SOURCE: 1992 ford aerostar van wont start after it rains

I just had this exact problem. Wouldn't start or took 15 trys to start, but then ran smoothly. Sometimes a little rough starting on dry days, but pretty much hard starting after rain. I was thinking water in my tank/bad gas, but shooting some starter fluid in my intake didn't give me the initial blast at start up... that certainly indicated that it was electrical...
...but the next day the vehicle stalled in the middle lane of a three lane street, wouldn't restart. After pushing it to the curb, I got to the point where I was checking the wire from the coil to the distributor cap. Two thirds of the wire lifted right out. This wire was in 2 pieces! Amazing that it had been running at all, with this one wire burned down to a whisper, before it broke completely. There were signs of heat/elec damage to the wire also at a point an inch away on this wire.
Replacing the wires is absolutely the first thing to try. It's cheap and easy to do, and it should be done (or the wires inspected/tested) routinely anyway. The coil-to-distributor coil gets more engine heat and more use than any of the indiv spark plug wires and hence wears much faster.
I am betting this wire is much more likely your problem than a coil failure. Good Luck!

SOURCE: can't find tensioner and how to loosen belt to change alternator

Just a clue: the water pump and the tensioner are the only items that run off the BACK side of the belt.

So, it is the pulley that is NOT the waterpump- and it will have a 9/16ths nut sticking out of it (so that you can put a wrench on it to remove tension from the belt)
Does this get you moving in the correct direction?

I would look into the ign. switch. The ign.switch sends the signal to the solenoid to activate it.

that would be a fuel problem. either your fuel filter is clogged up, or you carburator needs a good cleaning.

SLIDING DOOR REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT


I had to remove the inside door panel and drill a hole with a 1 1/4 hole saw where the linkage is at the rear of the door. I actually drilled a second hole to shine light in to see. There is a metal bracket at the back that is bent. I used a long screwdriver to pry and bend it back again. You can release the door using the screwdriver to move that bracket also.

1993 Ford Aerostar Parasite drain on battery


id check the ignition coil to ensure its not arcing that seems to be a problem on the aerostars. One thing ive known people to do and recommend for troublesome times when they cant find whats draining the battery. Is to get a battery cut off switch and install it which is fairly easy and takes ten minutes. But first check the ignition coil to see if its arcing, also check to see if you can find whats drawing power by chasing it down with a multimeter.


Thanks,
Nate
