3.8L FWD - Ford Stinks
By ca2stay on
1996 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan
Had a 91 Taurus (3.8L FWD) tranny @ 25k
& 54k miles. Traded in for 96 Windstar
LX 3.8L FWD. Tranny started giving
trouble slipping @ 50k and finally
replaced @ 90k $3k, head gaskets @ 85k
$2k and engine still runs poorly,
radio/CD @ 50k. Fortunately w/tow
package & 4W Disc Brakes so none of the
brake pblms my frinds w/drum brakes
had. Now CV joints and the rest of the
steering and suspension.
My wife's next vehicle will be Japanese.
I won't put any more money into it.
fool me once shame on you, fool me
twice shame on ME.
