2000 Ford E-150 Problems

Rough Running Engine and Possible Check Engine Light

The Check Engine Light may illuminate, the engine may run rough and have misfires on acceleration. Commonly the ignition coils and/or the ignition coil boots are the cause of this problem. The rubber boot that insulates the coil to the spark plug can dry and crack allowing arcing. Inspect the coils and boots, and replace them as needed. Our technicians also recommend replacing the coil boots any time the spark plugs are replaced.

Check Engine Light Illuminated, No Driving Issues Noticed

The Check Engine Light may come on with no driving issues noticed. If P0401, P0402, P1400 and / or P1401 are in memory, the Delta Pressure Feedback Exhaust Gas Recirculation (DPFE) sensor is at fault. The DPFE sensor should be replaced.

Loud Popping Noise and Misfire Experienced

The spark plugs may become dislodged from the cylinder heads. A loud popping noise can be heard and a subsequent misfire experienced. The threads on the spark plug ports in the cylinder head(s) can become stripped or missing when the spark plug is dislodged. The threads in cylinder heads may be replaced using “Lock-N-Stitch” aluminum inserts. Our technicians tell us thread replacement is performed when the vehicle is out of base warranty. Vehicles under base warranty receive a new cylinder head.

2000 Ford E-150 Questions

I have a 2000 Ford e-150 van with a 4.2 engine, the check engine light comes on. (1 answer)

The engine stumbles maybe every 50 miles. I have replaced plugs, wires and a fuel pump, it has about 90,000 miles on it. I had a shop put in a remote alarm system for me about three years ago, they must have disconnected where you read the codes (it does not work). Any help would be useful.

heater blowing cold air. (2 answers)

I have changed the thermostat,heater hoses are hot and in good condition. I have a blend door switch and and a selector switch coming in the mail and the door actuators seem to be working fine. No codes on my scanner. Any suggestions on what I'm missing?

Thank you

no diagnostic codes readable from scan tool--bad miss and service engine light (2 answers)

Two different car parts places scanned my van and received no codes from my system--they thought loose wires under dash (I don't believe it) or a blown fuse for the diagnostic system--I don't know what fuse that would be or how it would be listed
