You can normally try to connect the wires from the motor to a jump pack/ battery to wind it up/down and that's the way to test the motor as well. if it's burnt, you can't do anything apart replacing it.

1996 ford windstar har to start when cold check engine lite is on


Take to autozone (or similar) and they will scan your van and print out the list of codes the computer has stored for free. Fix the error code(s) first and the hard starting will likely fix itself. Good luck.

2003 ford expedition repair rear left glass quarter window


Auto glass can be very difficult to try to fix. My step-dad used to be a mechanic, and he would mess things up every time he tried to fix anything related to the windows. Talking to somebody who specifically fixes windows will make life significantly easier. I would definitely suggest finding a glass repair company to help you out with these types of problems. http://glassunlimitedme.com/Window-Glass-Auto-Glass-Wells-ME.html

Just changed the oil pan gasket in my 1996 ford windstar and its still leaking oil and there is oil all over the passenger side of my van ,where else can this leak be?


You have a front and rear main seal, if either of these are leaking the oil will be coming from the center of the engine above the oil pan. There are 2 1 in front and 1 in back of the engine.
