I have a 1998 windstar that when I start it and run it for a few it blows my fuel pump fuse I have replaced the the fuel pump pressure sensor what could be the cause of it oh and it keeps giving the...

Well code 1450 for a Ford product is a problem with the gas tank venting system.
I would think the pump in the tank is blowing the fuse, and it could be from excessive pressure in the tank.

1998 sts wont start unless u hit the gas then it runs rough ..u put it in drive it wont run over 2000 rpms then it dies

Is the gas tank above 1/2 tank now?

A worn / aged fuel pump will fail when it's hot and the fuel level is low (example: below 1/4)

Park your car in a cool area.

Start the car when it's cold outside,

Check the engine fuel pump pressure.
Replace the fuel pump relay,fuel filter,fuel pump and fuel pump stainer at the same time.

Ford Fiesta 1993 start up and acceleration problem...

Before start driving your vehicle use this check list.
Turn on key but don't start engine, listen for pump noise, check your fuel pressure and then turn your engine off. Check your fuel pressure again and read the difference if any. Possible fuel pump malfunctioning and loosing fuel pressure. Check your fuel filter and replace it, check your spark plugs and vires, check PCV valve, check your battery for charge, check your alternator for charge, check your vacuum hoses.There is so much components that could cause this to happen but try to check all things and you will be abble to pin point the problem.

Ford fiesta diesel endura turn's over & try's

Normally, only 2 things stop a diesel from firing:
1. no fuel
2. not enough compression

No fuel can be caused by (obviously no fuel) or a failed fuel pump. To test, have someone turn the engine over and then sniff at the exhaust - does it smell of unburned diesel? (If you've run out of diesel recently, you may have an airlock in the system, this needs bleeding out.)

Not enough compression needs specialised equipment to test - that's a garage job.

Ran out of gas,put gas in car still wont start should i put gas in carburator?

it doesnt have a carb its fuel injected so the pump may have gone out the fuel is also coolant for the fuel pump if its below 1/4 tank the pump doesnt cool off as well so if it was empty enough times you probably ruined the fuel pump

My 1998 ford explore stop running!

Try rapping your started with a hammer a couple of times. It sounds to me you are having starter problems, not you fuel pump. If this works it may be only tempory and your starter may "freeze up" again. If so, you are probably in need of a new starter.
