92 Bronco 5.8

First off hello my name is Khris I am from Enterprise AL.

My question is. I have just purchased a 92 bronco 5.8. I was told when i bought it that it would run for a while and when it was turned off it would not restart for a while.

I bought it anyway.$500 so its a deal either way.

On the way home I drove it and it has NO POWER. It will not accelerate.
When you start it it idles high maybe 2500 rpm. and driving home i couldn't get much more than that out of it.

It also has an obnoxious smell of gas.

I crawled under it and the cats were hot as He((.

Any ideas???

Well I only drove it about 5 miles. But they were real hot.I crawled under to see if they were still on there and i could feel the heat.
I tried touching one but it was extremely hot. Then i reached and I could touch the muffler but not the cats.

Re: 92 Bronco 5.8

I live in Alabama we don't run cats

I do however think I will pull them off.

I went outside just a few minutes ago and tried starting it and i could hear a exhaust leak at the back side of the motor.I think the bypass is leaking too.

Thanx for the replies keep em coming

I pulled the plugs this morning and the cylinders were full of gas.

I also checked the fire coming out of the wires and its weak as he^^ not a pop spark it just looks weak and sounds like a dud.
