Hi all- this is the closest place I can find to seek advice for a problem. Please let me know if there is a better place to post - thanks. I have a 1998 XLT which has the following problem: while driving, the engine light starts flickering on, then the engine starts losing power until it cuts out all together. This is obviously very dangerous as you lose power steering! It seems to get worse when the weather gets hotter and also happens more often when turning left! (Right-hand drive vehicle here in South Africa). I found an owner of a similar model here locally who also had a similar problem and he advised us to clean the crank angle sensor which we did. It got the vehicle starting again, but after a couple of days the problem returned. If you let the vehicle stand for a couple of minutes, it starts up again, goes for a few kms and then repeats the process. The local dealer is not really interested in helping me as the "vehicle is too old!" and we would need to carry the diagnostics computer around with us in the car to wait for when the problem might occur again. Please if someone could help to diagnose the problem I would much appreciate it. Thanks!
