Re: 1993 Ford E350 RV Power Loss

I started it up tonight for a few minutes. Now that I'm paying more attention, it was definitely running roughly at startup. Something is definitely going on with the engine, I'll get that cleared up before chasing the tranny.

Re: 1993 Ford E350 RV Power Loss

Got it back from the shop yesterday. Had them do a full tune-up (plugs, wires, cap, rotor) and tranny service (fluid and filter) and engine battery.

They're saying it's the transmission. After this work, the symptom is still there, just much less vibration and noise (so far).

Knowing that I'm getting a dim CEL makes the PCM suspect, so I'm going to replace that and the TPS. Parts are ordered, hoping they'll be here on Monday so I can get it done Monday night after work.

If that doesn't fix it, I'm probably going to try a Ford truck dealer for a second opinion before dropping $3K on a guess.

I'm not sure how handy you are, but that transmission should be very easy to replace. I'm pretty familiar with Ford trucks, the big block has its own bolt pattern that is different from the small blocks, but if you find a good used transmission from a junkyard or something, it's a weekend job to swap it if you are good at turning wrenches.

Also I would not take it to a Ford dealer. It's just a little too old and most if not all of the techs won't be any more familiar with it than a corner garage would be. They will just charge you a lot more money for parts and labor.

I'd take it to a good transmission shop. Ask around and see if someone can recommend a good shop. That transmission shouldn't cost more than $1000 or so to rebuild if you can remove and reinstall it yourself.
