Stalls when put into gear


many things can cause this. the most common problem would be that the timing is slightly off. (fixed sometimes by adjusting the distributor) it could also be a bad fuel pump (or clogged fuel filter) this would allow enough fuel to run the engine in park but not enough to run the engine under stress. clogged air filter could also cause this (not allowing enough air into the cylinders). I would change the air filter and fuel filter. then crank the vehicle and slowly turn the distributor (finding the best idle position) then see what happens. lastly replace the fuel pump.

When the outside temperature has been above 90 degrees, and with the air running, my 1995 econoline 150 conversion van, 5.0 engine, has stalled out. on the first instance, i put the van in neutral and...


I chased a similar problem for several years. Stalled, got towed no problem found. The thing would heal and then fail at random on hot days. After checking everything electrical, fuel pump pressure etc, nothing could be found and I could not duplicate the problem. One day after being towed to a shop again, van started and would not fail but this time I had the mechanic put a clear by pass line along with a pressure gauge and I monitored the flow for about forty five minutes. Suddenly I started to see a stream of air bubbles and the pressure began to drop until the engine shut off. It was the FUEL PUMP all along and no one was able to determine that w/ all the test equipment. Went to Kragen Auto, now Oriely's and got a fuel pump. Had the shop drop the tank and install it. Have never had a problem again. Don't worry about what the mechanics tell you that it is not. Change the fuel pump

HARD TO START IN THE MORNING AFTER THAT STARTS GOOD RUNS GOOD 1984 FORD ECONOLINE VAN V8 NOT GETTING FUEL IF YOU PRINES CARB FIRES UP QUICKLY


with a vehicle this old one or more of the rubber fuel hoses may have cracks in it causing air to be pulled in and losing its prime to the carburetor. also the pump may be worn out inside causing this problem. the carburetor has a accelerator pump on it that may be worn and this is why you have to prime it to get it going. have you done a fuel filter in a while? hope this gets you started

Van starts in park, but when put in any gear van stalls out.


before doing anything I would disconnect the battery, leave it a few minutes then refit and restart, try it then. does the engine STOP, as if you turned the ignition off? or dies it struggle and die?
