Sounds like the solenoids are not working correctly in your transmission. May need to be rebuilt. Check with your local transmission shop about this problem.

98 ford windstar...service engine light comes on..then it begins to flash, when flashing the power seems to drop, it runs very rough. when coming to a stop or slow turn it may cut off. occasionaly when...


There is only thing will cause the check engine light to flash when you are driving and that is your catalyst converter is over heating and that is very dangerous if you continue to drive the van and the check engine light is flashing there is a very real possibility your van can catch on fire. What causes the catalyst converter to get hot is that raw fuel is being dumped into the exhaust system. That system can get so hot that it will glow cherry red it’s easier to see it at night. Please make sure and are expecting your problem correctly and if you are take it to a shop because you have more than one problem and the van is not safe to drive

My check transmission light is on and my o/d light is flashing. I have a 2001 ford windstar sel with 155000 miles


Go to autozone for a free computer scan and get the fault codes first.

I think it may be a defective vehicle speed sensor (VSS) but the codes will tell us.

did you get the ecm flash programmed? newer vehicles require the ecm to be flash programmed before they are installed your dealer and some auto parts stores can do this for you it usually runs around $90.
