2000 Windstar, 3.8L, suddenly started smoking. Pulled over and opened hood only to find that most of my oil had dumped out on the ground. I shut it off before and internal damage. Had it towed home to


Check your PCV valve (Positive Crankcase Ventilator). Normally located on a valve cover with a hose to the intake manifold. Remove it and shake it and if it does not have a rattling noise and is clogged, the valve is defective and not allowing pressure that builds up in the engine to be released through the intake manifold thereby forcing engine oil through any loose "exit" such as the dip stick tube or loose valve cover bolts, etc. This valve allows the engine to "breath" so to speak. No rattle...replace...not expensive as compared to what damage it can cause. Good luck...Ken

You may have a very gummy deposit on the glass in the 12:00 position that the wiper fluid is not removing. Run your hand over the glass area after it has been cleaned by the wiper. If your hand drags on the surface, try various solvents (alcohol, turpentine, paint thinner, TSP detergent, etc.) (keep it off of the paint!!!) to get it free of the sticky substance. Also, clean the wiper blade rubber with whatever works. The fact that the wiper seems to work correctly when the glass is wet, would seem to indicate that there is no problem with the motor, or the drive mechanism. It is also receiving sufficient power in that it blows the fuse when stalled. Hope this helps!
