Question about 2002 Ford E350

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Ford E 350 passenger van that uses regular gas. I drive it daily but every couple of months I try to start it and it turns over but won't start. If I leave it alone for about 2 hours and come back it starts fine for another couple of months. I have brought it to the mechanic but they cannot reproduce the problem and have told me it could be alot of things and they don't want to fix something that aint broke. Anybody know anything?

SOURCE: Ford E-250 Handicap van will not turnover

Electrical problems are always the hardest to troubleshoot, that's why your shop could not find anything, they had not searched long enough, or looking in the wrong place. The shop may have checked the starter,solenoid,battery,relay( if equipped with), and then they gave up. It may be the ignition switch,or ignition safety switch( if equipped with ) there is almost always a way to bypass electrical equiptment to check if it is the problem. These test should be performed in the proper manner. You may need a new shop, to handle your electrical problems.

SOURCE: My 2001 Ford Windstar van seems to be using alot of coolant daily

Possible coolant leak on hot engine parts causing it to evaporate as it leaks. That would definitely invade the cabin air. You would need to carefully check under the hood with the engine warmed up and running.

Also could be a headgasket failure between coolant channels and a combustion chamber. This latter problem sometimes shows itself as vapor at the tailpipe after there should be no more visible. You may also detect the odor of coolant there too.

Check your fuel vapor recovery system, your van has unusual set up, and the effect is RAW fuel gets purged, rather than vapor.
The dead giveaway test is does the issue happen on light acceleration? Does it stop if you let off the throttle? Can you accelerate harder and "get past" the issue?

Sounds like an electrical issue with the computer or sensors. Most
newer cars, even the owners manuals don't recommend anything but regular gas.Good luck.

Where is the radiator cap located on the 2001 focus?


A 2001 Ford Focus does not have an outlet on the radiator for a cap. It has a de-gas type cooling system and what would traditionally be called a "radiator cap" has become the de-gas bottle cap. It is located on the de-gas bottle just in front of the passenger strut tower and behind the passenger headlamp assembly. Do not open this cap when the engine is hot as you may be burned by the coolant.

Start with the simple and check the fuse to the ECM. It may have blown and the crank shaft sensor wire harness which is located on the passenger side of the harmonic balance. The other thing also would be a problem with the passlock system if the van is equipped with one. Try turning the ignition key to the on position for 10 min then try starting the engine. Good luck and hope this helps.

2001 mercury cougar want start


Try pulling your inline fuel filter, just in front of the passenger rear tire area. Turn on the key to power and see if any gas is getting through. If not contact the Ford dealer in your area to get it serviced for the Fuel Delivery Module Recall. It clogs and will suddenly make the car not start, mine just did this a couple months ago.
