We just got our 2000 Windstar LX back from having new torque converter put on. After driving it home and out to eat we noticed a lot of fluid under the front of the van. Was it not connected properly?

How many quarts of transmission fluid do I put in my 1998 Ford Windstar 3. O

1995-1998 - 12.25 qts.
NOTE: After a fluid / filter change with just the pan off - it would take only 4.5 qts. to fill it back up. (The rest remains in the transmission lines, gears, torque converter etc).

My 2000 ford windstar will not move when put in drive or reverse

run the fault codes and look for a torque converter solenoid/servo fault. Check for a TCM problem.

Hi, I have a 98 Windstar that recently began having transmission problems. When we first drive it starts out fine but once we've driven several miles it will get stuck in 2nd gear.

The switches inside need to be replaced they are hanging up do this now before you ruin the clutches it will go back to normal shifting and work fine change all pressure torque lockup and shift switches diy for about 125.00 with fluid filter cost and back to normal shifting and a happy van and crew make sure vans not running hot burning fluid otherwise will happen again high temp burned fluid damages switches ability to work

My 2000 ford windstar was working fine, then I stopped to put gas and when I tried to switch from park to drive it did not go in gear. no reverse, no drive, what would it be??

Hi hope I can help.
This is a very common way that a torque converter fails.
The transmission will need to be removed and a new torque converter installed.
Hope this helps

It quit accelerating. all the fluids are fine. it wont go in reverse, neutral, or drive. i give it alot of power and it won't move. could it be the linkage? i do not think my transmission is out

This is common problem between 99 and 03, the pump drive splines in the torque converter are stripped.You will probaly notice the transmission fluid is higher on the dip stick than it should be.This is because the torque converter which shares fluid and pressure from the transmission cannot stay primed because of no pump flow.You can confirm this by removing a cooler line at the transmission and cranking the car,If fluid shoots out the pump is working if not then you are gonna need a torque converter and or pump drive shaft.The transmission will need to be removed in order to do this and if the pump driveshaft is bad you will need to disassemble transmission somewhat to install a new one.Good luck.

I have a 1998 Ford Windstar 3.8 w/the AX4S-no forward gears

the transmission has been overheating. the fluid expands and comes out of the vent tube on top of trans. thats why it dont leak all the time. check for kinked cooler hoses or a plugged cooler inside radiator.

2000 Dodge Intrepid Transmission slow to engage

Only check the level when it has been driven and warm. And while it is still running. Now, for the slow engagement, It may be draining fluid back into the pan, from the torque converter. Let it idle a little while before trying to drive it. That will fill the torque converter back up, and will drive right away. Takes about 2 minutes of idle time to fill the torque converter. Now, drive it and then, while it is still running, in park, check the fluid level in the transmission. It very likely could be low and could also be the slow engagement cause.

Driving a 2003 Ford windstar. Went to pass and

Very common on this make and model trans, pump drive splines inside torque converter strip out and pump is not turning, Most times there is no damage to pump shaft. Remove trans and remove torque converter, inspect the splines at the very bottom of the hub hole. If stripped out inspected pump shaft splines which are the smaller center splines coming out of trans, if ok replace torque converter and re-install trans, change out fluid, clean any metal from magnet and replace filter, fill with fluid and verify proper operation.
