1996 Bronco XLT 5.8 Won't start.

Recommended Posts

Come home from work, she just died in the road. The engine turns over but won't start up. I was thinking fuel pump,  but before I get to deep I want some advice. Could it be a relay, module or the shut off switch?

Yo Billy,

WELCOME!

I assume it cranks over well, if not let us know.

If it's a 78 Bronco, see https://jalopnik.com/heres-how-you-diagnose-an-engine-that-wont-start-1717491831

 

But if efi equipped, see https://troubleshootmyvehicle.com/ford/4.9L-5.0L-5.8L/how-to-troubleshoot-a-no-start-1

Best bet is that you have a mom and pop parts store that you use and they can loan you tools such as spark or fuel pressure test, etc.  I prefer mom and pop stores over AZ, etc because they usually have better maintained stuff.

Thanks so much for the quick reply,  that's awesome.

Sorry, it would help if I told you what I'm driving.  1996 5.8 xlt. Cranks over good just won't start. 

I checked a couple of things. I can hear the fuel pump come on when I turn on the key. The shut off switch is in the correct position. I Haven't had a chance to check the spark yet, Or to see if it is getting fuel, that's my next test. 

What's your advice if there is no spark?
