Ford Aerostar



December, 29, 2006 AT 2:02 PM

I own a 1997 ford aerostar. A few nights ago I noticed that it is running VERY sluggish. It barely makes it up hills, and we have many of those in my city. I recently had my catalytic converter replaced and noticed a slight increase in power. But now that is gone. Van seems to run OK on level ground, but can't get the power to make it up hills. The other night I creeped home from work and after climbing a huge hill just before home, I checked under the van and noticed the converter was glowing red hot. It seems to idle fine, transmission fluid looks OK. Could this have something to do with the fuel filter or maybe the air filter? Please help me with any advice. Thanks to all

The converter is glowing because there is fuel in it you might be miss firing or have a bad regultor 02 sensor you need to have it checked because you have already ruined the new cat

I have found that most Aerostar owners avoid a tune up becasue of the cost and end up in this situation. When were the last times the plugs, cap, rotor and wires were replaced?
