1996 Ford E-350 Problems

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

The front end may make a rattle noise over bumps. There may be handling issues, and play in the front wheels on inspection.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

In some cases with higher mileages, the Check Engine Light may come on due to insufficient Exhaust Gas Recirculation system (EGR) flow. For EGR flow concerns, the EGR valve is usually recommended for replacement and the intake manifold is removed to clean the EGR passages in the engine, which have clogged with carbon over time.
