I just replaced intake gaskets on a expediation 5.4 and it is leaking in the left corner but I was in question before I reassembled there was a small little crack just inside it leaks just a drip but I have already ordered a new intake from NAPA but check with a salvage yard to see if they have a 3.8 motor when you take it off inspect it good before you install it on yours

Flashing SES, P0305, and P1145


A flashing SES light means that you are operating the vehicle under conditions that are DESTROYING your catalytic converters! This is not good.

Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0305 is defined by SAE J2012 as "Cylinder 5 Misfire Detected".

DTC P1145 is a "manufacturer-specific code" and is defined by Nissan as "Bank 2 Intake Valve Timing Control Position Sensor - High Or Low Voltage"

So, to put it simply, you need to find out WHY cylinder #5 is misfiring and get it fixed. You also need to diagnose the intake valve timing control position sensor circuits on bank 2 to (1) find out if the voltage is HIGHER or LOWER than specification (since the code itself is not specific about which it is). And (2) find out what is CAUSING the voltage to be out of specification and take the appropriate action correct it.

1999 windstart upper intake gasket problems maybe?


sounds like an intake leak or a vacuum leak , would start it and spray like carb cleaner or starting fluid on the top of the motor while it is cool not hot and see if you get a rise or fall in rpm,s if it does get a response chase down the vacuum leak, if not it is probally the intake gasket

99 Windstar has no power with OBD codes of P0303, 0305 & 0306


There's a number of other things it could be. Faulty O2 sensor(s), faulty fuel injector(s), failed catalytic converter, poor compression, etc. These articles ought to help - P0303 - P0305 - P0306
