1992 E150 Loss of power-PLEASE HELP!!!

I am posting this for my parents. They have a 1992 E150 van. They have been having problems with it for awhile now and their local mechanic cant figure it out. Anytime they try to drive it when it is hot outside it will lose power going down the road and die or not start at all. They said it isn't overheating. I'm lost on this one. Anyone have some suggestions? I appreciate any help!

Re: 1992 E350 Loss of power-PLEASE HELP!!!

my dad has a 96 E 150 van with a loss of power problem too and we found that the cat converter is partially blocked and i am in the process of locating a replacement right now.
i cant say your problem is the same but it might not hurt to check the backpressure of the exhaust.
the other things to check when you have problems with heat are the ignition module.
they are notorious for causing problems when the outside temp is high.
you would have to check and see how strong the spark is before you drive and then check it again when you are having problems and if you replace the module i recommend replacing the stator at the same time and make sure that dielectric grease is applied to the module.

i would rather push my Ford than drive your Chevy !
