The fastest way to tell is pop the hood. Look at the belt. The belt is always on the front of the engine. If the engine is facing the front of the car then it is rear wheel drive. If the engine is facing the side of the car then it is a front wheel drive. Hope this helps.

When trying to bleed the brakes on a 1998 ford windstar, i get pressure on the passenger front and driver rear, but not on the passenger rear or the driver front. Why?

Sounds like the safety valve is not centered in its fixture. What happens is the system has diagonal braking control which is used to prevent the complete loss of brake fluid. This shuts off the wheel that is losing pressure from complete fluid pressure loss One front wheel and one diagonally opposed rear wheel are used so that the car will not pull left or right when stopping.

The situation may clear if you attempt to bleed the brakes using the longest line first and progress to the shortest line last.

Is my 98 ford taurus rear wheel?

If you want to know if it is rear wheel drive, then I would say no. It is front wheel drive. One can tell by looking at the halfshafts that lead to the wheels in the front vs. the back wheel area.

Nope....front wheel drive and the rearend is a "floating" rearend....take a look at it from the back and you will see only a small square bar across it....from tire to tire. It basically floats.
