Van won't start only clicks new battery already.
Had high idle 37mph down the road! I replaced the throttle position sensor and idles properly now, sounds great, installed new battery that night. Ran for 3 days sat for 2 days in below freezing weather. Finally started by pushing on and off the gas pedal and a continuous forward on the key. Made an awful noise trying to start as I kept forward on the key. I know everything I didn't want to do but at least it started. I let it run in the drive for 20 minutes. Drove in and out of the driveway and I turned of with the key. Immediately I tried to start it back up and only a click at the solenoid. I next replaced the starter at the flywheel just clicks at the solenoid by battery. Replaced the solenoid behind the grill still just clicks at the solenoid and I also heard another click from somewhere on the passenger side, not sure if it slicked prior to replacing the starter? Maybe it is the starter solenoid on the starter itself or is there a relay or something I need to look at on the passenger side? I read 12 volts through my analog test meter. Did I do something to harm an electrical connection? I need help getting the starter to spin I believe I have a good butt joint connection to the new starter from my ignition cable. The wire with a butt joint connector came with the new starter and I made a fresh cut to join it to the car wiring.
Van has front and rear heat. Need to replace all of the hoses. Parts store says it takes 5/8 and 3/4 inch hoses.Need to know how long each one is (does one go to the back and the other from back to front?)Also, I can't remember the name of it, but it's the metal tubing that is part of the hose. Do you know what it is called and if possible what size is it? Dealer doesn't carry this part anymore, and I need to make one ( or two). Thanks
we replaced the coil twice,sparkplugs,rotary bug and cap. Was running great, turned it off now wont start again
When I brake the pedal goes to the floor. Puddle of brake fluid under steering. Need ballpark cost to fix.
The steering is hard to control because the vehicle wanders from left to right. It's worse at higher speeds. I'm constantly having to correct it and it's much worse when passing a semi or in strong winds. What is causing this problem? Could it be low air pressure? Could it be damaged control arms and/or bushings? I've read about steering gearbox failure and that scares me! Any ideas? Thanks. Mo

The heater core is not clogged, I flushed the radiator and installed a thermostat. The hoses to and from.the heater core still won't get hot. What could be the problem? It had heat before the repair

Service Engine Light is ON, I Clear the code and it come back. How to fix it
Engine did not over heat. But when I parked there was a hissing of coolant under the van at the driver side rear wheel area-like the classic "pop the hood radiator leak". Why at the rear and what am I looking for to repair?
I changed the distributor cap and rotor,spark plugs and wires. Before I did all that it was running
Fluids are full
A/C fan stops on acceleration and starts up on deceleration, just fan not compressor. Changed fan resistor in air blower, and air mass sensor. HELP!!!
Is there any diagram for the transmission i know that probably sounds weird but i want to know what it suppose to look like after i take the pan off!!! Any help or advise would be much appreciated!
is there anyplace online to find a video that shows how to get to the blend door I've seen lots for the F-150's but can't find anything for the vans mine is a 98 need to open the door for the winter
I replaced the pump and the loud whining sound continue so I replaced the replacement pump with another pump and the sound is still there. What do you think it could be--rack and pinion?
99 ford e150 4.2 v6 auto with od 163,000 miles was running perfect shifting fine it had 1/4 tank of gas i drove around most the day no promblems then i stopped and filled gas tank up 30 some gallons and added some stp cleaner its the stuff in a bottle like sea foam added a little to the oil and the rest in gas tank went home about an hour later i went for a drive i got around 3 miles and engine started losing power and hesitating then transmission didnt want to shift this happened at around 40-45mph so i manually down shifted and it regain power and i took off then i shut overdrive off with button and no shifting promblems finished my 7 mile trip to other property tranny fluid showed on cold when i checked it so it was low but then it cooled down took it 2miles down the road and ran perfect passing gear kicked in ran like new on the way back it lost power and van shut off battery light and oil light came on wouldnt start got it started and made the 1/4mile back to property just bought the van i noticed when i filled gas tank it had a key lock gas cap said click 3 times it diddnt click later after battery light came on put it on the charger and it was at like 30% just letting you know these 2 details thinking it could be the fuel cap or battery causing promblems thanks john
I replace the distributor and did a tuneup when it first started doing it six months ago,the tack also stopped working. The problem is back and now it is also cutting out while driving, almost like turning the key off and back on again. The engine light is off and on and sometimes seems like it runs better when the light is on. I have recently replaced the idle air control valve, with some success the idle seems to be better at times. Also the transmission shifts early and at times shifts very hard. There are times were the truck runs okay
trying to put on seat covers over the back
