Question about Ford Aerostar
When I first start the van, something creaks like a loose belt, but belts are good. I back out of driveway, and when I push the gas it will pick up a little, and then sputter bad and backfire. I flushed the radiator, and it ran fine for 2 days, same problem this morning, and then straighned right out. water level is good but now theres more rust in the water. van is rusted bad all over. Could the rust be clogging the insides of the motor so bad that the water pump is messing up or going out...or what? PLEASE HELP!!! lol

First check all wires for any thing loose.
The muffler blowing up leads me to think the engine is so far out of time the PCM cant correct it.
REally you need to get it to a good mechanic.

if poor performance was noticed right off the bat, the timing belt is not timed properly. this will cause lack of power, rough idle, pre ignition(little noisey), and rich exhaust.youre going to need to first, find a friend or someone whom you trust to do your automotive work.second youre going to need to start over by tearing it all down systematically and taking note of anything done wrong. third find reliable information on the timing marks for this vehicle. i hope for your sake nothing is broken. let me know how this turns out, ill be happy to help further if you need.
