Generally you would need to check the level of freon in the system, and probably the expansion valve in the rear unit. You should have one hot and one cold ac line going to each evaporator.

1995 econoline 150 won't start unless I hold the gas pedal down and then when it is trying to start I have to let off the pedal or it won't start.


Could be injectors are clooged, or fuel pump is going out. I would start with replaceing the fuel pump, its the cheapest. Then if the problem persisst, have the injectors check and cleaned.

1986 ford econoline ignition failure


It could be your catalytic converter which is clogged, when the car is cold.. you are getting enough exhaust escaping allowing the car to run, but it will be very restrictive, once this is hot is so restricted that it will not allow the car to restart.
This can be a serious condition and if parked over dry grass or trash could actually start a fire. Take you vehicle to a respectable exhaust specialist.

Heat in a Econoline 150 just stopped. Blows out cold air. Dont have fuse diagram where do I find one


I'm not sure your problem is a blown fuse. If the blower motor is running and pushing out air, then it's working normally. First check would be the thermostat, let the engine warm up and feel the radiator hoses. If 1 hose gets hot and the other is cold, most likely you have a bad thermostat. If thats ok, make sure you dont have any vacuum leaks, as most of the blend air doors that allow heat into the van are vacuum operated. It doesnt take much of a vacuum leak to lose your heat. Finally, make sure the control cables behind the head unit are in place and not kinked or broken.

This will sound odd, but if the fuel filter hasn't been changed in a long time replace it and check that air filter isn't clogged up. If this isn't causing it you can try changing the fluid if it's been neglected and add TransX.

Are plugs and wires good? Did you check distributor? Firing order correct-timing set right? Maybe some of the new parts are faulty? Are grounds all secure and are fuses good?
