2003 Ford Windstar 3.8 143k rough idle stalls & engine lite runs good after warmed up. Local yokel guessed at leaking intake gaskets. Any thoughts? burdfrenzy@tampabay.rr.com


I have a 2003 ford windstar.Engine started to run rough when it
used to rained.I would accelarate it until roughness would go away sort of.It lack a little power but if I take it a mechanic they would charged too much money.Anyway, the problem was a spark plug wire in front of the engine, wires that are grouped together with that little pin. One of them was rubbing agains the valve cover and it got worned out current would leak out right there.I discovery it one time that it rainned really hard I had to go out and the wagon started to miss really bad and it wouldn't move.Finally, I got home the next day I looked under the hood to see what I can see and there it was a spark plug wire that one can tell if you know a little bit about cars that current was leaking throw it. I replaced wire problem solved.But now after all of that snow we had the check engine light came on and I am not sure what could be.For I remmerber running over a mountain of sort of hard snow.So it probably broke oxigine sensor wire.

Where is the brake fluid compartment in a 1998 volkswagan golf


look under the boonet / hood towards the back of the engine and you'll see a large circular assembly with a silver cylinder bolted on the end of it with a plastic reservoir on the top. it should have a bright yellow cap on it with 'brake fluid only' stamped on the top. hope this helps

I have a 1999 vw Golf Wolfsburg Ed. 4cyl. 2.0 It is the old body style. The car runs ok as long as it doesn't rain. When it rains car will start and idle fine but when you hit the gas it spudders no power...


You must have bad ignition wires. The high voltage electricity must be leaking out of the boot(s) and arching from the moist air surrounding the coil pack.
Use a spray bottle filled with tap water. Set the nozzle to mist and not stream, you want to have a misting effect. With the engine running, spray at the area of the spark plugs, wires and coil pack. Do this in a dark area so you can easily see if any arching is produced. Observe while spraying water if the engine starts to run rough. If it does you definitely have an electrical leak and need to repair or replace that part. Some people apply JB Weld epoxy to a cracked ignition coil pack housing, I would just replace the coil because it can cause misfiring of a cylinder and ruin your catalytic converter. For a 2.0 AEG engine it would cost about $70 for the part. If it were the ignition wires, they usually cost the same price.

02 VW Golf runs rough after sitting in the rain.


Water is probably leaking onto your engine somehow and shorting out the plugs.

Car stalled while running


Check under the back seat for an access panel to the pump. Might be the pump or just the level unit. Good luck.
