Q: My 96 F-250's check engine light recently came on and stays on. My Autoxray scanner gave me trouble code p1409 EGR EVR control circuit fault.I replaced both the EVP valve position sensor and the EVR vaccum regulator solenoid. I cleared the code and the light was off for a minute or to, but it came back with the same trouble code. What else should I do?
Q: My 88 ford f250 with a fuel injected 4.9 engine gets 12 mpg and will not pass smog (in california).
I have checked just about everything. My question concerns ignition timing. The timing light I am using has a dial to adjust for advance.
My base timing is set with the spout connector
off and the timing mark at the notch (according
to my book thats 10 BTDC).
When i reconnect the spout the timing advances an additional 5 degrees for a total of 15 BTDC (at idle). at 2000 rpm my advance is 24 BTDC. this seems like too much advance but i cannot find any info as to whether this is correct or not.
If this is too much advance would i change the
ignition module or the computer to correct it?
A: I know that you probably like to fix your own vehicles, but this is one time that you should expend some funds and have your vehicle checked out on a professional computer diagnostic system. There are many reasons why your mileage is bad and it is hard to put a finger on just one. Your timing is definitely way off.
Q: The engine makes a pinging when accelerating. Why does that happen?
A: Either very poor quality fuel, or who ever set the timing last time did not un-plug the PIP connector first....
Must be done before setting the timing to take the computer out of the system to set base timing....
Q: what would cause the distibutor gear to keep breaking at the pin on the shaft after installed on a 460?
A: if the pin is breaking, the gear is binding, check the condition of the gear on the cam, and the distributer gear. if either are bad cam and gear must be replaced, also check for a bent distributer shaft. that will cause binding

Q: The Blower Motor makes a periodic high pitched sound.
1) Is there anyway to lubricate the bearings?
2) What are the procedures to test and or replace the blower motor?
3) How long would it take?
4) Do you have to evacuate the system to replace the blower?
A: The blower motor is not very difficult to change.... You can drill a small hole at the bearing end to drip some lightweight oil in....
I'm not certain about the evacuation procedure in your area.... Check your local experts for the answer...
