Question about 1997 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

Parking cable>>starting Our 1998 Windstar 3.0L won't start unless we jiggle the parking gear cable. This happens mostly in the cold weather ( minus 0dg celcius). could it be moisture in the connection?? The engine light also comes on saying to check the engine soon.

Honda crv 04' key won't turn over & I'm stranded


if your battery isnt dead (try boosting it) then check to make sure the car is in park all the way and try again if nothing happens you need a new starter. alot of people dont put the shifter all the way back to park and that keeps it from starting.

Ford focus won't turn over ,was fine this morning parked up now won't start getting whinning sound from side of engine


If the temperature is low, then the engine might have struck up. You need to give heat and then try starting. If you still face the problem, then open the front and check if any wires have been cut off or else call or an mechanic to solve the problem,

Thanks

Twice my 21 yr old has told me he cannot start the 2002 Buick Regal. The first time I think the gear shift had not fully engaged in Park. This last time he said the steering wheel locked up, so he...


could be a faulty safety start switch, as far as the steering wheel locking up,, most the time thats just caused by turning off the key while the wheels are up against a parking curb or something thats putting pressure on the wheels, if the key won't turn Just pull it from side to side as you wiggle the key , I'd have the safety switch in the shifter checked, and maybe adjusted

Went to start my 1999 windstar for no reason it started making a knocking noies after it quit knocking it started smoking ran fine when I parked it what might of happened


You have described symtoms usually associated with two different engine problems. The knocking is generally a sign of a lower engine (Con rod or main) bearing failure. The smoking is generally a sign of oil in the upper cylindr/combustion chamber. This can be traced to rings and or valve problems in most cases. Unless of course a valve or valve spring has failed which may cause physical damage to the upper end. Any further attempt to start or run the engine at this point without a proper diagnosis could caus efurther damage. Did the eng stop running after the smoke was seen?

My ford windstar1998 gear won`t go into park even that the neddle say it in park, so my car won`t start.


Does the shifter feel loose and sloppy? Sometimes the bracket comes loose that the shift cable is attached to. If it isn't loose check the cable end at the trans under the brake booster.

Have a hard get the gear shift to go into reverse


if it will not shift out of park when the brake is pushed then in will be the shift interlock, but if it is still hard to move after out of park then it will be a shift cable
