Question about Ford Windstar
There is a windshield drain under the passenger wiper that can drip water right on the spark plug coil box. There is also a cheap foam gasket between the wiper cowl and that drain that deteriorates or gets twisted. I replaced my gasket with some black high density window foam backed with a glue/fiberglass tape from Home Depot. You start by removing the wiper cowl and transmission assembly (meaning WIPER TRANSMISSION, not vehicle transmission) for access. The only tools needed are a 15mm socket or wrench for the nuts that secure the wiper arms to the linkage, a philips screwdriver to remove the wiper cowl panel, and a 5/16" socket with appropriate extension and ratchet to remove all the bolts that secure the cowl panel to the body. The drain is right in the middle, it pivots and can be removed and re-seated. It might be dislodged and just needs to be re-seated. PS: This is also how you get to the spark plugs underneath the windshield cowling. Good luck.
