If you don't have any experiance in doing this type of repair, iI would have someone that has do it. But if you want to tackel this go buy a repair manual at an autoparts store- it'll keep you from making a 'basket case' of it. good luck.

?what does '97 Ford T.Bird 4.6 dohc V8 engine manifold looks like?


That sounds like a vacuum leak. Check all vacuum lines. If it's a plastic intake, the fittings sometimes come loose or the bolts come loose and some even crack. a411465a-d08f-4079-a8ce-4e35db1c4995.jpg 3d76ea72-45b3-4ddf-92a7-3ce6abf36a9d.jpg 60749eaa-428f-4970-8c9b-eb5cf40089b3.jpgAGCO Automotive repair service page will explain a little and has some detailed pics.

you will need to check #2 cylinder compression. If good run engine and unplug the fuel injector for #2 to see if the idle changes. no change means bad injector. also check for good spark at plug.


possible intake manifold leak.

2003 windstar 3.8 liter V6 Must crank 2 or 3 times before engine start when hot or cold. Dealer was talking about possible electronic choke defective. Where is the location of this part


There is no electronic choke on this vehicle. this engine control adds more fuel on cold starts for through injectors pulse width to quicker starting. you may have a camsynchronizer and sensor going bye bye. looks like a little distriburor on top of waterpump. must have special tools to synchronize so don't pull out. also your fuel pump may be getting weak. you can try cycling key a few time to build fuel pressure before starts,replace fuel filter also and make sure air filter is ok.

Engine hesitating during acceleration


Ok, there are many issues here that you will need to inspect. I recommend changing the fuel filter and pump as well. this will fix the hesitation. the intake and exhaust manifold gaskets will need to be replaced as well. this will stop the backfiring.

I also recommend checking and running a teat on the PCV valve and inspect the PCV hose as well. it could have a leak or a small crack on it.

Check the air filter and change if needed. this will help with acceleration issues as well. Next, i would run a check on all plugs and the complete wire set as well. change if needed.

Inspect the injectors for leaks and lose wires. make sure they are in good condition. replace any injectors that isn't firing properly.

Ok, there are some sensors that you will need to check as well. i will list them below.

SENSOR CHECK LIST--

1. Check the O2 sensors for worn wires.
2. Check the MAFS(Mas Air Flow Sensors) Check for Damaged, Loose, or Faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor or Circuit.
3. Check the Air Cleaner Temperature Sensor. this sensor could be damaged ro have loose wires. check accordingly.
4. Check the Throttle Position Sensor. this device could be connected wrong or it may be faulty as well. replace if needed.

Be sure and inspect all the above and repair any problem spot you ruin across during your inspection.

Please rate and god bless:)

Ford windstar OBD II code P1537/38, P0171 and P0420


It could all be related.P1537/38 are the intake manifold runner controls are stuck open.They are controlled by vacuum solenoids.The P0171 is bank one of the engine is running lean,usually caused by a vacuum leak, P0420 is catalytic converter efficiency code. The computer monitors the switch rate of the front 02 sensors and compares it to the switch rate of the rear 02 sensors to tell if catalytic converter is doing its job. Now if the front 02 is not switching properly then this will cause this test to fail and set this code.
Look on bottom section of the intake manifold at the back of engine(where tranny bolts up) you should see the vacuum motors there on the intake,these are the control motors for the intake manifold runners.Make sure the vacuum lines are hooked up and lines are not leaking. Also you will see a lever from it to intake make sure they move and are not binding.
