Can any one tell me how I would go about checking to see if the Bronco has
a short in the electrical system that would be drawing the battery down???

I have READ IN MAGAZINES that chevy trucks were the most aestheticaly(sp?)
pleasing truck on the road. I was only saying what I read. I myself have
always LOVED Ford and thought their body styles were better than chevys but
I really don't like the 1996-97 F-150's, though I still love the rest of
the F-series body styles. Simply my thoughts on the matter.

Hey just thought I would write and say that chevrolet was a race car
driver 1n the 20's who was know for losing a whole bunch of races. One
other thing I think sales speak or the companies half of the top ten
sellers are Fords and No.1 F-150 then the explorer and ranger fall in
there the only chevy is the WT1500. There are to dodges so I guess that
puts Chevy down one more notch. If you are wondering the others are a
toyotas camry, dodge caravan and ram pickup, honda accord, ford escort,
and taurus I think it is in my magazine trying to recall from memory
though

Servicing your E40D trans is simple. Yes I would suggest you change the
filter also. No there is not a drain plug it requires removal of the trans
pan. A good investment would be a Do-it-yourself manual. There a several on
the market. The only caution wouild be to NOT overtighten the pan bolts when
you reassemble. Good Luck

Got a test light? Disconnect the negative battery cable and connect the test
light between the battery post and the cable end. If the light is bright Yes
you have a draw. Remember that several electrical components have memory
circuits. Likew the radio and the EEC (electronic engine control). By
disconnecting the fuses, when the light goes out or dims down then you've
found which circuit has the drain. Good luck

Message-Id:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

Help!

I have a 86 F-150 2x4. It stalls and cuts out 30 miles or 30 minutes after
reaching operating temperature. I've replaced the following:

1. spark plugs
2. fuel pump
3. fuel filter
4. fuel line from pump to carburator
5. distributor cap and rotor
6. spark plug wires
7. Adjusted timing.
8. Ignition module

It only starts when the engine cools or rested for at least 30 minutes. I
put a little gas into carb and it starts up and away I go. I suspect fuel
problem but I don't know if there is some temperature dependent control in
the fuel line.

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Sounds like vapor lock. ASAP after it cuts out, unscrew the fuel line from
the carb - carefully in case there is fuel pressure. If no fuel comes out
then you have vapor lock. You've taken care of some items. I would suggest
checking your radiator and/or thermostat. If all else fails, wrap the fuel
line with header wrap insulating tape - this is just a band-aid for the real
problem. Could be the cooling system or you truck could be running lean (hot).

I have a '91 F250, and had before that an '81 F-250.
Before that, I've had 2 (count 'em, two) '73 Chevy C-10s.
The Fords have been more reliable for me. They also have more useable
cab room (I'm pretty big).
I like my distributers up front.
Actually, I think it's more of a personal thing rather than a
quantifiable thing. The Fords simply feel better, and I know they are
more reliable in my experience.

I myself did not like the new body styles until about now. They have slowly
been growing on me. Sorta like the Dodge Ram, just not as fast.

As a motorcycle mechanic for 14 years, I have seen a lot of ignition
technology come and go. I can say from first hand experience, that I
observed Nippon Denso Hot-U Groove plugs, make an astounding 9 rear
wheel H.P. increase over the stock champion plugs. This was on a
Moto-Guzzi (Italian) roadracer. As for Splitfires.........most of the
bikes I worked on in the early 90's, that were diagnosed with a fouled
plug, most often had Splitfires in them.

Add to the removal of the pan and filter replacement, the draining of the torque
converter. You remove the flywheel/torque converter cover(half-moon shaped
sheet metal) and tap over the engine until the drain plug is visible. If you
drain just the pan you change around 5+ quarts(I think) if you drain TC also,
you have to add close to 15 quarts.(start checking level around 13-14). This is
a much more complete fluid change.

This is true, plus Ford was gracious enough to make the third door on
their late model Super Cabs standard. On a Chebby, this is an option. I
hear that Ford is now trying to make a 4 door version of the Ranger in
the 1999 models.

What I would like to know is how bad did he lose his races? Was he 2nd or
3rd, or did he just come in dead last along with the rest of the
stragglers?

Thanks, I'll look for a manual. It sounds like a messy job. When
you remove the pan, does the fluid run out all over the place? If
so, I guess I'll just put down alot of newspaper or get a big
pan to catch it all.

In my area, the large amount of trucks means that there are more and
more used car lots that sell only late model pickup trucks. My
observation is that over 75% of the trucks on these lots are GM.
Where are the Fords? The only explanation I have is that they are
being held onto longer and those buying Chevys are then selling them
to buy a Ford truck or some other type of vehicle.

I assume that all 15 or so quarts circulates between the torque
converter, transmission, and transmission cooler. If this is not
the case, and the converter fluid is separate, do I need to change
it as often? How about refilling? Hopefully my original assumption
is correct and all 15 quarts is added through the filler tube and
the necessary fluid will work its way into the torque converter
(as opposed to having to fill the converter separately).

Yes, all 15 quarts go in through the filler tube and work there way into the
converter... I have heard it suggested, from a knowledgeable(IMHO) Ford tech
guy, that the E4OD is very touchy and that the fluid change should be done
often, (like every 15K miles).

See http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.sonic.net/renzo/wwwboard/messages/131.html and

This is also a good "repair" site for all Fords.

Does anyone have any idea how to set the Timing on an 86 Bronco II.
Somehow the timing has gotten advanced a few degrees and no matter what I
do I can not reset it, or even change it at all.

Thanks, Kent, this is a very helpful site indeed. Incidentally, this
guy,
who seems to know what he is talking about, suggests locking
out the overdrive when doing any towing. I think I will go against
the advice in the owner's guide and start practicing this. I hope
my mileage doesn't suffer. Oh well, it can't be much worse than
it already is.
