The camshaft is driven by the crankshaft by either a belt or chain. These have to stay in line or in (time ) with each other, If not the engine may not run correctly, if at all or worse can break stuff. In case you dont know, the crankshaft pushes the pistons up and down and the camshaft opens the valves so gas can go in and exhaust out. ( very simplified )

1996 Ford Windstar Engine Idle Problems


Hi

The air con compressor puts quite a bit of stress on the engine, hence the increase in fuel consumption and slight loss of power, and, the magnification of even the slightest problem.

Your problem could be caused by any number of things, so you need to go back to the basics and check all the usual suspects, such as the EGR valve, which is where I would start, followed by the idle control valve, both of which can be repaired with a good clean out to ensure they aren't sticking open.

Very best regards

Poor acceleration 1996 ford windstar gl.


Hi

This sounds decidedly like a faulty or dirty MAF sensor, which is located right next to the air filter box.

Unplug the wiring plug to the MAF and if all or most of the power is restored then you either need to clean or renew the MAF sensor.
