Along the line of cat converters, you should do a visual inspection of your oxygen sensors. they could be bad or causing it. They monitor your exhaust and then adjust the fuel mixture accordingly

I HAVE a2000 windstar lx with 3.8. just put new plugs&wires cyl #5 IS LOADED with fuel and the cat converter is now getting cherry red


You may as well change the #5 Injector to start with. I imagine you rechecked the spark on that cylinder as well. Could be a cracked sparkplug too. Check routing of #5 Injector wire. If improperly placed it could pickup a pulse to inject from other cylinders and then fire constantly.
Most likely you broke loose carbon in the cylinder head when the plug was removed and then it blew carbon back to the Injector head, blocking it open.

Missing and engine light goes on and off temp Gage


do not drive it with a flashing light. that means a severe missfire is detected and cat converter failure is likely.also the possibility of fire caused by the red hot exaust is a good possibility.i would check the common causes first, spark plugs, plug wires. have codes pulled or by a cheap code puller at somewere like shucks/autozone/harbor freight etc.that will narow it down to wich cylinder[s] are effected plus nowadays its just somethimg you have to have.

I have an 01 windstar with misfire on cyl 3 and 4


check your coil I have seen alot of the fords with the ohv 3.0 engines that the coils will have cracks in the plastic and jump fire ground out etc. if thats not it take some carb cleaner and spary around your intake and listen for changes in the running for a vacum leak. hope this helps.

You are mis fireing on cyl 1 and 3 if you replaced plugs and wires and coil this is going to be a fuel injector issue or valve issue. See if you can swap the injectors with known good cyl. and see if it changes. Or have a shop do a fuel injector service on it to see if it helps. It may be to late for the fuel injector service.

Check engine light


Had the same codes on my truck. cat converter was plugged. I was told to take the cat off and gut it, then put it back on and it would run fine, but that didn't work. You need a new cat. Might want to replace the o2 sensors before and after the cat also. Hope this helps.
