problem with my 1989 ford e250 conversion van

Asked by May 16, 2015 at 03:59 PM about the 1990 Ford E-250 3 Dr STD Econoline Cargo Van Extended

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have just purchased a 1989 ford e250 conversion van. It has apparently
been sitting for several years. The mileage is 59,000. It stops running after 5
miles. I have had it towed 4 times in the past 2 weeks. Each time, it only ran
for 5 miles. It would barely start but if left for an hour it would start again.
They have replaced the computer, the distributor, the starter, the ignition, the
battery, the fuel pump and filter, the ground wire, the battery cables, blew out
the fuel lines and here I am stuck again. Any ideas please?

89 is the old Ford OBD1 system,have you had the codes pulled? You said ignition but did you replace the ignition module? Go to: http://check-engine-light-codes.blogspot.com/2006/04/ford- 1985-95-obd1-code-self-retrieval.html It will show you how to do it and the code list on what each number is directing you to.
