I had similar problems with my 2000 windstar. Check under the master cylinder for
the brakes. There is a switch connected that was leaking brake fluid and shorting out the speedometer,odometer, and A/C. I replaced the switch for $25.00 and all is fine now, except for the ABS light which I think needs to be reset by ford. (but I dont dare bring it there for reasons of them finding other problems). Try that, it worked for me.

it's good(?) to see that I'm not the only one with some of these problems...
I've had the gears stripped on my air/heat actuator...changed that myself ...part $75...
My system too registers that it is running lean....check engine light stays on...
and for the last few months, the driver window doesn't work right...if it is 80 degrees outside, it works fine....otherwise forget it...
saw a question on the price of the motor for the driver window, but never saw a response...anyone know how much they cost??

Aug 06, 2005 (12:59 pm)
Hi My name is Loony and I have the unfortune of owning a Ford. I just replaced my transmission (with only 48000 miles) and now there is a sort of pulley that has semed to separate. It's on the passenger side towards the bottom. To start can anyone tell me what that pulley would be? I can't seem to find any online diagras of the pulley systems. The van runs but it makes a ridiculously LOUD, very fast clacking noise. Ideas??? And hopefully there cheap ideas because the transmission issue has blown a hoel in my wallet!

Thanks they changed the switch but that hasn't stopped it from blowing fuses I have to take it back to have them go through the wiring harness because they say it is shorting out in the wires. The mech disconnected the Cruise control and it runs fine right now except the rear air really sucks now. Hopefully this will be covered under warranty I still owe way to much on it to try to trade it off.

It is more than likely your A/C compressor clutch assembly. There are some aftermarket items that will let you run without the A/C but I think that all of them would require removal of the A/C. If you remove the A/C you will have to take it to a shop and they will remove the refrigerant with a machine. They would also be able to put the refrigerant back into your unit. Compressor clutch assemblies go for around $180.00 (Detroit area) and if the compressor is toast then it's about another $250.00 - $300.00.

Greetings, I have a 95 Windstar with DTC PO171 & PO174 (System (adaptive fuel) too lean Bank 1 & 2). When I start the engine it surges. I changed the fuel filter but it didn't make a difference. Anyone have any advice? TIA!
