THIS POST MAY EXPLAIN MY STAND

http://www.2carpros.com/questions/2007-ford-taurus-tune-up

NOT EVER HAVING "DONE" A WINDSTAR, I HAVE DONE QUITE A FEW ON OTHER VEHICLES (MOSTLY OLDER)

THE HARDEST THING YOU WILL PROBABLY ENCOUNTER IS ACTUALLY GETTING TO THE PUMP TO DO IT....COLD BE EZ, OR IT MAY BE A REAL PAINA MANUAL REALLY HELPS AND ALSO GIVES YOU DETAILED INFO ON TORQUE SPECS AND SUCH...YOU KNOW, IMPORTANT STUFF, TO GET IT EXACTLY RIGHT!

OTHER THAN THAT I HAVE ALSO FOUND SOME SIMILAR STUFF (THIS DEPENDS ALSO ON HOW KNOWLEDGEABLE THE PEOPLE ARE, YOU MUST MAKE THE CALL!) IF I HAD SEEN A REALLY GOOD ONE, I WOULD HAVE SUGGESTED IT.....BUT I HAVE NOT EXPLORED THE WINSTAR STUFF SORRY! I DO SUGGEST WATCHING SEVERAL, TO GET A "FEEL"

CHANGE MY SEARCH WORDS---WATCH THE SUGGESTED VIDEOS ON THE SIDES---YOU MAY FIND BETTER VIDEOS. YOU MIGHT TRY THE YEAR AND SIZE ENGINE IN THE SEACH

THIS AIN'T LIKE PUMPING GAS...IT'S A BIT INVOLVED

HELP AT ALL?
