Question about 2004 Ford E150
1996 e-150. runs and idles fine but doesn't seem to have much pickup. at about 60mph it starts to choke out. transmission seems to shift fine. also, if you push down on the gas hard, the engine will rev some but no get up and go. van does have 183,000 miles
Check the idle air control valve (IAC). It is located on the fuel system side near the aircleaner . If you look inside the hole on the fuel system you can see the holes from the IAC. Cleaning out this valve can sometimes clear the problem. Clean it using carb cleaner and with the engine running spray directly aiming at the holes on the side. Let the cleaner soak in by turning off the engine. It can also be removed and cleaned. Spary a good 10 seconds and let soak , then repeat the procedure with the engine running. If that is not the problem or the engine does not improve at all . It may be the Crankshaft Position Sensor. your best bet would be to take the car to Autozone or other store for a free trouble code. But try to clean the IAC first.
