SOURCE: my 2004 ford freestar van is hesitating going down

most likely not the fuel filter- try plugs and wires... could be a number of things, if the vehicle runs fine while in park and doesnt hesitate, most likely is sprk plugs and wires or a transmission problem...

SOURCE: 2003 ford van e350 rear air vent is not blowing

Try this article. I have the same problem and I think it is the vacuum motor that controls the door for changing from hot/cold in the rear heater box (located inside behind the L rear wheel)

SOURCE: i have a 98 ford windstar 3.8 with a engine miss

I replaced the coil pack on my friends wind star when they had a mis. If you take the sparkplug wires loose and just set them on the plugs loose it will be easy to remove them with the engine running. Useing plastic plyers or some kind of insulated grabers, one by one take the wire away from the plug/or coil and see if it makes a difference.Take it away then put it back then go to the next one.If it runs the same when the wire is off then you probably will not hear a spark at that wire. The coils do go bad on alot of newer cars.
I hope this info helps you.

98 cantour svt code 401

It basically indicates a problem with the EGR valve or the DPFE sensor. Usually, this is caused by blocked passages in the EGR system, not with the EGR valve or DPFE sensor themselves. To clean them, you will have to remove the throttle body.

1999 ford econoline van both rear doors are locked and cannot open from inside or out?

I have a 1999 Ford e150 van and the van runs good on the highway and rough on the city street. tries to stall at red lights and stop signs. I took it to a garage and the computer says it is running lean on both banks.

EGR sensor, just replaced it an hour ago and started to remove the egr valve. I can't figure out how to get out the bottom bolt. and is there anything else holding the egr valve?

The garage said to use carb cleaner and spray it out. they told me to ry this before you buy a new one. It's 11:30 pm and I wish i would have just got a new one. I don't want to go through this again.

Help me get this off and if possible direct me to some photos,

I have a '98 Astro van that starts fine when cold but is hard to start win hot. It idle and runs fine. After it cools down completely, it will start OK. I was told it could be a fuel pressure problem and...

I agree, replace the Coolant temp sensor, it will have 2 wires going to it, Not 1. Usually located just behind the breather near the thermostat outlet.

This sensor controlles your timing and fuel to air ratio.

Start up 1996 ford windstar ,runs great,get the van up to operating temp,shut off van and try to restart 15 mins later its very hard to start.....if you leave it and come back when it's cold it will start...

Not your camshaft sensor, it would not even start. Your going to have to get it scaned, but I'm thinking it may be your EGR system.

If you are comfortable performing some basic checks prior to resorting to the Ford Dealer then try pulling a vacuum on the EGR valve to make sure the pintle moves freely in both directions. While you're at it, make sure all vacuum hoses and system components hold a vacuum. Inspect the EGR valve visually for coking and contamination. Check EGR solenoids and the position sensor for electrical continuity.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Check engine light won't go off to pass inspection

No Biggy.. Get them to install a DPFE sensor,, ( its the one that regulates the EGR valve ) Most ppl mistake a 1409 Code as Being EGR and it is kinda.. but when the valve maint fails.. its almost always the DPFE sensor.. Try that and lemmie know
