  5. 96 windstar 3.8 motor swap issues

    Ford Vans, Aerostar, Freestar, Galaxy, Windstar
    Got It fixed. I feel stupid. When I put the tank from the 98 in the 96 the wiring connectors were different, so I spliced the connector on with crimp on connectors and I guess it had failed. It was getting contact intermittently and letting the pump run some but not enough to build up...

  7. 96 windstar 3.8 motor swap issues

    Ford Vans, Aerostar, Freestar, Galaxy, Windstar
    Well I finally got the scanner from my friend and hooked it up. The original pcm from the 96 van threw no codes. I hooked up the pcm that goes to the new motor from the 98 van and it threw the following codes. P0743 torque converter clutch circuit electrical P0453 evaporative emission system...
  8. 96 windstar 3.8 motor swap issues

    Ford Vans, Aerostar, Freestar, Galaxy, Windstar
    R.S., Yes it was just a straight swap. The only difference I came across doing the swap was that the 96 engine had two wires going to the engine coolant temp sensor and the 98 engine only had one wire. Thanks for the link for testing the coil pack. CatSkinner, Yes I still have the pcm...
  9. 96 windstar 3.8 motor swap issues

    Ford Vans, Aerostar, Freestar, Galaxy, Windstar
    R.S., Thanks for the reply. Yes the 98 motor was running fine. It came from a van we had that the transmission went out on. That van was really beat up so I kept the motor and scrapped the rest. The 96 van I got from a friend for $300. It had a rod knocking and I did a quick, cheap, band...

    I just recently swapped the 3.8 motor in my 96 windstar with one from a 98. It is running but not very well. Anyone know of any problems associated with this swap? Thanks, Paul - OzarkCountry

  12. 98 Windstar parts interchange

    Ford Vans, Aerostar, Freestar, Galaxy, Windstar
    Can anyone tell me what year body parts will work on a 98 windstar? After hitting about eight deer and other mishaps, our reliable hauler is looking a little worse for wear. I am going to be replacing both headlights and side marker lights, drivers side tailight, both fenders, front bumper...
  13. '98 Windstar Woes!!

    Ford Vans, Aerostar, Freestar, Galaxy, Windstar
    Finally found out what the problem was. Thought I would post an update in case anybody else was having the same kind of trouble. I dropped the tank and removed the fuel pump assembly and saw that the screws that hold the plastic fitting on top of the plastic canister that the fuel pump is in...

    You're right Bert, I think the code reading will be next up to see where I stand. Thanks again, Paul - OzarkCountry
  15. '98 Windstar Woes!!

    Ford Vans, Aerostar, Freestar, Galaxy, Windstar
    Thanks Bert!! I had tried that and did not have any different results. I may have allready ruined the MAF by hitting it with some spray. When I got it running the first time after it left me stranded I had completely removed the MAF and drove it home without the MAF or air cleaner in place...

    Ford Vans, Aerostar, Freestar, Galaxy, Windstar
    Hey everyone, Well my '98 Windstar 3.8 has decided to have a little hiccup and I need to see if I can get it cured. This vehicle has over 218,000 miles on it and still got 20.8 MPG the last time I checked. It would not restart the other day during a trip to town. Sounded like it was trying...

    Ford Vans, Aerostar, Freestar, Galaxy, Windstar
    Hey Mike, Congrats on the find of the 2000 Windstar and just to let you know, I have a 98 Windstar with 220,000 miles on it that I am running 235/75/15's on stock wheels on all four corners. Like you, the tires came at no cost so I mounted them up. The only thing I had to do was to trim the...
  20. Help replacing front wheel bearings

    Suspension | Wheels&Tires | Brakes
    I need help replacing the front wheel bearings on my 98 Windstar. I have never worked on a front wheel drive before and want to make sure I don't mess anything up. Limited resources necessitate me doing as much of the work myself. I know they have to be pressed in. So far I have removed the...
