I am going on vacation so I hope this helps,
Surely since its a car-borated engine with numerous vacuum lines, one vacuum line could be leaking causing this condition.
Setting that aside for now you could have a skewed T.C.C. valve. Thats the transmission converter clutch valve. It locks up the transmission torque converter to aid in fuel mileage at speeds above around 40 mph. The unit is normally locked out of 1st gear. When it acts up it applies at the higher speeds but doesn't disengaged. This will cause the engine to stall. The feeling to the driver is quite distinctive. The normally is a shaking or vibration felt the moment before the engine stalls, it could feel like a shutter not unlike the sensation one feels when driving a stick shift and comes to a stop in gear without depressing the clutch petal. The hole thing is controlled by the engine computer. There is a connector on the transmission which is normally square with 4 receptacles, disconnect it and drive the car as you normally would. See if it stops stalling. If so you need to replace the solenoid. Its located in the transmission under the transmission pan. This a long shot but without inspecting all the vacuum lines and numerous other sup-systems its well worth looking at a could be a fast test. Just unplug it and drive it normally

When the key is on, should the flow from my gasline remain constant or back off. Or does it back of cause it is nolonger a pressurized system?

The pump should turn on for 2 seconds with the key in on position. Then the computer will turn the pump off, and won't turn it back on until the engine is cranking. The 2 second period is to put pressure in the line and the fuel rail. It should hold pressure for about 15 or 20 minutes that way, before slowly bleeding off. It sounds like yours is working right.

I have a 1991 ford f 250 van engine light is on when i drive it engine light gos off and on when it comes back on the truck will hesitate what will cause that

You'll have to do a scan on the computer to find the trouble codes.
Your model can be done without a scan tool, research "check OBD 1 code Ford" online for the procedure, or you can find it in most repair manuals.

Ford Ranger/Explorer/Mountaineer 1991-1999 Engine - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1 through 5)

In the process of removing the engine, you will come across a number of steps which call for the removal of a separate component or system, such as "disconnect the exhaust system'' or "remove the radiator.'' In most instances, a detailed removal procedure can be found elsewhere in this information.
It is virtually impossible to list each individual wire and hose which must be disconnected, simply because so many different model and engine combinations have been manufactured. Careful observation and common sense are the best possible approaches to any repair procedure.
Removal and installation of the engine can be made easier if you follow these basic points:

If you have to drain any of the fluids, use a suitable container. Always tag any wires or hoses and, if possible, the components they came from before disconnecting them. Because there are so many bolts and fasteners involved, store and label the retainers from components separately in muffin pans, jars or coffee cans. This will prevent confusion during installation. After unbolting the transmission or transaxle, always make sure it is properly supported. If it is necessary to disconnect the air conditioning system, have this service performed by a qualified technician using a recovery/recycling station. If the system does not have to be disconnected, unbolt the compressor and set it aside. When unbolting the engine mounts, always make sure the engine is properly supported. When removing the engine, make sure that any lifting devices are properly attached to the engine. It is recommended that if your engine is supplied with lifting hooks, your lifting apparatus be attached to them. Lift the engine from its compartment slowly, checking that no hoses, wires or other components are still connected. After the engine is clear of the compartment, place it on an engine stand or workbench. After the engine has been removed, you can perform a partial or full teardown of the engine using the procedures outlined in this information.
On vehicles equipped with air conditioning, it is vital to refer toprior to performing this procedure. On 1991-93 models, it is not necessary to have the A/C system evacuated since the A/C compressor can be unbolted from the engine, and positioned out of the way, without disconnecting any of the refrigerant lines.
  1. On 1994-99 models equipped with air conditioning, have the system discharged and evacuated by a MVAC, EPA-certified, automotive technician. Have the A/C compressor removed from the engine.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the hood.
  4. Remove the air intake tube and the accessory drive belt.
CAUTION When draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Drain the cooling system.
  2. Remove the cooling fan, shroud, radiator and all cooling system hoses.
  3. On all models except the 1996 Explorer with the 5.0L engine and all 1997-99 Explorer/Mountaineer models, label and detach all engine wiring and vacuum hoses which will interfere with engine removal. Position the wire harness out of the way.
  4. On 1996 Explorers with the 5.0L engine and all 1997-99 Explorer/Mountaineer models, the engine wiring harness is removed with the engine. Only label and detach the harness connectors from components which must be removed. Also unplug the harness at the main bulkhead (firewall), transmission and PCM connections.
  5. On 1991-93 models equipped with air conditioning, unbolt the A/C compressor from the engine without disconnecting the refrigerant lines and position it out of the way.
  6. Unbolt the power steering pump from the engine and position it out of the way. The fluid lines do not have to be disconnected.
  7. Detach the accelerator and transmission control cables from the throttle body, and the control cables' mounting bracket from the engine.
  8. Release fuel system pressure, then disconnect the fuel supply and return lines from the engine.
  9. Remove any remaining mounting brackets and/or drive belt tensioners.
  10. Raise the vehicle and safely support it on jackstands.
CAUTION The EPA warns that prolonged contact with used engine oil may cause a number of skin disorders, including cancer! You should make every effort to minimize your exposure to used engine oil. Protective gloves should be worn when changing the oil. Wash your hands and any other exposed skin areas as soon as possible after exposure to used engine oil. Soap and water, or waterless hand cleaner should be used.
  1. Drain the engine oil and remove the oil filter.
  2. Detach the exhaust system from the exhaust manifolds.
  3. Remove the starter motor and starter motor wiring from the engine.
  4. Label and detach any under vehicle engine wiring, which will interfere with engine removal.
  5. On vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions, matchmark the position of the torque converter to the flywheel. Remove the bolts.
  6. Remove all of the engine-to-transmission bolts.
All Ford engines use a plate between the engine and the transmission. Some models may have a smaller, removable, flywheel/flexplate
  1. If equipped, remove the transmission oil cooler line retainers-to-engine bolts.


Fig. 3: Engine mounting points 4.0L engines


Fig. 5: Engine damper mounting for 4.0L engines
  1. Remove the front engine support insulator-to-crossmember retaining fasteners.
  2. If equipped, remove the engine damper mounting bracket from the engine. The bracket may use two TORX® bolts for the lower mounting points.
  3. Partially lower the vehicle and support it with jackstands in the new position.
  4. Support the transmission with a floor jack.
  5. Using a engine crane or hoist, lift the engine out of the vehicle. Be sure to lift the engine slowly and check often that nothing (such as wires, hoses, etc.) will cause the engine to hang up on the vehicle.
  6. At this point, the engine can be installed on an engine stand.

Timing Belt Replacement+Diagram

No it will NOT bend valves on this particular engine, if it goes out of time. I would replace BOTH the timing belt and the drive belt at the same time, since both are very inexpensive, even from the Ford dealer. Line up both timing marks on both the cam and crank sprockets in the 12 o'clock position. The marks are very easy to see, once you remove the timing belt cover. Hope this helps.
