I am having trouble starting my truck, but once it starts-runs good. It doesn't happen every time I start the truck-but most of the time. It turns over, but takes a few seconds to start.I've done a tuneup, fuel filter, new fuel pump. Any ideas????
Where and what is the ECT sensor? What are the symptoms when they go bad? I have done EVERYTHING i can think of to fix my Bronco II and it still stalls out and wont run. It is getting plenty of fuel and would not start with either. Replaced: Fuel filter, Module, Pick up coil, Coil, Cap, Rotor, Wires, Etc.
The ECT is the coolant temperature sensor. On a 2.9 it is located near the thermostat. Make sure you replace the one that has two wires, the one that has a single wire is for the gauge. The sensor have a specific resistance at a specific temperature, you can test this with an ohm meter.

My old ranger (89 4x4, 2.9) always started hard...and over a period of two years I replaced everything I could think of ...then finally gave up and decided to live with it. A month later I sold the truck. Good luck.
