Question about 1996 Ford Windstar
Ended up taking it to a ford dealer, and they said that the engine head gasket is leaking antifreeze on the #5 plug and that the right manifold needs to be replaced.(WE are not and have not lost any antifreze to our knowledge, the A/C works great and no green on the ground.) The other place I went to intially said nothing about the gasket and said we needed to replace both intaket manifodls....yes, took it back there one more time.
We have had it register the #5 plug before at like auto zone and would replace that upfront when we first got this 2nd hand, it would work for 5 months and then putt puut again. We are just driving it back and forth to work with the putt putt for now, decided if we want to do a motor...
Thank guy! KK
did not know how to put this on the sight, probably why I am not a mechanic also!! LOL if you can do that I don't mind
I had the head gaskets replaced.. the spark plugs replaced... had it at my mechanics for 6 months.... never did figure out why it was putt putting.... most people i have spoken with their mechanics have told them to put a piece of black tape over the light.... unfortunatly a couple of years of ignoring the light is when it just gets worse... like i said... best to just either sell the problem to someone else or change out the motor....
