    E150 is for delivering flowers and lighter duty work, they do get used a lot for heavier duty than they are rated for, that's why you will find a lot of them out there that are done at 100k miles

    E250 minimum, we only buy the 350

    I agree people try to tow a couple of four ton condensers up a hill and wonder why the tranny is done. Its not made for that.I like that flowers that was good.

    E-150 vans are girly girl vans, buy an E-350, you will be much happier. I have nothing less than an E-350 or E-450 in my parking lot!

    Just played with mine... No Not a "Tranny" the Transmission. At 40 to 50 as soon as I Stomp it, the tach starts to climb and right into a lower gear. Mine did not rev up, it dropped into a lower gear in less than a second.

    Check this out, and tell me what it is?



    Yea, this is a "Tranny"!
    Yes, I know I Shouldn't But I Just Can't Help Myself...

    Signature on hold. Trying to find a real Jefferson quote I like. Others here have bogus Jefferson quotes too.

    I talked to a transmission guy today and he said that the newer transmissions and even gas pedal work off of electronics, and it can take a little time for the computer to communicate to the transmission, but he would have to drive the vehicle to see if there was a problem.

    They have weird torque setting in their computers to compensate for weight and other factors. A mechanic who works on my company vans explained this to me because I thought my transmission was failing. Although unless the van is super heavy, it shouldn't mess with it.

    I also agree with someone a couple posts back, the F-350 is superior and it won't be a strain on the van as much as the E-150. My 150 was shot within 79,000 but my E-350 is at 183,000 and going strong.
