1992 Ford Aerostar Problems
If you experience poor idle quality and fuel economy (and the Check Engine Light illuminates) after the exhaust system or motor has been removed and replaced, it could be that the oxygen sensor wires are crossed at the rear of the motor. Wiring schematics should be checked to ensure that the correct harness plug is connected to the corresponding sensor.
The valve cover gasket may fail, causing engine oil to leak onto the exhaust manifolds.
An engine knocking noise coming from the lower end during acceleration is common and could be caused by worn or damaged engine bearings.
The AC system may be performing poorly even if it seems to be functioning properly. This could be caused by the AC air blend door being out of adjustment.
