Maybe he'd give you the $200 and let you keep the tires???
It might be worth close to that $200 as scrap metal.

you can get more then that for just the metal alone....take off the catalytic converter and get at least $50.00 for just that.....strip it and sell the tires.......

#26 of 71 Ford Windstar 95, 3.8L, 160 kl No power
Jan 13, 2008 (7:13 pm)
I've got a Windstar, car is realable, and start on any condition, snow, rain etc.
The problem is that i need to let the car heatup 5 min on bad weather, i've got no Kickdown on hightway, and on the street if i press the gaz pedale, the engine don't give me any boost, or power, it seem that the truck can't breathe it seems that the cataliseur is the probleme or the senseur, i want to change those part, 2 Catalytic on it.
Would that solve the power and the kickdown.

#29 of 71 Vehicle Overheating, gasket burnt on the day of purchase & first Driving.
Feb 21, 2008 (10:58 pm)
This is the first time am attempting to use Ford. I purchased 1995 Windstar GL in Lome Togo just a week ago, but before it could be driven to my Town, the gasket burned on the way, due to overheating. Please what do i do. Now we have not even find the gasket to buy, and the car is still left on the highway in the bush. the part is scarce and very expensive compared to those of other cars. Please how can this overheating be rectified. The temprature guage and the fuel guage needls are never on Zero even when the electrical system is not on; engine is not running and is completely at rest. please help. The vehicle was said to have been imported from America. Could this problem be due to aclimation to African weather?, help me, my mechanic couldnt tell what the cause is.

take some carberator cleaner and spray around the intake gaskets while the engine is running. if you hear the engine idle down or want to die then those dang intake o rings are bad on that one or more than one windstars have a bad problem with those intake gaskets.

I'Ve got some problem trying to find out why my Windstar doesn't have power.
I had problem with the catalitic then decide to simply clean it up in a way, i then change all the sparkplug, and still car doesn't have engin power, it's like the engin can't give me full power.
I know it's a old car and i cant do Kickdown, the transmission is not 100% perfect, the problem is really about power, even on PARK, if i press the gaz pedal, engin wont run smooth, and increase to 4rpm, i can barelly get to 2rmp.
What could be the problem ?
Could it really be about the catalic would it be the best solution to remove them, since they cost a bundle to fix.
I try to punch a hole in them ( sorry i dont have the proper term )
I notice i've got one Catalic sensor or two that are broke, would this prevent the engin to give his full power ?
On the hightway, at 100 or 120 kl, car run smooth, little bump sometime, but overall engin is smooth, but i cant accellarate like any other truck.
