HELP!!! FOR MY 1987 Bronco

I ran out of gas in my 1987 Ford Bronco[I think]So I put gas in it and still would not start. I pumped the gas peddle it smelled like gas so I left it sit for a couple hours.When I returned I called a tow truck but before he could tow it I tried to start it and it started right up,but while talking to the driver my Bronco died again I thought I ran out of gas again.So hook up to tow truck & towed to gas station put $10.00 in tank still nothing!I have fuel injectors do I need to prime them & were are they located?

Re: HELP!!! FOR MY 1987 Bronco

if you smell gas and it isnt running, it sounds more like youre not getting spark... bad coil maybe?

Re: HELP!!! FOR MY 1987 Bronco

When my fuel pump went out, of course I pulled over on the side. I tried it a few times and nothing. I called a friend and after about 15 minutes of waiting it cranked right up and I drove it about 1 mile than it died again. After that it was all over and I could no longer here the fuel pump priming when I would turn the ignition on. To me it sounds pretty much like what you experienced.

Good Luck,
Brian

Gasoline injectors don't have to be bled - that's only for mechanical diesels. Always start by pulling the codes, but my prime suspects are the coil, the fuel pump, and the ignition module.
