Ford Windstar Emission Light

Q. I have a 2000 Ford Windstar, 3.8 liter, OHV, V-6. It is an automatic with 37,000 miles. It is fuel injected with ABS, P/S and A/C. The vehicle starts fine. It will idle fine and increased rpm's are smooth until about 4,000 rpm and then it hesitates, and jumps quickly. When I let off the gas the idle is between about 500 and 1,200 rpm and the idle is up and down, hesitating.

The emission check light has come on and there is a faint smell of exhaust when we turn off the engine. This all happened suddenly. I wonder if it is the fuel filter perhaps having water in it and the fuel is not getting through. The emission's thing bothers me though, so I wonder. Any suggestions would be appreciated.


A. The emissions warranty on your van is 5 year/50,000 miles. I would let Ford handle it for you.
