Question about 1996 Ford Windstar

96 ford windstar turns off when u give it gas at a stop light

When i drive my ford windstar, after driving for about 20 minutes it will die if i stop and a light and hit the gas peddle. it just chokes on itself.

Its almost like it needs constant gas running through the motor. but if u stop and then go, it will die.

You need to replace your crakshaft position sensor. These sensors will become fatigued over time. When the engine is at opperating temperature and you come to a stop for any lenght of time, the sensor will become too hot and the engine will stop. If you let the sensor cool down, the engine will run again. It is best to take this to a repair shop because the harmonic balancer may need to be removed in order to replace the sensor.

96 Ford Windstar Brake stopped working out of no where. I replaced the bulbs and yet the brake lights still won't work. Any ideas?


96. Could be the brake switch died. Do you have a high mount brake light in the back? If so, does it work? If it doesn't it is the brake switch. mounted by the brake pedal. If it does, then it is the turn signal switch that needs replaced.
