I will assume the one that is smoking is the front brakes. sounds like while the van was sitting the brake caliper has locked up and will need to be replaced

Brakes wont work pedal goes to floor changed the master cyclinder bleed brakes and still have same problem 1990 ford aerostar van


What is the condition of both front calipers? both rear wheel cylinders? and the complete brake lines and hoses of your van? If they are all good with no traces of leakage, then did you bleed the Mastercylinder on the bench first before installing in the van? Did you gravity bleed the 4 wheels first? did you bleed from the farthest wheel first? Are you using a new Master and not a re-built??

How change sparks plug?


Good luck! This is one of the most difficult vehicles to put spark plugs in. The best way I have found, on the drivers side the plugs are angled forward and can be accessed fairly well. The passenger side plugs angle rearward, and are very difficult to get to, but if you jack the van up remove the right front tire, and with the van on a jackstand work from in the fender you can get them changed. The flat rate manual says a professional mechanic should be able to change the plugs in your aerostar in about 4 hours, so for a DIYer that means almost all day. Good Luck.

Sounds like the front calipers are not fully retracting properly. Check the front caliper operation while a friend pumps the brake pedal, the rubber lines could also be cracked and allowing air into the lines. Check brake fluid level.
