Have had a few of these in with carb faults but were 2 barrel type.basic checks first,is pcv valve hose under carb not split(runs to valve cover or oil cap on this model?).try driving without airfilter element for test,have had one in that looked clean but had a fine mist of oil on it that blocked and caused air starve and stall on power.Did both problems start at same time? or maybe you are chasing 2 probs.being a ute.I have had probs with rusting petrol tanks and blocked fuel filters

Xf falcon ute has an annoying rattle on passenger side either dash or door any suggestions please


If the rattle can be heard while stopped and engine running then have someone looking for you try finding the source or engine not running then I would go to the side of the car and try bouncing/moving the car up and down. This may give you an idea as to where and or what is causing the rattle.

How do i replace my hand brake cable on my ford falcon XH ute


wait a bit ....is it rear disc or rear drums on that ute

will assume its under dash hand brake pull lever tyoe

the disc setup may have single cables for each rear
rear disk brake cable is approx $ 150

if your XH it is close to the XE and XF set up drums
a complete one line loop cable outer and inner
with plastic grommets along the back chassis rail ( they break )
so the one inner cable works both rear handbrake shoes


hand brake cable is a shorty

undo the adjustment thread
just below the hand brake cable point up somewhere above the gearbox
(drums )
after new cable fitted
drums are adjusted with the old school way with the handbrake adjuster tool
handbrake cable adjusted

then the handbrake handle when pulled out to hold needs14 plus clicks
comes out a long way for some weird reason
on drums
if cable adjustment is done wrong onrear drums the handbrake cable will come loose in the drum as you drive along

Hi guys i have a 1989 ford xf falcon ute and i got a starting problem! I wants to start but everytime i touch the throttle to get it to run it dies straight away, i have checked for spark and it is really...


If you can get it to run a tad more by just spraying starter fluid into carb, then the carb needs to be cleaned, repaired, or replaced. All the spark, compression in the world will get you no where without the gas!!!!!!

Hi, will the suspension, brakes, shockers and struts from my 1989 ford EA sedan fit my 1990 XF falcon ute?


i dont think so bro, ive got an xf ute and im certain ea's run a strut type suspension and the utes have non struts. if your keen tho look at pps (ppr one of them, google it) strut conversions, expensive but worth it if its gonna be a flash ute.

Falcon ute lights go dim at night and battery goes flat.


either your alternator is faulty or your battery is not holding charge
i would check the alternator and the battery and replace either or both

Firing order for a 1996 EF ford falcon


EF & EL are 1,5,3,6,2,4
EF has a coil pack under the inlet manifold the EL has a distributor
EF uses a waste spark system so 2 plugs are fired at the same time eg 1 & 6 - 2 & 5 - 3 & 4
