There is a sensor usually telling you when the fuel tank pressure is not what it should be. This is another reason to turn the car off while fueling. When the car is running and when you take the gas cap off it will throw a loss of fuel pressure code. This needs to cleared with code scanner tool. Make sure the gas cap is back on. Twist until it clicks. I have had to clear this for my mom's expedition several times. Got to love mom.

Engine oil over fill where will it leak?

If you have over filled your engine oil, it will not "leak" unless you have completely filled the engine with oil and is pouring out where you put it in.

Why do you get a stong smell of gas when you start and idle your 2002 windstar in the morning It was worse the morning after you filled the tank?

This is a potentially serious problem. It could be a fuel leak either in your fuel line or your EGR system. That is the worst scenario. The second could be you over filled your tank and it forced fuel up the return lines from your engine. If that is the case you will just have to live with it for a bit. When the gas pump shuts off that is when you stop filling the tank. Much more and you put too much fuel in the tank.

You need to check and see if the radiator is full. Do it when it is cold. If not, then fill it to the top and install the cap. Then be sure the coolant recovery tank is half filled. Start the engine and let it reach operating temperature. The cooling fans should come on. If not you will need to get it repaired. When the air conditioner is on the engine cooling fan should also be running. If not then get it repaired.
