We have a 6cyl bronco that has been sitting for 5 yrs and we started using again.
We have done the following: tune-up, oil change, new battery, new belts, airlines, brakes, water pump, thermostat and fuel filter. It ran good and the first bout of hesitation began we changed the fuel filter did not have any issues until 100 miles later now the same symptoms have resurfaced loss of acceleration, hesitation and rough idling, seems like it is only running on 5 cylinders. Could it be a sensor? Help! Thanks
