Ford Cars & Trucks - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
I have a 95 Ford F350 with the 460 motor. It started running fine when cold but after it warms up it starts to run rough, lose power, and runs REAL rich. I'm only getting a little more than 2mpg.
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.

Fuel pump for 93 ford E250 van(5.8L engine}needs changing. not mech, but carpenter 15+ yr. Q: scale of 1 to 10,(10=experts only & 1=checking the oil), changing fuel pump rates? How hard is it, really?
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.

Does my 95 Ford 5.0 have 2 crank sensors
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.
