2001 ford windstar shuts off while driving but starts back up only shuts off when accelerating

Any codes? Shuts off or bogs down, like not enough fuel? Wild guess bad Throttle position sensor or connections to it and or to the ECU. Corroded connections seem to play tricks on it. If you are sure the sensor is tight and in the right adjustment, check the connector. Make sure there is bright metal by scraping spade.

Sevice engine light stays on my 97 ford escort. Code reads" throttle/pedal postion sensor" changed throttle sensor but did not help

Has anyone try to adjust the screw on the throttle,,that looks like a idle adjustment..If so that is preset at the factory,,and should never be adjusted...If the throttle plate angle is out of ajustment,,you may have to take to the dealer to get it back to factory specs...When ever that is moved,,it changes the voltage ,,

I need to find where the MAF wire plug harness is in my 2003 Ford Windstar to be able to clean the Mass Air Flow sensor. Where would I find that?

What? Why are you looking for wires?

Just unplug them,remove the sensor and
spray with CRC MAF Cleaner

Every MAF Sensor on any vehicle, has to be
in the ducting between the air filter housing
and the throttle body

Only one sensor and one set of wires on the
air intake ducts,your pal the MAF

2003 ford windtar dies while driving shifht into neutral turn off key then restarts. Have replaced mas sensor.

Have you considered the fuel pump going bad?
May want to put a gauge on the fuel rail and tape it to the windshield and go for a test drive.

You tested the MAF Sensor how? And replaced it why?

You tested to Throttle Position Sensor? Should it be going,you can get one at the Auto Parts Store. Don't need to spend hundreds at the dealer for the whole throttle body.
