My Van which is a Ford Windstar 1995 wont start
My van has been parked for quite some time. However I got all the new parts
for it such as; spark plugs, fuel pump & fuel filter as well as gas. Once I start my
car I seen that the fuel gauge moves onto the half way mark but then goes
down to empty. My car turns over but wont start. What could be wrong ??
I forgot to mention that I have a new battery but thank you very much for the advice once I check it out I shall get back to you again thank you a ton.
Usually when the fuel gauge goes to Empty It's EMPTY !!! unless the float's heavy Now if the gauge where to go to full to Full and peg out It's a ground problem to the gauge You need to realize the fuel gauge is just a rheostat that meters the ground to the gauge when the float is high in the tank (FULL) it sends less voltage (OHM"s weaker signal ) to the gauge . When the tank is (empty) and the float is low it more ground (stronger signal ) to the gauge to make it go to E You didn't state which motor ?? 3 Liter V-6 ? Check at the Coil for spark Could be the old plug wires
