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
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.
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
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 MY 1995 turboed 543swap 3.0L
Plymouth Grand Voyager. Launched from 2grand and couldnt get traction
through first gear.
Will it Run? Episode 3: Things to do with Used Cars
Smashing up a bunch of cars in a field. Some sweet jumps and crashes near
the end. Watch for the General Lee Neon , the #43 Petty Intrepid Superbird,
and the Messershmidt 109 Mercury Topaz. A great way to spend the day, for
sure. Lots more smash-up derby racing to come! Music: Beethoven's 9th.
