    Assuming you have checked for Spark, it is possible that the fuel pump shutoff switch has tripped. It is usually located in the cargo area behind the left access panel. Try resetting that. Also check the pump fuse. Otherwise, I will need more info. If it is a 4.0 SOHC engine, then they are famous for timing chain failure or the crank gear keyway failing.

    Possible fuel pump issue-Assuming you do have spark at the plugs. Try resetting the fuel pump shutoff switch located under the passenger side dash and mounted on the floorboard. The button on the switch faces up ant you have to reach up there and push it down. Sometimes they just pop for no reason.

Check the fuel pump. You can start it and have someone listen by the tank for a 1-2 second hum. If you hear nothing you either have a bad fuse or a bad fuel pump. If the fuel pump is bad you will have to remove the tank.

Ignition switch changed out , recall, engine won't start easily

After the ignition switch is replaced the car won't start with the reason that the new switch has to be re-learned manually or with the help of diagnostic computer.
Manual learning procedure: PLEASE DO AS DIRECTED.
- Turn the ignition switch to ON (Engine off)
- Try to start the engine and leave the switch to ON position. (At this stage car will not start).

After putting gas into the car, it will not start. You have to pump the petal and turn the key about 3 to 4 times and it will start right up and drive fine until you put gas in it again.

sending unit / fuel could be going bad or the fuel stock filter is getting pluged up when stir up the gas in the tank the sock is a filter inside the gas tank over the sending unit try changing the fuel filter out side the tank that could be pluged up.

My ford windstar wets pluges after which the car will not start. you need to clean the pluges before it will ever start. when it is driven it makes some shoting noise. I ve changed the pluges, clean the...

If it is all plugs I would check the fuel pressure regulator, see if gas leaks out of it when you remove the vacuum hose. It is located on top of the engine, near the fuel rail.

Car will not start unless you prime it then it will run for a brief period and not idle. it has the 3.0 engine with the throttle body style of fuei injection

If the breif period is just 10 seconds the fuel pump relay is at fault since the fuel pum operates it seems since it fires up once the key is turned on.

What do i have to do to due the tune up the engine comparment is so cramped i cant even get my hand in for the spark pluges do i have to take the front tires off and take out the tire shrouds?

Hello , This is a V6 correct? If so , you will need to access the plugs from under the vehical , or just reach in from above and go to town. The tune up will be Plugs . maybe wires if needed. Fuel filter and an oil change. I am unsure of the milage but maybe a coolant change is also in order. Thank you , Quinn
