Question about 2000 Ford Windstar
Have not done anything. Fuel lines and electric wire seem to be intact. Engine was running yesterday with no problems. It has been raining, but there is no indication of water in engine area.
As you say it was raining , It would indicate an electrical problem with ignition , check the earth connections and that you have a spark

Check your battery voltage while cranking. If it's too low, the electronics won't work and the injectors won't fire. If the batteries are down a bit, there won't be enough power to turn the engine over fast enough to start. It needs a minimum of 100 rpm and 8 volts while cranking. You also might try waiting till you're sure the GPR has dropped out. That takes the GP load off the batteries and may get the voltage up enough to get it to start, oh and also does the tach move when you're cranking? If not, then chances are the CPS is the culprit.

SOURCE: Ranger fuel problem
There is a fuel cutoff switch on the passengerside floorboard, towards the right kick pannel, there will be a little red button on top of it, check to see if that is tripped, also when you turn the key to the on position listen to see if you hear the fuel pump prime up, just a short buzzing noise from the underside of the cab, if you dont hear it, that is a good indicator that your fuel pump maybe bad, i would also check the pressure at the fuel rail, chrome or black colored bar located near the fuel injectors.

SOURCE: engine will not start.fuel pump
start by checking the fuel pump fuse and relay. will the fuel pump run for a few seconds when you turn the key to the run position? If so you may need to replace the crank position sensor. When this goes bad the engine will turn over and start, but only run for a second or two then die like its out of gas.
If you do not hear the fuel pump coming on and the fuse and relay check out good then you will have to see if there is power going to the fuel pump. if power is present at the fuel pump plug then the fuel pump is bad
