Check your hoses. Also run the car for about 5 minutes, let it warm up and see where its leaking from. Likely somewhere around the radiator.

Exhaust leak, if its just water. There is no system in your car that uses pure water.

Even with an exhaust thats only a month old?..damn the exhaust was sounding kinda airy. But my intake manifold cracked again so I guess its time for a new one. So annoying -__-

You say your intake manifold cracked right? That's what the windstar swap does. It replaces your stock intake manifold. Looks way better and is superior performance wise.

Not to sure. You can go to the junkyard and find the intake. You'll need some other things but my memory is a little foggy. I know that it won't clear the hood without some custom fabbing but it's easy. Use the search feature on here to find more info

How much does it usually cost to do a wind star swap? And can I do it myself?

Nobody does now. You have to find someone willing to put one together for you for a nominal fee, or do it yourself. It is a shame Vap does not anymore.

Not to sure maybe $100 to $200 depending on how cheap you get your parts. You can do it yourself but you would need to find a machine shop or something to get the parts you need. Try looking online for a parts list

if you go to VAPauto.com/windstar they have the directions on how to modify the intake manifold to do it yourself, adn i believe you can email him to order all the other stuff, or at least get the specs to have it made
