Question about Ford Windstar

Open Question

I have a 2001 Ford Windstar. O/D off light started flashing and got check trans message. Trans seemed fine but I noticed after light came on it was shifting hard. After I checked code (P1744) and cleared code it shifts fine. After a couple of minutes it will code again and shift hard, if I stop and turn van off and restart it will shift fine until it codes again. Please help if you can, thnx.

SOURCE: 1999 ram auto trans wont shift into park

you could need a throttle linkage adjustment. first check to see if your ram will start in "park" and "neutral" only. if it starts in any other gear=faulty neutral safety switch. replace. ok, now check linkage for proper adjustment...with engine off and in park...remove intake housing..disconnect cableend from attatchment stud on your throttle body..slide cable off the stud (carefully)..verify that the transmissionthrottle lever is fully forward (idle) position..and verify that the lever on the throttle body is at curb idle pos..insert small screwdriver under edge of the retaining clip and remove..center the cable end on attatchment stud to within 0.04", or 1mm. install retaining clip onto cable housing..check cable adjustment..be sure trans throttle lever and throttlr body lever move in sync with each other.

SOURCE: Trans shifts very hard after 5 minutes of stop and go traffic

A reason for hard shifting could be a problem with many things with various degrees of seriousness. It could be your ATF( automatic transmission fluid) is low or broken down and old. This would cause the hardness and the reason for stop and go traffic effecting it. Another possibility is your transmission is just shot, and the timing gears inside are worn and not properly shifting at the correct RPM causing a **** during shifting.

Some possibilties, not all!

SOURCE: 1998 dodge stratus will not shift after engine swop

Check the input shaft and output shaft speed sensors on the transmission. One is likely bad.

My transmission went on my 2001 Ford Windstar LX. The overdrive light was flashing on and off when I was driving it on the highway and when I came to a stop steam was coming out of the engine compartment....


Steven, The trans cooling lines run from the transmission to the radiator tank. This cools the trans fluid. Making new lines is challenging and takes expierence and special tools. Usually the lines will break where a bracket holds the line to the engine or trans. Look for a rust spot or shinny spot rubbed on the line and that is most likely where the leak is. You may be able to buy this line already made but probabally only from the dealer.

Windstar Minivan - starts, will not reverse, only forward


Needs a Trans most likely, known to fail around 100k miles. Maintenance very important and correct fluid on these. At the Dealer the price used to be around $2,000.00 , aftermarket shops around half that, FIND a REPUTABLE shop.
