Possible, there is a metal hose that runs ontop of the intake. This hose is located just above the water neck and goes across intake to hoses on passenger side. This hose is an obsolete item. Junkyard is best result. I just found this out cause that's were my leak was. After several headaches, and finally breaking down and asking advice, that's what it was.

SOURCE: 1999 Ford Windstar 3.8 no heat

If you have a knock or clicking noise behind the radio, it is the blend motor. The blend door is spring loaded and the gears in the blend motor are "stripped". The door is spring loaded so that the door is closed to the heater core. About 2 hours to replace and a lot of bending and stretching. You don't have to remove the dash, but all of the trim, radio, and controls will need to come out.

SOURCE: My 2001 ford windstar's transmition is leaking.

This could be caused by multiple components failing. what i have seen most often on the windstar is the transmission pan gasket leaking, which is maybe a twenty dollar gasket between the pan and transmission, very simple to do, just requires removing between 10 and 20 bolts and replacing the gasket, then refilling the trans. i have also seen lines leaking going to the transmission cooler, which are more expensive and much more involved than the pan.

Water leaking from top of engine

Is it water or engine coolant leaking? Check the coolant level and see if its low. If the coolant level is low...the coolant system will need to be pressure tested and leak pinpointed. If you sure its water...I would look at the black windshield cowl. This cowl channel's away water and could be leaking on the motor. There is windshield washer hoses in the cowl that could be leaking. Good Luck

I have a 1998 ford windstar V6. and im having lots of white smoke pouring out tail pipe with lite water what can this be

It's possible that the white smoke you are seeing is from coolant entering the exhaust, however, I would think that the engine would also be running rough or be difficult to start should this be the case. I would start by checking the coolant level. If the level is very low then it's possible that you have a head gasket leaking which is allowing coolant to enter a cylinder and then be forced into the exhaust where it will turn into a thick white steamy/smoke that takes a while to dissipate after it exits the tailpipe. Whatever the source or cause of the smoke is, it's possible that it could cause some serious engine damage so you should have it checked out as soon as possible.

New batrery, no spark, no fuel. pulled front bank of plugs not sign of fuel or hear from spark. Just replaced a top coolant hose that was leaking. Engine turns over strong.

try swapping your PCM power relay with another relay in the relay box (engine compartment by the battery).
The PCM relay powers the fuel and ignition systems, as well as the PCM. Let me know if this doesn't work or you have more questions.

My 1999 ford windstar is only blowing cold air and no heat

possable problems:

1. coolant leak (level too low to fill heater core)
2. headgasket leak forcing the coolant out of the overflow.
3. stuck thermostat.
4. bad water pump. if the impelers are broken, coolant wont flow.
5. HVAC malfunction. system may think you selected cold or is unable to move diverter. maybe a fuse,solenoid or vaccum leak? (hvac controler uses vaccume controled soleniods)
6. airlock. if you have resently changed your coolant, you may need to repeatedly squeeze the heater core hose to help force out the air.

I have a 1999 ford windstar speedometer, odometer does not work, and I found a switch under the master cylinder that is leaking...want to know how to fix it?

do you have cruise control? if so, ford issued a recall on them. leaking master cylinder switch was causing fires even while parked and keys out. the missing speedo and odo is likely a fuse and/or the VSS at the back of the engine on top of the transmission. use a realtime DTC reader to confirm sensor output

The backfire may have caused a coolant leak into the engine.
Check for a blown headgasket- look for combustion bubbles in the coolant resevoir (or ask for a coolant system combustion gas check at a radiator specialist).
