#749 of 804 just bought 2002 windstar and curious about its hesitation while driving
May 14, 2006 (8:15 pm)
My Wife and I just recently purchased a 2002 Ford Windstar limited with 50,000 miles on it, today while driving on the highway it would hesitate and sputter at around 55. So bought a bottle of fuel injection cleaner and topped off the tank thinking maybe the fuel lines might be a little dirty, but the more we drove today the more we noticed it at different speeds, when it "sputters" my rpms jump about 500 rpms depending where they are already at, but just as quickly as it hicups it corrects itself, I am not a car guy but i am not stupid to cars either, could this be a transmition problem if so will our 30 day powertrain warrenty cover that any help would be appriciated!

check the intake runner assembly this vehicle has the ford sho engine and your intake runner assembly may be switching from the small intake to the large intake thus giving you a huge power surge since the idea was to switch between power and economy.

Is the DPFE sensor hard to change? any advise in parcticular.
Would leaking of an air intake gasket cause the check engine light to come on?

My husband just changed DPFE Sensor and it didn't take too long. Parts America called it a EGR sensor cost $62 there. Napa called it something different * cost $104 there. It took about 15 minutes to change. on the Windstar it was easy to get to.
