You should have the timing belt inspected as startup and shut down are when they fail most often.

Run fault codes check as it may be a failed cam/crank position sensor that will not allow it to start or some other faulty sensor that is the problem. Do not waste money until you know what you have to replace

98 ford windstar van ran out of gas and now wont start even after refueling.


To review - - the fuel pump in the tank pumps fuel to the injectors.
There is a fuel shut-off which works in a wreck to prevent a fire.
If the plunger is down, the switch is on. Normal.

It is possible the fuel lines are full of air which would take a long time to purge by cranking the engine. Sometimes you have to use starting fluid or other means to "run" the engine long enough to get gas back into the injectors.
As long as the engine cranks, the battery is fine.
It is also possible the pump was damaged when the tank was run empty. The pump uses liquid fuel to cool and lubricate the electric pump. It can overheat when running the tank below 1/4 full.
It is also possible the fuel filter was clogged with junk from the bottom of the tank.
I would get someone to check for fuel pressure at the injectors and try some carb cleaner or starting fluid in the intake hose next.

Wont' start


I would look at the possibility of a clogged fuel filter first. Some contaminants from the bottom of the fuel tank may have clogged it up when the tank was run empty. It has been known to happen. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Ran out of fuel


The reason is: When you completely run out of gas your gas lines are completely drained of fuel. When you refuel the car the fuel lines are still empty, and you will need to crank the car until the fuel pump has filled the gas lines and established the correct fuel pressure.I also suggest you turn key to on position to let electrical system run fuel pump and when ready to crank over engine have battery hooked up to a battery charger this should do it!!

'02 Santa Fe V6 awd, Upon start up after a refuel you have to keep the revs up or it will stall,after that it starts fine.Also after running the a/c it doesn't want to shut off,turn the key back on and off...


One problem at a time please. No. 1!. Your description points to a faulty Purge Control Solenoid Valve (related to engine stall after refuel). The second problem could be caused by 'hot spots' in the combustion chamber -- however, the only way for any fuel to enter the combustion chamber after the KEY is turned OFF, is through the Purge Contro Solenoid Valve - it's the only component directly related to the problem you describe (unless you (or someone else) has modified the engine in some way other than original manufacture's design. Solution (provided no modifications have been performed), replace the Purge Control Solenoid Valve.
