Question about Ford Econoline
It seems when I start to give it gas it shut down if I keep running easy it seems to run ok
This might be a worn throttle position sensor because if it runs at idle and then when you increase with gas peddle there could be a worn spot in the sensors contact also if this is a drive by wire throttle body(throttle motor with a plug on it and no lever for manual throttle increase this also could be bad you must have a check engine light on if not when you first turn the key for power///NOT CRANKING ///check to see if all dash warning lights come on in the self test of the system the bulb could be burned out for the check engine light if so go to auto zone or advance auto and they will scan your system for trouble codes to give you a better idea post back with results and progress and we will go further if needed you did not specify what E van 150-450 and motor size 4.6--5.4gas------6.0 diesel so I'm assuming that it's gas please be specific if you post back all of us here need this info for trying to help you remember your there in front of the vehicle we are not here is a couple of pics for you this is the throttle body motor and you would get a check engine light and a wrench sign on the dash warning lights
this is the throttle position sensor below check engine light will be on
there is also the possibility of really warn spark plugs that are way out of gap and the engine can only run under light rpm load and when rpms increase the spark plug electrode gap is to far out and the heat from the plug firing inside the head is making expand even more and thus no spark plugs firing and no rpm increase and engine dies look at the plugs first and check the gap then go further as described above good luck Stephei have a 2005 ford e-coline van when running and g - 26381095-lw30xb3gqn3gwqtvkpmbzy1k-1-5.jpgt/uploads/images/26381095-lw30xb3gqn3gwqtvkpmbzy1k-1-5.jpg" alt="26381095-lw30xb3gqn3gwqtvkpmbzy1k-1-5.jpg" class="h_mi" />
