2001 Ford windstar stalling problems. After

2001 Ford windstar stalling problems. After driving it for 25 minutes and go into a store for 15 minutes the car starts fine, then I drive a short distance again and when I come out of the store and start it again it stalls. Sometimes it takes 2 to 3 tries to get it started. This happens mostly in hot weather and when the car is hot. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Have your idle speed sensor cleaned,also checkd the air flow sensor located in the air cleaner housing,you best bet is to have it scanned for PCM soft codes(codes that wont turn on the check engine light on)

2001 ford windstar stalls sometimes at stoplights, cleaned idle control sensor, works better, but plan to replace for under $100 for part, two bolts on top of throttle body, easy fix, also replaced throttle postion sensor for $22 easy fix, fuel economy went up 5mpg.

2001 Ford Windstar PCM (Powertrain Control Module) is located behind the dash panel on the passenger side. The harness is accessed from under the hood. The PCM is accessible from the floorboard.
You can have it out in less than 15 minutes with minimal effort.

2001 FORD WINDSTAR stopped heating


Check top rad hose for heat. When enging has been running for 10-15 minutes, shut off engine and feel top rad hose. It should be very warm if not hot to the touch. If it is not hot, Change thermostat. It is located under housing that top rad hose mounts to on engine. You can get a eplacement at any auto parts store. Get a failsafe one. If it fails it does so in the off position only and will not cause overheating problems if it fails.
If rad hose is hot it is a problem with your heater, possibly plugged
