, you will be using all the sensors you have now. Unless of course you plan on spending another grand. I take it your back is better...good.

i do have a long block. my back is feeling good enough to put the engine in. and i am going to test all the sensors and see what i need to get.
