I did not think the Windstar came with *front* drum brakes (assuming the question is referring to brakes)...There are instructions for changing front disc brakes and rear drum brakes in the "Related Questions" below

rear brakes need adjustment srar wheel froozen

This is probably due to worn brake rotors on the brakes, if there is no vibration when driving then this will be the cause.

For the brakes, check for warped rotors. For the turning, check for worn CV joints.

If you only did the front brakes, the problem may be in the rear brakes.

You start by adjusting the rear brakes after you have inspected them.

It depends on the type of brakes, labor and brake pads used. This shouldn't cost more than $150-$200.

auto braking system they don't stop , they sort of vibrate so you don't skid.

Yes, all modern rear brakes are designed to be self-adjusting. See "Related Questions" below for more

Check the brakes. You may need new rotors. You didnt say how hard you stand on the brakes because if you are heavy on them it could be the abs unit working properly

User Avatar

your rotors on the front are warped. they need to be turned or replaced.

User Avatar

You have warped brake rotors. Replacement or machine work is required to stop that condition.

I just put new brakes on my 98 Ford Windstar van but the ABS light and the trac active light is still on, and at times the brakes stalls goes all the way to the floor, and the van acts like the wheels are locking up.

User Avatar

No. Your normal brakes will still work even if the ABS Module is bad. You will however have no ABS function.

Defective master cylinder? Frozen caliper? Parking brake cable frozen?

User Avatar

what you have could be one of three problems. Check your reservoir to see if it has plenty of brake fluid, bleed your brakes,they may of lost the fluid while changing brakes. Also, if you have a vacuum leak it will cause your brakes not to work. Or it could be your master cylinder or your vacuum booster that has went bad. brewski

you probly need new pads rotors jeck for dust on the brakes if so blow them clean with a compresor

User Avatar

your brake rotors are warped. You should repalce you brake pads and have the rotors resurfaced if possible, or replaced.

User Avatar

Were the rotors resurfaced or replaced, or just the pads? Warped rotors are the most common cause of vibration when braking

User Avatar

Check for a vacuum leak Check the check valve on the power brake booster

Vibrating brakes are almost always a symptom of worn rotors. When the rotor wears down, or has grooves, the brake pad can no longer make a flush connection with the rotor. This will cause the caliper (which holds the brake pad) to move in and out as it tries to establish a flush connection with the rotor. The rapid movement of the caliper is what causes your brake pedal to vibrate.

Well I seem to have a similar situation.. I would say your 'ping' is a bit of a 'sprong' on my 95 Windstar. Further the brake pedal seems to bind, makes the sound and not engage the brakes.. I can apply more pressure and pass through the bind to engage the brakes or with some pumping of the pedal the binding dissipates and the brakes engage properly.. I was wondering if this is similar to your situation? Unfortunately I do not have the answer; I am on the 'net today looking for information! Should I find any info pf value I will post here..

Those with drum brakes, the bearings are NOT sealed - they are the very traditional type bearingsSee "Related Questions" below for more
