Understand what happens to cause vapor-lock. The temp around the motor gets hot enough to boil the fuel in the lines. The pump is likely a problem. it must exceed the 30 psi setting on the fuel rail regulator. this pushes excess gas back to the tank, and keeps the fuel lines cool enough to prevent boiling. When starting, the fuel pump should pump a little gas through the regulator back to the tank, so cool fuel is again at the rail.
Maybe this is a the problem, maybe not. Good Luck!

Most of the time the problem is caused by the brake switch or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park. When you turn the key on, power is applied to the solenoid and stepping on the brake cuts that power.
It could be a vapor lock but not likely. Since the introduction of fuel injection vapor lock has been eliminated. You need to figure out if you are loosing fuel pressure or spark when it will not start back up. Could be a fuel pump relay or ignition module among other things. Even a problem with the vent for the gas tank.
Hello! The vapor canister is more than likely plugged...The carbon granules can infiltrate the entire fuel system...I would suggest #1...Replace canister...and fuel filter..#2....Relieve fuel pressure, disconnect battery, remove and clean the fuel rail and injectors...On 8/12/1996 there was a recall on your vehicle addressing the fuel and injection system...If the recall was performed there should be a sticker on the inside of the drivers door...The original culprit is the Fuel Vapor control Valve which is allowing fuel to enter the vapor lines...see diagram below...
try replacing the fuel pump reley
they are a little bit funny in fords
i had a ford 1 time thet ran fine for hours in the driveway but go 2 blocks and the truck would die dam reley took me 2 monthes to diagnose once i did i had a great vechiale untill a dui hit me broad side
its due to what is called "vapor locking" the fuel in the lines top of engine gets hot and turns to vapor. the fix can be a new fuel pump if you have low pressure or just a pressure regulator. hope this helps
you can jump it with a running car, then take it to somewhere like Autozone which will check the charging system and battery to see if there is a problem. Also sometimes you need to remove the battery cables and clean both them and the battery terminals.
Replace the crank sensor on your car. The crank sensor tells when the plugs should fire. When it decides to go bad, the cylinders will overly fuel themselves because it's not firing at the right time creating your fuel smell.
