You will need to have the battery tested, I am sure you need a new one, Kragen Auto provides free battery testing.

Thunderbird Starts Fine and after say 25 min drive on the highway. pull into lets say walmart run in back out and the car struggles to start bucking and such and usually stalls and wont start.. after it...


Sounds as if you are experiencing early stages of fuel pump failure. The pump motor is getting "hot" during the 25 minute drive. After you shut the car off and try to restart it,the pump is weak and not getting the fuel pressure up enough to allow for a quick start and smooth running. I would check the bleed down time on the fuel system and the pressure to see what it is before and after the 25 minute drive time.

95 ford windstar dies when i turn the steering wheel hard


windstar has a pressure switch on the pressuer line to the rack and pinion, squeeze the plug and pull up to disconect it and see if it happens again. you might have a short in one of these wires or the switch ... to reach the switch it is mounted on top of the power steering rack so reach down behind the motor on the driver side or crawl under and reach up on driver side

Start up 1996 ford windstar ,runs great,get the van up to operating temp,shut off van and try to restart 15 mins later its very hard to start.....if you leave it and come back when it's cold it will start...


Not your camshaft sensor, it would not even start. Your going to have to get it scaned, but I'm thinking it may be your EGR system.

If you are comfortable performing some basic checks prior to resorting to the Ford Dealer then try pulling a vacuum on the EGR valve to make sure the pintle moves freely in both directions. While you're at it, make sure all vacuum hoses and system components hold a vacuum. Inspect the EGR valve visually for coking and contamination. Check EGR solenoids and the position sensor for electrical continuity.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Occasionally my 99 Sable won't restart till after 3/4 hour wait


There is a condition called thermal breakdown in ignition parts( ie: spark control modules). Pretty common really in older stuff. Why does it happen only after shutdown? because of a condition called heat soak. underhood temps rise higher than ever right after shutdown. Your ignition module is mounted to the side of the distributor. If practical when the problem happens pour cold water on the module give it one minute and see if it starts(wont damage it) if it starts right up you proved it bad. Hope I helped Thanks
