1990 Ford E-150 Problems

Misfire, Hesitation, Rough Running from Engine, Notably After Ignition Wire Replacement

The engine may have a misfire, hesitation, and/or run roughly – notably after a service and/or ignition wire replacement. If after recent ignition wire replacement, the cause can be misrouted ignition wires. The wires from the distributor to the valve cover must be routed correctly to avoid interference and induction crossfire. Verify all clips are used to secure and separate ignition wires.

Stalling on road and at idle when hot

Rough idle, stalling at let off on road and at idle. Excess gas consumption and several error codes set. Excess raw gas smell and high gas consumption. Checked gas pressure at injector rail and found it to be three times greater than specs. Changed gas bypass relay & this corrected all codes and drivability problems.

Rear Axle Leaks Fluid

Common sources of rear axle leaks are the rear differential cover seal, and / or the pinion seal. Reseal the rear differential cover with the appropriate sealant and / or replace pinion seal for leakage.
