    TSB 91-12-11 Converter Diagnosis
    Publication Date: JUNE 12, 1991

    LIGHT TRUCK: 1986-91 BRONCO, ECONOLINE, F-150-350 SERIES
    1988-91 F SUPER DUTY, F47

    ISSUE: Lack of power or a no start condition may be diagnosed as an exhaust restriction caused by a plugged catalytic converter. A plugged catalytic converter (internal deterioration) is usually caused by abnormal engine operation.

    ACTION: Diagnose the catalytic converter to confirm internal failure. Refer to the Catalyst and Exhaust System Diagnostic Section, in the Engine/Emissions Diagnostic Shop Manual and the following procedures for service details.

    SERVICE PROCEDURE
    1. Lack of proper HEGO operation may cause, or be the result of a rich or lean fuel condition, which could cause additional heat in the catalyst. Perform self test KOEO and KOER, service any codes.
    NOTE: IF TWO DIGIT CODES 41, 42, 85 OR THREE DIGIT CODES 171, 172, 173, 179, 181, 182, 183 AND 565 ARE RECIEVED, CHECK FOR PROPER HEGO GROUND.
    If the HEGO ground is good, the following areas may be at fault:
    * Ignition Coil
    * Distributor Cap
    * Distributor Rotor
    * Fouled Spark Plug
    * Spark Plug Wires
    * Air Filter
    * Stuck Open Injector
    * Fuel Contamination Engine OIL
    * Manifold Leaks Intake/Exhaust
    * Fuel Pressure
    * Poor Power Ground
    * Engine Not At Normal Operating Temperature
    * HEGO Sensor
    2. Spark timing that is retarded from specification may increase exhaust gas temperature and shorten catalyst life. Refer to the following procedure for service details.
    a. Check spark timing. Check base timing with spout disconnected. Set base timing to the specification on the vehicle emission decal.
    b. Check computed timing with spout connected.
    NOTE: COMPUTED TIMING IS EQUAL TO BASE TIMING PLUS 20 BTDC 3.
    3. Misfiring spark plugs may cause an unburned fuel air mixture to pass through the catalyst, which could cause higher than normal catalyst temperatures. Refer to the following procedure for service details. Check secondary ignition, hook the vehicle up to an engine analyzer and check for a secondary ignition misfire.
    NOTE: SERVICE ANY ITEM THAT IS NOT PERFORMING AT PROPER SPECIFICATIONS BEFORE CONTINUING.
    4. Fuel pressure that is too high may cause rich air fuel mixtures to pass through the catalyst which could cause higher than normal catalyst temperatures. Refer to the following procedure for service details.
    a. Check fuel pressure, install fuel pressure gauge, start and run the engine at idle. Fuel pressures between 28 and 34 PSI are typical (4.9L typically is 15 PSI higher).
    b. Disconnect the vacuum line going to the fuel pressure regulator. Fuel pressure typically jumps to 40 PSI 3 PSI (4.9L typically is 15 PSI higher). Visually inspect vacuum line for raw fuel.
    NOTE: FUEL PRESSURES ABOVE THESE VALUES SHOULD BE CORRECTED. HOWEVER, THIS MAY NOT BE THE CAUSE OF THE CONCERN. SERVICE AS NECESSARY.
    5. Throttle plates in the throttle body not returning to the proper closed position may cause excessive catalyst temperatures during downhill grades. Refer to the following procedure for service details. Visually inspect the throttle body and linkage for:
    * Binding or sticking throttle linkage.
    * Tight speed control linkage or cable.
    * Vacuum line interference.
    * Electrical harness interference.
    NOTE: AFTERMARKET GOVERNORS, THROTTLE LINKAGE AND CABLES ASSOCIATED WITH POWER TAKE-OFF UNITS, MAY ALSO INTERFERE WITH PROPER THROTTLE RETURN. SERVICE AS
    NECESSARY.
    6. It is extremely important that all systems related to the engine and emission systems operate properly.
    a. Visually inspect the engine compartment to make sure all vacuum hoses and spark plug wires are properly routed and securely connected.
    b. Inspect all wiring harnesses and connectors for insulation damage, burned, overheated, loose or broken conditions.
    c. Verify proper operation of the thermactor system. Thermactor systems that fail to dump thermactor air to the atmosphere properly or at the correct time can cause high catalyst temperatures.
    d. Visually inspect thermactor system for damaged or kinked hoses and perform a function test on following components: air control valve, check valve, silencer, filter and the air bypass solenoid.
    e. Verify proper operation of the engine cooling system thermostat.

    TSB 91-20-12 A/C Pressure Relief Leak
    Publication Date: OCTOBER 2, 1991

    LIGHT TRUCK: 1987-91 BRONCO, F-150-350 SERIES
    1988-91 F SUPER DUTY, F-47

    ISSUE: There may be a loss of A/C refrigerant through the A/C compressor high relief valve during idle and stop-and-go traffic conditions. Eventually, there may be a lack of cooling and oil stains may appear around the A/C compressor high pressure relief valve. The excessive discharge pressure is caused by the recirculation of higher temperature engine compartment air passing through the condenser during idle and stop-and-go traffic conditions. Normally, cooler ambient air passes through the condenser. Since the refrigerant in the condenser cannot be sufficiently cooled by this high temperature air, excessive head pressures are created causing refrigerant to be vented through the high pressure relief valve.

    ACTION: Replace the radiator lower air shield, located between the lower radiator support and the front bumper, with a new radiator lower air deflector (F1TZ-8327-B). This new air deflector is larger than the old air shield and will minimize the amount of hot air recirculation through the condenser. Refer to the 1991 Bronco, Econoline, F-Series, F-Super Duty Truck Shop Manual, Section 01-08, for service details.
    NOTE: TO REPLACE THE DEFLECTOR ON OLDER VEHICLES, IT WILL BE NECESSARY TO DRILL HOLES, FOLLOWING THE HOLE PATTERN IN THE NEW DEFLECTOR, BEFORE IT CAN BE ATTACHED.

    ISSUE: Some engine assemblies replaced under warranty have been found to be internally contaminated. This condition may be traceable to a previous repair involving removal of the valve cover(s), intake manifold and cylinder head(s). Scuffed pistons/bores, excessively worn crankshaft/camshaft bearings, low or no oil pressure, engine knocking and excessive oil consumption can result from improper engine gasket surface preparation.

    ACTION: Refer to the following TSB article for gasket sealing surface preparation procedures recommended by Ford Motor Company.

    SERVICE PROCEDURE
    1. Identify the composition of the component part before proceeding with a cleaning operation. Determine whether the part is cast iron, steel, aluminum or plastic. This can usually be distinguished by the inherent hardness and/or weight of the part.
    2. If the part is iron or steel, use a scraper with a high carbon blade, for best results. The key is to use a high carbon steel blade that is "razor-sharp." With a sharp blade, very little effort is required to peel off the old gasket.
    a. Lay the blade flat on the surface and push slowly and evenly. Don't allow the blade corners to tip in and mar the surface.
    b. Rounding off the blade corners with a small grinder will prevent scratching and gouging of the gasket surface.
    WARNING: USE EXTREME CARE TO KEEP HANDS AND FINGERS CLEAR OF THE BLADE.
    3. If the part is aluminum or plastic, a different scraper must be used. Carbon steel or any other steel edge will cut, mar, gouge or burr aluminum and plastic. A teflon or hard wooden scraper is recommended. First use a commercially-available spray solvent, allowing ample time for the solvent to act on the gasket. A suitable solvent should evaporate and leave no residue behind. Otherwise, the residue can cause a new leak to form.
    NOTE: UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE ANY GASKET SURFACES TO BE CLEANED AND PREPARED FOR SEALING BY USING A HAND GRINDER, ROTARY WIRE BRUSH, SANDING DISC OR PAD
    OR ANY OTHER POWER TOOL USING AN ABRASIVE SURFACE AS A CUTTING TOOL. THESE TOOLS HAVE BEEN FOUND TO PROMOTE ENTRY OF SANDING GRIT AND GASKET MATERIAL INTO ENGINE CAVITIES. THESE TOOLS CAN DAMAGE THE SURFACE FINISH AND POSSIBLY DISTORT THE ORIGINAL FLATNESS OF THE COMPONENT, LEADING TO FURTHER VACUUM, COMPRESSION AND/OR FLUID LEAKS.
    4. To prevent gasket material or other foreign matter from entering internal engine compartments, place CLEAN shop towels over exposed cavities. Use extreme care when removing the towels; remove them SLOWLY. Cloth towels can drop as much foreign material into the engine as they originally collected during cleaning operations.
    5. Another alternative is to use a portable shop vacuum. Moving a vacuum nozzle closely along with the scraper edge will help direct loosened gasket particles into the vacuum and away from the engine.
    6. The same care used in preparing the gasket surface should be practiced when assembling component parts such as the intake manifold and cylinder heads. Both are critical leak areas requiring extra care during assembly. Some things to consider are:
    a. Not all engines use the same sealants in the same places. Some parts use no sealant at all.
    b. Consult the service manual first. Don't assume that a gasket needs sealant. Some gaskets are designed with a pre-cast bead. Adding sealant to this design type will create a leak by shimming the two mating surfaces.
    c. Although some aftermarket gaskets look the same as the ones removed, use only Ford original equipment parts to ensure that the customer receives consistent quality and value.
    d. Avoid gasket locating products such as "tack'ems". These chemicals may leave residues in the engine that are incompatible with the oil, and may even cause damage to the catalytic converter.
    7. Practice CLEANLINESS when reinstalling components and gaskets.
    a. A small leak path can become a larger one as fluid erodes a gasket.
    b. Keep dirt, lint and unwanted chemicals off new gaskets.
    c. DO NOT assume that once dirt enters the engine that the oil filter will cleanse the oil to its original state and protect the engine from harmful abrasives. Particles such as silica (sand) are small enough to pass through even the best oil filters. The grinding effect of sand and dirt in oil on internal bearing or wear surfaces is comparable to the effect of valve compound for lapping-in valves.
    8. Torque sequence of components such as intake manifold and cylinder heads is extremely critical for proper sealing.
    a. Not only does sequencing make a more effective seal, it also protects the part from warpage or distortions caused by improper tightening. b. Aluminum is particularly susceptible to warpage from uneven tightening of fasteners.
    c. In some instances, fasteners used on aluminum components must be loosened in sequence. Consult the service Manual in EVERY instance for correct torque and/or de-torque values and sequences.
    9. After a repair job, it is a good practice to use a black light leak test to confirm that the repair was successful. For example, it would be easy to assume that the rear main crankshaft seal was leaking when in fact the intake manifold gasket allowed oil to run down the back of the engine. Consider all the facts which allow fluid to travel outside the engine (fan air blast, road air blast, gravity, or escaping/pressurized fluid spray.

    To sum-up, a successful leak repair depends on:
    * Accurate diagnosis of the leak using Ford-recommended test equipment and procedures.
    * Surface preparation and gasket installation using the proper cleaning tools.
    * Exercising care and cleanliness during assembly/disassembly of components.
    * Use of genuine Ford OEM parts.

    ISSUE: Many motorhome owners tow a vehicle when traveling. Improper techniques can "overload" the brake system of the tow vehicle or damage the drivetrain of the vehicle being towed.

    ACTION: Use the information and charts shown in this TSB article to properly match tow vehicle, towed vehicle and towing method.

    TOWING METHODS
    1. TRAILER - The vehicle is loaded onto and secured to a trailer and simply acts as "secured" cargo.
    2. DOLLY - The vehicle is "partially" loaded and partially towed. Either front or rear wheels are loaded and secured to a "towing dolly" and the other wheels roll on the road.
    3. TOW BAR - All of the vehicle wheels roll on the pavement. The towed vehicle's steering column must be unlocked so that it can track correctly behind the tow vehicle.

    WEIGHT RATINGS AND BRAKES
    * GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) - is the MAXIMUM allowable weight of the towing vehicle, passengers and cargo
    * GCWR (Gross Combined Weight Rating) - is the MAXIMUM allowable weight of the towing vehicle and the weight of the trailer or vehicle being towed, including all passengers and cargo
    * BRAKES - The motorhome brakes are designed and rated for the GVWR of that vehicle and will provide adequate braking for trailers and towing vehicles up to 680 kg (1500 lb)
    CAUTION: SEPARATE AUXILIARY BRAKES ARE REQUIRED ON TRAILERS OR TOWED VEHICLES OVER 680 KG (1500 LBS). DO NOT CONNECT A TRAILER'S, DOLLY'S OR OTHER TOWED VEHICLE'S BRAKE SYSTEM TO THE TOWING VEHICLE'S BRAKE SYSTEM.

    TOWED VEHICLES
    1. Trailer-towed - The vehicle should be loaded on the trailer in a manner to achieve a trailer tongue load of 10-15% of total trailer weight, not exceed the trailer or hitch ratings and be securely tied down.
    2. Dolly-towed - For front wheel drive vehicles, towing an automatic transaxle (ATX)-equipped vehicle behind another vehicle, such as a Recreational Vehicle (RV), requires that a front wheel dolly or trailer be used.
    NOTE: TEMPO ALL-WHEEL DRIVE MODELS MUST BE TRAILER-TOWED. DO NOT TOW THESE VEHICLES USING A TWO-WHEEL TOWING DOLLY.
    CAUTION: DO NOT TOW A VEHICLE WITH AN AUTOMATIC (ATX) TRANSAXLE WITH THE DRIVE WHEELS ON THE GROUND. DAMAGE TO THE TRANSAXLE MAY RESULT.
    3. Tow Bar-towed - Vehicles which can be successfully towed with a tow bar are listed in the following chart. Additional vehicle-specific information follows the chart.

    ALL VEHICLES
    NOTE: DO NOT TOW ANY VEHICLE AT A SPEED FASTER THAN 88 KM/H (55 MPH). THE MAXIMUM TOWING DISTANCE (WHEN TOWED CORRECTLY) IS UNLIMITED.
    WARNING: NEVER USE A TOW BAR THAT ATTACHES ONLY TO THE BUMPER.

    MTX-EQUIPPED VEHICLES
    Towing a manual transaxle (MTX)-equipped vehicle with the drive wheels on the ground is acceptable only if the vehicle is towed in a forward direction. The parking brake must be released and the gear shift lever must be in Neutral.
    * For Aspire, Festiva, Escort and Tracer, the ignition key must be in the ACC position, the battery must be disconnected to eliminate battery drain, and the steering wheel must be unlocked
    * For Capri, the ignition key must be in the OFF position and the steering wheel unlocked
    * Refer to the specific vehicle Owner Guide for complete details.
