88 ford bronco running problem

Hi everyone. I have a 88 bronco full size with a 351 feul injection
automatic. What is happening is when I drive it the odometer hits 2000
rpms and the motor seems to be missing and jerking when I push the
pedal down more to bring the rpms up or down it seems to stop any
help would be great at least what to start with before I take it in for help.
Thanks in advance.

I would like to see an odometer hit 2000RPM...that would be quite interesting.

How did you come to the conclusion that it was missing and jerking? like what did you notice?

look I know it was the tach for rpms and not the odometer and what don't you not understand about it hestiating. I thought this site was about
honest questions and answers and not people harping on the right terms for
each instruments and the functions. thanks for all the honest help everyone.

Okay jackass. You're welcome. Come back some time when you can't stay so long.

Ok...I was just joking, learn to relax.

But really I was wondering how you came to the conclusion that it mis-firing or skipping? just because you "think" it is? because if you are not sure that it is for certain the engine then we cannot help you due to the fact that it could be one of many many different things

Sorry about snapping off Golddragoner you know with emails it can't
show emotion so it's sometimes hard to tell whats a joke.What I mean is if I'm going
up a hill doing about 50 the tach goes to 2500 then gear changes and when
it hit 2000rpm and I hold it there the motor starts jerking like it needs an
even flow of gas,but if I push the medal down more to bring the rpms up
to 2500 it seem to go away,now if I let up on the pedal and keep the rpms
at 2000 it starts to jerk again.I did check the plugs and they seem fine.
thanks.

Has this just started? or has your driving style changed?

perhaps try driving to 3000RPM before changing gear and see if the ride is any smoother?

if this is it I'd say that either the air or fuel line is dirty and the reason for the jerking is that the engine isn't really producing enough power.

it's automatic...

have you checked the gear oil levels? (transmission fluid)

when it's low autos have a tendancy to mess up a little... when it gets so low it's empty it just won't work at all anymore!
