Question about 1999 Ford Econoline
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.
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
