I have a 1989 ford E150 Econoline 302FI/With ATO, you can start it and it will set and idle in park all day long, just as soon as you start to give it any gas , it wants to miss,and cough,and snort. Then it dies, and the only way it will start again , is if you hold the gas pedal all the way to the floor, then it will start but it takes a few cranks, any Ideas?
I am having trouble with my van 1989 Ford E150 Econoline . When I first start up the van if I dont "floor" the gas and then take off it shuts off. It is also blowing black smoke, bucking , stalling.
When i get to a stop sign if i dont just blow the stop sign or hold the gas pedal all the way down and stay in neutral it shuts off.
Live in NY...had hard winter so I basically was just starting the van every
other day...was not driving it often. So from April first to July 2015 I did
not drive car but only once to put gas in it.
not sure if spark plugs need to be cleaned or replaced
not sure if i need new oil filter (checked oil it is clean)
not sure if i need new air filter
