Is it expensive to have gas tank taken out and fuel filter cleaned to remove dirt after running out of gas in 2002 windstar?

Why are doing this?

Running out gas, like my wife just did, is no big deal - just put more in and off you *should* go.

If the vehicle won't restart right away:

  • cycle the key from off to run 4 or 5 times to re-prime the pump and pressurize the fuel lines.
  • What's the AGE and condition of the fuel filter?
  • Check the emergency fuel shutoff switch.
