At first I wasn't getting any heat and then the gauge was all over THE place and now it's wanting to overheat so I play with the heat and defrost while driving to cook it down but it's not loosing water and I don't know if it's the thermostat or gauge or what

Trying to find our where the location of the motor mounts are on my ford e150 ecnolive van

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!

will the coil work and be running bad at high speeds

I just bought this van and it ran fine for a Very short time. Now it keeps jerking jumping like it is missing spark or wants to stall, but it never stalls Ferels like I am going down a bumpy road in a way. It is very annoying and I am worried it will just get worse. Any easy fixes or is this something major? My engine light pops on and off, but never stays on for more than a minute or so. Also my airbag light flashes on and off. To top it off, the factory installed alarm will go off by itself with no "outside" help.

my van runs great in cool weather but sputters and boggs , runs very slow in hot weather,but when the nite temp cools we can bring it home . can't seem to fix the problem .we have changed the fuel filter and a sensor i'm not sure which one

how can I fix this

my ford van when driving down the road at high way speed,it will jerk in and out like its cutting out,it doesnt do it steady just every few minutes it will act up,then go back to running perfect,and when idling you can feel it kinda cutting out,feels like it quits getting gas for a second,or aint getting enough. fuel pump is working fine you can hear it.when you turn ignition on or if you crawl underneath. could it be fuel filter partially plugged,just bought van few days ago,runs and shifts great except for this issue,motor is the 5.8 thanks

after setting over night, or30 minutes

I recently bought a 1992 Ford E-150 Conversion van. I replaced the serpentine belt and the air pump and gave it a tune-up. The van was overheating so I also replaced the thermostat, hoses, and radiator. Right after replacing the radiator, the temperature gauge on the instrument panel stopped working. I can't tell if the van is running hot and I am not sure why it stopped working? Can anyone help with my next move?

i have replaced the engine with a 302 out of a Lincoln that’s all I know about the car it came out of. Swapped all stuff from engine to the other. NOW,@#$%^&^&$. when it warms up, and when you come to a stop or it is idling (after being warm) it changes from a regular idle to a rough running all most wants to die (but does not) shakes, needles on the dashboard wig out, If I step on the gas and rev it a little it quits for a while, but dose it again a few minute Later and on and on. Also, when driving it has a little trouble shifting from 2nd to drive. @$%#%^$%^%&, I HAVE REPLACED:
Spark plugs
Spark plug wires
Airs throttle control motor???
Timing chain
Cleaned the injectors
New map sensor
O2 sensor
Smoke test for vacuum for leaks (one found) fixed, no change.
Spayed carb cleaner all over to see if I could find any other leaks, (none found)
I Did the do it your self-test with a 4” wire to get the on board computer to kick out the problem codes by counting the number of blinks from the check engine light, i got a 114, 116 told me nothing!
Full tank of high octane gas just for kicks nothing.
The Ford dealership in my home town said they didn’t have the diagnostics computer/equipment to go far/deep enough into the engine to diagnose the problem, and referred me to another bigger ford store.
They also, forgot to put the EGR line back on, causing the check engine light to come on freak me out. They said wasn’t anything they did, and sent me down the road.
5**** F-I-V-E**** mechanics have looked at this van. Yet the dam van is still STILLLLL! not running right!!!! I do not know what to do. Similar problem have been discuss on line and in forums but no one will say what they did to fix the problem. It’s just the problem, or they want money for an answer that may or may not work, $48 flippen dollars for a maybe is too much after all I have spent. Though I’m still ahead $150, for the van $350, for engine and about, and $600ish for the list above. Though I’m coming to my limit. Has anyone experience this problem or silemer problem, what about the on board computer, should I replace It I can get an aftermarket for about $200. Where do I go from here? Thank you for reading.
