Ford Cars & Trucks - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


It Sounds like it is staying in the "cold start" routine. It also sounds like the diagnostic computer is not working right, because it must be rich and the O2 is not telling you a thing.

I would start by looking for a temperature sensor. You may have 2, with 1 being for the dash and the other being for the engine controls. You want to replace the temperature sensor for the Engine controls. This will help get it out of "cold start" routine.

Change your thermostat. The onboard computer does not monitor operating temperature.

Fuel pressure regulator. Have pressure checked.It could be forcing too much gas in each time an injector opens.

If you can not do this yourself, tow it in. At 2 mpg it may be cheaper to tow it than to drive any distance for repair. The Mechanics are going to need some gas left over in it to work on the engine.

Also turn on ignition and energize the fuel pressure, check for leaking fuel lines. Put on fuelcap locks if fuel drops when parked.

For this much of an extreme problem, I would like to know what you find wrong with it. I hope my solutions help.

As with any craft tools are what is needed. You will need o remove fuel or as much as you can. raise van and you 6 ton jack stands(not the flimsy ones at parts store). A good craftsman makes the job look easy. You can watch drywall finishing looks easy until you try it.

Remove the two straps band from tank,make sure you support van good,and try to remove as much gas as you can,undo bands,tank will drop down,remove retainer ring to by turning clock wise,pull pump up out of tank,replace and go in reverse to in stall.

If you don not remove fuel the tank may be heavy depending the amount in tank, and you will get a bath in gasoline.

Hi Tony, 1995 Ford 5.0L should have 1 crank sensor, Is it car or truck? If your vehicle has distributor it does not have crank sensor. Some 95"s came with TIFF that's Distributor mounted....If you don't have Dist. Sensor will be down on Timing cover, Bottom R. hand side of engine, Hope this helps, Good Luck.
