2003 Ford E-250 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.

Engine Idle Rolls Up and Down

If engine idle rolls up and down, and diagnosis rules out Idle Air Control (IAC) valve issues and vacuum leaks, the Programmable Speedometer/Odometer Module (PSOM) can be at fault electronically. The instrument cluster will need to be replaced, the PSOM is inside the cluster.

Clunk Noise when Pulling Away from a Stop

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.
