Question about 1999 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

Vam stalling I need help! I have a 1999 Ford windstar. I started it up the other day and it stalled. I turned it back on it was fine. I drive off and then when I get 1/2 mile down the road at the red light it stalls again. So I started it back up and it was fine. I get driving and slow down it stalls again. It turns over fine. I was driving on the highway about 60 mph and the car starts to gallop so I slowed down. It seemed as I pressed on the gas it galloped again but not when I lightened up on the gas. Any suggestions?

There are too many reasons...

it could be fuel pump,, it could be ignition coil overheating, it could be the computer itself...

you need two things for the engine to run,

1 is gas
2nd is ignition,,

with these two misfiring or your loosing one of them, it will stall...

i hope i was able to give you some thoughts....

Windstar 2001 had it since new. over 120,000 miles suddenly started stalling cuople months ago had alternator replaced, bearings anything on the serpentine belt incl oil and water pump checked or replaced....


The problem with your van is the CAM Sensor, I believe the noise you are hearing is kind of a chirping sound. I just had mine fixed (12/19/09) it was about $150 for parts and labor from a local Mech. not a dealer.

1999 Ford Windstar. engine stalls.


You know, lookinig at this problem more, you have more possibilities of what may be wrong:
  1. Your idle speed may be incorrect
  2. Fuel filter may be clogged or water and impurities in your fuel system
  3. Possible damaged coil pack or wires
  4. Emissions sytem components faulty (a sensor, catalytic converter, muffler, etc.)
  5. Faulty or incorrect gapped spark plugs
  6. A vacuum leak at the intake manifold or vacuum hoses (check the hoses for cracks or damage)
  7. Fuel injection or engine control systems malfunction (ECM)
This should keep you busy....at least with the easy stuff to inspect.
