My 2000 windstar sel threw the surpentine belt. It turns out the pully (when standing at the front of the van) located at the furthest towards the back is out of alignment. What component is this oully...


The 2000 ford windstar came with two engines, im not sure what engine you have so i will show you two diagrams and tell you what the part is for each, if you have the 3.0 engine which will say that on the valve covor then the pulley in the back would be the waterpump and the waterpump would need to be replaced but i suspect that you have the 3.8 engine because if the pulley was that loose to throw a belt then you would be leaking coolant . so the 3.8 engine has the belt tensioner in the back and this is what normally goes bad on these, you will need to replace the tensioner or just the pulley, most of the time its the tensioner which comes with a pulley, i will enclose a picture of the tensioner and see if this is the part you are talking about good luck hope this helps.johnjohn2_78.gifjohnjohn2_76.jpgjohnjohn2_79.gif

How to replace a waterpump on a 1999 chevy lumina?


The waterpump is located on passenger side of the car. Its location if you were standing looking from the passenger side at the engine is at the top right of the engine.There is a pully at the top of the engine that has 4 10mm headed bolts should be a non grooved pully.Loosen the bolts on that pully with the belt on once you loosen these bolts but do not remove them just yet.Using a 3/8 drive ratchet find the belt tensioner and release the belt making sure you remember the belt routing.Typically the the belt routing is printed on a plastic shroud that is just above the waterpump. Once you have removed the belt take out the 4 bolts that you previously loosened.Remove that pully now and the waterpump is right behind that. Sometimes the pully sticks a bit so you may need to put something behind it to gently dislodge it.There are 5 bolts on the waterpump the head of these bolts are 5/16 or 8mm remove the the five bolts using a quarter inch drive ratchet.Once this is done you may need to dislodge the pump.A dead blow hammer works well or a block of wood and a hammer could be used in a pinch.This should not require alot of force.Just a few taps should do it you are just breaking the gasket seal at this point.Now that the old pump is removed the old gasket needs to be removed from the waterpump housing. make sure all old gasket material is removed so the new one will seal properly.Take out the replacement pump and and line the new gasket on the waterpump once you have done this remove the gasket so you can adhere the gasket in place with a thin coat of rtv or weatherstrip adhesive.Now you ready to reverse the process to put it back on.Just make sure to line up the five bolt holes and your ready to go. Hope this helps.

2003 windstar 3.8 liter V6 Must crank 2 or 3 times before engine start when hot or cold. Dealer was talking about possible electronic choke defective. Where is the location of this part


There is no electronic choke on this vehicle. this engine control adds more fuel on cold starts for through injectors pulse width to quicker starting. you may have a camsynchronizer and sensor going bye bye. looks like a little distriburor on top of waterpump. must have special tools to synchronize so don't pull out. also your fuel pump may be getting weak. you can try cycling key a few time to build fuel pressure before starts,replace fuel filter also and make sure air filter is ok.

CHANGED WIRES TO PLUGS WANT VERFIY PROPER LOCATION TO COILS


have a look at the coil pack... it is numbered... now if it's like a 95 windstar the engineers had a sense of humour. it is 1 2 3 down one side then 4 6 5 down the other.... i didn't notice this when i changed my coil pack and couldn't figure out why it was missing.

Engine light on my 1999 windstar is blinking


the windstars are very bad for cracked ignition coils, to check you have to remove the coil, remove spark plug wires from coil, disconnect main harness from coil and remove the 3 7mm bolts that hold it in place, once it is out inspect it for cracks, if it is the coil expect to pay around $105 for a new one from your Ford dealer

1999 Ford WIndstar


Hi krisberg,

With the engine check light blinking, it would be a good idea to drive past the dealers and have them do a scan on the vehicle....You may be having a problem with the fuel pump....The pressure return valve or the throttle body.....Could also be a number of other defects which will cause the problem that you're having.....A scan will tell you what the problem is without having to guess

All the best Johngee10
