Subject: FTE Small - 88 Bronco II sporadically dies

I just bought my BII a week ago with the intentions of fixing everything so
it would be a very reliable vehicle.
The BII dies on me. This is a sporadic thing. It will run GREAT and then
everything cuts out and it dies. This happens in the morning right after it
was started and in the afternoon after it has been running for an hour.
I sent it to the local Ford dealer, and I talked to the tech to see what
needs replaced(I am not real good at diagnostics :) ), the mechanic was
still looking at it and will continue today, but the service manager's first
comment was "It needs a new motor, because it has too much blow by".
This vehicle has 78,000 miles and the engine sounds GREAT! I am not buying
the "New Motor" story. I was expecting one of the following: EGR, O2
Sensor, Catalytic converter. Not "New Motor".
Anybody have any ideas of what the problem may be from experience?
Thanks!!

Mine went out recently on my 94 Ranger. I had no warning, it just went.
There were no other problems associated to it beforehand that I was aware
of.

Subject: FTE Small - exhaust system

Does anyone know of any bolt-on exhaust systems that would fit a 1996
Explorer Sport, 4WD, manual trans? The only one I have seen is made by
Borla. I would really like to get a Flowmaster or Gibson. Are these better
than Borla? What if I bought the model made for the 4dr, could it be custom
fit for the sport? If it is just a matter of cutting it shorter, it
shouldn't be a problem but I imagine the bends are different. Anybody know
a good dealer or shop that can do a custom job in the Philadelphia area?
Thanks for any advice.

Okay, I heard back from the dealership. They are saying it may be the
Ignition Module(better answer than ENGINE), even though the truck did not
act up while in the shop(of course) and that the Catalytic converter and O2
Sensor checked out okay...
I will replace a ignition module myself, first(can you believe he quoted
$300 parts/labor to replace this???).

I had the situation with a 85 f-150, 300cu.in. 6cyln. It came down to a ign.
modgule. I couldn't believe that a little part the size of a box of matches
could do so much damage. You might want to try that. RLC

Yes, and there is a special wrench for the job also. It's only $15.00. I
read you're first part and answered it . Low and behold the same thing the
dealer said. RLC
