Basically early fuel injection system used 2 types of air intake sensors. One if called air flow meter or AFM,the other is manifold absolute pressure sensor or MAP. Only either one is used. Never both. AFM usually sits very close to the air cleaner even sometimes is attached to the air box. MAP sits closer to intake manifold and use the engine vacuum to measure pressure.

SOURCE: 1998 Ford Windstar AC compressor

They get more than warm, but not excessively hot that you can't touch it. This can be caused by a faulty condenser fan motor, dirty condenser coil even low freon, which is my guess along with a dirty condenser. Check these two issues and if it's not the problem your compressor may be getting ready to die. because of internal issues with the motor windings. Make sure the fan is running to speed, clean the condenser and see if the larger copper pipe to the compressor is ice cold and sweaty, if not you may need freon

SOURCE: illustrated diagram on how to remove speed sensor for windstar 98

The Vehicle Speed Sensor is located on transaxle, at the rear of the engine. I would check the harness connector to be sure it is clean and connected tightly. Also check the wiring for cuts and chaffing. Since it is fairly inexpensive, only about $42.00 from Ford, you may want to consider replacing it, at least to eliminate it as a possibility. You may want to go to a muffler shop to have this done like speedy, I believe the flex pipe needs to be undone to get to the VVS. If there is an Auto Zone around your area, you could always ask them for the step by step instructions to replacing the VVS, and it's free of charge. Good luck and hope this helps.

Its located in the air filter housing....The volume air flow sensor also incorporates the barometric pressure sensor and the air intake sensor....If you are replacing either of these sensors replace the volume airflow sensor.......

Symptoms of a weak fuel pump 1998 Ford Windstar


more likely to be a sensor, so attach it to a OBD11 code reader.

Fuel pumps either have enough pressure or they don't. Not enough pressure and the car won't start. If it falls low in motion, the vehicle stops.

I have a 1998 Ford Windstar with a 3.8 liter engine. Where is the crankshaft sensor


The crankshaft position (CKP) sensor on the 1998 Windstar with 3.8L is located near the crankshaft pulley on the front cover. There is a shield mounted over the CKP sensor that you'll need to remove to access the sensor.

Would you care to share why you suspect the CKP sensor is bad? Typically with Fords a bad CKP will cause a no-start condition due to no spark, but you'll still hove good fuel pressure.

Well code 1450 for a Ford product is a problem with the gas tank venting system.
I would think the pump in the tank is blowing the fuse, and it could be from excessive pressure in the tank.

do you mean the wires that go to the plug on bottom of master cyl or the plug on the side of master cyl ?
the wires to the plug on the side of the master cyl are to the brake fluid level sensor.
the wires to the plug on bottom of the master cyl are to either a brake pressure switch or a brake pressure transducer.
