    SOMETIMES MY VAN WILL NOT START, IT'S NOT THE FUEL PUMP

    WHEN IT DOES START IT RUNS LIKE NEW BUT AT TIMES IT WILL NOT START AND IT APPEARS THAT IT IS NOT GETTING FUEL, COULD THE CHOKE

    BE STUCK?

    I have had more than a few people with Fords in general have the same problem in cold weather. They start the vehicle like it was carburated, use a little gas (with pedal) as they are starting it. That always seems to work. I am just now trying to figure where the engineers whent wrong that this problem is ongoing up to 2007 so far. I just bought my first Ford and my Windstar has the same problem.

My Ford windstar 2003 would not start today. I turns over but wont start. I thought it was no gas so i put 2 gallons in it. It still wont start... please help


Okay. i have seen alot of fords that wont start but ran good and got parked and then wont start, the problems i have found is first the fuelpump goes bad,try this, have someone try to start the truck and at the same beat the bottom of the fuel tank with a rubber hammer, this shakes the pump and sometimes makes a bad pump start back up, if you get van going with the method then pump is bad and needs replacing. the other thing i have seen alot is that fords have a fuel shutdown switch, this shuts the fuelpump off when van is in a crash or i have seen this just by the van getting tapped in a parking lot, so check the switch, you will need to look in the manual to locate it and you will use your finger on the top to push the button in and you will feel it click a little and then try to start the van, here are a few locations they put the switch.i jsut remembered on this van the switch is in the rightside in the luggage compartment, open the rear tailgate and look to the right on the side you will see a decal that say fuel switch, thats the switch. hope this helps. good day

Oil leak


The oil you described is called blow back, which means the oil leaking is blowing back on the bottom side of van,, Those vans are known for computor problems, Which means they need re flashed once they start like dash lites wont come on or cooling fan wont come on and van over heats,or wipers ,radio wont come on than all of a sudden they come on,,I just got rid of a nice looking 98 had same problems.Also the main bearing on yours is leaking oil, I wont buy that van.You do what you want but Dodge,cryseler,are cheap made vehecles, I just answered a 2000 van that had the reflash problem here on fixya.So look around.

Bad gas van wont run


undo fuel pipe where it exits the fuel pressure regulater and turn engine over , use bucket and rag to catch pumped fuel , do this for half gallon and reconnect ,, then take spark plugs out and clean with easy start (eather) and replace , should start fine now ,

Chevy astro van turns over but wont start when


Check to see if the fuel pump is kicking in,
when you turn the key on without starting the van you should hear it kick on for about 2 seconds,

It could be...
A clogged fuel filter...
Blown fuse for the pump..or bad pump relay..
No gas
Bad fuel pump
