2006 Ford E-350 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.

Possible Engine Overheating, Cooling Fan Not Coming On - Diesel

Damage to the fan clutch wire harness and / or erratic fan clutch operation can cause the engine cooling to not turn on. A new fan clutch assembly will be needed to fix this problem.

Coolant Leakage from Heater Core, Possible Leakage onto Passenger Side Foot Well

Electrolysis can cause repeated failures of the heater core and radiator. The diagnosing technician should check for voltage present in the coolant, with the battery disconnected, because electrical current in the coolant causes electrolysis. Corroded or deteriorated parts should be replaced, and the coolant should be flushed. Ground straps can be added to help prevent future corrosion of components.

Wheel Chair Lift Platform Cracks

The wheelchair lift platform may crack and separate from the wheelchair lift. Additionally, the link arms of the lifts may have pivot holes that are too large, allowing the bearings to move out of position. Either case could cause the platform to fall from the vehicle, possibly causing injury. Dealers will inspect the platform for cracks and replace any damaged parts free of charge to resolve the concern.

Wheel Chair Lift Platform May Fall From Lift

On wheel chair lift equipped vehicles, the lifts have folding link arms that may have pivot holes that are too big, allowing the bearings to move out of position. This can result in the lift platform falling from the vehicle. Dealers will inspect the link arms for damage or for displaced bearings. The platform will be inspected for cracks, and any damaged parts will be replaced free of charge to resolve the concern.

Wheel Chair Lift Platform May Fall From Lift

2006 Ford E-350 Reviews

208,000 and still a good, strong running vehicle. Some minor electrical issues (power door locks) and leaks/weeping (oil pan, power steering). Only engine problem is occasional misfiring and the high cost to check/replace plugs and boots.
