Question about 1996 Ford Windstar
Hi, it sounds like a fuel pump problem. You might also want to have the injectors looked at or use one of those additives that clean injectors while you run it. But if if starts while you hold the gas pedal down but dies when you let off, the fuel pump may be clogged or weak and failing, the pump should push through apprx 4-5 gallons a minute. You could disconnect the downstream side of the pump, put a container under it and have someone crank it for EXACTLY one minute. If you get much less than 4 or 5 gallons, there is something wrong with the pump, BUT it could also be the mixture control on your computer, not sure, could be alot of things.
