Bosch are okey,just use the OEM configuration,not these 4 prong silly things, you see in ads.

Check out NGK-they come with motorcraft and ngk logos,from factory. Now you know who makes Ford Plugs

Two things---
1--you won't improve mileage on a 10 year old vehicle,or a new one,doing anything
2--There have not been Tune-Ups in 25 years,all vehicles are computer controlled,no tuning,no adjusting

You are performing a Preventative Maintainance Service--been that for over 30 years.
Remember OBD1 1980 thru 1995
OBD2 1996 thru 2011

I HAVE a2000 windstar lx with 3.8. just put new plugs&wires cyl #5 IS LOADED with fuel and the cat converter is now getting cherry red


You may as well change the #5 Injector to start with. I imagine you rechecked the spark on that cylinder as well. Could be a cracked sparkplug too. Check routing of #5 Injector wire. If improperly placed it could pickup a pulse to inject from other cylinders and then fire constantly.
Most likely you broke loose carbon in the cylinder head when the plug was removed and then it blew carbon back to the Injector head, blocking it open.

What can I expect to be the "best" mileage per


you can never go wrong with what the factory used, motorcfaft avoid any of the so called high perforamce parts, most of this parts will hurt the fuel millage and perforamce unless you change the coils and other sensors in order for this parts to work properly. as for gas mileage when the van was new it was rated at 12 mpg city 16mpg highway

What is a good spark plug to use for a tune up


HI. The bosh platinum brand will be the better solution.

Bosch Platinum+2 offers great firing technology, which combines the advantages of 2 nickel-yttrium ground electrodes, pure platinum center electrode and surface air gap technology for optimum engine performance, smoother acceleration and better gas mileage. The key here is "better gas mileage"

I run these plugs myself, and they are very nice replacement plugs

2000 ford windstar problem with gas mileage


Start the car with the hood open. Check the engine compartment as well as the fuel line from the fuel tank to the engine compartment. If there is a leak you will find it. Remember gasoline will evaporate quickly when there is air movement so watch carefully to make sure you don't look over the leak.

I have Honda Accord EX. It does not get a good gas mileage. Why?


There are a few things you can do to improve your gas mileage. First of all, check the tire pressure. If you are not running at the recommended psi, on the label on the side of the drivers side door, go to a gas station and get your tires filled to the recommended level, then be sure to check every month. Next, get a new air filter. Plenty of air is critical to maximize mileage. Consider changing the spark plugs and getting a tune up. Finally remove any unnecessary items from your car, and your trunk. Every extra pound you haul around is costing you money. Regards, Joe

My 1999 Taurus needs a tune up will this cause the car to loose power? read if you don't get a tune up this will cause problems.


a tune up will help with getting you back the power you are loseing (plugs wires distributor cap rotor oil change and a filter and a fuel filter) the car will only continue to get worse untill it wont run any more if you dont give it a tune up

Tune up


the rear plugs are accessed from under the van, they are a pain to change.

Gas gauge not working


Hi,
This sounds like the sender unit in the fuel tank is worn or possibly a corroded/ bad earth from the unit itself.
There should be an inspection plate above the fuel tank removal of this should reveal the sender unit and connections, if not can you see on top of it? make sure all connections are clean and not gunged up with corrosion. Try spraying Wd40 or similar around the area whilst wiggling the plugs/wires.
Good Luck, Please press the Blue Button to appraise my FREE! Effort.
Thank You!
