No. You can get a Free scan at Autozone or Oreillys. You may be able to fix the problem yourself. If you do not want to work on your van you can use the information from the free scan as a second opinion. You would then be assured the proper repair will be made at the Repair place of your choice when they tell you the same thing.

It will take a bit to get the "air " out of the system, but should be ok. Keep an eye on it, as you probably have a leak.

It's possible your blend door is not opening. check the actuator part #14 in figure below. Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6235876-no_heat_fan_blowing_cold_air and let me know if you have questions.

Fuelpump secondary circuit high. First try changing fuel filter, it is probably plugged which is over working your fuelpump. If filter was or is changed & problem persists will most likely need to change fuelpump.

You may find one at a salvage yard in the glove compartment of a vehicle. You could also try ebay. Lots of people sell them on ebay.

I would suggest in getting a service manual for this level of detail.
They cost abit, but it's well worth it. Pepboys or Autozone both carry most of them.

Good luck.

One of your ABS sensors are probibly in need of replacement.

There are four of them,they look like a small round cylinder that sits right up next to a Gear looking thing called a harmonic ring the ring is attatched to the cb boot right up next to the inner wheel, you will need to figure out which one to replace.

First of all simply locate them on each wheel, front and back, and check the wireing harness and plugs for dirt. make sure they are clean. and start the engine again. the ABS light should go off if they are working. " I like to use some brake cleaner to clear the plugs" just maks sure they are dry before plugging them back in.

Also make sure they are good and tight. If you can see the harmonic ring, check it for damage and make sure it has all it's teeth.

Otherwise I'd make sure they are not damaged or missing. on the front, they are located just under the brake caliper. On the rear, they are attatched to the backs of the drum assembly.

Although they are in real tight, they are usually only held in with one screw. Just be real careful not to damage them with a screwdriver while inspecting them. If you need to get one, I found them on ebay for around $30-50 ea.. and I used a deadblow hammer and simply tapped it in very carfully after cleaning the hole..

Good luck..

have someone listen to your gas tank while turning the key from off to run. if theres no sound, goto the rear passenger side fender cover and remove (inside the van) theres a little red button down in the rear corner. check to make sure its pushed in (inersia switch for fuel cutoff). also check fuses. if you hear the pump check, the fuel filter.

1997 Ford... | Answered on Jun 21, 2010

Check the position, description and AMP about fuses in your Ford-Windstar-Owners-Manual

Also, its possible that you have activated the Theft System; for details about disarm check your Ford-Windstar-Owners-Manual.

sounds like you should check the compression on number 1 cylinder it should be about 125. if it is than chances are you need to replace number 1 injector.
