Under the front seat... passenger side i believe... no not inside the vehicle... under the van ...inside the frame rail... you need a special tool to remove the connectors on the fuel lines... you must also remove the pressure before you unhook those hoses... typically about 65 lbs if i remember right.

Fern, I believe you mean the Mass Air Flow sensor (MAF). It is normally found in the fresh air intake plastic/rubber hoses attached to the air filter box, on yours it may be in the part of air filter box. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Hard start when hot 98 ford windstar with 3.8

Try replacing the fuel filter also Has it had a tune up? they need to have the plugs replaced at 100,000 if the fuel filter does not work then the most probable cause is the fuel pump is losing pressure when hot. The pump warms up and the check valve fails to close all the way allowing a now fuel or fuel starvation.

2003 windstar 3.8 liter V6 Must crank 2 or 3 times before engine start when hot or cold. Dealer was talking about possible electronic choke defective. Where is the location of this part

There is no electronic choke on this vehicle. this engine control adds more fuel on cold starts for through injectors pulse width to quicker starting. you may have a camsynchronizer and sensor going bye bye. looks like a little distriburor on top of waterpump. must have special tools to synchronize so don't pull out. also your fuel pump may be getting weak. you can try cycling key a few time to build fuel pressure before starts,replace fuel filter also and make sure air filter is ok.
