Ford Windstar

If a 2000 Ford Windstar had the alternator and fuel filter and fuel pump all replaced why would it still die like it is not getting enough gas?

Mine was doing this also and stalling bad. I found a broken vacuum line going to the DPFE sensor. The problem came back several weeks later. I cleaned the connections to the DPFE and MAF sensors with contact cleaner. Replaced the DPFE sensor, and found I had a broken clip on the MAF sensor connector (probably the actual problem. If you aren't getting enough air flow, or the computer thinks you aren't from bad sensors or connections, it adjusts the mixture leaner.

The alternator must be removed and replaced from the bottom, as with raising the vehicle high enough to work from underneath "safely".

depends on what way you are testing it but you either have a bad connection between the alternator and the battery or your battery is bad and cant hold the charge what voltage are you getting

I just had my alternator replaced (at a shop). They told me the mechanic had to "rip the entire front end off" to get to it.

The Alternator is not putting out enough voltage. If you recently replaced the alternator with a "new" remanufactured alternator that one could be bad to your truck somewhere to get it tested.

$550 at the dealership. The motor has to be raised up to gain enough clearance to get it out of the engine bay.
