1986 Ford Bronco? Somehow ya gotta bite the bullet and get an upgrade. Fords just aren't built to last, so may I suggest a used Toyota or Nissan truck? Sometimes ya just gotta let old Betsy go...ya know?

Miller14, there is a website called www.broncoii4x4.com. if you love the bronco, I would suggest registering on it. There was a person on there that had similar problems and it turned out to be the distributor. I would register and post your problem in detail, this gang knows there broncos.
