Best Answer

Vacuum leaks at the intake manifold gaskets, which causes the vehicle to run lean and cause the check engine light to come on. This is usually caused by a poorly designed baffle in the front valve cover that allows oil past into the PCV system ,and into the intake manifold which softens the gaskets and makes them leak. There is a redesigned valve cover to correct this. Raise the hood and see if the front valve cover is black(origional problem cover). If it has been changed to the new design valve cover, which is an unpainted aluminum cover(new design), then the intake gaskets may have already been replaced as well.

Where are the heater and cooling fan fuses in the 1999 windstar ford?

If you are having any heating or a/c issues in your Windstar, be sure to check your blend door for functionality FIRST. The most common issue with heat or A/C in the late model Ford windstar is a broken blend door. A broken blend door actuator is almost as common as a broken blend door itself. Typically, the fix requires disassembling the entire dash and replacing the whole plenum box, which can be a costly repair.

If you are having heater/air conditioning issues in your Ford Windstar, the first thing to check should be the blend door. Broken blend doors are the main cause of heating issues in this vehicle. The Blend Door actuator on the Ford Windstar can be found by removing the glovebox. A broken blend door actuator is almost as common as a broken blend door itself. Typically, the fix requires disassembling the entire dash and replacing the whole plenum box, which can be a costly repair.

I have a 1979 Jeep CJ-7 with a 3 speed T-150 Transmission. It was rebuilt head to toe with a fiberglass body. The transmission was rebuilt as well. I have recently had issues getting it into gear?

A T150 is a top loader, so cannot be a linkage problem, but could be a clutch linkage problem. You didn't say if it ground gears, or was just tough to pull into gear. Anyway, check clutch adjustment.

How does a recall work?

The manufacturer issues a notice to the stores that carry it's product alerting them to remove the product from the store shelves. The manufacturer will then notify the media (T.V. and Radio and newspapers) and run announcements to the general public that if they have bought any of the product, they can return it where they bought it for a refund. In the case of a car recall, the company will usually have the addresses of the people who bought their cars, and they will send a letter to each person notifying them of the recall.
