#5 of 14 Transmission Failure
Dec 18, 2009 (1:57 pm)
I have a 1989 Ford E350 Box van,
Every time I shift into drive it jerks and will travel about 5 feet then disengages. It does this in every Gear. I canít travel more than 4 feet before the transmission stops working.
Any Idea How I can solve this problem?

#9 of 14 Re: 1995 Ford E-350 7.3 Diesel Bogging Problem [flattracker12m]

Hi Brady, I bought my 1995 Ford E-350 7.3 Diesel van about 3 years ago for $800 bucks. It needed some work but it too had an intermittant problem with it running rough and having a loss of power. By now you probably have solved your problem but if not my mechanic found a short under the valve cover gasket in the wiring harness. (something to do with the injectors)... anyway $1800 later (well worth it) the thing runs great other than being a rust bucket. It has over 350k miles on it and I will run it till it dies. Good luck!

#11 of 14 Diesel Misses and Dies in the Rain
Nov 08, 2011 (7:41 pm)
I have a 1999 F-250 with the 7.3. For the last 10 months, it has started missing, then dies in the rain. My mechanic replaced the IDM, the main computer, the cam shaft positioning sensor, and the mass (or map) sensor to no avail. If anyone has any suggestions, we are really close to a bullet and a cliff.
#12 of 14 Engine pulls down when transmission is engaged.
Nov 26, 2011 (7:47 pm)
When I put the shifter into drive or reverse the engine pulls down and will stall out if I don't depress the accelerator. It is worse when going to reverse. Feels as if it is in forward and reverse at the same time and kills the engine immediately, unless I get on the accelerator. I can get it rolling and it is ok until I stop. This is a 7.3 diesel van. Any ideas? Chuck
#13 of 14 99 7.3L Diesel Bogging Down - Fuel System?
Nov 28, 2011 (1:16 am)
I have a 99 7.3L Diesel with about 284K miles. We're original owners and it has been well maintained. We discovered a fuel leak and thought it was a leaking weld.....it wasn't. When the tank was pulled we found the rubber hoses/washers disinigrating where it goes from where you put in the fuel to the tank, at the vent, and a couple of other places. Those were all replaced. Since then the vehicle has been bogging down. The first 200 miles after the repair everything was fine. Then it starting dying every 5-10 min. We filled up the tank (it was down to 1/4 full) and added fuel injector cleaner. It ran for 15-20 minutes before dying. After another 150 miles of this, we replaced the fuel filter (earlier than usual-we've replaced it at 100K and 200K). It was falling apart...from what appears to be pressure. The car now runs for 30-45 min on a flat highway. But, when we go up a hill it really boggs down and we need to pray it makes it. The funny part is that after it sits for 2-5 minutes it starts right up and acts like nothing was wrong. I don't think it's the sensor since we had it replaced about 25K miles ago and the car restarts too easily...it's not like a loss of power but rather like it is starving. Could there be sediment in the tank that is causing this? Is there a way to check this without removing the tank AGAIN? What else could be the problem? Could a kinked hose cause this and is it possible to kink a hose when one re-installs a diesel fuel tank? Could a blocked-off vent cause this? (They blocked the vent (I think temporarily) to test for a fuel leak.) Oxygen sensors? Fuel pump? Injectors? (It's not missing except when it is acting like it's starving for fuel.) Are there any sending units or is there a "sediment" tank? HELP! We have 7 chidlren and need the vehicle to last another 8 years at least, affordably.
