Not your camshaft sensor, it would not even start. Your going to have to get it scaned, but I'm thinking it may be your EGR system.

If you are comfortable performing some basic checks prior to resorting to the Ford Dealer then try pulling a vacuum on the EGR valve to make sure the pintle moves freely in both directions. While you're at it, make sure all vacuum hoses and system components hold a vacuum. Inspect the EGR valve visually for coking and contamination. Check EGR solenoids and the position sensor for electrical continuity.

Good luck and hope this helps.

2001 ford windstar battery being drained and i dont know why


I had this problem. i thought it was a parasitic drain but...
check your charging system. with the van running, check the voltage output accross the battery terminals. if its less than 14.1 check the inline fuse for the alternator (close to the alternator) if ok, replace the voltage regulator inside the alternator.

if the charging system is putting out 14+ volts then you need to start pulling fuses while van is off while monitoring the current draw between the positive battery post and the positive terminal clamp watching for a current drop. keep in mind the windstar will drain alot of current while off for the first 2 mins er so, then it will drop again in about 15 mins... time delay shutdown on several systems :)

It's going to have to be looked at. But you can try unlocking a different door with the key. Hold it to the left (unlock position) for 2 or three seconds. Should shut off the alarm and allow you to start it.

2000 Ford windstar will not restart after shut off from running


Mine only flashes when I start the engine. Once I place it in drive it stops and operates normally. This includes up and down shiftsing. If I place the tranny uner a load when the light is flashing (it flashes for about 10 secinds then it will chatter.
Maybe its a clogged transmission filter? Obviously is a fluid pressure problem. I drove it 5000 miles with this problem and it seems to not affected the tranny. Some folks talk about the Neutral Start switch. with 185K and a rebuilt tranny at 120K I am not going to invest $3000 to replace it

it does sound like a fuel pump, i am not 100 percent on that ,
as annoying as it is, u might have to start eliminating possible causes. also try checking your fuel pump relay fuse etc. another possibility check your fuel lines could be a blockage. fingers crossed
