Check to make sure you did not knock off any vacuum lines and also make sure the transmission fluid is not low and if it smells cooked replace the fluid and the filter because the screen in the filter could be plugged and it is not getting fluid to the torque converter but check the fluid first

What would leak oil onto the starter


the oil leak could be a bad valve cover gasket needing replacement, a head gasket leaking oil, a leaking intake gasket and oil running down along the engine block and dripping. it could be an oil pressure switch that is leaking. it is near the starter while driving or engine running can spray oil onto the starter. unless the oil leak is very bad and has been leaking a long time onto the starter will not cause it to act like a dead battery even then not likely. have a starter draw test down to check condition of the starter.

I have oil in my water reservoir. What could cause this? I can't find an oil leak anywhere, but I know I have one. Any suggestions?


Most of the time oil in the cooling system is from a leaking head gasket or cracked cyl head. Usually head gaskets on 3.8 Ford engines.

u might check that the oil filter gasket did not slip when it was put on and have the oil running down over the pan . this car is not known to have oil leak problems.if i am thinking right it has a 3.4 liter and they are known (like there cousin the 3.1 )to leak anti-freeze from the intake gasket.

1998 Ford Windstar 3.8L ScanTool says that Bank 1 is lean


if your getting oil in the air filter area, you have a leaking intake gasket or a leaking head gasket, run a compression test on it,
if the compression is where it should be on all cylinders then its a leaking intake gasket!!!

The oil pressure sending unit screws into the engine block so you will need to look between the oil pan and the head.I suggest that you try tightening your oil filter first.

i am not a transmission expert but i would ck the kickdown cable on throttlebody. if disconnected or out of adjustment, it can do internal trans damage. seen it happen on several lincoln town cars around that year. if you suspect something wrong there, call a local tranny shop for quick advice, i'm sure he will know what youre talking about
