Question about 1999 Ford Econoline

1999 Ford E250 Van will not start

Recently bought a used 1999 Ford Econoline Van. I drove it home from the dealership, and it was in excellent working condition. I was in the process of changing over my shelving and getting her road ready. The van passed inspection, with only a few minor repairs needed. Anyway, I went to start her up last weekend and she rolls over, but is dumping massive amounts of gas into the engine. I have been to Ford, ford mechanics, as well as local mechanics. I was originally told the problem was the cold temperature sensor. I bought a new one, but I have no idea where it goes. Ford has given me diagram, but it's simply not where the picture shows it to be. Again this is a 1999 Ford E250 with a 4.2 engine. I'm at my wits end trying to repair this, and I desperately need help. Anything you can tell me will be much appreciated. Thank you for your time.

    How do you know it is dumping fuel? never heard of a cold temp sensor, unless they mean engine coolant temp sensor, but that shouldn't cause it to flood. any more details would help

I've never heard of a cold temp sensor... theres an intake air temp sensor it goes in the large plastic tube that comes off your air filter box, i doubt this is your problem tho.. i would lean more toward the fuel pressure regulator or one of the injectors could be dumping. also a clogged catylitic converter may cause an overfueling situation. hope this helps and good luck

1996 Ford Econoline charging problem


Is this E-150 econoline?
Engine running, take reading at generator bat terminal, what is it? The basics, take reading across battery terminals, everything off. Take second reading at bat terminals, engine running. The second reading should be higher than the first if charging system is working. Was the charging system checked on the vehicle when the generator was checked out?
There could be a wiring circuit problem? The bat terminal at generator is hot all the time, engine running or off.

2002 ford e250 5.4. engine temp gauge giving false reading. drove 10 min. went to store came back 5 min. started van and temp. gauge pegged at highest level. realized engine was fine drove home, 2 blocks...


Well, it can be a sending unit issue, they are pretty inexpensive, so worth while to just replace it. Do be aware that the temprature DOES normally do what you describe. The condition is called heat soak, where the temp goes pretty high, due to no water circulation, after shutdown. This is normal and some vehicles run fans after shutdown to help. Usually not an issue with properly functioning cooling system that can hold pressure.

Remember the coolant recovery tanks? Their purpose was to recover teh small amount of coolant pushed out during heat soak.
