Yes but you have at least one that's lost air, you should see what the problem is first since you don't know how fast until you locate it and source of leak. To trigger a light it is at least 10# under inflated now. Once you fix light will go out by itself.

It's dangerous to drive it with any light on, especially at night. Any light can distract other drivers or sometimes aeroplane pilots. You want to have your lights off at all times. If you have a light on on your dashboard, you would want to punch your dashboard until no lights work anymore. If your hand begins to hurt from punching it, it is perfectly acceptable to use a tool such as a hammer to… Read More

Please your question is incomplete and I am not able to answer it.
Ford Windstar was created in 1994.
The blower on the back heater may need to be replaced on the 2000 Ford Winstar.
I wish I knew. It was replaced by the Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey Minivan, but as far as I'm concerned, the Windstar was a better minivan comparing it's 2 replacements.
The most common reason the heater is blows cold air on a 1999 Ford Winstar is a bad thermostat or blocked heater core.
I was looking at the 2002 Ford Windstar 0wners Manual ( and the Ford parts website ) and they both show it as being the ( 4 F 50 N ) transaxle ( transmission )
Well the light switch on the wall will make and break the electrical connection, making the light go on and off.

Based on the parts listed at Autozone, I'd say this won't work. The photos indicate the parts are physically very different. Sorry...
Hard to tell if this question is to: Release the tension on the belt for replacement, or Remove the pulley/tensioner for replacement See "Related Questions" below for more about doing both
Hopefully it is nothing more than the light doing it's job: trying to alert you to the oil level needs checking. The Owners Manual will provide detailed information and illustrations for checking the oil in your specific model year. See "Related Questions" below for more

If the question is being asked, I'd guess it's in reference to a 1996 or newer Windstar... It was about that time the traditional radiator cap seemed to disappear from usage. When the radiator cap went away, the "coolant overflow" tank became an integral part of the cooling system instead of just a, well - overflow tank. So now filling the radiator / cooling system is done through the coolant reservoir. Adding Anti-freeze/Coolant When the… Read More
Fuel injectors are not a 'wear item', meaning you don't replace them on a schedule - replace them when - IF - they fail. Surprisingly, injectors are not a common failure on today's engines. A lot like the Engergizer bunny, they just keep going.

Somewhere on the underside of the pump near where the shaft that the pulley is mounted on, there will be a small hole in the pump. This is called a weep hole and water will leak out of there slowly if you have a bad pump.
Directly on top of the transmission. It has the shiny post going through the center of it and 1 electrical connection. Easily accessible

The dashboard *switch* - slide control itself?? Never heard of one of those going bad, but... Start with the dash trim piece - 2 7mm screws at the bottom - alongside the ashtray/cup-holder pull out. The trim piece then unsnaps from the dash. Expect a couple more screws holding the heater controls and wire connection or 2. Pretty straight-forward. If by chance you really are looking how to replace the temperature blend door actuator, that… Read More
Radiators are mounted just behind the front grill and in front of the engine itself. This provides for maximum airflow through the radiator. See "Related Questions" below for more
The term "actuator" isn't very specific, so here's a couple of common examples of door actuators: The mechanism that controls the door locks The little motor the drives the temperature blend door - adjusts the temp up/down. Also a rather (very?) common failure on Windstars & other Ford products. Not a hard, nor terribly expensive repair. See "Related Questions" below for more
The rocker panel will most likely be spot welded into place. The welds will need to be cut, then the new panel spot or tack welded in.
There are 2 screws on each side of the housing - take those out and the entire trim & door will slide off the base of the dash. Piece-o-cake
Turn signal bulbs are in both front and rear of the vehicle. See "Related Questions" below for specific instructions for both fronts and rears.
For a diagram, check places like Autozone.com's free Repair Guide - although I'm not sure they have actual pictures/illustrations of this particular topic. For those who work well with "word pictures", see "Related Questions" below for everything you could ever hope to know about Windstar firing orders, coil pack numbering, engine cylinder numbers, and lots of helpful hints from other Windstar owners.
Don't try and 'self-diagnose' this - take the van to a reputable tire / front-end shop for a professional evaluation. Safety is really at stake here, so don't take extra chances.
There is an ABS wheel sensor mounted on the front steering knuckle - check it out for damage, wiring problem (pinched off or broken?), and the alignment to the end of the axle where the ring of gear teeth are. See "Related Questions" below for more
If you purchase a replacement set specific to the Windstar, they'll be the proper lengths. If you're replacing just 1 or 2, the best thing to do is measure the specific ones involved - but, if you're replacing more than 1, leave / put them back until you do the actual replacement. That'll help avoid misconfiguring the firing order. See "Related Questions" below for more
I broke mine right near the part that screws into the wheel cylinder. I went to Advanced Auto Parts and they had an exact replacement! Cost $24 and had to mess a little with the clip that holds the fitting to the body, but it wasn't too bad.

I believe they are also called (stabilizer bar),they are behind the front tires,1 on each side of course.Usually you start hearing a knocking sound when hitting bumps.People say to exchange both at the same time but not necessary.Get them fixed asap because they wear down the connection area and you don't want them to break while driving because you could lose steering ability.

If you take it to a dealer, it will probably be around $1500. It's a hard job because of the transverse engine.

The SECOND time it happened (years later, but it does keep… Read More

Have the codes read from your van's computer - and then check back here for solutions.
