Your wet spark plug tells the whole story. When a spark plug is covered with oil, that is not the spark plug's or ignition system's fault, it is the result of excessive engine wear (valves or rings). I have come across the same problem in older vehicles. There is something called a spark plug non-fouler, which screws into the spark plug hole in the engine block and then holds the spark plug. Make sure to get a long one that will completely hold your (new) spark plug. This should return your engine back to decent operation. You should be able to pick one up at any auto parts store.

Looking on the internet, it appears that your left front wheel speed sensor has gone bad:
C1155 Wheel Speed Sensor LF Input Circuit Failure ABS
C1233 Wheel Speed LF Input Signal Missing ABS
The B2477 error looks like it could be related to the ABS system, and replacing the supposedly defective left front wheel speed sensor should fix all three errors. If you are afraid of doing the job yourself, call a couple of different shops and ask them for a quote for replacing the left front wheel speed sensor. They won't want to at first, but if you insist they should be able to give you a quote for parts/labor for the job.
#53 of 91 99 Windstar P0720
Mar 31, 2008 (5:20 am)
My 99 Windstar has OBDII code P0720 "Output Speed Sensor Circuit Malfunction". Other forums state that this is also called a "Turbine Speed Sensor" or "Output Shaft Sensor", but I am confused as to the location and proper name. One forum stated that on the Windstar it's called a TSS, but another suggested that there are both an OSS and a TSS on the tranny. The challenge here is ordering the right sensor. One online Ford Store lists an "Output Shaft Sensor" for this vehicle, but no "Output Speed Sensor" or "Turbine Speed Sensor". Can someone help clarify things for me?

I just called two Autozones. Sorry to say they don't have a code checker for the ABS Lights only the Check Engine Light. The ABS is a seperate system. We are going through the same thing right now.
You can go to this link to read more on the ABS issues and a new recall on this...... http://www.fordwindstarrecall.info/
Good luck to all of US.
