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.

2000 ford windstar has a bad stumble when idling like it's missing accelerates fine when reaches cursing speed acks like it's missing also my cruise control stoped working

If your Windstar has the 3.8 liter engine, you are due for head gasket replacement. Just had mine done. The cruise control failure could be due to an open fuse or speed sensor failure.

Have a 2000 ford windstar heats up lost power

Too many possibilities to get into here. Get a good DIY mechanic to run through ; Engine condition, Cooling system, Drive belts, Compression test for head gasket trouble, Blocked rad, etc etc. You need experienced help. The only thing I advise, is, don't throw parts at it without knowing the problem. Get it properly diagnosed.

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..

The 2000 Ford Windstar that I have is using water. I fill it up with 2 containers of antifreeze and the next evening it needs some more added. I do not see any visible leaks in the driveway or when it is...

Engine coolant that is disappearing and leaving no visible trace is NOT a good thing. You most likely have a blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder head. (engine coolant going out the exhaust) Also check your oil to make sure the water is not getting into your crankcase. If it is, the oil will be over-full and will look like a chocolate milk-shake.

Coolant in # 1 cylnder\clean intake port of intake manifold

Check the lower intake gasket again the new gaskets that are being use made out of plastic with rubber port seals sometimes don't seal right I still used gasket sealer with the new plastic gasket even if it has rubber seals. MY 4.2 v6 had that problem but I went ahead and replaced the head gaskets also just to cover all the bases. And my F-150 has 210,000 miles on it. Make sure you tight the bolts I know it probably calls for something like 8 ft lbs which to me is not tight enough. Double it.
