About Ford Windstar
The first-generation model (1994-1998) was released in March 1994 as a 1995 model. It featured an extensive list of standard equipment and sleek design, front-wheel layout and better car-like handling. There were base GL, high-end LX and Limited trim levels as well as a cargo version called Cargo Van available for it. The Ford Windstar then was powered by a 3.0 L V6 engine rated at 150 horsepower and a 3.8 L V6 engine cranking out 155 horsepower and 220 pound-feet of torque. Both engines were paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission. Then the second-generation model (1999-2003) was introduced in the summer of 1998 as an early 1999 model. It then was offered in base, LX, SE, SE Sport, SEL and Limited trim levels as well as the Cargo Van. The 3.0 L and 3.8 L V6 engines were retained but it added a new 4-speed automatic transmission.
Ford Windstar Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
First, engine failure. This is a common problem on any vehicle including the Ford Windstar, but you should be alert about this issue as it may cause fatal consequence to your vehicle. According to some drivers, when the vehicle reached about 100,000 miles, the engine failure would be its main issue. Specific symptoms of this problem include impact noises, excessive engine movement and a rough running or backfiring engine. And overheating due to leaking coolant deteriorate engine performance so that a decrease in power, acceleration and fuel economy arise together. Thus, once these signs even activate the Check Engine Light, you had better inspect the engine mount, motor and transmission mount, intake manifold gasket, crankshaft gear, thermostat and throttle body gasket.
Second, issues about braking, steering, suspension and transmission systems. Every system in the Ford Windstar is crucial for a safe and comfortable driving experience. As time passes by, the problem in braking system in the vehicle would often manifest as rear brakes being locked up, especially on wet surfaces and brake proportioning valve is often the culprit. As for steering failure, you could sense this issue if the steering tilt could not be locked, audible clicking or grinding sounds while turning and roughly operated steering wheel, and the upper steering column bearing should be swapped out. And you can attribute suspension and transmission failures to broken sway bar kit and transmission pan.
However, an overall excellent Ford Windstar needs routine maintenance to sustain. The horn is designed to warn others on the roads of your presence; windshield wipers are used for clearing off debris on the windshield to offer better driving visibility; the door lock actuator is responsible for keeping your property from being stole; the hood latch offers convenience and cabin air filter could filter contaminants in air and vent healthy fresh air into the cabin; all of these are crucial for a safe and comfortable driving environment, thus, you had better put them on your routine maintenance list.
