1995 Ford Aerostar Repair Question
1995 Ford Aerostar vacuum leak
1995 Ford Aerostar 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 144000 miles
my husband ran out of gas (don't laugh) and we changed the fuel filter. Don't think it is the fuel pump- it's getting gas from the tank. but it tries to start but won't run,shut right off after starting. we checked the vacuum lines because wee could hear a sucking noise,but not sure of the routing. is there a vacuum concerning the fuel?
Since it happened with running out of gas, I feel it is fuel related. That isn't to say you don't have a vacuum leak too.
What I need you to start with is checking fuel pump pressure. Often times, the pump gets damaged from dirt at the bottom of the tank. Here is a how to for checking it. Run the test and let me know what you find. Also, you will need a gauge for this. Most parts stores will lend or rent the tool to you.
