YOU MAY GET A PEDAL POSITION SENSOR CODE AND A THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR INPUT CODE. IF YOU GET THESE CODES, THEN CHANGE THE THROTTLE BODY/THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR. SINCE YOUR THROTTLE POSITON SENSOR IS PART OF THE BODY, YOU MUST CHANGE THE THROTTLE BODY BECAUSE THE T.P.S. IS RIVETED TO IT AND CANNOT BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY. IT IS A DEALER PART ONLY. P.S. BE CAREFUL IF YOU CHANGE THIS PART YOURSELF DUE TO THE FACT THAT COOLANT RUNS THROUGH THE BODY TO HELP DISSIPATE HEAT. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANK YOU FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA.

Engine losses power


Check your fuel pressure to make sure the fuel pump is putting out the pressure that the manufacturer requires for the motor. Auto Zone rents out the tool required to check this. Always check pressure on either side of the fuel filter as the filter may be causing a drop in pressure.

My Econoline 250 with 4.2 lost fluid from hose leak, fixed leak everything was normal for 3 days till I drove it on highway. When it went into overdrive lost forward power.

This may mean a number of things, it could be a bad distributor cap, rotor and wires, or the intake valve or valves are burnt. Buy a compression tester and test the cylinder compression they all should be no les than 100 psi or the the engine needs a valve job, especially if one is down to 50 psi and the rest are at 130 - 150 psi.
