Sounds like the engine timing is not quite right. This may be caused by a several issues, but the first thing that comes to my mind is an adjustment to the timer belt.

Per your notes, looks like you feel confident about doing the job by yourself, so I highly recommend to visit your local auto store (i.e. Autozone) and look for the Haynes Repair Manual ofr your Ford E-150. It will diagnose exactly what is the problem. There is a step-by-step guide so I'm sure you will be able to fix it.

Be safe. Good luck!

Van stops after 5 mins then starts after it sits


Not sure what year,make model or engine size this van is but if it is a ford i would start by having the ignition control module tested, sounds like it heats up and dies out and then cools down and van restarts.

Unplug the wiper motor and replace the fuse. If it works the wiper motor is shorted out. It may also be the wiring rubbed thrue somewhere causing a short.

Windstar 2001 had it since new. over 120,000 miles suddenly started stalling cuople months ago had alternator replaced, bearings anything on the serpentine belt incl oil and water pump checked or replaced....


The problem with your van is the CAM Sensor, I believe the noise you are hearing is kind of a chirping sound. I just had mine fixed (12/19/09) it was about $150 for parts and labor from a local Mech. not a dealer.

The van stalls without notice at times when ready


This sounds like a classic case of either a dirty/faulty IAC (Idle Air Control) motor or a sticking EGR valve. If you can prevent it from stalling by keeping your fot on the gas slightly and it always restarts right away and runs good when restarted, I'd suspect the IAC first. If it "chugs"when stopping and will run rough even with a little (not a lot) of gas pedal and/or it runs rough when restarted, I'd suspect the EGR.

Check the battery voltage, if it is below spec, replace the battery, and most likely all of the symptoms will go away.
