Hi, since the check engine light (CEL) is on you need to get the trouble codes read. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. If there isn't one nearby, any shop should be able to read it (for a charge) or you could buy your own code reader.

The code(s) you'll get will be in the format PXXXX like P0171 or similar. Once you have the codes you can look them up here to get a description - http://www.obd-codes.com/trouble_codes/

Or post the codes back here and we'll help you out. The next step is to get those codes though so you know exactly which areas of the engine to concentrate your diagnosis efforts on. Good luck!

My ford windstar 2003 hesitates during cold weather or wet conditions. But good during idle. Some time shows blinking engine light.


The flashing and rough running is to to a misfire or misfires cause by arcing due to moisture on ignition components. Eventually these misfires can lead to other problems such as damage catalytic converter. Start by identifying which cylinder(s) is/are misfiring. The arching can be reproduced with a spray bottle filled with soapy water. Spray the ignition components (wires, coils, distributor cap...)and look for the vehicle to idle rough. Replace any faulty component.

Yes it could be a vacuum leak at the intake manifold, could also be the MAF sensor (especially if you use a gauze/oil air filter).

IDELING PROBLEM HESITATION


If the check engine light is on, take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes that are stored there. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. I would suspect something like a faulty idle air control valve, but getting the codes will help narrow down the problem. Hope this helped and best wishes.

this engines have very coming problem with the moisture or wather acumulated on the left bank on the passenger side of engine, some time they leak coolant and goes straight to plug, or if some one steam cleaned your engine that will be the proble too,
if nothisng of this then try by replacing spark plugs and wires
