at first only had air coming out of defrost.blend door actuator was bad replaced it now it works.did not solve the problem.a mechanic named pushrod on this site sent a youtube link watched a video rerouted vacuum line all vents work as they should now.did not solve the problem.replaced thermostat.did not solve the problem.back flushed heater core.did not solve the problem.still no heat.plenty of air at vents. went to to auto parts stores both said should be a valve on one of the heater hoses that should open and close to let hot water flow i dont find any such valve.
only get air out of defrost vents no matter what setting it is on.blend door actuator was bad replaced it .still no heat and air only out of defrost.nothing works fine.
Seems to happen more if it idled for a while with the AC on. After it sits for a couple hours it will start again. Seems like vapor lock but no pressure at fuel cap , plenty of electric strength but doesn't even make a click when trying to start.
cuts out on mild accelleration.does not do this all the time.
Changed fuel filter. It runs great as long as foot on gas.
Feathering gas helps but dies at low rpm
doesn't appear to water in the oil. engine runs rough, check engine light came on says misfire at #1. ever since I put a new radiator in I started having the coolant issue.
I have checked fuel pressure and performed a fuel volume test. I disconnected all 3 catalytics and drove, same problem. When I cycle the ignition while running the engine accelerates fine 2 times, then it goes back to having a lean misfire. I sprayed Throttle body cleaner down intake hose while the engine was bogging and it accelerated up in RPM's. I cleaned the Mass Air flow sensor. The only code I have is for the EPC sensor (P1747). I checked for vacuum leaks. The problem is with all the cylinders. Remember it accelerates perfect when ignition is cycled while engine running. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks

those codes came up on the scanner what would you recommend i should replace to fix problem?
2000 for E 250 van wouldn't start after 30 minutes or so it started did that several time over a few month. Then one day it wouldn't start at all. shop said it was a fuel pump replaced it was fine for a couple weeks then started all over again took it back in they replaced the pump again. fine for a few days then did it again. I notice prior to not starting it seems to run bad, shudders or misses at certain speeds like a fouled plug then sometime the next time I try to start it or several starts later it won't start. I notice when it dosen't start I don't hear the fuel pump humming when i turn on the ignition. then I'll try it several times then it humms again and it starts.
runs rough has limeted power
What is the level of difficulty to change the power steering high pressure hose on a 2000 Ford E250 Van? What is a fair estimate cost for a mechanic to do the replacement?
