What type of problem are you having with the fuel pressure regulator?Is the regulator leaking on your?
Chat is fine, What type of problem are you having with the fuel pressure regulator?Is the regulator leaking on your?
So when it stall have you connected a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel rail service port and measured the actual fuel pressure when the problem is occurring?
Unless the fuel pressure regulator is leaking then its not likely the problem. You need to start with checking the fuel pressure when the engine stalls.
This sounds to me like you have a failing fuel pump which is very common. On a properly working fuel pump you need to see 32 to 45 PSI. Anything less then 32 PSI would indicate you have a failing fuel pump, Your Windstar has known issue with the furl pumps heating up and when this happens it causes the fuel to foam and the fuel pressure to drop and then the engine stalls. Usually after it has set for a little while the pressure will return and the engine will start and run again.
Your very welcome and if you need the replacement steps for the pump I can send them as well. Please take a moment to rate my service so I can get credit for my time, the question remains open for follow up even after doing so, all you need to do is return to this question if need be.Thank you again.
Yes, see them in the link below. Be sure check your fuel pressure first.To relieve the fuel pressure when you replace it remove the fuse #5 located in the under hood fuse panel and then start the Van and let it die.https://www.dropbox.com/s/x93rrw5yzve4d8g/Fuel%20pump%20Sep%2026.pdf?dl=0https://www.dropbox.com/s/8e556c6xoc5rvig/fuel%20tank%20Sep%2026.pdf?dl=0
