1998 Ford Windstar 3dr Minivan


Our fam of 5, often drives from Denver to Spokane. We got the windstar after the trans on our explorer went out in the middle of WY, 100's of miles near nothing in the middle of the night. This week on the van we replaced the R&P, for DIY's this is inexpensive but difficult 100.00. And the power steering pump, a little difficult but inexpensive 60.00. The ABS light goes on and off for no reason. Dome lights don't always turn off, and door ajar stays on. Cruise control went out after it surged to 95, like the throddle got stuck. Shifts really hard. Lots of room for the kids, not much room for baggage in the back. You have to drop the engine to change plugs, wires

Best Features

Confortable, roomy for the passengers. Pretty good gas milage on trips. Like that you can take out both rows of seats in the back if you need to. Side pockets in the back for snacks, diapers and toys to keep kids happy. AC.

Worst Features

Wish had a CD player, sterio difficult to change out. And all of the other problems. Hope the Trany doesn't go out on me (since everyone else has that complaint). Paint peeling. Also, there are metric and standard bolts on the engine, sometimes on one part, making it difficult to work on
