Question about 2002 Ford E350

1993 Ford E-350 Fuel issue

When I start my Ford E-350 with the 5.8 liter engine, it runs smooth at high idle, and kicks itself down to low idle as it should, then after 30 seconds or so it floods itself out and stalls. I pulled the vac. line of the fuel pressure regulator, and it still did the same thing. Any Ideas??

This can be a common problem among engines with some miles like 50k to 95k range. There is an idler unit that is opens and closes during starting. They get clogged with carbon and stick. I am going to suggest you to look in this area.
You have many other ways to go but it is in the full body throttle area more than likely.
With a 2002 you might be able to get a book and find it. It is usually stuck in the side of the throttle body (carburetor) This is an educated guess but it is worth looking at.

My welder will run and weld fine at high idle speed but shuts of when the low idle kicks in. Checked fuel system to see if it was a fuel issue, no problems there. Any ideas?


If you're trying to weld at low idle it may be that the load on the engine stalls it before it can automatically go back to high idle.
You may need to "trick it" back to high idle before you begin welding.

1993 ford ranger won't Idle right


I am a Ford dealer Tech and this is what cures this issue most of the time.

, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Checked Fuel Pressure Regulator on 93 Ford Tempo GL 2.3 Liter.


As far as I know without checking it personally it sounds like it could be one of three things (in order from easiest to hardest). Clogged air filter, worn timing chain, leaking head gasket. To check for the third go to Auto Zone and get them to do a compression check, its free. I can't remember off hand but if the 93 has a TPS (throttle position sensor) that could also cause an irratic idle.
