1987 Ecoline van V-8 engine hasn't been started in about 7 years. It ran good before that. What do I have to do first to start it and get it running?


I would change all the fluids and either try dry gas or i would recommend that the gas tank be thoroughly drained and new gas put in the tank.If you have a hard time getting started try to use starter fluid in carburetor or if you have none just use gas. If the vehicle is equipped with fuel injectors locate air filter and follow air duct to engine that is where starter fluid or gasoline will have to be pored to prime the injectors.if it don't start the engine should be tuned up with a major tune up replace all filters ect even if it starts without tune up i would tune it up asap!

The van will not crank. We suspect there may be an automatic cutoff on the electric fuel pump.


if the fuel pump has a cutoff the engine will still crank do you mean it wont start but cranks over ? check for spark at plugs if so get yourself a fuel pressure gauge at auto parts store there is a schrader valve on the fuel rail with a black plastic cap screw on the fuel gauge cycle the key on and off slowly and see if you have fuel pressure you could also listen in the filler neck for the pump whine when you cycle the key it should turn on for a few seconds then turn off most likely the pump is bad its 12 years old and probably about 100,000 miles and always change the fuel pump, filters and the relay at the same time

I have a 1990 ford econoline van e350 that would not start, we replaced fuel pump and fuel injector, still nothing then we replaced the ignition module and still can't get it started


I have a 1989 E350 that had the same problem. I finally found that I had corroded connectors under the hood. There was a group of 5 connectors behind the air cleaner housing under the hood. Two of them had hot wires that feed the computer and the injectors. Repaird these and the van starts right up. Hope this helps.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1987 Ford Econoline Van?


The fuel filter is found in the front of the van on driver's side, as well. You also have to determine if the van is electric or mechanical fuel pump. If it is electrical, with a V8 engine, it could be towards the back near the firewall or the fuel tank. If you are having problems with the pump, and it is mechanical, the problem could be the diaphram is punctured. They only have limited usage, and may need to be replaced. I suggest also changing your fuel filter at the time you replace your pump. This is the most accurate information I can give you as I have had the same problem in the past. Fuel pumps normally get around 50K miles. depending on the usage and if you are in a dusty area or not, as road dust can clog your filters and lower the performance of your vehicle. Good luck

My 1999 ford will not starter i put new starter on it still will


An engine needs three things to run : Fuel, Compression and Fire. Check to make sure you are getting fire to the spark plugs. The fuel pressure regulator on the injector rail may be bad. There is a schrader valve on the injector rail, check to see if there is fuel there. It is a valve like a tire valve, depress it slightly to see if there is fuel there.
