If it ran hot when the water pump went out, it may have melted some of the interior parts and so ruined the engine. As it was driven on, it probably blew the head gasket. You may fix it simply by replacing the head gasket or you may need a complete engine overhaul, depending on how hot it got and how much damage was done. The only way to know for certain is to go into the engine to assess the damage.

2003 windstar running rough and leaking water


How much the leaking of water is? It is usually common to find some drops of water beneath the engine due to the working of AC components. If it is the coolant, your car might have a leak somewhere in the radiator, hoses or water pump. However, this will again cause the engine temp gauge to rise. The rough running engine could be due to number of reasons like, clogged fuel or air filter, injectors, MAF sensor, O2 sensor etc. It is better to first try inspecting the spark plugs for their proper functioning; this will bring down the problem a bit. Also, if there is a CEL blinking it is better to get the codes read.

Have a 1998 ford windstar if wont start and the security light flashes when trying to start it


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Where is the fuel pump...went to start my car and it wouldnt turn over...put gas in it on friday...didnt drive it over the weekend...whats wrong with it...


The fuel pump is in the fuel tank.First you need to check for spark at any of the sparkplugs and if you have spark then, check the fuel pressure it should be 30-45 psi with key on engine off.

My ford windstar is leaking antifreeze fast, what could be the problem? and can i fix it


If the antifreeze is leaking fast, then the most probable cause can be a hole or split in one of the coolant hoses. It is also possible for the radiator or water pump to have a leak. If you cannot see the leak when you inspect under the hood, then you may have to take the vehicle to your service repair shop where they can lift the van on a hoist to inspect underneath and they can pressurize the system to locate the coolant leak..

Where do I start with code P0301? Spark plugs and wires? takes about 3 to 4 days to reset


Cylinder 1 misfire. If it does reset in 3-4 days, it could be a fouled spark plug. Depending on last replacement, may want to replace all spark plugs. Plug wires may be breaking down, causing intermittent misfire. If you haven't done tune up in awhile start with these 2. May cure your problem.
