Question about 2001 Ford Windstar
It was running fine then when it was turned off it wouldn't start again..
Check for spark at the spark plug tips.
Check the condition of your air filter.
Check the condition of your fuel filter, and that there is fuel flow to the engine.
Please report once these have been checked.
Does the vehicle crank over at all?
If not, then check your battery voltage, in case you left a circuit on when you left the car. If you have no headlights, or they dim considerably when trying to crank the car over, then charge the battery and try again.
If the headlights are bright, even when cranking the engine, then you will have to check the starter motor's wiring for an electrical signal when cranking, and if it isn't starting then you have an issue with the starter motor and/or solenoid.

SOURCE: In march tuck wouldn't start
You need to get a digtal voltage meter (about $15) and check it out yourself-readings at the battery should be 12.5 volts after sitting overnight. Once you start it, the readings at the battery terminals should go up to almost 15 volts when first started, then gradually drop down to around 14.2 volts-I would bet either your battery is bad, or your battery is bad and your alternator has failed trying to supply power to a bad battery-either way, your mechanic should not have allowed the battery light to stay on after changing out the alternator without finding out what was wrong-he did not fix it.

i would check the fuel filter if thats not it then it will most likely be the fuel pressure regulator make sure the vacuum line didnt fall off of it if that checks out then id say its your pump good luck i hope this helps

SOURCE: I ran out of gas
It sounds like you ran down the battery as you tried to get it started. The alternator charges the battery when your engine is running.
If you get a fresh battery or a jump start, try cycling the key from off to the run position 4 or 5 times (pausing in the run position for 5 seconds or so). This will move some fuel from the tank to the engine with the electric fuel pump as you probably ran it dry.
