Hi all,
It can block the wind when you installed the front car window to prevent the wind.

Is it correct?
Does it make any sense?

I'm afraid not. A car's windshield (AmE)/windscreen (BrE) keeps the air from blowing into the car.

Why are you using the "keep" here?

In this usage, prevent and keep are synonyms. I could have written A car's windshield prevents the air from blowing into the car.

It's also possible to use "block" in GoesStation's sentence.
