Question about 2006 Ford Freestar
It stalled and will not start
Need to know what was happening before it stalled. Was it running smoothly or did it feel like it was running out of gas?
When you turn the key to "ON" where the dash gauges light up, can you hear the fuel pump humming for 3 seconds at the rear of the car. The pump is in the fuel tank. Listen very carefully. You can repeat this test, but you must leave the key off for 30 seconds before you try again. The relay has to shut down & it's on a timer.
If no noise, you likely have a bad pump & the tank has to come out to change it.
If the pump runs, check for spark. Pull a plug wire from the distributor & leave the metal end just above the cap socket & see if it sparks. Do not hold it or you will get a shck. You'll have to prop it close.
If it's real cold where you are, it may be a frozen fuel line. Add a can of dry gas to absorb the water and it will then carry it to the engine to be burned off. You first need to thaw out the blokage by havin gteh van in a warm place for several hours.
Report back with more information about how it happened and the test results.

From your description about all I can offer is make sure it has enough gas. If you comment back with further details that would help.
