This starting problem with my EA 3.9L MPFI Falcon is driving me bonkers. :confused:
I posted this YouTube video of what happens every time I start the engine from cold every cold or cool morning. Once warm the car runs and idles fine and on warm days the engine starts from cold and idles without...
This is my first post. So here is my question: I am failing to diagnose the problem with my Ford Falcon station wagon ED.
Here are the dot-points outlining the issues:
1) The car starts shaking like mad once I accelerate beyond 100 km/h and try to keep constant speed. If I keep...
So I've been offered a 1671B regrind cam, believe it's for an AU, I want to know if it will work in my ED XR6 Tickford head ? And if so what if anything do I need to make it work ?
Hoping an EF falcon whisperer can join the dots to solve this problem.
This EF wagon is dual fuel with a coil pack. For about 3 months it has been slowing or stalling after left hand turns, mostly on Gas but also petrol. These are usually recoverable, or if not, the car will eventually start...
Recently acquired XH V8 longreach.
Have noticed fuel pump humming away, quite audible in the cabin. I guess it is located quite close as the tank is just behind seats.which might make in noisier than one would expect.
Is this normal or a sign of impending doom?
Hi all, bought an XHll 98 model the other day, was going to use it as parts vehicle for my 97 XH but it seems like a better car than my original one even though its done 560000 ks! Anyway I noticed its got a trans dipstick which I thought odd. Its a Tradesman model the other one is long reach s...
I had some pretty bad injectors in my van... almost undrivable on petrol. Runs LPG 95% of the time.

Its a bit rough but I am looking forward to playing with it some.
It idles a little rough and starts slowly when hot. I know of a few thing that need dealing with but would like to plug a scanner in to see what I might be missing.
I'm looking for some info if anyone can help out.
I'd like to either put an AU motor in my ED or at least an AU head on the ED motor. Are either of these possible in the ways of straight Bolt up? Would also like to do a manual conversion on my '94 ED. What's the best way to move forward with...

Old guy New member.
Cant find difference between tickfor and non tickford as far as BEM and ECU goes.
I bought a 1995 EF Ford Ghia it had a starter button installed on the dash. It was ok for a while then I parked in my driveway and the next morning it wouldn’t start.
Yesterday I drove the car for over 100kms . It was a warm day so I expected the temperature gauge to reach the middle of the dial or just to the left of it.
Well, if the centre is 50% , the needle was at 20%. Seemed too low! Any ideas?
Iam doing some market research and would appreciate if people could complete this survey. No names or personal details will be stored. Thanks guys, and click on the link below to complete the survey https://goo.gl/forms/0AqPvcIWX0txG1q82

between a tickford 6 from ef to el .
I looked at an EF Wagon, they are a nice car for their age and price, and once moving certainly have some grunt.....thats once you can get it moving off the line which takes a bit of time though.
I am concerned (having never owned one before) about head and head gasket problems especially in hot...

Hi guys. My xh has no spark and doesn't start. The coil is 4 weeks old so i though I swap the efi module. I spend 4 hours just trying to get that screw out from the efi to remoce it and it is in such a bad spot it is impossible.
I loosened the bold at the back of the dizzy to rotate it but i just...

First post but have been searching for an answer to my problem. I have an XG ute that runs well on LPG but will not start or run on petrol.

Just reco'd the head on my sons EL fairmont, now I'm noticing when I go from park to reverse, or neutral to drive, before it engauges the gear the revs jump by 3 or 400rpms before the gear engauges, causing it to bang into gear,
Any ideas? thanks.
The engine idles rough and lacks power, blows black smoke and has poor fuel economy. The hose (circled) at the middle of the inlet manifold is hanging loose at the far end.
I have been suspecting MAP sensor issues, could that be the trouble?
Ok so my expansion tank still bubbles once get warm (no loss of coolant or oil, no discolour in coolant, no white smoke in exhaust so don't think is head gasket well hopefully) I have installed a new rad awhile ago and I have been trying to bleed it today hopefully remove air bubbles. Car drives...
After numerous vacuum and dye leak detector tests, a hairline crack in the air con compressor has been diagnosed for not holding gas charge.
Replacement compressors for AU falcons and fairlane 6 cylinders are plentiful and relatively cheap...but hard to get and expensive for the NC 8 cylinder....
just recently bought a XH ute 1999 and of course 4 weeks later it breaks down :-(

Hi just discovered the engine fan is hitting the auto cooling pipe that goes to the top of the radiator. Does anyone know if this is a common problem ? When its static there's only about 1mm clearance in 2 places between the pipe and fan. The pipe has marks on it though where the fan has been...
