There are issues with upper/lower intake gaskets on this engine. Also make sure you don't have a tube disconnected from the air intake between the air filter box and thottle body. If everything is connected, I would be renewing the upper/lower intake gaskets. This will cause lean codes to be set, and you may have noticed a ratty idle on cold start-up. Hope this helps. Good Luck and please leave rating. Thanks

do you mean it turns over but won't start? or do you mean engine won't turn at all like maybe its tied up? or sized up? if your not sure someone will have to get under the front with a socket and breaker bar on harmonic and see if engine will turn by hand.

Two things that it could be.
1 - Look under the hood, there is a wire coming out of the master cylinder, there was a problem with some of the windstars that leak brake fluid, run down the wires and drip on the neutral safety switch, which would cause the light to come on.
2 - This one solved my problem. It could be the transmission valve body that needs to be updated or changed out. There are many issues with these valve bodies. Slipping from 1-2, OD light blinking, shift 1-2-3-2, late down shift from 3-2. I had all of these.
If you do some work on cars, then you should be able to change out the valve body yourself, with a torque wrench. I picked one up on ebay for $180 with shipping both ways, and took my about 2 hours. My Windstar never drove so good.
-fyi, The OD solenoid is inside the transmission.

po303 is cylinder 3 misfire, po304 is cylinder 4 misfire, po305 is 5 cylinder misfire. this means it could be bad plugs, wires. or coils that are bad. change plugs and see how it is running.
