I think ( if it is a manual gearbox) your clutch has gone OR ( if it is an automatic ) the connecting plate between flywheel and gearbox is broken...

Very common on this make and model trans, pump drive splines inside torque converter strip out and pump is not turning, Most times there is no damage to pump shaft. Remove trans and remove torque converter, inspect the splines at the very bottom of the hub hole. If stripped out inspected pump shaft splines which are the smaller center splines coming out of trans, if ok replace torque converter and re-install trans, change out fluid, clean any metal from magnet and replace filter, fill with fluid and verify proper operation.

Hi, I have a 98 Windstar that recently began having transmission problems. When we first drive it starts out fine but once we've driven several miles it will get stuck in 2nd gear.


The switches inside need to be replaced they are hanging up do this now before you ruin the clutches it will go back to normal shifting and work fine change all pressure torque lockup and shift switches diy for about 125.00 with fluid filter cost and back to normal shifting and a happy van and crew make sure vans not running hot burning fluid otherwise will happen again high temp burned fluid damages switches ability to work

2000 ford windstar will not turn on


when u changed the ECM did you have it matched to the PCM or immobiliser ? , normally these need a Pc to reset these to the motor
you should have a small and large power lead going to the starter motor, when you turn key to crank position the small feed on starter should power up,if not check that happens at the ign switch, or it may be if your car is an auto the switch in the gear selector may have gone , or if manual the clutch pedal switch ,

2002 Windstar wont go into gear


These are common for the pump shaft splines stripping in the torque converter. The transmission will need to be removed to fix it. Before you condemn the trans, does the speedo move and the van doesn't or do you hear any grinding when you put it back into park? Or can you push the van in park (Broken CV shafts)?

Ford windstar van, 2003


I had a small plastic piece replaced in the transmission and it solved the problem(2007). My car was still under warranty, so it only cost me about $100.00. The actual cost was closer to $900.00 because of the labor involved. I used the Ford Dealer in Schulenburg, Texas. They would know exactly what you are talking about, if you ask them.
