SOURCE: 1989 ford f150 w/ 5.0 liter..... engine light on

I would check the oil pressure of the engine. The reason is the timing chain tensioners are run with oil pressrue. I think your timing chain tensioners are leaking down when engine is getting to operating tempature . The oil is thinning down as warms up , as it should to lubercate . I would check compression and do a cylinder leak down test on all the cylinders. Then if the compression is good and the cylinder leak down is good. I would change all the timing components, ( chain, timing gears, timing chain tensioners )

Good Luck , I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1993 Ford Ranger 3.0L V6 starts surging @ 33-34

Hello:;
This sounds like a fuel problem at the carb. What it's doing is termened hunting a nd can generally be corrected by a simple adjustment of the carb. Engine at idle and neutral set rpms at lowest idle , around 640 rpms. then adjust the a/f ratio screws to balance carb. Screw both screws all the way in, do not force ,or needle and sear damage will occir. Now back each out to 1.5 turns That is your start point Adjust one screw in and out slowly until you you feel its best effact on ide whicjh should slightly increase. repeat with other screw, in and out slowly . listening to the engine idle. if idle has increase due to your adjustmebt, repwat process after lowering the idle speed again with the idle screw. When you get to the point the screws no longer affect the idle the engine show sound and run smoothly at idle, make sure you resert the idle to 650rpms for an automatic trans and 650-750 for manual trans. I hoped this helped- good luck.. If it still does it, the carb may nrrd the float checked and st.

Hello! Although the Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS) has been changed the symptoms are pointing at it...When the new one was installed was it mounted with the throttle valve held shut; Then rotated counterclockwise until the mounting holes lined up? Send a comment...Guru..saailer

When it comes time to change the plugs and wires and distributor cap do the cap and rotor first. Remove the old cap with the wires still attached. Put the new cap and rotor on the distributor and transfer the old wires one at a time. Make sure both caps are lined up in regards to mounting position on the distributor. The cap will only mount one way. When you have this done then you can do the plugs and new wires, again one at a time. This way, when you are done the van should start right up and purr like a kitten. Hope this helps.

Check the compression? You replaced all the items to make it run. remove the air filter and check? If compression is below 90 then bad rings or valves. Check the fuel pressure. to see if you have bad rings with low compresion spray oil in cylinders, if pressure goes up it's the rings. If nto it's the valves.Try these and let me know.
