Somewhere under your hood, either on the underside of the hood, or on the plastic around the latch should be a sticker that looks like this one, but where the YFM part is, there will be smaller print with some ID information including 3.0L or 3.8L family of engines. that number will be your engine size. It is likely a 3.8L, the 3.0 was not a common engine in the windstars after '96.

5.7 gmc smoking when it idles

Depending on what year, if it's fuel injected, I would SUSPECT a bad coolant temperature SENSOR.

I ran across 3 bad ones within a day using my scan tool. All 3 the coolant sensor was telling the computer (ECM, PCM, etc) the coolant was -40°. Yup 40° BELOW ZERO.

It didn't matter how long the vehicles ran it was still ALLEGEDLY -40°. Changing the SENSOR on all 3 solved the problem of black smoke and an overly rich exhaust. Along with high fuel consumption.

At least that's one possibility and I'm NOT saying it's a for sure fix.

It would be best to have a scan tool (not just a code reader) hooked to the vehicle to actually see what the different sensors are doing BEFORE firing the "parts cannon" at it.

Diagnose, THEN replace.

By the way, ALL 3 vehicles were GMs and all 3 did NOT have any sort of "check engine" or "service engine soon" lit up.

Hope this helps.

My son has a 1999 Jeep Cherokee, and it beeps 3 times and it say;s preform service could you tell us why this does this he did not get no owers manual with this Jeep

Thats just a warning telling you something on the vehicle needs service, possibly time for an oil change ,, what you need to have him do is get the OBD codes read for the vehicle,, that will tell you exactly what service is being requested , check around in your town,, there are places that will read the codes for you for free. once you get the codes, you can post them here and someone will assist you in determining what the specific code means,, or just reply to this feed and I will help you

My vsc and 4 WD drive light stays on rav 4 2008

No one can tell you what is wrong with your vehicle

You have to have a dealer or repair shop access
the on board systems, as I would think you are aware
of & have many times had done on several vehicles
over the years

The Vehicle Stability Control & other items are
obviously not functioning correctly

When you say stays on ,all I can tell you is, that any
check lamp,Mil Lamp or anything that isn't normal,
is a system fault & should be checked for codes in
no more than 3 days,then diagnosed & repaired within
a week or stop using any vehicle,before possible
damage & expense occurs

You should have & read an owners manual

Absolutely no one has one & apparently refuse
to spend money on one

Check engine light was on, so i had it scanned .probable causes 1. low on antifreeze 2. bad thermostat 3. ect sensor 1. antifreeze was fine 2. heat is working so i dont think its a...

No code will tell you about coolant levels
or thermostat
In fact, codes do not tell you anything is wrong

They direct you to one of the vehicles systems,
that has a sensor out of range.

Then you have to component test,to find out
why the code was set

What code is there now?
Who is diagnosing the vehicle?

I think you missed the issue and changed the etc sensor

Our 300M has developed about 3 inches of play in the steering wheel. I now have to hold the wheel left of center to keep the car straight. Dave and Dawn Gray

this is extremely dangerous and needs to be sorted as soon as possible but i cannot tell you what is wrong without having vehicle on a lift so i would advise you take car to a garage and do not drive this vehicle as its big lump of stell and you might be alright but how about a pedestrian----Why isnt this vehicle subject to a yearly mechanical inspection like here in europe ?? I do feel its about time that america caught up with our europeon legistlation regarding the mechanical condition of vehicles over 3 yrs of age .

I do believe the 3 beeps are telling you that you are about to lock your doors. Additonally that should signal you that have your keys in hand before you locks your keys inside the car. It's just an aural warning reminder that your doors are about to be locked.

Forget an expensive purchase 500 miles away. Are you going there to check it out. Get the VIN # and run it at any GM Dealer and you will know more than it's current owner
