Question about 1999 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

Transmission problems My 1995 windstar is just fine when you start it, then it seems as if you let it heat up (about 5 or 6 blocks) the transmission gears start slipping and dont want to stay in gear, also the overdrive light is constantly blinking. Is there anyway this is the two sensors together or is the tranny gone?

I would start by going to a different shop/mechanic and have them scan the data to see whats going on electrically..but i would think at this mileage and with it slipping you're probably going to be looking at an overhaul/replacement transmission.

My 95 Windstar idles very roughly. It starts just fine but after about 4 to 5 minutes it starts idling roughly. I put a new air filter in but that didn't do anything.


Hi, Try to replace fuel filter. It maybe clogged up and making engine run rough or poor. Also check and replace spark plugs. A bad spark plug will make it run rough too. Good luck.

oddly enough it sounds like a transmission problem, get a transmission shop to assess the problem, but first try replacing the thermostat. be sure to turn on the heater when adding antifreeze. I have had this problem with my windstar.

How to fix the heat in my 1995 windstar


thats really vague? Does the fan come on or just no heat? Fan look to the fuses, no heat look to the coolant see if its low. You might need a heater core or you could have a nest in your air box from rodents. I have removed over 30 of those in 5 years.

1995 Ford Windstar transmission is slipping and shifting hard


bad news, 1995 ford windstar transmissions fail extremely frequently at about 60000 miles, I would not waste money in a transmission flush as it will most likely not correct the problem. It is a dsign flaw, the transmission cannot handle the torque of the 3,8L engine and the 700Lbs of added weight of the windstar body.
I'd just use it untill it fails...
