    2003 Ford E-350 5.4L No Start

    We did erase the lean codes and the computer didn't throw any more codes after we got it started. Code readers from AutoZone - I've always found them to run the gauntlet - like the staff just randomly pulls one off of the shelf and opens it. I've found very different models between stores but...

    2003 Ford E-350 5.4L No Start

    So... 2003 E350 5.4L's do indeed have both an ECT (located on the coolant passage above the valley, behind the alternator - easily accessible) and also CHT's, which is impossibly located on the inner angle of the driver-side head, under the intake runners. All you can clearly see of the CHT is...

    2003 Ford E-350 5.4L No Start

    Marketing material for the reader states that it reads generic codes >:( |!!| The one redeemable aspect of the van engine compartment layout is that it gives great access to the back of the block which should make accessing the CHT quite easy. Seeing the ECT might pose a little...

    2003 Ford E-350 5.4L No Start

    Nick - it would be nice to have that much money wouldn't it!! Not only to buy a $60k truck but also to just have people whisk it away, fix it, and not care enough to know what they did! Sounds like a lot of work they had done. I'm guessing the module he had replaced was the Fuel Injection...

    2003 Ford E-350 5.4L No Start

    Yeah, I'm on that "confused boat" with you. Some references list both, some say they did away with the ECT but still refer to it as the ECT instead of properly the CHT, yet others say that there's both and the ECT is only used to run the temp gauge and the CHT is used by the PCM... But...

    2003 Ford E-350 5.4L No Start

    Sorry for burying it in a long post. Its an Actron CP 9550. For the most part it just reads codes but does have a freeze frame. Unfortunately the codes have been reset during our work the other day and from the user's manual for the reader it seems to just have the ability to freeze when the...

    2003 Ford E-350 5.4L No Start

    Will be working on it this afternoon and will report back. Was thinking about kev2's question on the ECT. I did a little research and it seems that ford did away with the ECT in lieu of the cylinder head temperature sensor +/- 2000 model year. Research shows that on the 2003 5. 4 its either...

    2003 Ford E-350 5.4L No Start

    Thanks for the replies guys. Don't have a manual/FSM to reference but internet searches have given the fuel pressures of 35-45 KOEO, 28-45 KOER. Its the internet (valid?) and I can't verify them but I've seen the numbers posted on several different forums by several different people...

    2003 Ford E-350 5.4L No Start

    Trying to troubleshoot/repair for a buddy. 2003 Ford E350 with 5. 4L, 130k on the odometer, no issues up until yesterday morning when it wouldn't start. Cranks fine but won't catch. Randomly during cranking it will sometimes half-catch but not fire up, just back to cranking. Motor seems to...

    1996 Bronco Front Wheel Hub

    I think I may have found the issue - and I'm a big fan of putting out fixes for public knowledge. 1996 was the last production year of the bronco and vehicles manufactured after 05/95 had pick-a-part axles put in from remaining stock. So, the BOM on the axles from these years may indicate...

    1996 Bronco Front Wheel Hub

    nickb2 - thanks for the info and diagram. I paid attention to install the nuts and such in the correct order on the first go 'round and double checked them each time I reinstalled the hub to make double sure. . . Unfortunately they're on correctly. I'll dig into it again and use a micrometer...

    1996 Bronco Front Wheel Hub

    Believe me, any help would be appreciated!! I called the vendor I got the spindle and bearings from (who I know to be very reputabale and accurate and so won't mention name, like you say don't want to cast +/- light. . . ) and after a lengthy phone discussion he had no ideas either. He did say...

    1996 Bronco Front Wheel Hub

    Experiencing issue with 1996 Bronco full-size front wheel hub - I had converted from factory auto hubs to Warn Manual Premium several years ago (made sure to get the full conversion set - hub body, lock nuts, etc. ) and had no issues from 2005 to current. Lately I had been having a little bit...

    96 Ford Bronco 5.8 Semi-High idle

    Thanks for all the input guys! Problem fixed - but to answer questions for general knowledge: CEL was not on, and unfortunately I didn't have a code reader that could read real time input to check sensor data. Perhaps with two older vehicles I should look into one or a breakout box. Thanks...

    96 Ford Bronco 5.8 Semi-High idle

    1996 Bronco, 5. 8, auto/E4OD, about 200k. Truck used to idle ~500-600 rpm. A few days ago the truck began idling at ~1000 rpm even after engine warmed up. The truck idles high while coasting, at 1000 rpm, and sometimes after higher revs only slows to ~1500 rpm without having a foot on the...
