I have a 97 aerostar. A small piece of debris slipped past my air filter and lodged in the Air Bypass Valve so it wouldn't close all the way. I hissed and whistled at idle and when the valve open it stopped. It only takes a few minutes to remove it. Look on the accuator slide and make sure it moves freely. I also have a 97 aerostar, and I also have the humming problem that was described by the questioner. It does indeed stop humming once you press the gas pedal. I think the problem is caused by a bad vacuum booster behind the brake master cylinder. It is not a sound made by the engine. The booster may have a pierced membrane, and it makes a sound like you have pushed on the horn (but quieter). This is especially noticeable when you are stopped and the engine is idling. Revving the engine increases the vacuum in the booster, and stops the humming/farting sound! The brakes on mine still seem to work OK, but I guess to fix it, you need to replace the brake booster! Probably over $200 (isn't eveything!). However, if you lose your power brakes, it could mean you have to really floor the brake pedal to stop that aerostar!
Until you turn off the engine...
I believe Ford started using the 4.6 liter - SOHC - V8 engine in 1992 in their full size cars ( Crown Victoria etc. ) but didn't use it in the F-150 until 1997 and the Mustang until 1996
On the Ford 4.0 liter EFI , V6 engine ( Over Head Valve / pushrod design ) From what I have read , the camshaft position sensor is on top of the camshaft synchronizer , located on the top of the engine , near the centerline , near the rear of the engine . On my 1995 Ford EXPLORER apparently you can't see it until the upper intake manifold is removed
That engine has 2 of them and they both are underneith the INTAKE. You can't see or even get to them until you remove the intake.
Check the engine coolant... Is it full? yes coolant level is full
Yes, it uses an internal timing "CHAIN", not a belt. The timing chain should last until the engine needs to be rebuilt.
The 4.6 liter engine wasn't used in the Ford F-150 until the 1997 model year In the 1995 Ford F-150 there were ( 3 ) engines available The 4.9 liter ( 300 cubic inch ) straight six cylinder The 5.0 liter ( 302 cubic inch ) V8 and The 5.8 liter ( 351 cubic inch ) V8
Usually it's the lifters in the engine making that noise until they become fully pressurized with oil, then they stop ticking, like on the 3 liter caravans.
I also Got this kind of Engine but I've change my transmission to until 5th gear. How much will it consume Km/L.. Please help...
Start with 4.5 qts. Top off until full and make note of the amount.
That engine has 2 of them and there both underneith the intake manifold. You can not see are even get to them until you remove the intake.
I just keep adding until the dipstick shows that it is full. Or you could check your manual.
Remove #1 spark plug and rotate engine until piston comes to top of cylinder you can hold a pencil or similar object in plug hole until you feel piston
On the 4.0 L OHV engine ( used until the 2000 model of Ford Ranger ) the oil pressure sending unit is located on the drivers side of the engine below the power steering pump
Having a VIN number would help immensely, as there were MANY different engine options for this vehicle throughout the span of its production life, to include a 1.9 liter I4 (LR1), 2.0 liter I4 (LQ2), 2.2 liter I4 diesel (LQ7), 2.2 liter I4 (LN2 and L43), 2.5 liter I4 (L38 and LN8), 2.8 V6 (LR2 and LL2), and a 4.3 V6 (L35, LB4, LF6, LU3, and LG3).So, as you can see, we'll need more specifics in order to answer this question more precisely.As for the S10 I had, it originally had the 4.3 LB4 engine... until I did an engine swap and dropped a 350 into it.I had a 2.2 L in mine.
Neither, Camshaft is gear diven on Holden Six's until the arrival of Vl commodore[Nissan engine]
its good when it comes to fuel economy, but the power and tourqe isn't there until the higher rpms. overall a good engine for a daily commuter
The 5.0 liter / 302 cubic inch V8 wasn't offered until the 1996 model of the Ford Explorer , and with engine oil filter change it took ( 5 U.S. quarts ) A 1995 Ford Explorer , 4.0 liter EFI , V6 engine takes ( 5 U.S. quarts with engine oil filter change )
That engine has 2 knock sensers on it and there both underneith the intake manifold. You can't see are even get to them until you remove the intake.
Disable ignition and turn steering wheel stop to stop while cranking engine. Repeat until air bubbles and or noise is gone. Crank no more than 15 seconds at a time.
Fill the seven liter can. Pour water from the seven liter can into the five liter can, until it's full. The remainder water in the seven liter can is 2 liters. Repeat the above process 3 times.
Mazda did not use a V6 engine in the 1989 B-Series pick-up. Only two options would have been a 2.2 liter and 2.6 liter 4 cylinder. A V-6 engine was not available until 1994 when Ford began producing pick-ups for Mazda in the U.S.
You don't mention the engine size on your 1999 Ford Ranger , but if you have the 4.0 liter EFI , V6 engine : From what I have read , the camshaft position sensor is on the top of the engine , near the centerline , at the rear of the engine near the firewall ( apparently you can't see it until the upper intake manifold is removed )
That year and engine size has 2 of them and there both underneith the INTAKE MANIFOLD. You can not see are get to them until you remove the intake.
I'm not a mechanic / technician but from what I have read the cam position sensor on the Ford 4.0 liter EFI , V6 engine is on the top of the engine , near the centerline , near the firewall ( apparently you can't see it until the upper intake manifold is removed )
