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

also my car turns off after

constant codes po1071 and po174 changed pcv valve and line changed dpfe sensor and hoses changed egr and line cleaned maf sensor engine idle is smooth and good power no hesitation or stalling cold starts or quick and easy the thumping is not constant and tends to stop in gear. please help

The vehicle stopped moving forward engine just rares up when i hit the gas, but it will move in reverse! The van gave me no warnings or slippage to just make me consider it's the transmission! I do know that the front right axle was dripping a thick grease when i got my tires changed that what makes me ask about the axle! I had to drive my vehicle backwards home because it would not move move move forward!

i was driving , noticed my belt squeaking this morning when i started my van , then while i was driving around 60 mph it started jerking did this a few times back to back then i slowed down to about 45 mph and it did it again , when i sped up it did it a few more times then did not do it again all the way to work .... anyone else have this issue , or know what this is ??

No diagnostic codes.....It was working fine. Was making a small road trip, stopped at a gas station and started it back up when I noticed neither the odometer or speedometer were working.

need to get to power window control

99 Ford Windstar.Trans has 40 thousand miles on it. Recently the overdrive light blinks when i start it. The check engine light is on and no code has popped up to signal the problem.
Well now it want go into part,the gear shift is lose. I have to start it in neutral,and connot park on a hill and i have to use my emergency break to make sure it doesnt move.

I just need some info on what the problem is or could be,cause everyone i talk to where i live says well...its a ford for ya..I dont have time to hear thta,i need to get this problem fixed so i can pass my inspection,thanks for your time.

loud roaring/grinding sounds like its coming from the bearing thats on the transmission that the cv axle slides through(NOT THE WHEEL HUB)and what is that bearing called.

How do I fix this?

I don't know if I'm calling it by its correct name.I think my intake is leaking around the seals where the IMRC linkage hooks up to the intake manifold.If I can where can I find the seals they don't come in the gasket kit.Thats what I have been told.

so can i adjust the pull cables to make it shut all the way
