Question about Ford E-150
I have a 1984 e150 econoline conversion van. it wont start when it's really cold. a friend told me i need a block heater. will i have to replace my engine to get one? where do i get one? how is this done? (sorry i'm a female & i'm really confused and not sure what i'm doing or looking for)
There are after market water heater systems, that fit in the cooling system, generally in a radiator hose and plug into a domestic power supply and pre heat the cooling system. They are use in Scandinavia, looks like an internet search?

SOURCE: need to replace the heater core
Under the dash for sure, but you may need to drop the whole box and may be mounted with bolts from the engine compartment. You will need to disconnect the hoses from the core from under the hood

This a repair for a transmission shop. Sounds like the pumps are bad inside the transmission. Thats the worst option I have.
It also can be a poor shift linkage adjustment. And the last solution can be the speed module that tell the transmission when to shift.
Goodluck! I hope this helps!

SOURCE: heater core leaks
yup you will have to remove the whole dash, unhook batteries and wait 20 min, for air bags, unhook all wires ect from steering colum and remove the colum as an assy, behind the kick panels both sides you should see some bolts holding the dash to the kick panel (some will have a sloted holes so you dont have to remove the bolts just loosen them (this allows you to tilt the dash back away from the winshield) unhook all nessesary wiring, heater controls, stereo wires ect.. remove screw's securing the upper dash to firewall, tilt dash back and check for any other wiring ect.. remove intire dash! now you will need to remove the intire heater box to gain access to the heater core, you can pinch off the heater hose's so you wont have to drain the intire cooling system, some of the vans used a quick disconect right at the firewall and require a special release tool to release them almost impossible without the tool, once this is done you have to evacuate the ac system and unhook the lines, then you can remove the heater box( nuts on the firewall engine side) and dissasemble to gain access the the heatercore! (not for the faint at heart) some models can take as long as 16 hrs to r&r so if your asking about doing one means your not going to have fun! I recomend taking it to the shop and have it done by pro's, or at least spend the money and buy a repair manual
make shure you do it in a heated shop cuase if you fight it in the cold your apt to break some plastic! take your time and dont get frustrated, it will pay off, and always vacum test the new core before installing it to make dang shure it doesent leak before you install it! reasemble in the reverse order, this is just off the top of my head but gives you a general idea what your up against! have fun!

sounds like your starter gear may be hitting the flexiplate but that should not effect the trans.
There may be a safety lock on your gearshift under the console that is faulty, it should disengage when the ignition key is turned on, my brother in law had this problem with his new car, I removed it all together as it was more trouble than it was worth
