Hi, it is very easy to change but have go repair shop, first when u get sensor, they have to heat the sensor with gas light that use in welding, the neck right from where it tied the manifold and put small engine oil, then start losing it, and dont forget to remove the battery terminal when doing the work,when it lose then disconect the wire that is connected to the point where it is connected and fix the new one by tieting it firmly to the position and fix back the wire and battery head and start the car u will see that the check engine light is gone

The engine light is on in my 2001 ford winstar, what could the reason?


You can only answer that question once you retrieve the possible codes set when the MIL Light came on. You need a code reader or scanner put on the diagnostic connector under the dash, near your right knee.
Some auto parts store do that for free, but seldom know what the codes are. Don't let them sell you any parts, as codes don't indicate what is wrong or needs to be replaced.
Go to a good close by repair shop.not a dealer.

2000 windstar service light on


Your van has four o2 sensor's, the code should tell you which one is bad for exsample code should be like,
o2 sensor bank 1 sensor 1 or 2
o2 sensor bank 2 sensor 1 or 2

Also make sure you don't have a vacum leak.

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

1998 Ford Windstar, Service engine light stays on


The only way to tell why teh engine light is on is to have the engine codes read. Many part stores do it for free. Most shops charge $40 which is well worth it. That's what we charge. Usually it turns off if there is a faulty sensor, or circuit problem,

My ford windstar mpv 1994, the overdrive light is continously blinking. The vehicle moves sluggishly. When OBD2 coder reads:1) P0500 and 2)P0760.


P0500 is the trouble code for a problem wiht the vehicle speed sensor. This is a little unit that is on the transmission.
P0760 is the trouble code for transmission shift solenoid problem, This solenoid is IN the transmission.
Take the van to a transmission specialty shop or a repair facility you trust. Speed sensor can be replaced by the user if they are familiar but the shift solenoid should be done by a professional.

My check transmission light is on and my o/d light is flashing. I have a 2001 ford windstar sel with 155000 miles


Go to autozone for a free computer scan and get the fault codes first.

I think it may be a defective vehicle speed sensor (VSS) but the codes will tell us.
