Still trouble with my 2001 Ford Windstar after replacing spark plugs and wires. It always starts instantly though still running a little rough. Sometimes the power doesn't kick right in to climb

I would suggest you run a compression check on this engine and also have the coolant recovery tank tested for the presence of combustion gases with a gas analyzer, any gases would indicate a leaking head gasket. Any engine cylinder that is lower than 5% of the highest reading cylinder in pounds per square inch has a problem like a scored cylinder or leaking intake or exhaust valve seat.

We have a 2000 Windstar with about 145K miles that in the last 2000 miles has begun to misfire badly and ping under load. Hi octane gas calms most of the pinging, but does nothing for the misfire. No...

Some Ford engines are not equipped with knock sensors. Yours may be one of them. Located in the wiring loom, close to the ECM, is a "jumper" that when removed retards the timing 4 degrees. This should correct your pinging problem. as for the missfire try changing the plugs and wires .also check the egr valve. thanks

What is the wireing order for spark plugs in a 2000 ford windstar se. The front of vehicle has a short, medium, long wire. Where does each wire go in relation to the coil pack in rear of engine. Thank you!

The correct firing order diagram for that vehicle is not an easy task to come up with, but try this diagram and it should be the right firing order diagram for that vehicle. Let me know if this does not work out.

Firing order diagram

Here is the firing order diagram for that vehicle, and if the ignition wires are not crossed then one of the spark plugs might have been damaged while installing it and the spark plug gap closed on one of the spark plugs, or one of the ignition wires (spark plug wires) has been damaged, and if those wires are over 5 years old then you should replace them. I hope that this helps you to solve your problem.

Check engine light blinking Put new plugs and

a blinking MIL (malfunction indicator light) means the computer is sensing a serious fault in its feedback

usually it indicates that emission levels are 1.5x's the legal limit

your vehicle may still run ok but it is causing serious damage to your catalytic converter and if left untreated may result in other serious vehicle concerns

first thing you have to do is find out what code(s) are present and then begin diagnoses

is your vehicle running poorly?
any smoke from the tailpipe?
have you replaced the spark plug wires?
have you replaced the fuel filter?

keep us posted
