SOURCE: Can the Head Gaskets be replaced on a 2001

Yes , but it is very time consuming and if you have never replaced head gaskets before then I would not suggest that this vehicle be your first.

for the 2.2L OHV:
(pully 8 4 1 5 9 <-- long bolts @ 63Nm (46ft/lb)
side ) 7 3 2 6 10 <-- short bolts / 10 is the stud @ 58Nm (43ft/lb)

for the 2.4l dohc are as follows:
(pully 9 3 1 5 7
side) 10 6 2 4 8
bolts 1-8 torqued to 65Nm (40ft/lb)
bolts 9-10 torqued to 40Nm (30ft/lb)

then (either engine) give each an additional 90° (¼) turn

it's best to do the tightening in stages, you don't want to go completely tight on the first pass or there will problems and you'll get to do it all over again

missing check the spark plugs is the first thing to look at. check the color of them, if any of them are wet or if one is not the same color as the rest. check these first.

I have a 1993 ford Econovan maxi . I have ignition point . What is the gap on the ignition point . Thanks

point gap is .40 to .50 mm ( point 4 to point 5 mm) or .015 to .20"
most point distributors are at the .02 " mark but check and adjust as points to wide will misfire under load or lack power if too close
point gap variations can change ignition timing

FORD ECONOVAN MAXi 2.0 Hi, i have a serious creaking and groaning noise from the front nearside when I hit a bump or speed hump could I need a new shock absorber? I dont get the bump I would expect

It could be your shock/strut for sure. It could also be other suspension parts like the control arm or ball joints but I would suspect shocks first. If you arent extremely proficient, I would leave this repair to the pros. It isnt hard but it is incredibly dangerous. To get the old shock off you need to compress the spring with a special tool, and once it is compressed, it is like a bomb waiting to go off and could easily kill you. Take it to a shop and have them confirm the problem then do the repair. It should be around 150 for the part ( or less!) and another 100 for the labor.
