I bought a new starter 3 weeks ago and it was a "rebuilt"unit from ford. Ford has stated that the lead wire on the starter has been corroding on most of these models. You now have to cut off the wire on your wiring strip it and crimp it to the new wire on the starter and then cover it with heat shrink tubing to keep the gunk out. Van ran great for awhile now it won't start. All relays are functioning all fuses are good, and fuel pump shutoff( the inertia switch) are all good. I think the next thing I'm buying for this van is some C4 to fix it for good.....
I have a 2000 windstar that I had the intake manifold, O rings, valve cover gaskets, synchronizer and cam sensor replaced on almost two years ago and about 5 months ago my van started dying when I started it. Not the same problem as before when I had the work done, it does not die when I am in motion but only right after I start it and when I am idling. My husband pulled the MAF sensor and replaced it with one that was used and it worked for about a week and then started dying again. He is convinced that the MAF sensor is the problem because unplugging it allows the van to start and run and not die, however it makes me uncomfortable to drive it like that because the engine will thunk when its still cold so I plug it back in. Could this actually be the problem?
