Question about 1990 Ford Aerostar

3 Answers

I was working on a 1990 Ford Areostar, had a couple unqualified shade tree mechanics working with me. They replaced the starter, so i didnt observe the job. The starter does not work at the ingnition switch but if you cross over the selenoid it starts , any idea of what these dimwits did? Or what should I check? Time is money on this job.

Sounds like wires are reversed on the solenoid. One side goes to the battery and the other to the starter relay.

How to fix 1996 1300 ford tracer noisy tapperts


Tappets clicking? If they are hydraulic, it might be due to intake orifices clogged. An old shade tree mechanic's trick we used to have some success with is add a quart of automatic transmission fluid to the oil and run it for a while as it might clean the clogs. It seemed to work about half the time. It might be worth a try.

I replaced all timeing chains & cassets on a 04 ford explore ,w/ 4.0 engine two Years ago . Why would the be hammer'd, the replacement parts were an aftermarket online brand!


So many possible reasons... Is this your 'weekend warrior' mount? Do you ignore basic maintenance? Was the work originally done by a 'shade tree' mechanic? And aftermarket part quality varies greatly depending on the company and place of manufacture.

When pushing down the pedal, the gears and pto is grinding more and more as time goes by. I adjusted the clutch pedal , but no help. Can this problem be fixed by a shade tree mechanic or do I need to take...


I am not a diesel mechanic, a tractor mechanic, or a shade tree mechanic. But, it sounds to me like it is time for a new clutch pack. Anyone with reasonable knowledge of simple mechanics can do this job at a much cheaper price than a professional diesel or tractor mechanic, but it can be a heavy duty job. I would weigh the differences in downtime of my equipment and the ability of my shade tree mechanic.
