We have a 2000 Ford Windstar that was in getting the transmission fixed. Since working on the transmission, the car won't start. We gave them both keys and they said they needed to get new keys from the dealership and have them reprogrammed. They still aren't having any luck with the new keys--the shop mentioned something about the "halo" in the computer might be bad. What does this mean and any idea of the cost??

I am assuming that the vehicle ran prior to getting the transmission repaired. If so you should not need any new keys and the computer should be good. The shop doing the work has obviously done something wrong. If it did not run prior to taking it in ... 2000 Ford Windstar

I'm looking to buy a 1994 Ford Taurus. The owners have 1 ignition key, but no door keys and no key fobs. How you loose these, I have no idea! How do I get replacement door keys and remotes?

I have a 2001 Ford Expedition, 4 x 2, with a 4.6L V-8. Whenever the gas in fuel tank drops well below 1/4 tank, it starts to run really rough. The lower the fuel level drops the worse the engine runs, until it gets to the point of hesitating and dying at intersections. I had this problem about 20 years ago on a Ford F-150 pick up. I dropped and flushed the tank, blew out the fuel lines, changed the filter and solved the problem. I took this Ford Expedition to the dealer and asked th
