2001 windstar cranking problems

2001 windstar will not crank somtimes. you can here fuel pump sometimes or you may not . then it will crank either way sometimes and it will run smooth. if it doesn't crank it will act like it wants to but missess real bad then dies.

The fuel pump should run for a few seconds every time you turn the key. That's before turning to the start position. If it doesn't sometimes, it's in the fuel pump or the circuit to it.

Re: 2001 windstar cranking problems

The pump can be intermittant. The pump HAs to turn on for a few seconds. It could be that when you turn to crank, the fuel pump gets triggered to run. Hard to say. Could be a relay, pump, etc. How many miles are on it?

Listen every time you turn the key on before you turn to start and see if you hear the pump come on. If you could see if it's getting fuel pressure when it doesn't start could pin it down more. Have you had it checked for codes? Autozone will do it for free.
