I also have a 95 Windstar. I have replaced mine twice already. You have an electronic speedometor. The last one I replaced cost roughly $300 dollars and didnt last. Now the speedo bounces all over the place. I use the tach for speed indication mostly now. I replaced the last one at 29,000 miles. I currently have roughly 190,000 on van now. A2: They are mechanical. The reason they jump is because the cable gets dry and corroded. I have fixed several, all high mileage. Keep searching I wrote a little more detailed description in another thread for a 96.
How to replace spedo cable f250
they don't have speedo "cables". their all electric.
You could disconnect the cable down at the transmission, drive it around, and see if the noise has quit. Some cars don't have a cable-the speedo is electronic, so then you might have a vacuum leak somewhere under the dash.
If it is like my 94, there is no cable, it is electronic. Run1
No. The speed sensor is located on the transmission, and is what drives the speedometer cable, which drives the speedo head. The speedo head is another name for the the speedometer, which is the display gauge that you see while sitting in the car.
I have talked wth 4 other people who own the 96 windstar and theirs all do it too...Just another ford mess up !!! A2: I had a 95 that did it and I pulled the speedo head out and lubed the cable. This solved the problem. Once you have the head removed you can pull the internal cable out lube it and reinstall. Of course mine was a mechanical speedo. I am not sure on a 96 but I think it is manual also. Where the cable goes through the firewall near the brake master cylinder the cable has a place you can separate it by unscrewing a connector. Without doing this it is virtually impossible to remove the head. Believe me I tried before I figured that out. Then it was easy. Good luck. MGL

6 spark plugs
If you want to change the bulbs behind the speedo dial, then there are four screws, two at the top and two at the bottom of the dashboard dials. Then remove the cover rim that holds the dial and you should find again another four screws, two to the left and two to the right. Once you remove those, you should be able to pull the dial and you will see there are two cable connectors and the speedo meter cable sticking at the back. Carefully pull to the back the cables and speedo cable by pressing the holder pin. At this point you should have the speedo dial detached and at the back you should see the bulb connectors that you have to twist to the left and pull out. There are many of them so you might need to check if they light before you disconnect the cables.
Could be the head gasket. Very common problem with this engine and model year Windstar.
Does it turn over? Getting fuel? Getting spark?
Maybe, 95 windstar has a different plug for transmission shift and the netrual safety switch ,But the plug for the trans can be changed,also you must have both in front of you to compare.95-97 ,98-01,your trans is an AX4N and uses syn fluild,,the car computer makes the trans shift.95 is an AX4S,I think it will work but as always you will have things to deal with.

You don't have to take out the instrument cluster or steering wheel. If you take off the panel below the steering wheel, you can see up and behind the instrument cluster. The speedo cable is attached to the gauge with a white plastic clip, which can be gently pried off with two flathead screwdrivers. Then you can pull it through the firewall.
