1993 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.
If a noise from the rear end is heard when going around turns or after driving at highway speed for an extended period, this could be caused by a failing deferential clutch kit. An updated differential clutch kit available.
An engine knocking noise coming from the lower end during acceleration is common and could be caused by worn or damaged engine bearings.

1993 Ford Aerostar Reviews
I have a 1993 Ford Aerostar van; 3.0. It has served me well even during this bad economy. It has moved me when I lost my home. It has even provided me with a safe place to sleep. "Big Red" has her issues just like me and needs help that I do not know how to do. I believe if I had a picture, step by step manual, I could do some of it to keep her going but I do not have one. The heat and cooling do not work. The horn do not work and; two weeks ago; the selector handle broke; push it up it falls back down; like it is stripped. I took the steering cover off and the cylinders do not meet. There is a small cable that has broke from the white handle piece on it, also. [I think, that is the cable that shows what gear you are in.] If anyone can send me a repair manual or help me repair her; Please do. I am unable to pay. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or PO Box 9243, Fayetteville, NC 28311. I will send you a picture of the van when she is working right again.
I drove this van for about a year and a half. We repair the transmission once and replace it twice. They never could align the wheels.
my wife and I love our aerostar, have had a lot of cars , but not as good as a aerostar, very little trouble with it.try to keep it up.
