Question about 2001 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

The engine started running rough,and a short time later the Yellow Engine Light came on and shortly after that the yellow light started flashing every time the engine was revving at a high speeds between 50 kilometers per hour to 55 kilometers per hour. I pulled over and checked to see if there was any visible issues under the hood, but could not see any problems.

Stop by any good parts store (Autozone, Advance, etc..) and have them do an OBII scan (fault scan) They will pull codes and that will identify what's troubling your truck. Most will do this FREE

ENGINE MISFIRE TO THE POINT, THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON. AN IT WILL START TO FLASH. AN WONT GO OUT UNTIL YOU TURN OFF THE CAR .60-65 IT WILL STOP, AS SOON AS THE CAR START TO SLOW DOWN.IT START ALL...


wait untill its dark outside, open your hood and start the engine. look around for white / blue or yellow flashes of light coming from your plug wires. most of the time the spark plug wires are worn out / degraded from heat , and you can see the small lightning flashes in the dark. if you see no light flashes ( shorts to ground) then you can have a cracked / faulty distributor , or bad spark plugs.

What does the check engine light mean on a 1993 dodge caravan turns on after van warms up


Hey there!

To find the code, get a pencil and paper, sit in the drivers seat and gaze at the instrument panel. insert your key in the ignition. (do not turn) Look at the dask and watch the area where the "check Engine" light comes on.. turn the key on-off-on-off-on (semi quickly) do not start the engine.
leave on . the engine light will start flashing. it's like morse code. it will flash a set of numbers then another, then pause, then next number and next, pause (for instance if it is a code twelve, it would flash as follows.. * (short pause) ** (longer pause) if there are other codes, it wil flash them too. so if there were say two codes, say 34 and 35 , it would flash as follows, *** (short pause) ****, (longer pause) ***(short pause)***** ( longer pause) it takes a little to watch the codes and write at the same time. sometimes helps if you have one person watch the light and one write the codes. If you miss one, don't worry it usually repeatseach code three times. if you can't get it quick enough, turn the key off, then wait two - three seconds and try again. let me know wha the codes are and I'll try and help you. good luck.

Finding out what the code number is, is the first step.

You can find this easily by watching the blinking yellow check engine light and counting the number of flashes for each of the numbers in the 4 digit fault code.

To do this without a code reader; sit in the car and turn the ignition on (do not start the car) and after 3 seconds push the accelerator pedal all the way down to the floor and release fully (pull your floor mat out from under the gas pedal). After the 3 seconds, do this 5 times quickly, in less than 5 seconds. Then hold the accelerator pedal down for exactly 7 seconds and release it fully. Then within 10 seconds, the yellow check engine light will begin to blink.

The numbers of blinks will go from 1 to 10. A 10 will represent a "0".

For example; 0303 would be 1st number is 10 flashes, short pause then 3 flashes, short pause then 10 flashes, short pause and 3 flashes. It will repeat this again if there is only one fault code. There could be other fault codes and you would count those in the same way.

The 0303 code means that you have a cylinder misfire in the #3 cylinder. This could be a fouled plug, poor connection between the plug and the coil or something else.

To erase the code hold the gas pedal down while the yellow light is blinking for about 15 seconds then turn off the ingnition. Code will now be reset and light will go out.

If for some reason you do not get the yellow light to start blinking, tturn off the ignition and try it again. You may wish to get a watch with a second hand as the time is critical as to the seconds between steps.

After you find out what codes you have, send back an email and we can document the actual codes and the problems you are having.

Random multiple misfirings


Here is a list of possible causes. You should not drive the vehicle if the check engine light is flashing all the time, you can cause even more damage. It could pay to have a professional find the real cause.

Spark plugs that are incorrect for the application, cracked, improperly gaped or worn can cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
An IC module that failed to correctly control the ignition coil(s) will cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
Poor connections, broken wiring or wiring that has shorts to ground can cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times. NOTE: Check connectors that might be pulled apart as the engine flexes or wires that short to ground as they pass near brackets or shorts to ground on the exhaust manifold.
Fuel injector(s) that are shorted, plugged or partially restricted can cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
An ignition coil(s) that has low output, corrosion on the coil tower(s), is carbon tracked or arcs to ground will cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
A PCM that failed to properly control the injector or ignition timing will cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
