problem #2

Windstar 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Getting lean code P0171 and P0174. Dealer analyzed and from what I can tell it's tsb 03-16-1 (NHTSA sb# 16920) I have searched the internet (as you can) and it's a widespread problem (I know 2 other people personally who may have it). It is my belief that there should have been (or should be) a recall on this defect. In my case, the van will lose RPM's, then "rev" up on cold startup. When it does this, the van executes a "jerking" motion which to me could be dangerous. In other cases, it will stall or nearly stall at traffic lights.

  • Automatic transmission

Vehicle was off and parked. Smoke from under vehicle. Disconnected battery to stop fire. Fire at the connection of the ABS computer at site of two 40 amp circuit connections caused ABS system to stop working. ABS and brake light are on all the time, speedometer stopped working, odometer stopped working. I have detailed pictures of the damaged part 2F1Z-2C219-ba connected as part of 1F22-2C346-ac. Code C1185 was present in the ABS computer prior to the fire.
