Hi All, Basically same problem as SteveDay51

lowered milage, intermittent check engine light then stalling as out of gas after an hour or 2 running on highway then come to exit ramp and wants to die sputter, took to local rv shop so they say but do not know where the connector is to hook up diagnostic tester.

this is a Holiday Rambler Endevor LE 32C
Ford Chassis
I have called Indiana but they said it was "clasified info " I also asked about the aluminum frame work of the MH because I need to install a rivet maybe thats whats "clasified"

anyone know both?

Sounds like a catalytic converter to me.

I had a similar problem on an older Ford 460 in a 1988 class C. It turned out to be a bad head gasket. I would be driving down the highway and it would suddenly stall. Usually wouldn't restart for several minutes, then run fine for several hours and stall again. After having the gasket replaced (and emptying my bank account at the time) it ran wonderfully.

I'd second the Cat, but it could be a couple other things.

First thing I would do is check your filters, air and fuel.

If that done, the conenctor should be in the engine comparment on the F3. Ford didn't start using OBDII till late 95, so it will be a goofy ford connector, like the EECIV or something. Unfortuneatly sometimes you don't get alot of good info out of those older computers.

If HR/Monaco isn't helping you, try a ford heavy truck garage, they might have abit more insight. Broadway Ford in Saint Louis, Mo does a lot of work on Ford heavy trucks, they might have a tech that knows.

If you do find the conenctor, most Advance Auto's or AutoZone's have a scanner that a counterman will come out and scan it for you, the service is free. Most likely the counterman will have to "Fool" the scanner by selecting a "Close" vehicle like an F350 with the same engine/Trans.
