Check the ICP sensor.There is a system that determines how hard to inject fuel based on oil pressure. The ICP sensor is what measures that. If its faulty replace the ICP sensor to solve the problem.
Also the cold weather will cause this. diesels are a problem to start if glow plugs are not working properly. if one glow plug is not working, it will shorten the cycling time and make starting hard. also not plugging it makes hard starting. use a little squirt of starter fluid in the air intake when this happens. truck will start, then just let it warm up for about 5 minutes. PS: if outside temp drops below 55 , it will be hard to start.

thanks,keep updated and please do accept and rate the solution.

How do I get the auto theft light on my 2002ford windstar to go off?


Make sure battery is strong and try leaving key in on position for 5 to 15 minutes. Then go to start. This works on many vehicles - but many are different. If chip key and theft module working leaving key on for several minutes is supposed to be long enough to tell system vehicle is not being stolen (not many thieves willing to sit in car waiting for 10 minutes). If chip key or key "reader" has failed you need dealer help.

Fuse for cig.lighter for 1995 ford areostar cargo van


It located in the fuse panel inside the vehicle. I really do not have a great picture of the fuse layout but that's what I have below. The fuse will be in the number 16 position and it should be a 20 amp fuse. Wish I had a better picture for you but hopes this helps anyway....

It starts fine, runs good until the engine heats u...


Check to see if the radiator fan is coming on when the van gets hot.If it does not then on a 2.6 liter engine.look on the bottom part of the radiator on drivers side for a fan switch that could be bad and not letting the radiator fan to come on. On a 3.0 liter engine the coolant temperature sensor is screwed into the thermostat housing. And on a 3.3 liter and on a 3.8 liter engine the coolant temperature sensor is screwed into the front cylinder head. Anyone of these can cause the van to run hot and eventually die with no restart until the temperature has cooled down. Check the fan first with two jumper wires from the positive/negative post to the fan connector on a 2.6 liter engine (positive wire to open pin on plug,negative wire to insulated plug side. On all v6 engines hook jumper wires to motor. To the left side will be positive and negative to the right. Do not let both wires touch together while testing. If motor does not respond to direct wiring then replace it. Another thing to look at is the catalytic converter on van. Check the exhaust flow when the van is running cold and again when it gets hot. If the flow starts to slow down when the van gets hot then remove the converter(plugging up). After doing that run the van again to see if the van runs ok. Hope this will help you.
