Van is misfiring
I can put my van in park. Park is reverse, Reverse is neutral, Neutral is drive and so forth. In order to start it it has to be in neutral because park has shifted so far out to the left that I can no longer lock gear in park. Its been going on for a while now but when it first started you could lightly shove the gear in park. Now I can do that at all.
doors want lock when you put it in gear
no pressure registers on the guage. My ac is on but the compressor does not kick on. What can be the problem. The can says that it might take half a can of the refridgerant before it kicks on, but I do not believe that it is accepting the coolant.
Replaced engine. Ran great. Now won't start and have to unhook battery to get lights etc off. Replaced ignition switch
I have spoken with mechanics and frankly tired of hearing there is nothing wrong with my van. It started 5 days after I bought. The seals in area for power steering went out and so they keep telling me thats why the lifts flash power steering has nothing to do with oilnd brakes
Often, when driving, I turn right (mostly) the wheel will turn but the tires wont. Even when going straight but turning on a slight curve in the road. The slipping is not every time but happens at least 5-10 times a day. Its not play, after a second it catches and the tires turn in the direction the wheel is being turned. Very seldom does it happen when turning left. My question is what parts are needed to fix this and aprox. the cost of the repair by a mechanic? Thank you for any helpful advise.
I have been trying to fix this problem now for a while and can't seem to figure it out. I have changed the coil pack and all plugs and wires. The miss hasn't changed or moved at all. When I am going down the road everything seems just fine. But when I stop I get a flashing CEL and have no power at all. Once it creeps past about 30-35mph the problems goes away again like nothing was ever wrong. Anyone have any ideas about what to try next. I'm tired of spending money on it but I love the van and don't want to get rid of it.
when I accelerate while driving, my transmission shifts real hard I was told it could be the speed sensor does anybody know any solutions could it be the speed sensor or am I going to have to replace my transmission.
I own a 2002 Ford Windstar. I need to replace the positive battery cable but I can't because the power cable from the alternator that plugs into the positive battery cable must have broke for the previous owner and he created a cable out of wires. So now I can't replace it because I can't find one site online that has the original alternator power cable as it came with the car. I've tried Ford OEM sites, Ebay and Amazon. No one has it. I'm filling out junk yard forms online now. Why doesn't anyone carry it???
Could you send an instructional picture.
