prob low on coolant. More then likely though you need to flush the radiator. Because when you rev the system fan forces air into system and cools vehicle somewhat check coolant had this same problem from a leak in my water pump at freeway speeds and being a cool day ran great but during idle almost immediate overheating
3 more things to check
Engine cooling fans are working - fuses, are plugged in, relays working
No , A 1996 Ford Explorer is either rear wheel drive or 4x4 capable or ( All Wheel Drive , available with V8 engine only ) A Ford Windstar is a front wheel drive vehicle
Windstar mini-vans are front wheel drive.
YES , the Ford Windstar is a front wheel drive vehicle
If your check engine light is blinking with the engine running that means an engine cylinder misfire has been detected . You will need to have your Ford Windstar scanned for any trouble codes to help diagnose and then repair the problem . You can drive it in to have it repaired , just drive in a moderate fashion ( avoid any rapid acceleration or deceleration because you can damage the catalytic converter )
The Windstar, Freestar & Monterey are Ford's front-wheel drive mini-vans. The 'Econoline' series of vans and Aerostar are the rear-wheel drive offerings.
front wheel drive
If your check engine light is flashing when the engine is running that means that an engine cylinder misfire has been detected ( if you are going to drive it in for repair avoid any rapid acceleration / braking , you can damage the catalytic converter )
A drive shaft is a connector device that basically transmitts power from the engine of a vehicle to its other end to make them work. As the engine starts working, the drive shaft starts rotating, setting the rear end of the vehicle in motion.
what the number of the fuse on window 95 windstar diver side
On a 1999 Ford Windstar : The warning light ( that looks like an engine ) located above your engine temperature gauge is the " CHECK ENGINE " warning light . It comes on if something is effecting the engine emission controls . If it stays on , drive it into a professional or if it starts flashing that means an engine cylinder misfire has been detected and you need to avoid any heavy acceleration or deceleration until you have it repaired
It depends on what you have set-up for the computer to boot-up. A normal setting is for it to boot from the hardrive or if you are on Linux the setting normally is; BOOT-UP LINUX *-Disk Drive *-USB Ports(sometimes, but not normally) *-Hard Drive *-Floppy Disk
The oil gets thinner. It is normal for the oil pressure to drop after the engine has reached full operating temperature. If you have from 30-40 psi pressure when the engine is hot then that is normal.
"safe to drive" - sure, this isn't going to cause the engine to blow up or break-down.Run poorly, sure, but not fatal to the mechanicals
Yes, It should be an Aerostar.
The engine light comes on when the computer receives information from the various sensors that something is "not normal".If those bad readings go away - so will the Check Engine light - after a few "drive cycles".By the way, those bad readings, or Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) are not erased when the light goes off - they can still be read by a scanner.This is very good information to have in figuring out the *cause* of engine problems.See "Related Questions" below for more
There are many different causes of poor vehicle performance. Here are some examples. If the engine RPMs are high but the vehicle will not reach normal speed then there is a problem with the engine's connection to the drive line. If the engine is running rough it will not be able to produce a normal amount of power. If the exhaust is plugged the engine will not be able to breath. There are many more possible causes.
yes you can

This v6 engine has the traditional front-wheel drive 'transverse' mounting. This means the exhaust manifolds are on the front (towards the radiator) and back (facing the firewall) sides of the engine.The exhaust manifold is made of heavy cast iron and directly beneath where the sparkplugs mount.
If a Ford Windstar only drives in neutral, it may be due to a blown fuse. It will be best to check the neutral safety switch or brake pedal switch.

Check your fluid levels, and if all is topped up, and everything sounds and feels normal, drive away.
