I'm asking for my son in California -
Q:my 2000 ford windstar makes a thumping noise when accelerating from full stop. seems to be coming from under the front of the car. noise goes away after accelerating past maybe 15 mph
I've changed brakes, calipers, brake booster, master cylinder, brake switch under master cylinder, bled all four lines... I still have no pressure, there are no leaks either.. FL, FR & RR shoot fluid while bleeding, LA drizzles
I think transmission fluid or power steering fluid comes out of it.
just nothing works when you turn the key on.
Changed plugs and wires now even worse and a knocking noise and engine light still flashing when try to accelerate runs fine in park found out intake manifold leaking changing gaskets now but intake full of black sludge and plenum smells of gas still checking her out but noticed the intake manifold control module is missing the linkage rods???? Can I get just the rods replaced instead of the 200 dollar module?? And can I reuse the isolator bolts on the intake??? Or should I buy new bolts??? the axle recall is over and cannot b replaced now really scared and van occasionally dies doing 60 mph on highway no nothing not even headlights but comes back on in a couple seconds I call it the nightmare that Ford created but won't take fault for this vehicle should never of been allowed to b sold to me should of been torched and crushed but it's my only vehicle and can't afford to replace it but I don't think it's worth my life or my child's Thanx ford for fucking us just glad mine hasn't caught on fire yet ridiculous u should b ashamed worst vehicle I ever owned
I cleaned 3 ground cables with no luck
i put a used instrument cluster in and van wont start
key removed headlights stay on until battery disconnected
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.
