Having problems with your 1991 Ford F150 ?

My 1991 Ford f-150 Lariat 5.0 has a starting problem. After it has been driven for a few minutes and then I shut it off, it won't start back up until several hours later after it has cooled down. Then it's as if there was no problem. (That is until I drive for a while then shut it off and immediately try to start it back up again.) What gives?

It sounds like you might have a bad pick up coil, control module or the EEC relay. When it won't start, I'd check to see if you are getting spark. Some parts stores such as Auto Zone can test the control module.

I have a 1997 Ford Thunderbird. Upon turning the ignition key the cooling fan turns on and the car will not start. There is nothing you can do to make the car start until the cooling fan turns off which takes about 5-7 minutes. Once the fan shuts off, the car will run and drive for as long and as far as you like. Once you shut it off and go turn it back on, the cooling fan turns back on and will take 1-2 minutes before the car will start, once the cooling fan again shuts off. It also seems

My 2002 Avalon has a problem with the AC/Heater. Initially it will blow warm air, but after a period of time, it begins to blow only cool air. After shutting off the AC for a long period of time, it may or may not start heating properly when I turn it back on. Since this is an intermittant problem, the dealership has been no help.
