Greetings! Just purchased my 'new' bronco last night. Going to use it as a project vehicle for my 10 year old and I to work on together. Due to my job we are moving around the globe quite a often, so we needed something to work on and distract us both from having to start fresh and new locations. Very excited to have found this forum and I am sure I will be reaching out when I get into some frustration during this endeavor! Wish us luck!

Yo Mikey,
Welcome to FSB!
Your fine looking 95 will be a great father-son project. Did same with our sons on the 78.

Find out if speed control, if equipped recall work completed by dealership. Call local dealer or register and view status @ Welcome to Ford Owner | Official Ford Owner Site; or @ Recalls Look-up by VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) ... have VIN ready.
"Summary: ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS, PASSENGER VEHICLES, SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, AND MOTOR HOMES CHASSIS, THE SPEED CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH MAY, UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, LEAK INTERNALLY AND THEN OVERHEAT, SMOKE, OR BURN. THIS COULD RESULT IN AN UNDERHOOD FIRE."
See this guide by jowens1126 to confirm recall status @ 93 & 94-96 Cruise Control Recalls Repair
Note that the 93 recall is different than 94-96.

Here is the 1995 Bronco Dealer Brochure

Right on. I lived in Dayton for a few years. Currently in Fernley, about 30 miles away from you. Just let me know if you ever need a hand or want to go on a little wheeling trip

I appreciate it. Currently troubleshooting an issue on the bronco. I get an intermittent check engine line and the temperature gauge isn’t working. I read a few other posts on this forum and I think I have it figured out....going to replace the sending unit and the sensor....

So I replaced the coolant temp sensor and the sending unit...driving to work gauge still didn’t work and the check engine light came on. I am going to have the codes checked (as I don’t have a code reader). My gut says thermostat is stuck open....gauge says cold, check engine light and it’s not getting hot which leads me to think coolant is constantly flowing....the adventure continues.

What is your job? Do a thermostat, hoses, thermostat housing, radiator, and water pump all at once.

Adrianspeeder,

sorry for the delayed response. But I replaced the thermostat and everything is working as advertised now. I also replaced the EGR valve and it is now running really well.
