I would check the tps first; it is an indication from your symptoms. Use an analog volt-ohm meter on the wiper and one and of the sensor, and turn it to watch for smooth change in either ohms...

I don't think it's possible to drop the pan without dropping the transmission, or the front crossmember, which would be much more involved.

First, you need to jock the engine around in order to...

I've done it on both my vans; a 2wd and a 4wd. I had to remove the engine mount nuts and lift the engine up enough for the oil pan to clear cross member. There is a baffle, and the pickup that you...

Did you try changing the fuel filter?

Other possibilities include the throttle position sensor. You can test it with an analog ohm or volt meter by hooking its leads to the wiper and one side of...

It's been 10 years since I pulled off the air box cover on my van, so memory is a little faded. But I recall pulling off or moving aside all the surrounding stuff, removing all the screws around the...

It's much easier to take the cover off after loosening the accumulator.

What's the best way to remove those rivets without damaging anything? Do you use a pin punch to push out the center pin of...

The air intake to the blower is through a "chimney" that fits to a hole in the cowl area. That area is covered by a plastic grill above the hood. It has small holes that small leaves can get...

Thanks Martin, but we're discussing the AC system in an Aerostar van with two separate evaporation units so it's a little different from the typical home AC that you seemed to have described.

In my case, the vacuum line going to the rear AC was also broken, so only the rear heater would run whenever I turned on the rear air. That line controlled the air door and the heater control valve.

No, I don't think you can rewire the simple DC blower motor to run faster. You can do that with some AC motors, depending on their design.

What you can do is make sure that the air doors are...

Yes, I chamfered the tubing inside and out. Maybe I filed them down too much, leaving the walls too thin.

I found "regular" steel brake tubing to split too easily if I try to flare them without annealing. But I also got some stainless tubing that were much more resilient, so I now try to get those...

Yes, I used a 1994 fender to replace one on my 1990 van. Hoods should be the same as well, though I've never tried replacing it.
