and a cyl contrib test P0269 Cyl 3 and P0281 Cyl 7 Inj Circuit Bal fault

I am guessing this is the harness loose PLEASE tell me these cyl are on the drivers side

Its a van and the pass side looks like a nightmare to remove the VC

did you install dipstick on a VAN?

Looks impossible without pulling engine or removing exhaust manifold at the very least..


Oh God I am terrified

Dipstick tube nightmare

Well I got the tube in after about 8 hours of struggle.
I have been working on my own vehicles for 25 years and can assure you installing a dipstick tube in a E450 is the worst experience of my life.

Got it in the first time in about 3 hours then the dipstick itself was jammed due to a bad angle/slight kink in the tube.
Had to pull it out again and straighten it and finally got it in a second time and it is functional.

Anyway just thought I would tell anyone to AVOID breaking your dipstick tube especially on an Econoline at all costs.
