Hi Brenda, I'm glad to help!
\012Hi again Brenda, it possibly could be one of the drive axles. You see when the CV Joints in the axles go bad the sometimes break and cause the noises you are describing. I would check the axles first, look at the boots on the axles and see if they are torn and grease is all over the area. Hope this helps and have an awesome day again Brenda.

I installed a Transmission from a 2000 Windstar into my 1998 Taurus. It shifts forward and reverse fine. Can I put the VSS from my 1998 Ford Taurus AX4S into the transmission from a 2000 Ford Windstar AX4S and will it report correctly to the PCM? I know the gear range might be different, but could care less. The transmission from the Windstar has a cover over where the VSS goes. Is the plastic gear still on the output shaft of the Windstar AX4S for the VSS? The Windstar AX4S also has another co

I have trouble with the transmission. My Ford Windstar 1998 has 114 000 km. It seemed to be stuck on the second gear. I had up some 'special transmission oil' very thick and it seemed to help because the first gear now works. I will flush the transmission this week and had new transmission oil and change the filter. Will it solve the problem ? I have done some research on the Internet and it seams that it's a commun problem with the Ford Winstar model.

I have a 03 ford windstar just recently had the transmission rebuilt. driving down the high way trasmission started slipping pulled over all the fluid was running out onto the ground. towed it back to the repair shop they said that antifreeze was in the transmission that the radiator corroded and filled the transmission with antifreeze that what pushed all the fluid out. does this sound possible with the trans having a pump on it seems like this would be the other way around

3.8L Ford Windstar with automatic transmission. When first started, the transmission will go into gear, forward or reverse, and I can drive for a time.
