Ford Aerostar 1986-1997 Repair Guide



See Figure 1

When there is a problem starting or driving a vehicle, two of the most important checks involve the ignition and the fuel systems. The questions most mechanics attempt to answer first, "is there spark-" and "is there fuel-" will often lead to solving most basic problems. For ignition system diagnosis and testing, please refer to the information on engine electrical components and ignition systems found earlier in this guide. If the ignition system checks out (there is spark), then you must determine if the fuel system is operating properly (is there fuel-).
