There is like a burning smell from the passenger side inside the hood, vehicle hesitates and stutters, check engine light started flashing. Any ideas of the cause? Nearest dealership is 2 hours away from me.
Go to library and get an automechanic's Diagnostic and Repair book or manual. Simply check out the possibility whether the negative response that you are getting from your car matches the mechanical data found in the repair book and manual.
AND NEVER forget to consult an attorney for FREE advice concerning laws governing the legal responsibilities of auto mechanics (there are attorneys who do NOT charge a fee for the first 30 minutes of advice) Check yellow pages. GOOD LUCK!

Check your fuses first under the hood and under the dash. Better hope they blew before you did major damage. If you find the ones that blew check what they ran and start checking out your electrical system in that area.Hope whatever started burning was just hot wires and not a ruined electrical system. If there is extra stereos wires or security systems installed (not factory) check that area and if possible disconnect them that may take care of the problem
A P0300 diagnostic code indicates a random or multiple misfire. If the last digit is a number other than zero, it corresponds to the cylinder number that is misfiring. A P0302 code, for example, would tell you cylinder number two is misfiring. Unfortunately, a P0300 doesn't tell you specifically which cylinder(s) is/are mis-firing, nor why.
Symptoms may include the engine may be harder to start, the engine may stumble / stumble, and/or hesitate, other symptoms may also be present.
A code P0300 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: Faulty spark plugs or wires Faulty coil (pack) Faulty oxygen sensor(s) Faulty fuel injector(s) Burned exhaust valve Faulty catalytic converter(s) Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages Faulty camshaft position sensor Defective computer

Take van to reputable Ford dealer and have them hook it up to computer and check for any codes.
The vehicle computer might have to be reset for the egr system.What they did was disconnect your battery for the quicki reset for vehicle, thats why your radio had reset.
ddlucia: there is one fuse box located in the engine compartment.
it is a large black box. it will contain the headlight fuses.
The other fuse block is inside the passengers compartment.on the drivers side. some of the cars had the cruise control fuses in this panel others were in the engine compartment.
