Question about 1995 Ford Windstar
My newly acquired 95 Windstar was running ok, just a cel, until
I took it on a 200 mile trip with 6 adult in it.
It started somewhat stalling and then died, a day after we
arrived. I found no fuel pressure under the hood, and voltage
at the pump connector, and spark so I replaced the fuel pump.
It started and drove 16 miles to the store and when I came out I
had the exact symptoms as before ie it would turn over, had
spark, injectors firing, but wouldn't start. Again no pressure
under hood however this time when I pulled of the line at the
filter & turned it over I had gas flow just not high pressure.
I changed the fuel relay module, with one from the scrap yard
and now the cooling fans come one by themselves full power and
the car still doesn't start. I had it towed to a garage they
put in on a code reader but had to leave on a family emergency
he only left me with one code, P1405. (Differential Pressure
Feedback Electronic (DPFE) sensor upstream hose off or plugged)
Can anyone help me get back on the road
While I was patching the holes in my oil pan today and waiting for the JB Weld (another story in itself) to cure I inspected the area of the relay control module (fuse box) because I had some luck previously moving things around there and getting it to start (see above). I found that I had previously repaired and/or upgraded the the two smaller wires coming from the neg. cable. One goes to a connector and if I remember correctly on to the fans (I remember tracing it previously--dont remember where to) and the other to body ground--I had soldered the wire to connector and bared surface on body to make a good connection. As I mentioned I zoomed in on the fuse box and found that the large pos. cable goes to the starter and there is a relativly large cable going to the fuse box where it is bolted onto a plate/connector that then allows the current to travel through a fuse link (that runs under the module) into a rather large wire going --somewhere--. The plate seemed to be made out of some aluminum alloy. I removed the nuts (after disconnecting the battery of course) and found some corrosion on both the nuts and the plate. Wire brushed both (with drill and wire brush---took much more cleaning/brushing than I expected) I cannot say if this fixed this or not as our problem is sooooo intermittant. I didnt follow the fuse linked wire and as I type this I am wondering if there is such a thing as an intermittant fuse link. (I remember wanting to junk some chryslers as a kid)

I found some info at another website and they say to replace the DPFE. Here is the link ......
This should give you an idea what you are looking for if you do it yourself.
