Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
I have a 2001 Ford Windstar with 96K miles on it. Several months ago my check engine light came on. My car exhibits "choking" almost a jerking motion as well as a "grinding" sound intermitently when I get above 2.5 RPM's. I have taken my car in to the shop twice and had diagnostics run only to be told nothing is wrong, that I need to use better fuel. I a using Cheveron w/ Techron and the problem persists. Choking getting worse and I'm burning through oil like crazy. Check engine light constantly on, has flashed 4x's, twice. A guy at Auto Zone mentioned it could be my coil pack. Please help I am tired of spending money and getting nowhere. Thanks!
Its your pcv and the hose running from your pcv to the top it should have a hissing sound if so follow it and move the hose around make sure hose aint pinched somewhere not allowing air flow.

Ask Autozone to give you a feee computer scan for codes & report back with codes.
Have you ever replaced your PCV valve? If it's blocked it will build pressure in your crankcase & force oil into combustion chamber. It is a cheap part, under $10. Replace it anyway. Air filter old & Dirty? Have Autozone look while running scan test. Have him show you where to put pVC valve when you buy it there.
