Transmisson problems We have a 98 ford windstar van, that was running prefectly fine, till we parked it for 2 weeks. Now when you put into any gear (R,D,1,2) it acts likes it is in neutral, and will not move. We have changed the fuild and filter, but did not solve the problem. Help Please!!! Any ideas?? Is the transmisson shot?

Try checking the transmission fluid level first to see i it is full and then look at changing the filter and gasket on the transmission and if you still have you will need to take it to atransmission shop to have it loked at, but try the things I mentioned first okay.

2002 Windstar wont go into gear


These are common for the pump shaft splines stripping in the torque converter. The transmission will need to be removed to fix it. Before you condemn the trans, does the speedo move and the van doesn't or do you hear any grinding when you put it back into park? Or can you push the van in park (Broken CV shafts)?

95 ford windstar 3.8 v6 transmission, no 3rd gear


First thing is to check the fluid level in the transmission, most vehicles have to be running at engine operating temp either in P or N, check your owners manual. Assuming your fluid is where it should be, that vehicle you have sorry to tell you are notorious for transmission failures, by what you described looks like your going to have to replace the trany or rebuild it, either way its not a cheap fix. My advise if the van is in really good condition put a used trany in it and trade it in for something else. You can look anywhere online about customer/ owner feed backs on 88-98 windstar vans and how bad the transmissions are on those Ford didn't get smart till 99 or 00 when they redisgned the drive train. If you keep driving it the way it is the trany will completely fail leaving you on the side of the road somewhere.
