1996 Ford Windstar GL 3.8L from North America
Our head gasket went just over 100,000 km. Ford is of no assistance. We put a rebuilt engine in - cost approximately $4000. Our Windstar was manufactured in September 95 - three weeks after warranty for 95's extended warranty ran out.
Unfortunately, since we got it back we worry - what will happen next, we also cannot afford to trade with this expense hanging over our head.
This happened in March 2001, we continue to make any contact we think may help. If you have a similar story, please comment. We need all the information and support we can get.
We have enjoyed having the Windstar until this year. The ride is very comfortable, if they can get the problems fixed we would consider another.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I had my head gaskets replaced 3 years ago after they failed and the engine failed today just 62,000 km later. I would assume the two are related.
Water everywhere. I did not know if there was an option to get the engine replaced at the time? I should have!
