Question about 1999 Ford Econoline
I have 1999 E350 Ford Van w/ a 5.4 gas engine with low miles that won't start. I used to get it to idle, but then it had absolutely no power or RPM and had a little black smoke out the exhaust. It's now getting good fuel PSI and cranks over good. I've changed the Crank and Cam sensors,but no luck. I've even switched out the PCM w/ an identical one, but no start. The plugs are black w/ carbon but not wet or fouled out. After changing them, still no luck. At one point, it was dumping raw gas into the oil pan. (Had to change the oil). Right now it's not getting fire to the coils. My book tells me to "Check the Reference Voltage thru the PCM on the Throttle Position PID", but what is PID and how do I "access it" per the service manual? (It's getting a good 5V from the Sig Rtn to the VRef, so I'm good there.) Thanks
Pid is parameter identification. It is telling you to read the tps on a scanner. So you would access it with a scanner. Unplug the cam sensor and crank it, see if you get spark. You are checking the coil pulse when cranking with a noid light?
