5.0 EFI motor won't start

I've got a 1991 5.0 in my Bronco, uses the RJM wiring harness that eliminates the smog pump and EGR system. Uses and A9 computer, and the engine is completely stock. Up until now, it's run like a champion, but after sitting for about a week, it refuses to start. Turn the key on, the fuel pump cycles...

You need a new fuel pump. When I replaced the mechanical pump on my rig with an electric pump, I suddenly had access to about another 2 gallons of gas from the main tank. The mechanical pump just couldn't pump it out.

Too much tire, you need to either get smaller tires or re-gear your differentials. The PO didn't do it because for 2 axles it'll cost around $1000.

Good time to convert to a 3g or Delco alternator with internal regulator. Buy it at Napa if you can, they have a lifetime warranty, if I remember right. The conversion is pretty easy, and well worth it.

The problem may net be the Alternator. Depends on your setup. Do you have an external or internal regulator? Check the connection between the battery and the charging wire, and check the wire itself. They wire may be loose or corroded, or the regulator may be bad. You can also pull the alternator an...

Not being drivable because it doesn't have a drive train would cut the value by half, for sure. But a blown headgasket is a pretty easy fix. As long as the rest of the bottom end of the motor is OK, it may shave off a few thousand. What the hell, offer him 5k and see if he bites. It's all academic a...

I don't know about the catalytic convertor issue, I don't live in Oregon.

As for dying at lights and in traffic, are you using the Vehicle Speed Sensor? If not, then you should install one. If you are, then you need to put a code reader on the motor.

It doesn't look like there's quite enough material on the bracket to hold the switch if I take a cut-off wheel to it. Might as well try it, though. If the bracket doesn't work at all, its a wash if I chop it up.

Well, that's not really a useful function. By the time your MC gets low enough to set it off, you'll be steering off the road and hoping for some nice soft bushes. Maybe I'll make it into a check engine light or something.

Hey Guys,

I've never really thought about it before, because it never did anything on my rig, but what is that little red Brake light on the dash supposed to indicate? Brake failure? Brake lights out?
