Hello, Ford Windstar timing for the timing of the crankshaft in reference to
cam shafts. First, you'll need an auto repair manual for 1995 Ford Windstar with
3.0 engine. Any auto store will have these auto manual for those who like to do
it their self's.
Read the disassemble instruction make careful notes on
where parts when they come off and where they go back. Follow the linement
instruction for the cams and the crankshaft. These lineament marks on the cam
sprocket and the cam drive gear on the crankshaft will have to be in there
proper location--timing marks. Double or even triple check this lineament
procedures and what is specified in the repair manual. I hope this will really
help you out. GB...stewbison
I dont think that will work ....1988 was aod and aode trans
The AXOD-E was renamed AX4S in 1993. In addition to the name change,
improvements in the lubrication of the gearset and capacity upgrades
were made. A centrifugal piston assembly was implemented in the
intermediate clutch position to improve 1st-2nd and 2nd-1st shift
quality and an increase in the clutch's durability was made on some
models. High energy friction materials were also introduced. A new twin
piston torque converter clutch (TCC) was introduced with the AX4S and
the AX4N on some models. The transaxle pan on this model will sometimes
read "AXOD Metric" since it's based on the AXOD transaxle. The data
plate code for this transmission is "L."
The Ford AX4S automatic transmission
is a four-speed electronic overdrive transmission used in 1995 to 2000
Ford Windstar minivan. The transmission is also used in 1991 to 2003 Ford Taurus
and Mercury Sable, and 1993 to 1995 Ford Taurus SHO models. The AX4S is
a second-generation version of the AXOD and AXOD-E transmissions used
in 1986 to 1991 Ford Taurus.
i dont have a diagram but know how it goes on. from the passenger side of the van starting at the crank shaft. it goes from the crank shaft to the ac pump straight up to the power steering pump down to the ideler pully then back up to altinator then down aroun the water pump then over to the tensioner and back down to the crank saft
First thing is to check the fluid level in the transmission, most vehicles have to be running at engine operating temp either in P or N, check your owners manual. Assuming your fluid is where it should be, that vehicle you have sorry to tell you are notorious for transmission failures, by what you described looks like your going to have to replace the trany or rebuild it, either way its not a cheap fix. My advise if the van is in really good condition put a used trany in it and trade it in for something else. You can look anywhere online about customer/ owner feed backs on 88-98 windstar vans and how bad the transmissions are on those Ford didn't get smart till 99 or 00 when they redisgned the drive train. If you keep driving it the way it is the trany will completely fail leaving you on the side of the road somewhere.
