SOURCE: Ford Windstar oil leak

I had the same problem. It was very simple; the oil filter had developed a leak, and needed to be replaced. Cheap. Worked perfectly.

This means that your key is not being recogonized.Ethier the chip in the key is bad or the patts transciever at the lock cylinder. Do you have a spare key? If not you will have to get 2 new keyss cut and programmed.

SOURCE: illustrated diagram on how to remove speed sensor for windstar 98

The Vehicle Speed Sensor is located on transaxle, at the rear of the engine. I would check the harness connector to be sure it is clean and connected tightly. Also check the wiring for cuts and chaffing. Since it is fairly inexpensive, only about $42.00 from Ford, you may want to consider replacing it, at least to eliminate it as a possibility. You may want to go to a muffler shop to have this done like speedy, I believe the flex pipe needs to be undone to get to the VVS. If there is an Auto Zone around your area, you could always ask them for the step by step instructions to replacing the VVS, and it's free of charge. Good luck and hope this helps.

2000 ford windstar has a bad stumble when idling like it's missing accelerates fine when reaches cursing speed acks like it's missing also my cruise control stoped working


If your Windstar has the 3.8 liter engine, you are due for head gasket replacement. Just had mine done. The cruise control failure could be due to an open fuse or speed sensor failure.

You probably have lost your ground. Check ground straps going from firewall to engine block. Then follow through and verify at the lights and look for exposed or corroded wires.

2001 ford windstar rpms drop low when idling and sometimes stalls


How long has this been going on? When a problem like this develops, it's always a good start to check for any fault codes in your engine's computer. Autozone and a few others will do a scan for free and give you any code numbers and technical descriptions, if the computer has stored any faults.
If you've kept track of normal maintenance over time, then a low idle should be a fairly easy problem to fix. That being said, it's not so simple. The computer controls your idle speed under all conditions, and relies on several sensors and switches (inputs and out puts) to work effectively. Have your mechanic check it with the low idle, dying problem in mind. Sounds to me like it needs tweaking-idle control valve, throttle position sensor, air flow meter. See? Get the proper diagnosis, so you don't buy unnecessary parts.
Maybe our ford guru, emissionwiz, will stroll along and find your fix from memory (he's the best).

Failed OBDII Diagnstic trouble codes P0761 and O1744 What does this mean?


code P0761-
Possible causes - Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty shift solenoid 3 valve
- Shift solenoid 3 valve harness or connectors
- Shift solenoid 3 valve circuit is open or shorted
P0761 FORD Description Shift solenoid valve 3 is turned ON or OFF by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the park/neutral position (PNP) switch, vehicle speed and Engine Control Module (ECM) (throttle opening). Gears will then be shifted to the optimum position. When is the code detected? The P0761 code is detected when the ECM has detected a mechanical fault with the solenoid energized, valve stuck off code O1744- is not a code these are the ones I have found that come close

Hey my windstar is dropping idle real low, and showing a lean mix bank1 and bank 2 code i have replaced both o2 sensors. can anyone give me another insight on this..it still runs great a speed a little...


Check for leaks at plem gasket and manafold gasket leaks
this happens on a lot of these when the mileage gets up above a 100,000 spray carb cleaner around the gaskets

No heat in 99 ford windstar


Check the coolant level. If it's low, what you describe will happen. There is not sufficient coolant to flow through the heater core at idle. At 60mph the water pump is spinning quickly, managing to get some coolant through the heater core, so you get heat until the rpm's drop at idle. If it is due to low level, keep an eye on it to see if it drops again, as you may have a leak.
