I have a 98 Windstar (3.8L)and the Vehicle Speed Sensor (code p1538) is located just above the transaxle passenger (right) side and is accessible from the passenger side (right) front wheel well. Although it is simple to remove and replace (one bolt and one electrical connector), it is not simple to get to unless you have a hoist. You have to lift up all four wheels and disable the auto-levelling suspension first. Then you have to remove the right front wheel and the rear wheel well panel to get to the part. Because I did not have a hoist (or four jack stands) I had pep boys do the work (about $50.00 labor). The part at auto stores runs about $15.00 if you have electronic (digital read-out) odometer, or about $28.00 if you have manual (or analog) odometer. However, mine turned out to be different alltogether and I had to buy the dealer part (none other would fit) for about $48.00. Turn Key at Pep Boys was about $100.00 Finally, make certain the new part has a new O-ring to prevent leakage. If not you might be have more problems down the road. All the ones I looked at (AutoZone and Pep Boys) came with the O-ring.

The Windstar most likely has a part that is breaking down when it heats up. Check the ignition coil and crank position sensor to start trying to find the problem.

I spent over an hour trying to loosen the one bolt that holds the speed sensor in place. Finally I removed the exhaust pipes and had it replaced in five minutes.

Usually, the vin number on any car is visible thru the windshield on the drivers side. This is done to help anyone trying to locate it.

It is on the top of the rear axle. You remove the nut that holds the brake line, remove the hold down bolt, and pull sensor out.

Check the crank sensor, it's most likely bad. also the crank sensor cad take out the cam sensor. Could be fuel starvation: * Plugged fuel filter * Under-pressured fuel pump - starting to fail See "Related Questions" below

You mean the Throttle Position Sensor... If you are trying to find it, its real easy, Locate the throttle cable that's attached to the throttle body, the TPS is located right across from that, you cant miss it.

After thinking about this a bit it has to be on the starter, which is on the lower left side of the engine. I was trying to confuse this with the starter relay which Ford has long mounted up on the fender and makes things easy to locate starting problems.The solenoid is located inside the starter.
