Question about 2001 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

I can start my van, put it in gear, but it wont move.

I have a 96' Chrystler Town and Country. We just recently changed the oil and brakes. Then drove it home, and around town, then back home and when I got in the driveway, I stoped and it kind of jerked, then wouldnt move anymore. I can start it, put it in every gear, but it wont move at all. Please help me figure out if there is any use in taking it to the shop to get it fixed.

It is possible the parking brake is hanging up or a shoe in the drum has gotten hot, expanded, and "locked up" the brake.
You may also have a caliper that has "siezed up".
I recommend taking at look at all wheels, you may have to take each one off seperatly to find the problem.
Please let me know what you find.

I've got a 96 town and country van i replaced the


The bolt that holds the line to the caliper is called a banjo bolt. It needs a copper seal on the top where the head of the bolt meets the line and one at the bottom between where the line meets the caliper. You should be able to get a replacement bolt and new seals in the HELP section of your local auto parts store, if this does not stop the leak there must be a problem with the caliper threads themselves and you might have to exchange it for another one at your parts store.

My transmission is slipping any ideas whats wrong with my 98 chrystler town & country van?


Have the transmission flushed, if you have a lot of miles on the car, the fluid may be too dirty to do it's job efficiently. It's a relatively cheap fix.

96 town and country wont turn over and shift indicator does not show park


It sounds as if your shift cable is out of adjustment. If you remove the air filter box and the hose at the throttle body you will be able to access the transmission shift lever, on top of the ******.Loosen the cable adjusting screw that is on the lever. Pull the lever all the way to its detent position which is Park. Release the parking brake and rock the vehicle to assure that it is in Park lock. Reset parking brake. In the cab, place the Shift lever in the Park position, return under the hood and tighten the cable adjusting screw. Your van will only start when the transmission is in Park or Neutral. Hope this helps! Dan Williams
