RE: 97 e350 front brake rotors

The owners manual is too generic covers many models and options. There is an ABS light on the dash. There needs to be a book specific to the cutaway van.

97 e350 front brake rotors

My rotors after long braking downhills are really shaking the steering wheel by the time we get to the bottom. Sticking to the subject of the rotors, I'm looking at getting drilled and slotted, or another forum some suggest frozen rotors. These frozen are running $ 225 each or there about. At one point on recent trip I had a garage pull one wheel and check and everything looked OK. Ceramic pads still had a lot of life in them, and by the time wheel got pulled, everything had cooled down so nothing noticeable about the rotor. So who has done what with either the drilled or frozen rotors, and did they really make a difference? When shopping for rotors one of the questions asked is ABS front and or back. I know they are on the front, how to check on the back(drums on the back)?

RE: TRC 34730 BUZZING surge guard

Op here. Just saved $250. You have to remove the 6 screws holding the back on. Take a utility knife and cut around the edges to free up the sealant they used. I took the cover off the contractor and found a washer jamed between the contacts. One that had come off the screws that came loose. Put it back together and seems to be working fine now. JB welded the contactor to the case so that won't be coming loose again.

TRC 34730 BUZZING surge guard

Unit has been rattling something inside for some time. Plugged in on recent trip and a LOUD buzz sounded, unplugged and called TRC. Pretty much tough as out of any warranty. Pulled back plate off and found all 4 screws and washers had backed out of the square D contactor that holds it within the plastic housing. How would you safely check out the Contactor? The Square D is a 8910DPA32. Found some on the net with this number, but they have a V## following.

RE: Bike Rack receiver wiggle

Go to a home store and get a pack of plastic shims that are used in the installation of doors and windows. Drive the shim in the excess space in the receiver tube with a hammer and snap off the excess. Works great, simple to install and is cheap! No wrenches needed if you ever need to remove.

RE: No brake light or turn signal.

Op again. Did turn out to be the multifunction switch. Small local dealer had a switch that worked. Dealer markup was GREAT! But when on the road no choice. Honest took longer to calculate labor time than install. They charged .8 hrs, took .25 hrs from when he drove back till delivery. But again, what can you do. $21 for shop supplies!!!! Non used. $249 total

RE: No brake light or turn signal.

And that bothers the brake lights also?

No brake light or turn signal.

97 E350. As title, neither work. Book shows fuse #11 for brake light switch. Fuse good, but replaced anyway. Seems like all other lights work, tail lights work. Book uses term multifunction switch, fuse ok. LONG way from home, any ideas before I try to get to a Ford dealership?

RE: V10 spins, will not crank...part II

I think the starting in any position is my red gear shift indicator not lining up exactly over the PRND12. It now appears that it only ignites in the P&N range.

V10 spins, will not crank...part II

Ok, fixed my self inflicted problem. Yes, it was a pinched fuel hose that I had looked at at leat 4 times. With a fresh start this AM started over checking everything I had done. The Hellwig supplied nut to hold the L bracket is a piece of 9/32 x4x2 threaded steel plate. There are 3(2 metal,1 rubber) fuel hoses, a parking brake cable and 3 wiring harnesses in front of where this "nut" goes running thru the C channel frame. I had pinched the rubber fuel hose when tighten this plate. Will give Ford a nod for their hose choice. Hose poped back into shape when freed from the pinch. Will be watching this area closely for leaks. Put everything back that I had disconnected chasing the problem and took a short 5 mile loop. Thanks for all of the looks and comments.

RE: V 10 spins will not crank.

Op again. Would this condition throw a code that a reader would detect?

RE: V 10 spins will not crank.

The neutral safety switch is what I'm looking for. Can't find it on YouTube.

RE: V 10 spins will not crank.

The starter spins, the motor does cranks(over). Think I've got it down to the shifter, steering column Just discovered the steering wheel will not lock while in park, after lunch will tear into steering colum and find out about the lock. Been all over the install on the rear axel. No wires could have been pinched on the bolt up. As stated in original post, something real funky with the shifter allowing cranking(over) when placed in any shifter position. But thanks again for the replies. We were planing on heading out west this Saturday.

RE: V 10 spins will not crank.

Tank is at least 90% full. As mentioned in first post, emergency fuel shutoff has not tripped. Never said I disconnected fuel lines?

RE: V 10 spins will not crank.

OK, can hear fuel pump whirring when key is turned to first position, so think I can rule fuel flow is not the problem. Thinking more now has to do with transmission position. Tried jiggling wire harness that goes into side of xmission where shifter cable comes down. Might try jacking rear up to get off blocks later and see if maybe a slight roll of drive shaft it will get something back in sync if no other suggestions. If I do take off the blocks, cannot crawl back under without jacking up again, so not next option.

RE: V 10 spins will not crank.

No. The engine is cranking over.

V 10 spins will not crank.

1997..first time ever will not crank. Usually just touch key and fires right off. Now leading up.. But don't see how this could be the problem. Drove up on some blocks to gain access to install new Hellwig sway bar. Where the L bracket on drivers side attaches on the inside of the frame there are two fuel lines going forward. Was very carefull in not disturbing them to attach top bolt on bracket. Got finished and tried to crank to drive off the lifting blocks. Just spins. Fuel pump fuse OK, removed passenger side panel to check emergency fuel shutoff, OK. Just noticed something else as trying all things, but I can shift the gear shift lever to any position and the starter will spin. I thought would only start in Park?? Old Fords had a shifter problem that you had to lift up on the shift lever to get to crank. Something is not allowing some sensor to not allow to crank. Other than unplugging fuel filter and turning over to see if fuel flow, how can I test fuel pump. Any and all ideas appreciated.

Stickers on bus??

Just saw an article where Nelly was arrested. Tenn troopers stopped his bus( had to be a RV ). Because it didn't display a US Dept of Trans and International Fuel Tax Assoc sticker. What are these stickers? And talk about the nose of the camel getting under the tent. Drugs were found on board.
