    This was my first time replacing a fuel pump. My van died going down the road so I had it towed to a repair shop. They said it was the fuel pump and wanted 700.00 to fix it. I found the part for 140.00 and replaced it myself. I can hear it for a few seconds when I turn the key to the on position. When I crank it It won't start. What do I do next?

    I will rent a pressure tester today and check it. What should it read?

Well that is not a lot of info to go on. Was there a history? Did it start before you replaced it?
Either the problem is still the fuel pump or you have a secondary problem.

1. The brand new expensive fuel pump could be a DOA unit. It happens sometimes.

2. When you hooked the new pump up is it possible the electrical connection is bad? You really need a pressure tester for the injection system to know what it is doing.

    When it gets up to pressure it may stop. However your next step is to test the pressure. You really need to know if it is within specs.

    Also make sure you have plenty of gas.
    My brother once bought a car because his ran out of gas. lol was pretty funny. Family joke now.:)

I have a 1998 windstar that when I start it and run it for a few it blows my fuel pump fuse I have replaced the the fuel pump pressure sensor what could be the cause of it oh and it keeps giving the...


Well code 1450 for a Ford product is a problem with the gas tank venting system.
I would think the pump in the tank is blowing the fuse, and it could be from excessive pressure in the tank.

WON'T START AFTER BATTERY REPLACEMENT


Probably a security system, battery was unhooked.
Some Fords also have two fuel pumps, one in the tank, and a secondary one in the frame rail.

We have a 1998 Ford Windstar. When pumping gas, the pump shuts off constantly. We can only pump less than .50 at a time. We have tried adjusting placement of the fuel nozzle, doesn't help.


the filler neck would have to be replaced. ford has had problems with their filler necks in that year. it consist of 2 tubes one inside the other, that other tube could be kink causing pressure that shuts of the fuel pump.
