Emmission light on in Ford Windstar

I have 2001 Ford windstar with the emmission light on. The van runs fine. The only thing I can see wrong with it is after you remove the gas cap there is usually a small metal seal on the gas tank...it flips back when you fill up and flips into postion again when the nozzle is removed....the seal is stuck in an open position....how do I remedy that?!

I have a ford windstar which start but does not accelerate fully.


More infromation may be helpful. If your van runs fine at low speeds but will not run properly or shift correctly at speeds of 50 mph or better I would suspect a clogged cataletic converter. If this was helpful please leave good feedback if not please repost with more infromation

2001 Ford Windstar van seems to skip when you push


It may be due to plugs, fuel filter, fuel pump, or mass airflow sensor. Is your check engine light on?

ABS and brake on 2001 Ford Windstar come on randomly


Do you mean the van is actually braking like a Starsky and Hutch move or that the warning lights indicate that they are on? If its lights then you may be low on brake fluid. Maybe a module leak

My 2000 ford windstar emmissions light has been on since I got this van last october. Today I let it run while I went into a friends house. I came back out and when to leave and it was like the van was...


Two items to check, first would be a the fuel filter, second the electric fuel pump, I have had this exact problem on one of these in the past, it is also possible that catalytic converter could be stopped up. The best thing to do is get an autoparts store to retrieve your codes and that will help in diagnosing the problem, good luck!
