I have a 2003 Ford Windstar with 65k miles and the trans went out with no warning. It drove fine


That is perfectly normal for that vehicle

That issue has been their for years ,going
back to previous model whatever that was called

Not many van type vehicles have transaxles that last
or make 100,000 miles

The history on the ford taurus is about 65,000
& that is a half decent transaxle & that goes back
25 years

1999 plymouth voyager . Automatic trans wont ingage


I had the same problem, it seemed like if the van did not warm up for 10-15 minutes the tranny would not engage. I bought Lucas Transmission Fix ( I think thats the name) and I have not had an issue for 2 months now.

Driving a 2003 Ford windstar. Went to pass and


Very common on this make and model trans, pump drive splines inside torque converter strip out and pump is not turning, Most times there is no damage to pump shaft. Remove trans and remove torque converter, inspect the splines at the very bottom of the hub hole. If stripped out inspected pump shaft splines which are the smaller center splines coming out of trans, if ok replace torque converter and re-install trans, change out fluid, clean any metal from magnet and replace filter, fill with fluid and verify proper operation.

2002 Windstar wont go into gear


These are common for the pump shaft splines stripping in the torque converter. The transmission will need to be removed to fix it. Before you condemn the trans, does the speedo move and the van doesn't or do you hear any grinding when you put it back into park? Or can you push the van in park (Broken CV shafts)?

Ford windstar van, 2003


I had a small plastic piece replaced in the transmission and it solved the problem(2007). My car was still under warranty, so it only cost me about $100.00. The actual cost was closer to $900.00 because of the labor involved. I used the Ford Dealer in Schulenburg, Texas. They would know exactly what you are talking about, if you ask them.

Sorry to say i had the same problem. the spline between the engine and the trans sheared. I complained to Ford customer service and they were able to help with the cost but it still cost about 1500
