Question about 1999 Ford Windstar
I have had my 99 windstar since new. I have changed the back head twice. Once at 100000km and again now at 130000. I purchased all the parts from the ford dealer. I had to put a new rad in it at 25000 km and transmission at 650000km. Why is the same head giving me problems??? Thanks
When you removed the head the 1st time, did you send it in to the machine shop to have it surfaced and check for cracks? By having it surfaced, the machine shop makes to head's mounting surface perfectly flat. If you didn' have the head surfaced the 1st time, the head may have been warped causing the head gasket to fail the 2nd time.
