My radiator water keeps vanishing. When I looked under I do not see any leakage but radiator becomes dry. I truly do not understand. Please help. Thank you.

I just bought a 92 aerostar 3.0l and the engine light is coming on I put oil in it bc it was a quart low but light still coming on.Can a power steering problem enable the engine to come on?

Several days ago, the transmission was shifting "late", with RPM higher than normal, on the first several minutes of driving...the weather was over 100. The flid level is good,but today started "slipping". When this happened on my last two Aerostars, the trasmission required rebuilding soon thereafter. Is there something I can do to avoid another transmission-ectomy?

my check engine light comes on once in a while,but doesent stay on, it does not affect the driving ability, but gets anoying.. how do i find out whats wrong?

is there a recall on the transmission/waterpump/fuelpump/accelerator cable/park gear engagement/heat generation in wiring harness


if i start out in OD it goes into gear & slips...If I start in D..everything is fine except it won't shift into OD at hiway speed


My van still starts and attempts to run. How do I know for sure that when it over heats and then cools down and starts running again that it is the head gaskets?
May be there was another issue like needing motor oil because it was low. How do you know for sure?

dont have the diagnostic code, car runs but will stall if I dont keep my foot on the excelorator when stoped at a light or stop sign, and is using way to much gas.

My Aerostar shifts into reverse perfectly but when I try to shift it into a forward gear (1,2,D,OD) I have to go through N like all Auto Transmissions and it feels like it just stays in N when I shift into all forward gears, I have recently changed the Transmission Filter but that only made it worse. Any ideas, explanations, fixes?
