I have a 1996 For d Aerostar and it has been running ok for quite awhile.
Recently, it has started running like I am sitting in an Apache helicopter.
The engine idles pretty rough and sounds like an F150 with big pipes the
higher the RPM's get. It has started to lose power and has a rough time
getting up hills that usually weren't a problem before. I think it may have
been water that got into the gas tank, but I am no expert. Can anyone tell
me what this may be and if you know of some other symptoms I should check to
help pinpoint the problem, let me know. Thanks.
Take out the plugs and look at them. That should keep you busy
While they're out, do a compression check.
Could be a million things, fouled plug(s), clogged fuel injector(s), bad
plug wire(s), coil pack, etc. etc.
Is it the 3.0 or the 4.0?
