1996 Ford Windstar GL 3dr Minivan
Call me an idiot but I bought another
3.8 engine. I have a Ford Thunderbird
with 3.8 engine and had the head
gaskets replaced and now I'm changing
the head gaskets on a 96 Windstar.
Neither case has ford offered to help.
I find it very funny that they say it
is because of maintenance. I do my own
maintenance. I changed the oil every
2,000 miles on the Thunderbird and
followed the maintenance manual for
flush and fills of the anti-freeze. My
advice to anyone is stay away from
Fords. If you do buy a Ford stay away
from the 3.8 engine.
