Question about 2002 Ford E250
When I accellerate, the engine hesitates, but idles fine.
replaced fuel filter, air filter,had injectors cleaned.
I attempted to replace spark plugs but had discovered FORD actually created a vehicle that is almost impossible to work on.
because of the air pollution,fuel rails and god knows what else is between me and the coil packs!
not to mention the fact the motor is neatly tucked so far inside the van , you cannot access any of the before mentiond parts without pulling the engine!
WAY TO GO FORD
shoulda bought a chevy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sounds like you could have a bad coil or boots. When I do tuneups on fords I always use motorcraft plugs, and replace the boots that hook to the coils, also buy some dielectric grease to put small dab inside the boot where it slides on the plug. You will probably also need 8mm socket, 7mm socket, and a wobble spark plug socket, or swivel to reach some of them. I usually try to blow air around the intake to clean any dirt off. Then I do 1 plug at a time, and while the plug is out i crank it over or start it a second to blow anymore debris out. Fords are bad about getting misfires on back cylinders. If you take it to a shop beware book time is about 3.5 hours. Could be worse I just got through last week tearing apart a 6.0 powerstroke in 2006 E350 (No access there)
