Hello Scotty, Im having some stalling and rough idling issues with my 97 Ford Aerostar (4.0 E-AWD)…
Im having some stalling and rough idling issues with my 97 Ford Aerostar (4.0 E-AWD)
It cranks fast with no problems, but after a minute or two of idling, it bogs down and shuts itself off sometimes. Ive replaced a number of parts that seemed logical to the issues but still no results. Here is a list of replaced parts.
Fuel pump and strainer (in doing so i removed the pulsator)
A worn out sparkplug (#2. I say worn out, it looked a little over worn...)
I have removed corrosion from most wire harnesses and added some electric grease to each. I did notice on the last round of parts that my FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR was unplugged at the little (electric?) hose that fits onto the side of it. i plugged that in but think that it being off for a long time could have caused an issue.
Here is my next round of parts im planning on buying.
Fuel pump Pulsator
Idle Air Control
Fuel pressure regulator
However my mechanical knowledge is not very broad- i jut fix whats wrong an/or about to be wrong, lol. i just wanted to thank you for all your input to the mechanical database and hope to hear back from you, You're awesome!
