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. 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.

Had diagnostic done, results were R&R upper intake (Gaskets and isolators) clean EGR ports, replace spark plugs and spark plug wires. Cost 700.00.

Why would the Idol fluctuate ?


I have a Ford winstar 3.8L with 204k miles on it. The front pump seal was just replaced and when put back together it's grinding bad then spews transmission fluid from the transmission. The best guess is the transmission front pump went out. Now I do have a crate 2002 Ford Taurus 3.oL transmission will that work in the winstar?
