remove the coil pack and look at bottom of it if it shows any cracks coil is bad very common on these vans if you have a noid light check for injector pulse on #4 if you have pulse and good blue spark most likely the injector is bad you have to remove upper plenum to get injectors out let me know how you make out

This could be caused by multiple components failing. what i have seen most often on the windstar is the transmission pan gasket leaking, which is maybe a twenty dollar gasket between the pan and transmission, very simple to do, just requires removing between 10 and 20 bolts and replacing the gasket, then refilling the trans. i have also seen lines leaking going to the transmission cooler, which are more expensive and much more involved than the pan.

Replace the gage cluster you should be able to find a cheap one on craigslist or ebay if not the salvage yard should have one.

To start with, stop using the spray because this is not good for a fuel injected vehicle and you can cause damage to the valves if you continue to do so. Carbs were different in the old days. OK, you may have just caused the fuel pump to try and work a little harder due to being out of gas. There is a fuel cut off switch that will "pop" if you are in an accident or there is an electrical overload. that switch is located in the cargo area od the vehicle. below is a picture of its location for you and the button is on top. Just push it in. If it is "pooped" you will be able to tell for sure when you push it in. Also you may want to check the fuse for the fuel pump motor itself. that fuse is located in the fuse panel under the hood of the vehicle in the engine compartment. The fuse is located in the number 5 position and should be a 15 amp fuse (diagram of fuse layout below). And last is to check the fuel pump relay as well. the relay is located in that same fuse panel and is in the number 207 position. You can check if it is engaging by putting your finger on it and having someone tur the key just to the "on"position (no need to turn the vehicle over as it will engage for 3 - 5 seconds when the key is turned on). You will feel it "click" if it does with your finger. One other thing is if any of these are the problem, you should first prime the fuel system before trying to start the vehicle. this is done by again turning the vehicle key to the "on" position only, wait for 3 - 5 seconds then to the off positiom, turn the key back to the "on" position agian for the same amount of time. Do this several times so the fuel system will build back pressure before trying to start the vehicle. OK, I'm done. I hope this helps and you get going again. Good luck.
