SOURCE: My 2001 ford windstar lx van smells like coolant when i drive

Several things to check. Have the cooling system pressure checked. A quick and simple test. Puts system under pressure and helps to locate a leak. The coolant doesn't just go away, it's got to be leaking either externally or internally. Be sure that the radiator cap is checked too. It needs to maintain the proper pressure for the system
Sound like coolant is leaking on the exhaust system. This can result in the smell and you will not see a leak as it is evaporating when it hits the hot pipes.
Good Luck

2005 freestar transmission problems


This is probably the result of a belt / loose linkage. Linkage is the system of mechanical rods, cables, etc. that connect the gear shifter inside the car to the transmission itself. This is usually an inexpensive repair.

Are you sure that it is coolant. Puddles form under vehicles where the AC drain is under the car. Check that the puddle is actually coolant and not water from the ac evaporator core.

I smell gas but i'm not lossing any.


My first question is - is the check engine light on when you are driving ?
You could have a leaking injector which could be causing fuel to escape thru the exhaust. You could also have a leak in the vent system for the gas tank.
The need for coolant and oil if no leaks are visible usually means the engine is burning the fluids because of an internal engine leak or head gasket problem.

I have a 2005 frod freestar 3.9L , problem is when van is put into drive it studders then dies. Someone said it could be a leak in the air intake


It is under recall for problems with the torque converter in the transmission. Take it to your local Ford dealer and they will replace the torque converter and transmission fluid at no cost to you.

2005 Ford Freestar has started contantly beeping when in any gear except park. Sounds like it is coming from inside - in the back of the van. Any suggestions?


I have the same problem we got the van checked there is NOTHING wrong with the engine. it just randomly beeps its a set of 5 beeps about 4 times. its seems like it could be a check engine sound but no lights are on the dash.

My 2001 Ford Windstar van seems to be using alot of coolant daily


Possible coolant leak on hot engine parts causing it to evaporate as it leaks. That would definitely invade the cabin air. You would need to carefully check under the hood with the engine warmed up and running.

Also could be a headgasket failure between coolant channels and a combustion chamber. This latter problem sometimes shows itself as vapor at the tailpipe after there should be no more visible. You may also detect the odor of coolant there too.

Check to see if the PCM could be getting wet.
I had a this problem with mine. It turned out to be the PCM would get wet when it rained or the van was washed recently. If the rubber gasket between the plastic shrowd and the windsheild does not seal on the passinger side, you could be getting water on the plug to the PCM. Then when it dries out it will run fine.
Ford knows of this problem but will do nothing to fix it. They did put out a TSB on it and how to seal it up.
