98 ford windstar stalling when warm

Hi, hope you can help me. we have a 98 ford windstar. it was running good enough, then last week started running rough, and coughing alot. then started stalling. now it will start when cold, but as it warms it runs bad and then dies and will not start until it cools off again. i have been told fuel pump, but dont think so. i have also been told maybe a coil. any ideas?? thanks

    May not be related, but I had that problem with an Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais... It turned out to be a sensor on the transmission (sorry I can't remember what it was called)... But when I started and took off, it ran great, but once the motor warmed up it would die at red lights and such unless I pushed the brake and fed it some gas also...

    I know its a different model altogether, but hopefully that gives you an idea where to look.

P0171, p0174 too lean bank one and too lean bank two


Any time there is a code that says "too lean" then that means there is not enough fuel that is going into the cylinder to make it combust. This is very dangerous to the engine! There are a few things that cause this. (1) The fuel injectors are clogged and need to be cleaned or replaced. (2) the fuel pump is starting to die and needs to be replaced. The best thing to do is get fuel injection cleaner and put it in the gas tank when you fill up and see if that helps. If it still persists then replacing the injectors would be the best way to go next. I hope this gives you a better idea what to do!

Have a good one!

03 windstar cuts out when a/c is turned on


hi

2003 Ford Windstar-this may the idleing amount is too much so which may makes it to idle rough. that means too much of fuel going inside the engine.

Engine stalls- this is because the when the car is off and when AC is on the AC runs in battery. When you try starting the car the starter motor takes power from the battery. it doesnt have enough battery power t o starts thats why it stalls.

98 ford windstar has clicking noise under dash and won't start


The clicking noise is most likly the starter solinoid cycling in and out. This is due to low battery voltage. charge the battery, then have the battery and charging system tested. Some auto supply stores will do this for free for you in the hopes of selling parts

good luck

98 ford wind star running hot


Warm the engine up to operating temperature. Does the upper radiator hose get warm? If no, then cange the thermostat. If yes, then the thermostat is working fine. On the thermostat housing, there is a sensor. Some engines have 2 sensors. One goes to the computer and the other goes to the temp needle in the dash. Unplug the harness and put a jumper wire in the harness. Turn the key to on, and see if the temp needle goes up. Which ever harness causes the needle to go up, replace that sensor. Hope this helps.
