It could be a blocked fuel filter ,a bad idle solinoid , a week fuel pump, a bad throttle position sensor ,dirty air filter , If car is not running ruff before putting in gear . if running ruff all the time it could be bad plugs,injectors coils plug wires or any of the above. check for a vaccume leak it is a # 1 problem with windstars. if this was helpful please leave good feed back

Check your muffler for blockage. Does the engine heat up? A blocked muffler will allow an engine to run but acceleration is almost impossible.

SOURCE: 2001 ford windstar code P0340 cam shaft sensor malfunction

You most likely have a 3.8 liter motor. You need to have a obd-2 diagnostic performed. Pep boys, Autozone, Aamco etc. can do this. (Ford also, but costly). If cam sensor failing, code will be stored in e.c.m, and data stream will prove out. The cam sensor failure is common on fords and they are usally available aftermarket (save a few dollars over O.E.M.) . If there is another problem, the diagnostic will help determine. Windstars are also prone to fuel pump failures and ignition switch problems.

SOURCE: ABS and brake on 2001 Ford Windstar come on randomly

Do you mean the van is actually braking like a Starsky and Hutch move or that the warning lights indicate that they are on? If its lights then you may be low on brake fluid. Maybe a module leak

SOURCE: Truck just stops b- 2005 Ford F150 80,000 miles

I had the same issue i changed the fuel fillter it was a little dirty but not bad. Still had problem then i cleaned out the throtel it worked good for a while. Ended up replacing the throtel its about $250 if you do it yourself which is not hard to do. The problem is the electronic throtel control but you have to replace the whole thing not sold seperatly hope that helps. Been running great did that 15,000 miles ago.

2001 ford windstar shuts off while driving but starts back up only shuts off when accelerating


Any codes? Shuts off or bogs down, like not enough fuel? Wild guess bad Throttle position sensor or connections to it and or to the ECU. Corroded connections seem to play tricks on it. If you are sure the sensor is tight and in the right adjustment, check the connector. Make sure there is bright metal by scraping spade.

The transmission filter is stopped up. Change it and add some new fluid and "trans x" conditioner and hope for the beat. Otherwise you need a transmission.

I have found that Windstar sliding doors are subject to amnesia. If they are not opened and closed regularly, they "forget" what they are supposed to do. I make it a point to use my fob regularly to open and close the door (one in my case) to keep it focused on the job at hand

2001 FORD WINDSTAR stopped heating


Check top rad hose for heat. When enging has been running for 10-15 minutes, shut off engine and feel top rad hose. It should be very warm if not hot to the touch. If it is not hot, Change thermostat. It is located under housing that top rad hose mounts to on engine. You can get a eplacement at any auto parts store. Get a failsafe one. If it fails it does so in the off position only and will not cause overheating problems if it fails.
If rad hose is hot it is a problem with your heater, possibly plugged

Steady thumping every couple seconds in the venting system


On my 2000 Windstar, I had this same problem. I replaced the vent door motor and the problem went away. It is roughly $40 from O'Reilly. The motor is a white box located behind the radio. Remove the radio, then remove the plastic trim piece around the radio and climate control. From there, you will be able to remove 4 8mm screws from the white motor. Unplug the electrical connection and remove the motor. To put it back together, do the reverse of these steps using a new motor.
