MY 98 FORD WINDSTAR WILL NOT START. IT TURNS OVER BUT NOTHING. I HAVE CHANGED THE FEUL PUMP AND CHECKED FOR SPARK. IT DOES HAVE SPARK. WHAT ELSE CAN IT BE?
Do you
have the same problem?

Are you getting good fuel pressure to the rail? Also, have you checked to make sure the injectors are getting power?

Will it start for a few seconds with starting fluid?

Let me know.

THERE IS LITTLE FUEL PRESSURE TO THE RAIL. I CHANGED THE PUMP AND THE FILTER. IT WILL STAR FOR A FEW SECONDS IF I SPRAY FUEL TO THE THROTTLE BODY.

If you aren't getting enough fuel pressure, the injectors won't work. Have you checked for kinked or damaged fuel lines? If the pump is new and is getting power, something is stoping the pressure from building at the rail.

Recheck the lines and let me know what you find.

I WENT AHEAD AND REPLACED THE PUMP AGAIN. THOUGHT IT MIGHT OF BEEN A FAULTY FEUL PUMP. CHECKED THE LINES NO KINKS. NOW I'M NOT GETTING ANY PRESSURE WHAT SO EVER TO THE RAIL. YOU CAN HEAR THE PUMP TURN ON WITH THE KEY. CAN IT BE THE FEUL PRESSURE REGULAOTR OR RELAY? I ALREADY CHANGED THE FILTER ALSO. IT JUST WOULDN'T START FROM ONE DAY TO THE NEXT.
