Question about 2001 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

2001 Ford Windstar LX...recently was on the highway doing 120km and the engine felt like something hit it like a rock and then the engine started to chug. (I don't think a rock hit it however). It Idles fine but when you give it gas it chugs. Had someone put a computer on it and said something with cylinder #5 and to try changing plugs and wires. So I got them changed and it got better, but however the problem still remains. Just recently changed the fuel filter and the air filter as well. Again seems to be running better as the fuel filter seemed to be pretty clogged. I just put some fuel injector cleaner in it and took it for a drive. It doesn't seem to chug as hard but it is still very evident when you are trying to accelerate. Should I be letting more of the cleaner run through for a longer period of time or is there any other thoughts on what it could be?

My transmission went on my 2001 Ford Windstar LX. The overdrive light was flashing on and off when I was driving it on the highway and when I came to a stop steam was coming out of the engine compartment....


Steven, The trans cooling lines run from the transmission to the radiator tank. This cools the trans fluid. Making new lines is challenging and takes expierence and special tools. Usually the lines will break where a bracket holds the line to the engine or trans. Look for a rust spot or shinny spot rubbed on the line and that is most likely where the leak is. You may be able to buy this line already made but probabally only from the dealer.

My 2000 Ford Windstar LX is randomly losing all power & shutting down for 2-5 seconds while driving. Everything stops working ( like theres no battery in the car ), then it comes back and starts right...


If you just had your battery replaced recently before that, Either your positive or negitive terminal is probably loose and needs tightened. It may get jarred around, and do that shutdown your 2-3 times, until something jars it to a better connecting position.
