computr locationit behind the inde cowling cover next to the gas pedal?

I'm not sure, but i think the windstar (99) has two seprate computers, one is on the fire wall, and one is in front of hte passenger seat, under the glove box

the pcm is under the wiper cover on the pass side i just replaced one.

It is on the right-hand side and is only accessible from the engine bay. You have to remove the plastic cover against the windshield and remove the metal windshield wiper assembly. It is not difficult.

How does the onboard computer of a 2000 Ford Windstar SEL calculate that you need to change the oil?

You program the "computer" for a specific mileage between filter changes. It will display a message when it is nearing time for a change. See the owners manual for steps to program the computer module (instrument cluster module0. Carl On the Windstar, the default calculation is on Ford's recommended mileage interval - 5,000 miles. It is possible to over-ride that and set a shorter mileage interval. Those instructions are also in the Owners Manual (See "Related Questions" below)
