Either the float no longer floats or the float valve is stuck open. The easy fix is to replace the carb with a rebuilt one.

SOURCE: Why won't my 1992 Ford Econoline van start

I suspect the fuel pump has stopped working, check the fuel pressure or listen to the noise it makes by taking off the gas cap and listening for a humming noise when the key is turned on, this will stop after a few seconds.

SOURCE: 1995 ford econoline van speedo/trans

It is either the speed sensor, the wireing in between ot the speedometer module it self. The sensor sends pulse train signal to the speedometer module and there it drives the speedometer and is divided in frequency by about 7 and feed to the computer and the cruise control. When the signal drops the Engine management computer thinks the speed is real slow and raises the transmission pressure.

In the one I had it was a cold solder jooint on the bacjk of the speedometer module itself but this was the divided output and the speedometer itself still worked. The easyest part would be the sensor that mounts on the rear axile I believe and should cost less than 30.00 dollars. If not that thebn it's the wiring or the speedometer module electronics..

The fuel shut off valve is not getting the correct amount of vacuum OR the fuel shutoff valve is failing.

You will need 1/2 to go over EVERY SINGLE vacuum line and check for leak.

Even it's look OK. Give it a little push to ensure 100% seal connection.


If this does not help then the vacuum switch next to the steering lock (behind dash) may be leaking or failing.

The switch is about $36 from the Mercedes dealer.


Good luck

SOURCE: fuel pump location 1988 ford econoline

Theres 2 pumps one in the tank, lift pump, and one in the chassis rail under the driver side. The one in the tank is cheap, the one in the rail is not. The one in the tank only produces low pressure to prime the main pump and if it is broken, may not cause that much of an issue except when starting. the one in the rail is a no-start if it fails. The idea is that the rail pump can supply high pressure for the injectors, so a fuel pressure test at the injector rail will determine which pump is playing up. Hope that helps Tim
