I have a 1989 Ford Bronco with 134000 miles. I just had to have the starter and starter solenoid replaced this week. It had been working fine up until today. Now the engine turns over and you can hear the starter running but the engine will not start. Any suggestions on where I should begin? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you recieve voltage to the ignition coil? This should be 12V +/-.5V with the ignition in the run position. Do you have an ignition control box on the driver's side fenderwell?

I haven't checked the ignition coil yet. I guess I will go ahead and start there. If that is not it what would be your next suggestion? Fuel pump perhaps?

Thank you very much for your reply.

Ok I am sorry I assumed you narrowed this down to an ignition problem. Make things simple. Take the coil plug wire off the distributor and place a spark plug (either from the car or if you have an old one) and check to see if it fires (make sure this is grouned well to the body). You might want to have an assisstant crank the engine so you can see a spark. Next remove a plug from the easiest cylinder to reach and do the same test. If both are sucessful and the firing order is correct then there is a fuel issue. Check the pump operation by checking the fuel pressure at the service port on the rail. You can use your finger but if in doubt then use a guage to check the pressure. This is a Throttle Body Injection correct?
