Question about Ford Windstar
My 2002 Ford Windstar dies while driving. This started after we replaced the alternator. It doesn't matter how fast I am driving. Sometimes it happens every day, or can go as long as two weeks running perfectly. I buy name brand gas ( 87 as reccommended) for the last 2 months. Before I would occassionally buy a discount gas. I would so appreciate an answer!

The compressor is the same but it may have a different pulley and the plug may be indexed on the wrong side. If you have a set of snap ring pliers you can put your coil and pulley on that compressor or it may already be the same ones just make sure you put the plug where it is on your original compressor.

Unplug the alternator remove ground to motor.
Remove serpentine belt.
remove 2 bolts which hold alternator.
replace reverse of removal.
4 out of 10 difficulty.
Only special tool you will need is a wrench long enough to pull back the tensioner.
See the radiator support for location of tensioner and serpentine routing.
While its off, i would suggest replacing the belt too.

This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

while it is possible to perform that swap, the newer 2000+ transmissions will have updated internals and such.
so will it work............. yes.
is it optimal.................no.
