Question about Ford Windstar
So only in the summertime, when it's hot outside/super sun beating down on my van, it has problems starting. It starts perfectly fine the first time I drive it of the day. But after I drive for either a wee bit or a lotta bit (seems to gradually get better the longer I drive it) it doesn't start if I try turning it back on shortly after I've driven it(like around and under an hour ish-sometimes two). It DOES turn over though, every time I try. So one time I took a four minute trip, left it off for 5ish minutes, came back, wouldn't start, I had to wait a few hours, it was hot outside, was turning over, only started when the gas pedal was pressed all the way down for a couple of seconds, then started the engine, then released the gas pedal, started fine. Problem with relay? If so, which one? Fuel Filter is fairly new.
You will need to explain all that at a repair shop,
so they can duplicate the issue & then do some
testing, to find & resolve the problem
No one can tell you over the internet on a guess
Always need the car to find any problems

sounds electrical when a electrical component is warm high resistance is built. 1 item of concern will be a crank position sensor. The one I want you to look at is know as CKP sensor(REF) 120 Deg. Nissan has an article about this . Broken wires in the main harness are common. The break will be between the engine and right shock tower

if its been a while change the fuel filter and then have the fuel pressure and volume checked.these symptoms are very common for a fuel pump problem.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your help. I found out that the fuel filter is in the fuel tank, so I made an appointment to have it looked at. Hopefully, it's just the filter! Thank you again!"
Ive heard that it could be the throttle position sensor located on the rear side of the throttle body. I am having the same problem with mine at 208K miles and im replacing the sensor (which is obnoxiously hard to get to) and then I am going to prey that it works!!
