They always blow the head gaskets between 70 and 100 thousand miles.

38L is 10.04 US gallons.


Five quarts including filter. My owners manual says 5.75, including filter. My experience agrees with the extra .75 quarts! :)


Yes , on a 1998 Ford Windstar the fuel pump shut off switch ( inertia switch ) is in the drivers footwell behind the kick panel by the drivers left foot , by the inside hood release ( there is an access hole in the panel )


haynes repair manuals are good but you can go to autozone.com and they have online repair manuels as well it a good site for a lot of information on repair work.



it's located on the firewall right in back of the intake


Not very easily if at all, and why would you want to?


Yes you can, you will need to buy a y pipe either at autozone or your nearest parts store. You will also need to buy 2 mufflers flowmasters are my choice but you decide what you want. then buy some cool tips and there you go.


If you mean 3.8 Litre engine, the answer is 200 horsepower, from the factory. 225 lb/ft of torque.



there should be a sticker under the hood of the car that tells you what the gapping should be. .60


76l for the first fish and 38l for each additional fish so 266 litres.


Fuel injected. fuel injected. the 3.8 liter was never carb. it was in the 80's in other GM vehicles


Divide 10 by 38. _ _ ._ _ 38l 100 38 can't go into 10 so add a decimal+zero Then do your basic division. This was coming from a 6th grader.


If the gauge is reading full (pinned as we call it) it can be a ground to the sending unit or the wire going to it is broken ,,this will cause this..Sending unit wires are on top of the tank some times you can see it (or the wires that go to it )test them there you'll need a good meter!!If you want to see what it looks like go to a parts shop and get them to show you one


One of the best places to start could be a dealership. If you don't want to go that route you can always look it up using a Haynes or Chilton repair manuals.


It shouldn't idle that high the factory idle setting is around 900 RPM's check to make sure nothing is sticking and check vacuum lines. Good luck fixing your problem.


The mass air flow sensor is located in the throttle body housing on the 3800 engine. There should be 4 screws that hold it down to the housing. Once they screws are removed, the sensor lifts off of the throttle body.


There is not significant difference between rest cardiac output but during the load amateur heart pumps 18-24 l/min, professional heart pumps 32-38l/min.


Where was the leak coming from? the coolant has some pathways that go to the intake. that's to warm up the air.the most important question is where the coolant was leaking from?


Hard to say what a fair price is.Some guys might do it for $100 while others, like me would not do the job, because it will not solve your problem for very long.If those bearing are gone, chances are that the motor will need a complete overhaul. Rather than paying to overhaul an engine, I would buy a long block from advance auto or autozone OR get one from a wrecking yard who will give a guarantee that it runs.Replacing the bearings is just going to be a waste of your money regardless of what someone charges.


I am not sure what you mean by the radiator bypass. But it sounds like you have a loss of vacuum to your AC/heater control. When you have no vacuum to the control, it defaults to defrost. There is only one vacuum supply entering the passenger compartment through a black hose under the hood on the passengers side close to the AC lines where they go through the dash. There is also a vacuum canister right there. See if you have knocked a vacuum hose off right there.


Had the same problem years ago, same year, model. Found the cable at NAPA auto supply, about $30, much cheaper than the GM dealer. Couldn't do the replacement myself, had to have a mechanic do it (it was a B***H). Still cheaper in the long run this way.


What year is the gtp, if 95 or newer yes, if gtp is in the 80's then no due to pollution restrictions today, and may have to change the computers from each vehicle. Each computer is set to specs for the engine it controls.


Well, the transmissions are interchangable, so your good there. But if you put a 3.3l in youll have to change the ECM because they have different settings for the 3.8 and 3.3. So if you change the ECM I think youll be ok. My email is RPplayer73@aol.com
