Look for indicator lights in the dash. Common light is the SECURITY light. Tricky and touchy system that could cause truck not to start. If you see this light, go to this link for help.

Whole in oil pan how do i fix

Rather than buying new oil pan, if you drain oil, remove oil pan, take it to local welding shop they can most likely weld/patch it. They can not weld it if not taken off ( fire problem) but personally what I would do is search junk yards or you pull it and replace whole oil pan, might be more effective and cheaper in the long run.

Broken yoke can this be replaced or must you buy a new driveline

You could have a new yoke welded on. Then you would have to have the driveline balanced. It would probably be just as cost effective to purchase a new one.

2004 ford windstar not starting after some welding work when the battery was disconnected

first off why were you welding on this vehicle. Check your conections make sure they are tight on the battery if not there is your problem. if that dosnt fix it try jump starting it. if you are not getting any luck than you need to check your fueses probally the fuse that says ECU. sometimes these will pop when you are messing with the battery and there is a surge. Also if you were welding anywhere close to any wires check the wires to see if they were effected in any way. If you need futher help you can e-mail me at
