You should check again because either a caliper seal or a line is letting fluid escape and yes it also could be leaking into the booster from seals in the master cylinder un bolt it and push it forward to check for fluid leaking past the seals on the master cylinder also make sure the top is tight on the reservoir also check all the way down the left side from the master cylinder to the rear wheels especially at the proportional valve and and the line block fittings for each wheel there has to be a wet spot on something fill up the fluid and pump the brakes without moving then inspect everything and also make sure you have thick linings on the pads

SOURCE: My 2001 Ford Windstar van seems to be using alot of coolant daily

Possible coolant leak on hot engine parts causing it to evaporate as it leaks. That would definitely invade the cabin air. You would need to carefully check under the hood with the engine warmed up and running.

Also could be a headgasket failure between coolant channels and a combustion chamber. This latter problem sometimes shows itself as vapor at the tailpipe after there should be no more visible. You may also detect the odor of coolant there too.

SOURCE: Replace alternator 2001 ford windstar van

Hi, first you disconnect the battery. then you need to take the belt off by the back pulley. But you don't need to take it all the way off. Just so you get the alternator belt off. I just replaced the one on my 1997. Then you have three bolts, and one small nut to remove . Then put all back together the way you took them off.
Take care

SOURCE: My 2001 For Windstar Vans

Hello, You have debris in the rear brake assembly. The rear wheels have 2 sets of brakes. There are service brakes and Emergency brakes. The sensors that count the wheel revolutions for the ABS system get blinded by loose debris when the Emergency brake pads fall apart.

When you back up, the loose debris shifts from where it was packed going forward and falls in front of the sensors when you go in reverse. You need to have the rear Emergency brakes checked.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

WHY DOES MY WINDSTAR HESITATE AT STOPS AND RUNS ROUGH, I ALSO SMELL FUEL AND NO PICKUP ?


On all vehicles in the 1980's car makers started using computer controlled fuel injection systems and these systems have numerous sensors . These sensors give information to the computer for fuel control. Some of these sensors are the coolant temp. , mass airflow, oxygen sensors, if one of these sensor is reporting wrong information to the engine computer it could cause the symptoms you are experiencing. Along with vacuum leaks, plugged catalytic converters, miss firing spark plugs . Most usually a flashing check engine light will accompany a miss fire. These sensors degrade over time and miles, and it helps to have a diagnostic scan tool to check the sensors outputs to the engine computer. Fuel trims can also be viewed on a scan tool , these short term and long term fuel trims show how much fuel is added or subtracted, positive numbers = adding fuel negative numbers = taking fuel away . So what I'm trying to say here is that these are complex systems and sometimes you need to take them to someone who has the tools and knowledge to fix them !

I have a 2001 Ford Windstar and the brakes went out on me earlier in the week. I was able to nurse it in to a repair shop. They said the wheel cylinder ruptured. They replaced both rear wheel cylinders,...


The vibration could be caused by the engine missing, or otherwise may well be that the emergency brake adjustment wheel was not properly adjusted when the were reassembling the drum brakes in the rear.
You have been ripped off. The problem your van was having did not call for all of the work which was performed, and even if it had, those prices are absolutely out of line with what an honest repair shop would charge.

2001 Ford Windstar is leaking antifreeze


Could be water pump, radiator, freeze plugs, hoses, ect. try and isolate the area by putting a piece of card board down on the ground and line up what is above it. Garages use a pressure tester on the cooling system to see where the leak is. I would guess water pump,or small bypass hose
