That is most likely an accessory belt on either the power steering or alternator. Check them for wear, proper tension and replace them if you have to.

SOURCE: 1998 Ford Windstar AC compressor

They get more than warm, but not excessively hot that you can't touch it. This can be caused by a faulty condenser fan motor, dirty condenser coil even low freon, which is my guess along with a dirty condenser. Check these two issues and if it's not the problem your compressor may be getting ready to die. because of internal issues with the motor windings. Make sure the fan is running to speed, clean the condenser and see if the larger copper pipe to the compressor is ice cold and sweaty, if not you may need freon

I have a ford windstar 2000 and it has a loud scraeching sound when push on the gas or start up


It could be a worn belt, but spin all the pulleys by hand (with belt removed) and especially the alternator pulley, to see if you hear or feel any problems with free spinning pulleys. If they all seem good, try a new belt.

Its because your alternator is a 80 amp which is a lot of power drain ,some propriety belt sticky sprays will cure it for a while ,arrow chemicals used to make one 30 yrs ago in the Uk which was very good but aqs to sorting this one out then short of renewing the spring loaded tensioner their is not a lot you can other than to start engine and dont rev it let it idle for a minute and this will recharge the battery so stopping the strain on the belt and the screeching at the same time

it is likely one of the pullies failing. the most likely one is the tensioner pulley. only way to fix that is to replace it. also examine the front of your water pump. if there is any fluid "weeping" from the casting hole(s) at the front that would likely be your culprit

What is the problem with the dionest, code P0174 on my 1998 ford windstar and P0171


171-174 are lean codes.Check the PCV lines(Plastic tubes) At the ends you'll find rubber "elbows" to connect to the intake. I'll almost guarantee you one of them is ruptured and collapsed, this is a NOTORIOUS Ford fault
The cam sensor is where the distrib USED to be. Take the sensor off and see if the "flag" running around in the driver is intact...........75% of the time it won't be.........and they often squeak like a serpentine belt and can drive an inexperienced tech to drink finding the source of the noise

Squillinng when turning


Squeeking sound when turning wheel and sitting there . Sounds like you could have a bad belt you can spray it with belt dressing spray and if the noise goes away you should replace belt .
