96 E350 stalls going in drive or reverse many things replaced
advanced searched for a resolution no results for my problem...
invested lots of money. have replaced many parts. been to ford dealer and a diesel shop for diagnostics... several faults given when scanned at dealer, NO faults given with the basic autoparts store scanner.
96 E350 powerstroke van will stall when you select from park to drive or reverse but if you give it a lot of throttle it wont stall just bogs down till you get the van moving, it also runs a little rough and randomly stalls while driving and parked idling. this happens most of the time but not always.
it always runs a little rough and has little power on the hwy. seams like anything over 50% throttle just bogs down motor.
engine light comes on right when you crank the engine.
van has about 320k miles on it.... and when i got it, it had a lower mileage tranny and what appears to be a reman motor with over 100k on it.
several shops said my tranny was bad, ford dealer said i have a bad torq converter and or tranny pump. so i just replaced the E4OD transmission with a fresh remanufactured tranny and the problem is still the same.
diesel shop said the ICP was bad so i replaced with a new one.. still not fixed
i replaced the glow plugs and glow plug relay because it wouldnt start in cold weather and installed new under valve cover wires and gaskets, completely removed engine wire harness and inspected for bad or burnt connections none found except for the EBP sensor has corroded and loose connector and the 2 prong connector hooking to the turbo has a broken latch. havent fixed these yet..... could this be it?
IDM was replaced with remanufactured unit as it had water in it, still not fixed.
swapped the PCM with another working unit from my other 96 powerstroke van still not fixed.
CPS was replaced before i got the van and looks new... maybe it went bad?
fuel filter was replaced..... still not fixed.
there arent many sensors left to replace......
could it be the MAP sensor? or the EBP sensor? TP sensor?
bad ground or fuseable link?
all this started right when i replaced the starter control relay on the core support. i pulled it back apart and rechecked and cleaned the connections as this relay is used as a junction block for several other items.
i really need this van going soon, i figure as many things that have been replaced so far doesnt warrant a new van.
thank you for your help.
