I guess you should start with why you thought this was a fuel starvation problem. Many things can preclude an engine from running and fuel starvation, albeit one two most common reasons, is just one of them. If a newer car then an electrical problem could defeat the injection system, etc.

2001 ford windstar, van has been setting for a year, got my license back and went to start the van, no fuel pump noise, replaced fuel pump, started just fine drove it around for a day parked it now wo


Can you hear the fuel pump run, if not it may have failed again. I have seen new fuel pumps last a day or two and then fail. If your pump is working then replace the fuel filter. Anytime you open the fuel system, you should replace the filter.

Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter, a dirty fuel filter will also cause what you have described and a ICM (ignition control module) going bad will also do the same.

You can remove your ICM and have it tested free of charge at Auto Zone or Parts Source when you go and pick up the fuel filter. A bad ICM will cause your engine to stall out and eventually fail totally and your going to have a no engine run situation.

My friend owns a 96 oasis as well, van only has a pressure of 18 psi, there has been a recent fuel pump change along with filter and screen. What else is left to check? Van was able to start after the...


Forget the injectors. They worked before the new pump,why go there.
The new pump maybe defective,it happens, I suppose.
Your only problem, may have just been the fuel pressure regulator ,and not the pump at all.
I hope you mean, you changed the replaceable fuel filter, not just the sock on the fuel pump in the tank. If the filter is really dirty, it would stop the flow of fuel, and give you less than 40 to 70# psi,but 18#.

remove the fuel line from the carb, put it into a bottle, crank the engine, If the bottle has fuel in it the fuel pump is working properly, if not, check the filter, and the fuel lines to the tank!!!

1996 astro van stopped running


Sounds like dirty gas and the fuel filter is clogged...try changing the fuel filter...some are under the car, but most are mounted against the firewall in the engine compartment.
