Question about Ford E-Series Van

1 Answer

Hard starting engine ford engine 5.8

Some days my van starts very easy and other mourning's I turn it over and doesn't fire up for awhile. I coughs and sputters for awhile before it finally starts. It runs fine after it starts. I live on the coast so it basically is the same tempature every mourning. Do you have any suggestions on what it might be, and how it can be fixed?

Ignition components. Replace plugs, wires, rotor, cap, and possibly coil. Could also be fuel pump, as they can sometimes come and go.

SOURCE: 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls when brakes are applied

My 2000 Grand Cherokee had the same problem, without all the sputtering, it would just die approaching a stop. We could only keep it running by slightly pushing down on the gas petal when coming to a stop. I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor, but that didn't change anything. A new mechanic I found replaced the Idle Air Control Valve, and we've had no problems in a week.

SOURCE: 2001 Chevy 2500HD 6.0L, Hard starting.

Check the fuel pressure, bad fuel pump or sock on the fuel pump and fuel filter check spark plugs and check distributor cap, a fuel pump is $273.00 or a bad injector $110.99 or BWD Fuel Vapor Pressure Sensor for $35.99 any of these parts could cause the problem, so without doing a fuel pressure test it is a guess, if the vapor switch is bad it could cause a long crank time if the fuel pump is bad it has a check valve in the fuel pump, if the check valve goes bad the pump can't maintain fuel pressure so on start up the fuel has to pump from the tank all the way up to the fuel rail, if the injectors is bad it could leak after engine shut down and cause you to lose fuel rail pressure. Also the fuel vapor sensor could be stuck open and could cause the problem, all need to be tested, you can rent the fuel pressure tester from AutoZone or advance auto or Shucks they return your money when you bring the tool back as long as you buy the parts to repair it from them. That would be the first thing I would check fuel pump pressure and if you replace the pump then change the fuel sock as well. That model was not meant to burn ethanol and can kill the fuel sock the fuel pump and filter.

Get a tune up and especially have your injectors cleaned. Most FI vehicles have a cold start injector which if they are dirty could cause poor starting conditions when the vehicle is still cold

It seems like you have a vacuum leak in a hose some where. Check under the hood for any rubber hoses that are dry-rotted, cracks, or sharp bends in any of them.

Turns over but will not fire, no coughing, has fuel, intermittent problem


Sounds like a fuel delivery problem. Could be the fuel pump relay or the fuel pump itself. Owner's manual may show where the relay is located and most parts stores have them. The folks that work there will usually assist with the replacement.

I have a 1989 ford econoline van that will start. The engine will turn over but will not start. Please solve.


Let's start with the simple things - are you getting spark?
To check - you will need a friend to try to start the van - and you will
1- pull an EASY plug wire to get to - doesn't matter much which one.
Try holding the wire about 1/4 inch away from the cap while your friend trys to start the van. Do this in a NON well lit area - shadows will help tell your eye if it is sparking or not. In BRIGHT light you will not always see the spark if you're not trained.
Get back to me with if it sparks or not.

Car won't start not the battery


Test the neutral safety switch but doing the following steps.

1)foot on brake
2)turn key to on position
3)shift lever to neutral (N)
4)start the engine
5)shift the lever to Park (P)

If the engine can start at N and not at park then it's the neutral safety switch.

Hard to start any time of the day for 1994 Nissan Quest XE.


turn your key on, DO NOT TOUCH THE GAS PEDAL and start, good luck. Pumping the pedal doesn't do a thing for fuel injection. In thre days of carburetors and you had control of your own property, Pumping did a couple of things. It set the choke and added more fuel. But that was yesterday and yesterday's gone.

92 aerostar hard start


Hi, without testing the car, and knowing miealge on car, ill guess coil is faulty or you can go to any large parts store the new franchise type. They will come out and put a tester on usually free and just might save you a lot of money, before a mechanic tells you to rebuild the motor for 3,000. Good luck to you! Frankie!
