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.

Front End May Make Rattle Noise Over Bumps, Handling Issues

The front end may make a rattle noise over bumps. There may be handling issues, and play in the front wheels on inspection. If there is up and down movement on the front wheels while the lower control arms are being supported, inspect the upper and lower ball joints for excessive play. These are prone to failure from moisture entry and lack of lubrication. The ball joints should be replaced as needed.

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.

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.

Ford E-350 Reviews

The company i work for has 8 of these and all of them drink oil. mileage runs from 40,000 to 70,000, The one i drive has 42,000 and i have to add a quart about every 800 miles. mine is the worst but all of them drink oil. strange that all 8 drink that black liquid. year rages from 2009-2011
Love my E-350. Big and heavy it runs great over these rough roads on the Navajo Indian Reservation. Would love to have an easy way to disable the RSC as I live 2 miles up a dirt and gravel washboard road with a 4% grade hill on the way up. Noticed the review talking about difficulty keeping it on the road. I had this problem. it was a layer of mud that had hardened on the inside of the rear...
YOU CAN'T KEEP THIS FORD IN THE ROAD, YOU HAVE TO DRIVE IT ALL THE TIME. I HAVE PUT NEW BALL JOINTS UPPER AND LOWER, NEW TRIES, LINE UP 3 TIMES, NOW THEY TELL ME IT COULD BE STEERING BOX. JUST WANTED TO KNOW IF ANYONE HAS HAD THIS HAPPEN TO YOUR VAN.
