My windstar starts but then dies ?

its a ford.... you should expect mysterious problems to pop up at any given moment.

Is there anything else that you can share that will help us solve this?

I am going to guess it is the fuel pump or fuel filter...
change the filter and that will allow greater fuel flow to the engine...
if that doesnt do it... you may need to change the fuel pump.

2000 Ford Winstar, 80000 miles on it just bought

Seeing as how no one ever changes trans fluid and all vehicles tend to have some trans issues,I would say your best bet is to check with a trans shop and if your comfortable there, have it towed. Unless it is something simple,expect about a $2000.00 repair bill.

Replace fuel filter on 2000 mazda protege

A 2001 Mazda Protege (actually, all models from 1999-2003 including the DX, LX, ES, Mazdaspeed, and Protege 5) does not have an inline fuel filter. The only fuel filter it has is a "strainer" or a "screen", which looks like a nylon mesh "sock". This strainer is connected to the fuel pump, located in the gas tank. Although this fuel strainer does not require periodic replacement, it is recommended that it be changed if you are replacing the fuel pump.

2001 Windstar stalls after 15-30 minutes restarts when cool

It's best to have your shop put it on a scanner and see what codes it's throwing. This can be several problems. I have seen fuel pumps work intermittent and I've seen them go out after filling up. your case may be ignition problem or could be coil packs going bad. A good mechanic can scan this for you and see what the issue is or Ford Dealer for 75.00 - 100.00. Hope this helps, Chris J.C. Towing
