Engine Performance problem
1992 Ford E-Series Van V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 50000 miles

My Ford E-350 engine has stoped running twice while going down the road at 60 MPH. Both times the weather was extremely hot. I have been told that the problem is the fuel pump or the ignition control module. The engine will restart but as soon as I put a load on it, it stalls again. After it cools down completley it runs great again. Anyone with Ford experience of a similar nature out there?

Fuel pump & EEC relays are known to cause intermittent problems. Normally the fuel pumps either work or they don't & in my experience, if the ignition module is bad it just quits - the engine would not re-start. Also the fuel filter should be replaced - it's supposed to last the life of the vehicle, but if it's never been replaced, now would be a good time.
