Why did the EGR valve for the 2000 Ford Windstar start to work again just before bringing it in to be fixed?

A EGR valve can stick 'open' due to carbon build-up and although is may seem a fluke, it will stick open again causing the rough idle that you had before. Chances are it will get worse, so I would recommend that you do replace it. I hope this helps you. Mark

No. It must be fixed before you can wear it again.

As you did before, you will have to have the trouble codes read again.It's possible the same problem has come back - in that case the mechanic who did the original work, is who you turn to next.But - it well could be a different problem.Have the codes read again...

When the OD (I'm assuming OD = Over Drive) flashed on my 99 Ford Windstar, it was the transmission going out. $2,500 later, it was fixed and never had an OD problem again! Good luck!

Fixed cost remains fixed upto certain range or level of production and then take a step upward and remain fixed again for a certain range and this process continues.

Customer had a similar problem with a 99 Windstar. Stopped pulling while driving it. Had it towed to me and I replaced the torque convertor. Problem fixed.

It will be a lot more stressful for your cat if you get her fixed while she is in heat because she will be confused why she doesn't feel that way all of the sudden, so it'd be better if you got her fixed before she had her first heat or when she wasn't in heat. But no, it's not possible for her to be in heat once she is fixed, though again, she may be confused.

If your dash lights and radio are flashing on and off on your 2003 Ford Windstar, you have an electrical problem that needs fixed. You can start by removing the dash and ensuring all wires are properly secured.

Just replacing a sensor that was the source of a 'trouble-code' doesn't mean the true *cause* of the problem was fixed.It's really important to research those trouble codes *BEFORE* replacing sensors.It's time to go back and have those codes read again and then learn about what causes them.See "Related Questions" below for more

Before eg. The television has broken, therefore I will get it fixed.

If it sprayed before it was fixed, it is possible it will spray after wards, but the incidents will be less frequent and should eventually stop. If it never learned to spray before it was fixed, it won't spray - the urge won't be there and it won't know how to do it.

User Avatar

Yes, that can happen. If she was spraying in the house before she was fixed, neutering her will not break the habit.

You should think about changing your air filter annually or every 15,000 miles for preventative maintenance. You can go to anywhere you get your car fixed to do it.

Fixed cost become relevent cost when a particular decision affects the fixed cost of production. For Example: Before Decision fixed cost $100 After Decision Fixed Cost $120 so in this case fixed cost also becomes relevent for decision making.
