    I have a ford E350 econoline XL super duty van. It is a 2001 with a 5.4l engine. The flap in the rear that controls the air flow is not working. The fan comes on but I can't get the air to circulate through the top of the van. The switch works. What is the problem?

Are plugs and wires good? Did you check distributor? Firing order correct-timing set right? Maybe some of the new parts are faulty? Are grounds all secure and are fuses good?

Check the wiring around the distributor i don't know how simular it is to a 1990 ford crown vicktoria 5.0 engine,
but on this car, there is a little two 2 prong plug beside the distributor no wires coming from the plug it's self , it plugs into the wiring harness it works like a fuse.
if you remove it or if it has melted the car WON'T START, no fire the link can be removed to keep the car from starting for testing purposes (fule pressure ect.)
when you wouldn't want the car to start

Yes, a coil is a possible cause, and so is a relay or other electrical component.

1984 dodge van has power to the coil but not from the distributer, and it doesnt start. van ran fine until the positive post came off while driving down the road, it just died and hasnt fired back up...

Does the coil produce voltage? I know it has power to it, but is it throwing voltage? if so check the coil wire at the distributor. if power is reaching the distributor but not throwing spark from any plug wires, your problem is a bad rotor and or cap. Or bad wires.

I have a 1994 Ford E-150 Conversion Van. It has a

57k miles on a '94, nice...
The transmission should be able to handle a 500lb load and a 500lb tow, you really shouldnt hardly even notice the weight unless you going up some steep grades.
as far as what to look at before going on a long trip, diffenetly get a oil change if you havent in 1500'ish miles (or get one on the road when you get closer to the recommended mileage of 3k miles, which you should hit easy enough on a 11 hour drive to your destination) Perhaps plugs and wires if you havent had at least 1 tune up since driving off the lot. all your fluids, bulbs, fuses(bring extra fuses with you), at least 1 spare tire, tire pressure(35-42psi), and anything else that is general maintance that needs to be done also.
Other then that, you should be fine... Just dont forget to check the gas gauge once in awhile, and she shouldnt die on the way :P
