Ford Windstar QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Bought van used steering colum was tampered with no horn hard to shift. Was driving last night went to park had to reajust. Couldn't put it into reverse so had to put in nutral ...tried to put it into drive wouldn't go ...put it into Overdrive...can't put it into Park....therfore can't start it..
I cleaned 3 ground cables with no luck
Battery has full charge. With key in the on position all gauges work, radio works, windows work. When you turn the key to try and start it everything turns off and nothing happens. It does not even try to turn over. No clicking just silent. When you release the key and it goes back to the on position everything turns back on. The information panel on the dash states a fuel computer data error and a charging system data error. I do not know where to start looking. Any help would be appreciated.
2003 Ford Windsatr Van stalls periodically while stopped and restarts after key turned off and then on, (120.000 miles). Also when coasting while turning corners
Happens most/loudest when at idle under load when a/c is running. Up above idle, sound goes away. Relatively high frequency, pretty sure not rod knock, it's too fast for that. Alternator is 2 weeks old, idler pulley approx 6 months. Been in engine compartment, and under vehicle, but its one of those sounds that I just can't seem to pin down an exact location for. Seems to run fine, plenty of power, not missing, gauges all normal range. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
i put a used instrument cluster in and van wont start
i asked the other day..when i turned my car off at the gas station..when i turned it back on ..i couldn't get it out of park..had no brake lights or turn signals..chcked the bulbs they were fine..now i have no dash lights, the radio stopped working, the windows wont go down. My son and son in law changed out all the fuses today inside and out and they still don't work. They also took it to auto zone and had a test run on it and all the came up was a fuel gauge sensor..which to me makes absolutely no sense but what do i know..this is way beyond anything i can afford i think and no one seems to know..thanks
Just feels like you're in nuetrel
Arrow going crazy RPM move to fast
Just started when I got gas the other night when I started the van it started fine but I couldn't get it out of park and I had no brake lights or turn signals..changed out the fuses but today same thing happened. When I was trying to change fuses again..Everytime I try to replace #10..it sparks and blows the fuse out.
My Windstar will crank but not start so far I have checked the timing it's ask good I could really use some help anyone got any trouble shooting tips?
key removed headlights stay on until battery disconnected
Checked all the under dash doors in the air system all working
It's like no freon is going into the condenser core box yet the back air blows really cold air
Had freon checked ok
Seems like a valve must be not opening for the freon to enter that cooling box ?
could my belt tensioner make loud knocking noises coming from the engine
Is there a recall in subframes on a 2003 ford windstar???
i first started it. it backfired so i tried it again . it started but now it has a loud knocking noise coming from the engine. what could this be. its not the upper intake runner.
I have the door. The problem a/c and heater was coming out the defroster vents. and windstar are good for doors braking. Sub-model is GL. / 3.8L
The gauge needles will randomly just start moving all over, sometimes flopping off the register completely. Sometimes it's all of the gauges sometimes not. I don't have the problem in the winter, just when it warms up outside. In warm weather it is a constant problem...it's good for a while then goes off again. Sometimes when I start the car sometimes later while driving.
it goes into gear just find. just start.
the first time I tried to start it . it backfired. so I tried starting it again. it started but it has a loud knocking noise coming from the engine. like something broke in the engine. what could it be. ?
My dash keeps telling me my driver,back passenger and hatch are open. they are not open. Any advise would be cool. thank you.
We put Freon in it still hot air.
Had transmission rebuilt & after 2 weeks stopped while driving, would not go into drive or reverse. Took back to repair shop could only tell me water had some how got in
It smells, I am afraid to drive it. What do I do to have that go away
Where is my VSS located I took the wrong one out of the driver side.
firstname.lastname@example.org the head gaskets are leaking there's water in the oil. It runs great when it's cold but when it warms up it knocks.
