Make sure the radiator cooling fan is working and if it is then replace the thermostat and the cooling cap with the engine cold

99 ford windstar will crank but wont start after over heating?


While overheating may be the issue, does the exhaust emit a steam-like cloud or sweet smell? There is a part which cuts off power to the fuel pump. This part is called an Inertia sensor. If a door or the hood is slammed, it can activate.

It is usually behind a front floor kickpanel and has a reset button on it. Read the Web for articles showing photos.

We have no heat,


I'm going to think about the heat question

Get that trans fluid changed tomorrow

You spin those tires in snow & heat any part of
the drivetrain your doomed

Those are the worst transaxles out there

Not trying to scare you or be hurtful

I once owned a trans repair shop,just do it

My 2001 olds sil mini van keeps overheating :( we have replaced the water pump temp sensor thermostat and flushed it with Prestone Super radiator flush and put in peak antifreee 50/50 so to not mess up...


How long can you drive it before it gets hot ?
Are you positive all of the air is out of the cooling system ?
You could run it without the thermostat to check for a blockage in the system that would prevent flow. If the block is full of coolant, and the water pump is pumping it thru the passages, you should have heat.

I'm having cooling/overheating problems as well;mine all started with the timing belt breaking; then needed the water pump fixed,then noticed my car wanted to over heat after driving for awhile, then had...


Its possible the timing belt is not correctly aligned. The car will still run but will have adverse problems, loss of power, poor economy, overheating. If the head gasket is wrong or improperly installed (upside down) certain cooling passages could be blocked causing the over heat. Have a different shop verify ignition timing, compression, timing belt alignment, thermostat installation direction, cooling system integrity i. e. pressure test the radiator cap and system, coolant flow through radiator, and cooling fan operation. good luck

How to fix the heat in my 1995 windstar


thats really vague? Does the fan come on or just no heat? Fan look to the fuses, no heat look to the coolant see if its low. You might need a heater core or you could have a nest in your air box from rodents. I have removed over 30 of those in 5 years.

Front defrost not working


If you smell coolant then your heater coil is about to go out. It will still heat but will soon add headache after headache . have someone check your heater coil and see if that gets rid of the smell.

Stalling problems


Remove the raidator cap while running or watch the overflow tank for bubbles. If you see bubbles either way, most likely your cause of the overheating is a leaking head gasket. If you have a cooling system pressure tester, pump up the cooling system and see if it looses pressure, if it doesn't hold pressure, again bad head gasket.
