How do you replace block hearter in 1999 ford wind star?
1. Put the front of the car on jackstands and dis-connect the negative battery cable. 2. Remove passenger side wheel and lower splash guards. Using low profile 3/8" socket wre…nch or breaker bar, remove the serpentine belt from the alternator pulley. 3. Dis-connect the passenger side tie rod from the knuckle. 4. remove the driver side wheel. 5. Get 3 or 4 feet of extensions for your 3/8 socket wrench and feed them through the driver side wheel well to the upper bolt of the alternator. Yo may need to secure the socket & extensions on the bolt from up top then get back down to the driver wheel well, but it's worth the few seconds. Remove the upper bolt. 6. From below the car, loosen the lower bolt, but do not remove. 7. There is a small bracket on the alternator between mounting bolts. Remove the 10mm bolt that secures the bracket to the block. 8. From above, pry the upper tab from the mounting bracket. 9. Below the car, hold the alternator while removing the lower bolt. 10. Dis-connect the electrical to the Alternator. 11. Maneuver the alternator out through the passenger side wheel well. Takes a little thinking, but it'll come out. 12. Transfer the small bracket to the new alternator. 13. Feed the alternator in through the passenger side and make electrical connections. 14. Secure the lower alternator tab and hand tighten the lower bolt. 15. Pivot the alternator up. The upper tab may not easily fit into place. Tighten the 10mm bolt in the center bracket to the block. This will press the upper tab into place. 16. Install the upper bolt and hand tighten. Fully tighten the lower bolt now. 17. Use extensions from the driver wheel well to tighten the upper bolt. Remainder of this project is simple re-assembly. An experienced shade tree mechanic can do this alternator R&R in under an hour after his tools are set out. Answer- 4 cylinder engine If you have one of the 4 cylinder models like I do, its a major PITA. You can get the Haynes manual for the car and that helps somewhat. You really just have to remove the air intake assembly (big black thing on top of engine) to get at the alternator from the top and remove the wires going to it, then you have to drain the oil and remove the oil filter to get at the drivebelt from the side (through the wheel well) and loosen it to the point you can get the alternator out. Hope this helps, otherwise get a Haynes repair manual.
Answer . maybe it is the wrong key ...
Answer . This may not work for your vehicle, this is a generic response. On most cars, there's a supporting ring that you see on the exterior, (usually green and sometime…s it lights up) and then there's the slot part where the lighter plugs into. Well, you need access to back of it, which may be as simple as removing the ashtray, or it may require removing dash parts. Basicly the back part just screws into the front part that keeps it in place. And there will likely be either 2 or 3 (if it's lighted) wires plugged into the back. Make sure you disconnect the battery, or the fuse for the lighter circuit first and then disconnect the wires, and simply unscrew the back from the front part. It will likely just come out after that. Working in the area however is often cramped, and replacing it can be frustrating, take your time and don't get cut up on any sheet metal in there.
There is no simple answer to this. The heater / AC controls span several different modules in the networked control systems. There are multiple "hot" power sources in the syst…em. What is the specific problem?. I don't mean to come off with a flip answer, but this is a very complex system. The best way to deal with it is to purchase a complete set of wiring diagrams for the vehicle. I got mine for next to nothing on-line.
Why when Replacing the battery in a 2001 ford wind star would you have power but theft light is blinking and vehicle will not start whats the problem?
Answer . Depending on if you have the "pats" system. The chip in the key, you may have to reset the system. Try and use all the ignition keys you have. When you try and sta…rt the vehicle, look to see if the security light flashes fast. If it does, then the security system does not read the code. Disconnect the negative terminal on the battery for about fifteen moinutes. place the igition key on and try and start again. If that doesn't work you may have to go to the local dealeer and have the keys reprogramed to the vehicle. Good Luck.
Under the hood. I suggest you research how an engine is made and what the parts are.
It should only cost about $50-$90 to replace the Flywheel of a 2000Ford Windstar, is a person is doing the work themselves. If theyare not it can cost $150+ depending on labor… charges.
Evidently, if you are asking this question, you have never done this before. Listen, this is not something you can follow an individuals instructions on over the internet. It …is just too critical a procedure as well as dangerous if you do not do it correctly. If you can, find someone who has the experience and is reputable who would be willing to teach you. Personally I would not attempt this. Just a personal opinion. We don't want something bad to happen to you or someone in your family.
You need to take off the door covers and then you can easily get to and change the speakers.

What about the condition of the other primary systems / parts: . Spark plugs . Spark plugs wires . air filter . Fuel pressure - high enough?

Since you note that it is an after-market radio, you cannot be sure that it uses the standard Ford retainer clips. See "Related Questions" below. If the radio has a narro…w front trim piece - take it off (They typically break very easily - be gentle!). There are likely to be a spring clip that can released by pressing in with a very narrow 'tool'. Maybe something like a finger nail clipper file or similar.
Should have a "check engine" light on also. Have codes read. Couldbe a misfire code. May need a basic tuneup.
The windshield is literally glued into place. You have to cut through the sealant all the way around the windshield (about 1.5" from where the sealant starts to the edge of th…e windshield". All auto glass places have tools they have modified specifically for this purpose. A 2" wide putty knife would doo the trick with a lot of effort. Once you have severed the sealant all the way around you need to clean off all the remaining sealant from the car surface and lay down a new bead of windshield adhesive. You can then place the new windshield carefully into place and press it into the correct position. Anchor with some wide masking tape in several spots to keep windshield from sliding down. Leave overnight. Remove tape the next morning.
