I really need a how to instruction manual. or something for changing the ac compressor on a 2000 ford windstar 3.8 liter v6. any help??


My other half drives a 99 windstar think 2000 is the same though.

It was trial and error when I did mine. Through the top or Bottom, I figured out that the Alternator and all the supporting brakets have to be removed. The compressor is easily pulled after the alternator and brakets are out of the way.


best of luck to you

2000 Ford Winstar, 80000 miles on it just bought


Seeing as how no one ever changes trans fluid and all vehicles tend to have some trans issues,I would say your best bet is to check with a trans shop and if your comfortable there, have it towed. Unless it is something simple,expect about a $2000.00 repair bill.

I just replaced the battery and the alternator on my 99 ford windstar with new ones. I drove it for 2 miles and the battery light came on indicating that the battery is not charging. It has the 3.8 V6, any...


Your alternator is not putting out any power. To check the alternator, when the motor is running, check the voltage at the battery. If the voltage is not between 13.8 and 14.2 volts, the alternator is malfunctioning. Chances are that the alternator killed your last battery. Make sure that the belt is at the proper tension so that the alternator is producing the voltage neccessary to charge the battery.

My windstar was horrid for relays that needed to be replaced.... locate the relay(s) that control the power doors and replace them.
