Question about 1992 Ford Econoline

1 Answer

Dead 92' Ford Econoline

I have a 92' Club Wagon with the 5.8 liter motor.
For a year I had trouble with it cutting out on me after the engine warmed up. Now it will only run for a few minutes before it dies completely.
I have also noticed using a spark light, that while it is running, if I mash the throttle, the spark quits completely for a second, then comes back...until the engine warms up of course, at which point the engine dies.
I replaced the Plugs, Cap and Rotor, and the Fuel Filter with new parts ( the wires are recent).
I also have a donor van that ran well except for the loud knock in the motor. I have swapped out the following without success, not necessarily in this order. PCM, ICM, distributor, Fuel pump, MAP sensor, oxygen sensor, throttle position sensor, some EGR parts and even the transmission range selector.
Any ideas would be more than welcome.

    If the module was not mounted on the distributor try replacing it. usually a hot problem can be traced to a pickup coil (in dist) or crank sensor or module problem. These coils can go open when they get hot and fail, cooling them off again and they work fine for a short time. The Ignition module has been a longtime problem with fords and seam to fail more often than the others altho they ware getting better.

Hello Kurt Klasen,

I'm seeing "CLUB WAGON" under ECONOLINE.

Notwithstanding FREE schematics for MOST USA market vehicles at BBB Industries TECHNICAL BULLETINS site...
(are well worth the required registration)
((no memberships... no hassles))...

1996 ECONOLINE is there...!

I always recommend getting the FACTORY REPAIR MANUALS

Lost the manual, and need to find the fuse for the horn


For some strange reason Ford only supports the Econoline owner's manual back to 1996. If you think that the 1996 manual will help you, click on this link Ford Econoline/Club Wagon Owner's Manual

Sorry that I couldn't do better but perhaps some other guru will be of assistance.

All the best

Unfortunately Ford doesn't supply a download for guides older than 1996.
If the changes were minor (they often are), the '96 version should help:
