I\'m assuming you have the 3.8 engine,although i believe the firing order is the same on all there v6 sideways mounted front wheel drive Windstars. That firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6, with 1-2-3 going from left to right on the back side of the engine and 4-5-6 left to right on the front side of the engine.Looking straight down at the coil from the front of the car,you\'ll see 2 rows of coil terminals.The row on the right side is 1-2-3 going from top to bottom,row on left side is 6-5-4 going from top to bottom. Hook the number 1 coil terminal to the number 1 spark plug ,being careful to use the spark plug wire that is closest in length to the length you need. If your just replacing wires,yuo shouldn\'t have to much trouble. If your nreplacing the spark plugs you will find the ones in the rear,especially the number 2 [the middle one} are pretty difficult without removing the cowling. A total pain brought to you by the designers at Ford!

Do you mean the size of the engine? Or the stamped number on the block.

The engine size is on an identification plate usually at the rad support.
The number on the block is hidden, normally you can't see it unless you dismantle quite a bit of the surrounding parts.

If there is more information you need, you can take your VIN number off the dash and call a dealer with it. They can supply you with almost all the information about your vehicle from that number.

is the switch in the always on position ? did they stay on for 30 seconds or so after locking /unlocking vehicle prior to this ? so i'd check the the light switch function, if ok then there may be a timer relay for the light that has failed , most likely located in fusebox lower dash drivers side or behind the kick panel drivers side keep me posted if you wish

PCM (computers) don't fail too often

You need to have the vehicle proper diagnosed
& repaired

You didn't say what the issues were.

Any new PCM will have to be reprogrammed,
most likely at a dealer, as not too many shops
will pay for the access to the MFG Site

Forget anything you were told & just have it diagnosed first
