Question about 1988 Ford Econoline
Try checking the relays on the passenger fender wall. There are two relays, a fuel pump relay and a ECC Relay. Simply tap the top the the two relays (located under a black plastic cover) or push the green and black relays upward and into the connection. Typically at this point you notice that when your engine does not start the Check Engine Light does not show up. Once pushed together it usually starts.

I have the same problem out of my 88 e-150 v8. It's the fuel pump. Two things: Wiggle the shifter make sure it is completely in park. For some reason the fuel pump doesn't work unless the shifter is just right. Second: Sometimes the fuel pumps don't just go out. They work intermitently. Open the door, turn the switch on. Then back off. You should be able to hear the fuel pump kicking on and off. Do it several times and you should hear if if is not working 100%
