The Ford Windstar was minivan aimed at families. At launch it had a 155hp 3.8-liter V6 engine that drove the front wheels through a four-speed automatic gearbox. However, in 1995, a new 150hp 3.0-liter engine was introduced, and the 3.8 was increased to 200hp. The big drawback on this shape of Windstar was the absence of a driver’s side rear door, but this was remedied with the second-generation Windstar that appeared in 1998. It was bigger and more practical for families, and it also proved robust. It gained a great deal of luxury equipment, and lost the 3,.0-liter engine, leaving the 3.8 as the sole choice. The Windstar name was killed off in 2003, although the vehicle continued (albeit with a facelift) as the Freestar from then until 2007. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Ford repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Ford Windstar/Ford Freestar repair manual is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
