Question about 2000 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

Bucking or missing while driving. Started 2 weeks ago.

Our Windstar started bucking or missing about 2 weeks ago. We thought it was water in gas. Added Heat and it stopped for a few days. Now it is doing it again. Do you have any idea what we are looking at?

First of all I would buy my gas at a different location. Sound like your getting water from somewhere. The gas we get today isn't what it used to be. If you still on the same tank of gas, i would use more heat, until you can put more fresh gas in it.....

I have a 2000 f150, that has not been started in about a year. Got it started and it started right up, but when I put it in gear it bucks like crazy, put it back in N or P and it smooths right out, no

I would ask first have you been able to drive it around the property or around the block? Does the trans shift OK? If so lets go back to the engine and vacuum leaks due to cracked hoses. Check and replace any hoses that are cracked or possibly missing or the ones that became mouse food over the last year, and don't neglect to follow hoses from engine compartment to under cab. Check for chewed wires also. This won't take you long. Please let me know what you find. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Did you check the oil level? After making sure that oil and water are at proper levels, and BATTERY is fully charged, start it again while checking the fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Also check and make sure vacuum line to fuel pressure regulator is good and hooked up.
If it doesn't start,try it with the MAF unhooked. Sometimes a bad MAF sensor will keep them from starting.

2000 Ford Taurus. Would fill up with gas when close to empty or light come on. Then a couple weeks ago,gas gauge was on 1/4 tank then went a little lower and engine started bucking. Then light came on. ...

change the fuel filter for one, this is telling you that your pick up in the tank is getting clogged, I would drop my tank, and drain it, flush it, and check the pump at that time

My 2000 Ford Windstar LX is randomly losing all power & shutting down for 2-5 seconds while driving. Everything stops working ( like theres no battery in the car ), then it comes back and starts right...

If you just had your battery replaced recently before that, Either your positive or negitive terminal is probably loose and needs tightened. It may get jarred around, and do that shutdown your 2-3 times, until something jars it to a better connecting position.

Number 6 cylinder misfiring on my 2001 windstar.

hi, first of all i would change the plug, it may look good but you can't tell by looking, if it is still the same after that change the lead with another one on the car and see if the miss is still on 6, if it is not the lead is faulty, if it still misses check the cap for cracks etc if all this fails have a compression test done to see if the compression is different on that cylinder if so then you have a mechanical problem, hope this helps
