V8 Aerostar ( 5.0 HO )

Ford should have made a V8 Aerostar. I got 5 mpg better than the 2.8L V6 5-spd, it sounds better, and its more fun to drive (power). Sitting 1 ½ inches lower with large swaybars made it handle like a car. I've had A LOT of fun with this van, now it's time for a change. If you ever get a chance to be part of the Hot Rod Power Tour I highly recommend it. It doesnt matter if you do the long haul or just one venue, you wont regret it or forget it!!!

My 93 Ford Aerostar Starts Up After A 7 Year Sleep
Starting it to take it with me when my house gets sold once the water damage is repaired. As I was trying to rock it out of the ground it because it sunk in over the years I did a small burnout with it in the dirt. By the way, doing a burnout with the door open like that. Bad idea, as you can see that I smoked my own ass out. lol This van has served me well. My family took me and my brother on road trips with it and then I took it on my own road trips when I was using it everyday. I parked it in my backyard by my storage unit in 2007 and it hasn't ran or moved since until 1-15-2014. The reason why I parked it was because the overdrive goes on and off until it reaches 70 mph. That and I have to add a quart of oil to the engine before reaching 3,000 miles on an oil change. But it survived my mother over heating it in it's early life before I owned it. It has 271,000 miles on it and I didn't think that it was going to start after sitting for so long with seven year old gas in the tank. But you can see the look on my face in the video that I was impressed that it did. Just by putting a battery in it and getting the starter to loosen up and finally turn the engine over. The reason why I broke the passenger side window is because the door was stuck shut and I was trying to get it open. Why did I park it instead of getting rid of it? Well original I was saving it to take it to Dave's Farm and finish what ever life it had left in it over there. But now I have a new idea. I'm going to take it to a Demolition Derby and have fun with it before junking it. It had a good life and run and now we party.





GM 4L60-E Transmission Re-Assembly (Rebuild) - Transmission Repair
On this video we go through the re assembly of a 4L60E Transmission. I tried to make this video shorter for you so I skipped the bushing installation and installing the bolts on the valve body. But you can go to the teardown video for reference on where each bolt goes, since they're different sizes. I will make a follow up video on bushing installation.

It was sold in both passenger van and cargo van configurations in two body lengths with both rear wheel drive and all wheel drive configurations. The Aerostar was sold only under the Ford brand; the first minivan sold by the Lincoln-Mercury division was the 1993 Mercury Villager. Production was ended after the 1997 model year after its replacement by the Windstar in the 1995 model year; both product lines were sold from 1995-1997. The role of the Aerostar cargo van was left unfilled until the 2010 introduction of the Transit Connect. The aerodynamic styling (.37 coefficient of drag) resembled the Ford Taurus introduced alongside it for 1986. An early commercial ad campaign compared the side profile of the Aerostar to that of the NASA Space Shuttle.[2] For much of its later life, the Aerostar would be marketed as part of Ford's light-truck lineup. For 1992, the Aerostar received minor design changes on the exterior to improve its aerodynamics. Although no sheetmetal was changed, the Aerostar now had an updated front end. To live up to the "aero" part of its name, the sealed-beam headlamps were replaced by replaceable-bulb composite units. The front turn signal lenses changed from all-amber to mostly clear. The grille insert was changed yet again, moving the Ford logo from the center to the top third of the grille. This was done to match the similarly redesigned Econoline and the then-new Explorer. The Aerostar's distinctive A-pillar windows were blacked out further to look slightly smaller. On XLT wagons, two-tone paint was an option; instead of the Eddie Bauer tan, silver was the typical accent color. On vans with two-tone paint, bumpers were now painted completely body-color; gray bumpers were still fitted to single-color Aerostars. 1992 also marked the introduction of plastic wheel covers. Other changes were made as Ford introduced new safety features to the Aerostar. The interior received a major redesign as Ford added a driver airbag as standard equipment; 3-point seatbelts on all outboard seats were also added. With the addition of the airbag, Ford took the opportunity to make major changes to the dashboard. The design and layout of the controls was changed to improve ergonomics, while the gauge panel, climate controls, and other minor controls (wipers, headlights) were replaced with parts common to other Ford vehicles. The gear selector for the automatic transmission moved from the floor to the steering column; a floor console with cup holders and a coin holder took its place. In Aerostars with analog instruments, a digital odometer was added. The placement of the radio controls stayed the same, but the faceplate was updated from the mid-1980s design. As with the 1986-1991 model, the Aerostar was offered in a cargo van and three different trim levels for the 7-passenger minivan. The XL, XLT, and Eddie Bauer were carried over. An exception is 1997, the final year; all versions except the XLT and the cargo van were discontinued. The standard engine for second-generation Aerostars is the 3.0L Vulcan V6 with the option of the 4.0L Cologne V6. All-wheel drive was continued as an option through the end of production I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor)

Torque Converters Explained -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ In this video I cover the purpose and operation of the turbine, stator, impeller, and torque converter clutch. I hope the explanation and practical give you some insight into how these parts work to not only transfer power from the engine to the transmission, but also how it drives the transmission pump and doubles the torque output of the engine when you take off from a dead stop. I've wanted to make this video for some time. In fact I've had the fans sitting in the back of the shop for almost a year. Now that I have the Automatic Transmission Dissection video under my belt I thought I would add a torque converter dissection into the mix. I hope you enjoy this video and that it gets you a better understanding of torque converter operation. Especially since I killed my air compressor cutting this one in half. Link to compressor repair video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Zz9SKSHxFg Yes this is indeed 'take 2' of this video. I changed a few things to make the information more accurate.

Ford Aerostar Actuator Rod Repair
Shows how to remove a steering wheel and replace an actuator rod on a 1996 Ford Aerostar AWD XLT. This is an intense repair and it is important to have all required tools before starting otherwise you can easily get stuck and require a tow truck and a mechanic to complete the repair process. If your vehicle won't turn off (turned on, but now turning the key is doing nothing) and you have a Ford (I can't say all Ford owners will be able to use this advice) then pull the ignition switch out (first thing shown on the video is the ignition switch hanging right below the air bag power connector) and pull that metal pin sticking up towards you. This will turn off your vehicle.

This is a little project my Dad and I cobbled together as a way to find a use for a spare 318 we had, and a the rolling chassis of a 92' Aerostar after it's stock V6 bit the dust. Unless I'm mistaken, it's the only Mopar-powered Ford minivan in the world. We've taken to calling it the "Aeropar"
