Hi Counchcharles
Your service displays have to be reset with the correct electronic equipment....When you chage the engine oil the computer management system will have to be told...thats the job of the scanner....go to a service centre and have them cancel it for you.
The over heating problem is nothing to do with that though.....Check to see if you have any the pressure cap only when the engine is is first thing before start up in the morning....check to see if you need topping up....if you do, it'll mean you have a leakage....Check the entire radiator and hoses where they go from the rad into the engine and ventilation system for stains from the coolant....If you can't find any look at the thermostat....If you remove it, replace with anew unit, do not dis-guard it also check the pressure cap and if needs be replace....Good luck

SOURCE: ford windstar van, 2003

I had a small plastic piece replaced in the transmission and it solved the problem(2007). My car was still under warranty, so it only cost me about $100.00. The actual cost was closer to $900.00 because of the labor involved. I used the Ford Dealer in Schulenburg, Texas. They would know exactly what you are talking about, if you ask them.

Should be close to the oil filter. It will be a metal tube sticking out with 1 wire running to a pod at the end of it.

Ford windstar 2003 3.8 V6 where is oil sending unit located?

It could either be on the flange where the oil filter screws on or it might on top of the engine block at one end or the other. It won't be anywhere in the middle. If you don't know what it looks like, It will be screwed into where ever it is. It will be metal on the bottom to 1/2 way up where it becomes black plastic. At the middle where the metal and plastic meet, it will look like it will take a kind of large
funky looking socket to remove it. If you can swing a pair of channel locks in there, and if you are careful; you won't have to buy a socket that you'll probably never use again. At the top of the plastic half, there will be either a slip-on connector or possibly a nut holding a wire onto the unit. It only needs one wire as it goes to ground when activated. good luck.

2000 Ford Windstar uses 1 gt. of oil per 300 miles no smoke on leaks

Have you actually got under the vehicle and made sure of the no leak. Loosing that much oil I would suspect the oil sending unit is bad. and they can still give a reading and be bad.

My 1998 windstar just lost oil presure ,all oil pressure

If the engine runs quiet the gauge in the dash or the oil sending unit is bad. generally the sender on the engine goes bad from the heat of the engine. If the engine makes all sorts of noises and rattles inside the oil pump is shot

1995 Ford Windstar transmission is slipping and shifting hard

bad news, 1995 ford windstar transmissions fail extremely frequently at about 60000 miles, I would not waste money in a transmission flush as it will most likely not correct the problem. It is a dsign flaw, the transmission cannot handle the torque of the 3,8L engine and the 700Lbs of added weight of the windstar body.
I'd just use it untill it fails...
