I have a 1998 Ford Windstar. Two weeks ago I hit a steet curb at a narrow intersection with enough force to blow a tire. Later the car hesitated on starting (had to crank the engine ..

Asked by Nov 25, 2014 at 05:28 PM about the 1998 Ford Windstar 3 Dr LX Passenger Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

for 10 seconds).  The next day the
engine would crank energeticly
but not start due apparently to a lack
of fuel.  The tank is 2/3 full.  When the
key is turned to "on"  I can hear the
fuel pump run for about three
seconds.  The inertia switch has not
been tripped.  The fuel pump fuse and
cold start relay are O.K.

Does anyone have a suggestion on
what to do next?  I'm thinking about
checking the MAF, the fuel filter, and
vacuum hoses.
