It is your water pump... If it hasn't been changed you have probably blown the fins and it is done... stop driving and replace immediately... very cheap to buy the part... it is located under the thermostat... you should probably flush that system with the water pipe off on the return side with a garden house to be sure all the chunks are you.. then refill with good antifreeze or coolest THE TYPE RECOMMEND FOR YOUR CAR... as not all rubber pipes play nice with the wrong coolant... also make sure your thermostat is the right way around.... put in backwards and it will actually work to over heat the car... summer time you don't even need to have one in.

From my experience it's usually the fuses, check all of them. It's easy to tell which one it is because they often look burnt / blackened on the top. If you're not sure, shine a flashlight through it, the small metal wire inside should look like a horseshoe shaped arch. When they burn out, the arc is usually melted or broken - or there is a gap preventing the electrical connection. If a fuse is not the problem, the next thing I'd check is the switch itself. Remove the unit ( or the wires going to it ) and make sure that all the wires are connected, and that there's no corrosion on the wire clasp. If they're a little loose just crimp them with pliers. (When the wires to the switch are exposed, you can bridge them with a small piece of wire, the lights should come on when you do - that way you can tell for sure if it is the switch) The only other thing I can think of is the ground wire, without it the circuit can't bridge. So if all else fails, find the ground and make sure it's connected firmly, and that there's no dirt, oil or rust preventing the current from grounding. Hope I helped, Grim

Most likely to be the switch, as a rule, when the motor goes out, it doesn't come back. Hope this helps if you have not figured it out by now. Good Luck!

The spark should come from the coil tower when you remove the ground side of the circuit.

Bad coil, ignition module, crank or cam sensor.

My Econoline 250 with 4.2 lost fluid from hose leak, fixed leak everything was normal for 3 days till I drove it on highway. When it went into overdrive lost forward power. Turned off OD and did ok for a while. Lost forward gears slowly, put in fluid, hard to tell when full. Reverse is fine but have to rev up engine to get forward to engage, then everything is fine at lights and such till take out of drive, then have to rev engine to about 2500rpm to engage drive. Help?

My advise would be to take it to a dealership and ask them to put it on a computer and print out the problems! It cost me around $60 to do that on my f250. Then I replaced the parts myself thru parts stores and ebay!! Alot cheaper in the long run!

Not sure I understand your question. A 7.5 ltr Ford would be a V8.
There should be a starter solenoid on the fender that powers the starter. Are you trying to put a switch on the dash for that solenoid?

1990 Ford F250 | Answered on Jun 14, 2015

Should be below the steering wheel close mounted just under knee board

Clean the throttle body and idle air control motor(IAC) on the side of it. Mostly the IAC and the hole it sets in. Also check the air filter.
