Question about 2005 Ford Freestar

1 Answer

The van died out on the road - we were able to get it started and brought to a Ford dealer. They can not find anything wrong with it. We are going on a 4500 road trip and are worried about it breaking down.

If you have not replaced the fuel filter in 30,000 miles or one year, then it's a good chance that the filter may need to be replaced. Start with that since it's the most common thing that would cause what you described and there is no way to know if it's a bad filter or not other then knowing the miles on it and time it's been in the van.
Good luck and hope this helps. Be safe in your journey's friend.

What causes ford e350 steering not to return?

I have had similar occurrences , this is a heavy duty van with wide front tires, be sure that the tires are properly inflated, if that doesn't change anything, the dealer is right. This van will not steer the same as a car, because of it's size.

Van died well going down the road.

If I am understanding this right it is totally dying while you are driving. I am going to assume that it turns over at this point but does not sound aas if it is getting gas. If this is the case you have one of two or both problems. The fuel pump or the fuel relay. I would start with the fuel relay.

Van starts in park, but when put in any gear van stalls out.

before doing anything I would disconnect the battery, leave it a few minutes then refit and restart, try it then. does the engine STOP, as if you turned the ignition off? or dies it struggle and die?

The fuel pump reset button is the only thing I can think of to try when your problem occurs. As for your mechanic, believe it or not, might not tell you everything he knows until you guarantee him the work or his equipment isn't able to get the codes that a dealers can. If you have any warranty at all I would make sure that if you have anymore problems to take it to the dealerr and let them do their job. And another thing that might not be related, but is very important on Ford vehicles is that you secure the gas cap completely or it will set a code for that alone! Ford suggests in their manual 3/4 turn or better after the clicks, but it's best to do it until you can't stand it anymore.
