'98 Windstar Woes!!
Hey everyone, Well my '98 Windstar 3.8 has decided to have a little hiccup and I need to see if I can get it cured. This vehicle has over 218,000 miles on it and still got 20.8 MPG the last time I checked. It would not restart the other day during a trip to town. Sounded like it was trying to start, but not getting gas. Put more gas in as fuel gage was on E and it sounded like it was not picking up any fuel from the tank. Still wouldn't start and stay running. I tried the cheapest quick fix and put on a new fuel filter. It started and I was able to drive it the few miles home but it seemed like the throttle had a sweet spot and I had to feather it in and out of that area to keep it running. Shut it off and when I went to restart it the next day, same problem. Got it restarted and same thing with the throttle. I can work the throttle in that area and get it to accelerate up to the 4 grand rev limiter, but any more or less throttle and it falls on it's face. I don't have a code reader and the closest AutoZone is 40 miles away. I don't have the money to throw at it just guessing what might be wrong so any help would be appreciated.
