Question about 2000 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

Can't find where the red Plastic Tube, in Windstar 2000, fits.

I have a Ford Windstar 2000, 3.8L. After having reinstalled the head gasket, it was impossible to find the place where the red plastic tube, from the back-left intake manifold, fit.
Please let me know if you have an idea or if you know someone who could help me.

My heater on my 95 ford windstar blows cold air not hot what is it


Thermostat and change your radiator cap, if your adding antifreeze alot than it may be a blow head gasket. I was loosing antifreeze out my tail pipe, tried fiberlock http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/K-W-Products-32-oz-FiberLock-head-gasket-and-block-repair/_/N-255s?itemIdentifier=249495 and it worked. Make sure your upper and lower hoses are good and not squishy. I did the thermostat the radiator cap and hoese and I got my car working. I have 224,000. on my windstar and still going strong. And windstars are not know to live lone because of there head gaskets. Good luck.

I have a 1999 ford windstar it over heats


Has the radiator been checked for rust? bet it is red with rust right now from a leaking engine cylinder head gasket, very common in this van. Remove the radiator and have it professionally cleaned and replace the thermostat and flush the engine block and put a can of head gasket sealer in the system on refill with clean new coolant mixed 50/50 with low alkaline water like drinking water from the store..

I have a ford windstar 1998 that has steam comming out of it. Antifreeze is pouring out of the exaust system, is this a head gasket problem? and on average how much to fix this type of problem


Sounds like the exhaust side of your head gasket is blown! If you have a mechanically inclined friend, cost could be minimal! if not, could be very costly! To do it yourself, it can be done in half a day (about 4-6 hours)!

2001 ford windstar leaks antifreeze checked overflow container and found oil in it. Then check oil dip stick and no eater was found


Most likely you have a head gasket issue,very common on these engines. Head gaskets need to be changed,the water in the oil can cause engine damge by washing down the bearings.

More likely the head gasket--there is no coolant in the intake manifold. This is a big job. I did one recently and it took almost 2 days to replace both head gaskets.

Engine coolant mixing with oil in reserve tank. blowing white smoke out exhaust


The intake is leaking,if it is a plastic one,replace the whole intake,if it is metal,replace the gasket.

I need to drain the antifreeze from the (1998 Ford wIndstar 3.8) engine block so I can remove and replace the intake manifold gasket.


Not 100% sure but if you look up under exhaust manifold area, on block,is usually a common place. Simple hex head plug into block on most. Are you sure just pulling lower rad hose, and thermostat housing off won't get you where you need to be?
