Question about 1993 Ford Aerostar Extended

1 Answer

Backfires after starting

After starting my van, I back out of my drive way and when I push the gas, it barely idles up, and then spits and sputters and then backfires a little. I checked the water and it was low so I flushed the radiator and removed a lot of rust(van is rusted badly everywhere)filled with water/antifreeze 5050. Drove great for 2 days, then this morning done the same thing, and after running a few times straightned up. After getting home, I checked the water again, and the level is fine, but bad rusty looking again. Could this rust be the problem? possibly making the water pump clog or go out? And would flushing again fix...THANK YOU

SOURCE: Ford 460 loses power then dies. Starts back up. Idles fine.

It sounds like you might have a clogged catalatic converter on the exhaust system.

Backfiring is not going to have anything to do with the level of fuel in the tank. You most likely have burned valves or broken valve springs in your engine. I would do a compression test.

Use a gas treatment with a full tank of premium gas and see if it clean out your fuel system. It could also be your MAF sensor. There are ways to clean them but you have to be careful not to damage it.

Van Sputters And Loses All Power When I Accelerate


Internal combustion engines requires 3 things... fuel, air, and spark. You do not have enough of one or more of these. If the wires and plugs are old, change them.  Air filter, same thing.  Fuel filter can also clog up with stuff after awhile. When you take a look at the air filter check where the air comes from.  It is possible a little critter has built a home and blocked the air flow (rare, but, it has happened).
