Unless you know how to test for this I would be putting it in the shop. I would replace the crank sensor and the fuel pump relay. I would be checking for codes. You may have one especially if it died while driving. These new car arn't like the old days. You can't just throw parts at it. It gets expensive that way. A Tech will hook up a scanner and drive the car monitoring the fuel pressure and the sensors, When something happens he can do a snap shot of what occurred several frames before and several after. He will be able to see what component . Even for an experienced tech these intermittent problems can be a pain.
I know your looking for a cheap fix but for anyone to diagnose this sight unseen we would be guessing with your safety.

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.

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

Replace the lowest cost part first.....fuel filter. If this does not solve the problem then its more than likely your fuel pump.
