1992 Ford E-350 Q&A
1992 Ford E-350 Question: 1992 E350 5.8L No Start condition despite a lot of new parts.
Please help! 1992 E350 w/5.8L, 160k miles. 4 weeks into this mysterious No Start problem now. :-( Unable to have it towed anywhere because of remote location. Update to where I'm at with the engine: Electrical: New Ignition Coil, Distributor (PIP), Cap, Rotor, Wires, Plugs, ICM, Ignition Switch, PCM Relay and Fuel Pump Relay Fuel: New Fuel Pump, Filter, Fuel Pressure Regulator Sensors replaced: ICM, IAC, MAP Checked: Fuel Inertia Switch, Fuel Pressure @ 40psi, Fresh gasoline, No air restriction that I can see, all hoses connected, sprayed carb cleaner in Throttle neck. Currently, it is now in a No Start condition. In the first 3 weeks the engine would start for 6-10 sec then die. Now, it *almost* catches at WOT but will not not start at all, even with Starting Fluid (Ether). Reset codes by disconnecting the battery for 10 min. Still generating only Codes 55 and 56 the last 4 weeks in KOEO mode since the engine will not start, much less Idle. Any 5.8L/351windsor gurus out there? - cjlopr
Ok lets see, we have good ON TIME spark at the plugs, good fresh fuel ENTERING the cylindes, CORRECT compression, CLEAR exhaust path. If all the above is right, start the van and drive away. Make sure dist. is set correctly also check to see if you have drowned plugs with spray. Pull a couple of plugs and see if they are wet. May have to install all new ones again. Check oil level, make sure it is not over filled if press. reg. was bad. Get back ti us on this one. - pushrod
