1992 Ford Bronco 5.0 from Czech Republic


Super car


Exhaust - wear.

Brakes - wear.

Gimbal cross - wear.


General Comments:

It's the best car I've ever owned. I've had about 40 cars. The Bronco suits me absolutely. The engine is a bit weak when towing a trailer, but what I like is a relaxed ride. Reliable and relatively simple car. I use it for daily driving. I'm exotic here in Europe :o)

1992 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer 5.0 (E40D) from North America


Beautiful and WORTHLESS!!!


(E40D) 4 speed automatic transmission had delayed engagement.

(Ford AOD) replacement trans failed completely.

Exhaust manifold castings are poor at best. One cracked.

Very low HP for an eight cylinder. A Chevy 4.3 V-6 has more.

Gets between 9 to 12 MPG.

Power windows will fail.

General Comments:

Cool looking SUV. Looks great in my yard. Too heavy to be a decent 4x4. It is slow and turns on a stack of quarters.

There has yet to be an automatic transmission that would last in these things. The old c-6 can be made to fit, but will cripple your engines ability to run without the electric transmission to communicate with it.

If you are thinking about getting one of these things, don't! Unless you buy mine that is.

1992 Ford Bronco XLT 5.8 - 351 CI. from North America


Buy the ticket, take the ride..


Rear differential was a big headache. I serviced it through the dealer. Initially, they could not diagnose it. They claimed to have test drove it and checked it. I had to bring it back a few blocks after I left the dealership because I immediately heard the problem. I really was disappointed in the dealership. I've never been back for service. This occured at 75K mileage.

I run my Bronco pretty much stock. It has been trouble free most of the 5 years in my possession.

Serpentine belt and battery at 80K. The battery is the highest they have as this beast uses a lot of power.

Master break cylinder at 100K.

I've had a bit more oil burning and coolant leakage through the past 20K. Nothing major.

The leather drivers side seat is wearing out, but the vehicle is 16 years old. Hard to find these seats anymore.

The worst I've had is trying to get tree sap off of the finish. Once it drys, good luck.

A lady rear ended it getting off the freeway one day. I was concerned as I got out to check the damage. There wasn't any!

General Comments:

The car handles very well. I changed the tires out and put on wider Goodyear's.

The 351 Cleveland, V8 has phenomenal pick-up. At 5150 lbs., it still moves out like a demon. Amazing torque, will tow a small house.

Just a really strong and reliable vehicle. It goes through gasoline at a pretty fast clip, but the 30 gallon tank gives you more time in between fills.

30 gallon tank x national average $4.04=121.20 per fill up. And you say it uses gas? And burning oil and leaking coolant at 101,000? And it started around 80,000? That doesn't sound very built Ford tough. Then again, every Ford I've ever had with a V8 had the same thing happen. That's why I made a wiser decision and switched to Buick with no problems.

The toughest engine Ford built, period. I held the it to the floor with intentions of blowing it up, but it wouldn't. It just knocked and eventually came outta it. That was 20k miles ago. It has 170k now and runs like a top. Supposedly the Eddie Bauer edition has a roller rocker motor. Posi rearends and this truck is unstoppable. I literally have put this truck thru hell! I still drive it today with no problems. Maintenance is the key.

Changed it for a Buick? LOL come on now. A Bronco for a Buick. Weird. 5.0 351 4.9-6 are great motors if you maintain them right, and even if you don't they handle stress better than any GM vehicle.

The engine in your Bronco is a 351W not Cleveland. These didn't come with Cleveland engines.
