I took it to a place to get new brakes put on and now I have no heat at all just cold air

popping sounds when started. we removed intake and fixed a minor flaw with nol resolution to popping sound

what do I need to make sure gets done at the 135000 mile service?

Car makes loud knocking noise and smoking from back. Engine light and oil light on. Car died twice to work. So I put oil in and it still doing it. If it has anything to do with engine is their any way to fix it without having to remove the engine at all.

2000 windstar won't turn over. New Battery & starter. Checked all fuses and All good. When I try to start it in either park or nutral, I get power to all the interior functions and the starter solenoid energizes, but it won't turn over the engine or even try to. It was working fine the other night. The next morning it would not start. There was no change to the problem by installing a new battery or starter.

Code 171 and 174 come up what could it be?

after changing the battery I noticed holding the key 2-3 seconds longer to start the car. then it took 2-3 attempts then the car would start. then it took holding the key for about a min or more. headlights and interior lights come on as normal. jumped car and it started. checked the alternator and it had pull. though it must be the starter. tapped on starter and the car cranked. thought it has to be the starter then. changed the starter and it worked for half a day. back to holding the key longer. once it starts you can turn it off and back on with no problem. let it sit and back to holding the key. and sometimes it doesn't work.

WHAT WOULD CAUSE THIS. THE ENGINE LIGHT IS ON . WHAT WOULD IT BE . SENSOR OR ? PLEASE HELP

Also having intermittent starting problems after driving about 20 min . Shut car off and then wont start feels like a dead battery . Wait about 10 mins then it starts. Battery checks good also replaced alternator.

When we checked the dipstick for the oil there was bubbles of water on the dipstick. what could this be from and what repairs may be needed?

IT WONT TAKE GAS FAST BUT IT WILL IF I TRY VERY SLOW

Hi all...My 2000 Windstar, 3.8, 114,000 mile van's cooling fans have recently started to run on hi-speed right after start up, cold engine, and no A/C on. Sometimes they will run continuously, sometimes turn off after driving a while, but usually come back on again after that. No other problems,..just the annoying noise from the fans. thanks.

the right one will move but the left one will not
