Will start but wont stay running


No the missing O2 sensors would not keep it from running. The missing exhaust pipes might not help matters. No exhaust system would cause a lack of back pressure.
I would want to know what base fuel pressure is with a gauge before and after cranking. Your thought about bad gas is legit, today's gasoline is only good for about 2 or 3 months before it starts gelling up.
Did you replace the inline filter the last time you put the new pump in ? And are you sure the pump is getting power after the key is released?

My 1992 dodge dakota truck will crank but not start


The basics, make sure battery has a full charge. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes? Your obd1, you should be able to check some codes, yourself.
You can try cycling the key on and off several times before you crank it, when problem is ongoing, if that helps, I think it's a fuel issue.

Check for fuel pressure and check for spark during the no start condition. Also check the crank sensor, it is located behind the crank pulley mounted in the engine block on the 4.3 L engine
I hope this helps.

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

Hello. If you remove the fuel filters and fill them with fuel, then hold the accelerator pedal to the floor while cranking the engine it should start. If that does not work, spray a little starting fluid (ether) into the air intake while cranking, just use the ether sparingly. This should get you going again, good luck.

Intermittently wont start,


I had the same problem with my 1995 Mark VIII. the problem turned out to be a combination of plugged fuel filter and the sock filter in the fuel tank. when the car sat for a while the sediment blocking the sock would fall off the sock filter in the tank, but once you start driving it will pick it back up and block the pump from retrieving enough fuel.
