This engine dos not use a MAP sensor it uses a MAF sensor, the MAF is located in the fexiable rubber air intake hose from the air cleaner to the engine. see photo.

Location of map sensor on 2003 windstar

Fern, I believe you mean the Mass Air Flow sensor (MAF). It is normally found in the fresh air intake plastic/rubber hoses attached to the air filter box, on yours it may be in the part of air filter box. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Where map sensor located

there is no MAP for fueling the ECU uses MAF for air flow.
there is a MAP for EGR only. called a different name. do to that fact.
nice guess,
why not post symptoms.????????????????
this engine fuels mostly off the MAF.
ture air flow.
need maf test page got it.
G16b engine, USA car.

all ways, the scan tool way is BEST, no scan tool , no JOY.

Where is the map sensor k

double posted, and there is not one.
NO, and NO.
lets do this 1 more time.
no symptoms even hinted at , how can we help like that>???
example, EGR is failing, ok EGR-MAP bad or dirty. or 10 ways, ask.
example2 weak engine power, ok MAF is bad. or 50 reason ask.

easy huh?

Where is the MAP sensor located on a 95 olds aurora?

mass airflow sensor(MAF), is located in the airway between the throttle body and the air filter of an engine.
i suggest you to clean the sensor from all dirt to make the sensor accurate air flow readings.

1995 chrysler new yorker starts fine and idles fine. When I put in gear and take off it bogs down and stalls. Could this be a fuel pressure regulator.

More likely the MAP sensor. A new sensor is $65, so I recommend you test it to see if it's bad. Test procedures are pasted below. Please let me know if it passes the tests or if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

OPERATIONThe PCM supplies 5 volts to the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor. The MAP sensor converts what it reads as the amount of intake manifold pressure into a return signal. The PCM monitors the MAP sensor output voltage. As vacuum increases in the intake manifold, the MAP sensor voltage decreases proportionately. Also, as vacuum decreases, the MAP sensor voltage increases proportionately.
During engine cranking, before the engine starts running, the PCM determines atmospheric air pressure from the MAP sensor voltage. While the engine operates, the PCM determines the intake manifold pressure from the MAP sensor voltage.
Based on MAP sensor voltage and inputs from other sensors, the PCM adjusts spark advance and the air/fuel mixture.

Fig. Fig. 2: Manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor connector terminal pin locations-1993-95 models

Before testing any electrical component, inspect the wiring and connectors for damage. Also wiggle the connectors to ensure a that they are firmly engaged. When testing the sensor, use a high input impedance digital volt-ohmmeter. Insert the tester leads through the back of the connector. Do not disconnect the electrical harness.

  1. Inspect the vacuum hose connections at the sensor and throttle body. Repair or replace the hoses, if any hoses are cracking or vacuum is leaking.

For the following step, do not unplug the sensor connector-it must stay plugged in.
  1. Make sure that the sensor wiring connector is fully inserted into the sensor (loose connections can create trouble codes). Check the MAP sensor output voltage by inserting the negative lead of a voltmeter into the back of terminal 2 and the positive test leads through the back of the harness connector terminal 3 (as marked on the sensor body). Refer to the accompanying wiring illustration. With the ignition switch in the ON position and the engine OFF , the output voltage should be 4-5 volts.
  2. Start the engine and allow to idle at normal operating temperature. The output voltage should drop to 1.5-2.1 volts.
  3. Test the PCM terminal 36 (1993-95 models), and terminal 1 (1996-97 models) for the same voltage described above to verify the wire harness condition. Repair the wiring harness if the voltage is not the same.
  4. Test the MAP sensor supply voltage at the sensor connection terminal 2 and 1 with the ignition ON . The voltage should be 5 volts. Check the supply voltage at terminal 61 of the PCM. This should also be 5 volts.
  5. Using an ohmmeter, test the MAP sensor ground circuit at the sensor connection terminal 1 and at the PCM terminal 43 (1993-95 models), terminal 4 (1996-97 models). Repair the wire harness for an open circuit if infinite resistance is detected.


Fig. Fig. 6: On the 3.5L engine, the MAP sensor is threaded into the left side of the intake manifold plenum

The MAP sensor is located in the rear of the intake manifold plenum on the 3.3L engine. On the 3.5L engine, the MAP sensor is threaded into the left side of the intake manifold plenum.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Unplug the electrical connector from the sensor.
  3. Remove the MAP sensor mounting screws.
  4. Remove the sensor from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Install the MAP sensor into its position and secure in place with the mounting screws. Tighten the screws to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm), then rotate it to a horizontal position.
  2. Plug the electrical connector back into the sensor. Make certain that the connector is clean and snug fitting.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.

Where is the vss located on a 95 ford windstar. The speedometer went ouit and its shifting crazy.

The vehicle speed sensor is located on transaxle in behind the engine.
Tricky to get at and not an easy replacement.
While it is possible the sensor is bad, the more common issue with your Windstar is the speedometer itself.
You should have it properly diagnosed before replacing parts.
If the speedometer is the defect you will need to replace the instrument panel as an assembly.
Using parts from a recycler will often result with another bad speedometer as it is a very common problem.
Some aftermarket auto supply may be able to get you a rebuilt unit.
if not you may have to get it from Ford.

O2 sensors on 1998 ford windstar

1998 Ford Truck Windstar 3.8L SFI 6cyl, there are 4 oxygen sensors on the Windstars They are divided into 2 banks of 2. Bank 1 is the for the rear 3 cylinders of the engine - Bank 2 is for the front 3 cylinders. Bank 1 / Sensor 1 (upstream) is located just below, in the pipe, the exhaust manifold on the back of the engine.

REMOVE TIP: you may have to bend part of the transmission heat shield out of the way - be sure to put it back when done.
Bank 1 Sensor 2 (downstream) is located just past the drivers side catalytic converter.
Bank 2 Sensor 1 (upstream) is located just below the exhaust manifold, in the pipe, at the front of the van - access is from the top.
Bank 2 Sensor 2 (downstream) sensor is located just past the passenger side catalytic converter.

NOTES: * Use lots of penetrating oil - allow to soak - to make removal easier and avoid damaging the exhaust pipe

Hope this help; TY for using Fixya (remember rated and comment this).

Where is the speed sensor located?

There are three transmissions available in different year Windstars.95-00 had an AX4S model,depending on engine,or possibly an AX4N model.From 01-03,the 4F50N,just a later version of the AX4N was introduced.There are many variations of speed sensors depending on the year model,and engine size,and trans that was equipped at the factory.They are all located on the transaxle.The AX4S has two speed sensors,one located above the final drive assembly,mounted atop the transaxle case,in between the back side of the engine block,and the firewall of the car body.Later versions of the AX4S also carried another speed sensor in the same area,but back closer to the bellhousing,and deleted the one i just described a few sentences back.,Both versions of the AX4S carry a second speed sensor in the channel plate,mounted externally,on the driver side,near the sidecover/pan.Now onto the AX4N trans.This trans also carries a speed sensor in the channel plate,and a second one locatated atop the trans case,behind the rear of the engine block,in between the engine and firewall.The 4F50N also uses the same speed sensor arrangement as the AX4N model.Good luck.
