2001 Ford E-250 ProblemsRough 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.
A defective key-in warning chime switch can cause the ignition cylinder to bind from run to start and / or start to run movements. The key-in warning chime switch will need to be replaced.
If the slip yoke in the driveshaft is binding, it can make a clunking noise when pulling away from a stop. The slip yoke will need to be lubricated.
