I have 2 questions. I replaced the spark plugs on my windstar less than 1000 miles ago. I replaced the motocraft with bosch platinum plugs. They are already fouled out to the point that it's skipping very badly. The haynes manual diagram seems to show ash deposits caused by additives. I don't use additives and can't imagine them building up that fast. Any suggestions?
second question, where is the blower motor for the rear a/c located. Mines not blowing.

Thanks
Ron

First off, go back to the Motocraft. That is Ford's choice for a reason. Do the fouled plugs look black/dirty or do they still look fairly new? Could have worn piston rings or valve seals, that will foul plugs very quickly.

No they're gray, dirty, and I had scrape the crud off of one with a knife. I have a hunch it's valve seals. Thanks for the info.
