You may have a crack in the cylinder head or a gasket that is leaking into the inlet or exhaust manifolds. Have the system pressure checked or you can add a sealant to the coolant, but it is not advisable with the modern micro core radiators.

99 ford windstar will crank but wont start after over heating?


While overheating may be the issue, does the exhaust emit a steam-like cloud or sweet smell? There is a part which cuts off power to the fuel pump. This part is called an Inertia sensor. If a door or the hood is slammed, it can activate.

It is usually behind a front floor kickpanel and has a reset button on it. Read the Web for articles showing photos.

I have oil in my water reservoir. What could cause this? I can't find an oil leak anywhere, but I know I have one. Any suggestions?


Most of the time oil in the cooling system is from a leaking head gasket or cracked cyl head. Usually head gaskets on 3.8 Ford engines.

The 2000 Ford Windstar that I have is using water. I fill it up with 2 containers of antifreeze and the next evening it needs some more added. I do not see any visible leaks in the driveway or when it is...


Engine coolant that is disappearing and leaving no visible trace is NOT a good thing. You most likely have a blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder head. (engine coolant going out the exhaust) Also check your oil to make sure the water is not getting into your crankcase. If it is, the oil will be over-full and will look like a chocolate milk-shake.

How can i tell if my ford windstar needs the head gaskets changed?


overheating, white smoke from tail pipe(ignore this one during cold weather), oil is light brown or milky looking which indicates water in the oil, and of course loosing coolant when there is no coolant leak

We were driving down the freeway when the ODT light started flashing on our 2000 Ford Windstar. WE pulled over, and it was gushing transmission fluid. Well, we got more fluid, and added it, and the ODT...


I would have the vehicle scanned to find out why the od light was flashing. When the light flashes there will be a diagnostic code stored in the engine computer. It sounds like the transmission overheated for some reason and vented the fluid. By the time you added fluid the transmission and started driving the transmission cooled down and quit leaking.

2001 Ford Windstar is leaking antifreeze


Could be water pump, radiator, freeze plugs, hoses, ect. try and isolate the area by putting a piece of card board down on the ground and line up what is above it. Garages use a pressure tester on the cooling system to see where the leak is. I would guess water pump,or small bypass hose

Rough idle/stall after hot soak 02 windstar


Check the fuel pressure regulator for leaks, if that isn't it, it might be a leaking fuel injector.
