On yours, you can use atf but power "steering fluid" works just as well.. steering fluid is used as a specific requirement on later vehicles and if you use it in the 85, you can use the leftover to top off anything you have that is newer. (can't do that with atf)

When go to start the van you have to play with it , it will start after you try to start it up as the key is turning toward you and not away from you. what do I need 1985 e350 van

Assuming the vehicle starts fine once you find the "magic spot", we can rule out the starter, solenoid, relay and power. In the 1985 there are generally only 2 causes for this...
(1) The ignition switch (replace it)
(2) The wiring connections from the switch through the steering column.
The switch is the most likely, and also an easy and inexpensive repair. If the wiring connections are suspect than it may be a bit more complex as Ford ran the wiring in "loop" series and can be a real pain to trace. I suggest to replace the ignition switch and check all connections and wiring to make sure nothing is grounding out or modified by a previous owner.

Fuse box 1992 ford econoline

I have a 94 E350, and mine has 2 fuse boxes. One is under the steering column at the driver's seat, by the brake pedal. The other is under the hood, when you're facing the van it's just a little to the left and below the driver's side battery.

I have the 89-96 ford full size van chilton. I emailed scans of the fuse diagrams to The password is chilton. Go to, type in chilton for email address and chilton for password and click enter. Lem me know via that email if that was the wrong thing.
