92 ford aerostar 4.o makes a whinning noise when driving it, but just when you let off the gas. Also makes a big klunk when you put it in reverse
IT left a lot of transmission fluid on the highway. Transmission appears to work correctly.
The power steering on my girlfriends 94 Aerostar sounds like it really needs fluid. Where do i put fluid?
engine starts and gradually goes down completely, couldnt scan the car cos i didnt get a signal on the obd1 socket. changed fuel pump but problem continued until i disconnected what i think is the throttle position sensor just by the side of throttle body close to the idle control valve.
on taking out the sensor, it reads CTS which left me with a lot of wonder but whatever it is, the vehecle idles steadily since i disconnected it but it smokes and consumes fuel and at some times rough idles.
pls help
hi, ive got a 1997 ford aerostar that we cannot get to start, someone said that it was the crankshaft position sensor so we replaced that, and it still is not working, although the symptoms of a bad crankshaft position sensor is what its doing. It has been running rough for a while and losing power, which is why we thought that was the problem, but we cannot figure it out and we are hoping that it did not jump time. but can someone tell me what else it could be
we failed the smog test we just want to know what could be the problem

my 4.0 aerostar has exsessive n. o. reading.i changed the mas sensor and the check engine lite is now out.what other repairs should i do before i retest it?
Check engine comes on after 3 miles. code p0133 02 is read. This happened 35 miles after oil change. Can oil or leaking head gasket cause this?

how do i change the u joint on a 1996 ford aerostar mini van
Yesterday we went to open the rear hatch and, although it was unlocked, the handle would not operate the latching device. How do we access and fix or replace the mechanism?
The vehicle was operating fine and traveling downhill on a freeway when the transmisson seems to have failed. The transmission has fluid but we have absolutely no power transmission in any forward or reverse gear. Before we replace the transmission can we determine that the transmission is the problem or is it a torque converter problem? If we decide that the transmission needs to be replaced are there any words of wisdom that may help us along the way?

Thanks, Wayne
