    I have a 1996 tarus wagon (3.0v6) the wife was driving down the road, and she said it was like she shut off the key. called me I came in the trusty old chevy (ha ha chevy saves ford) and she had dash lights, headlights so i towed it home, went out the next morning the car will crank but will not start. It seems to act like it wants to start but doesnt, is the fuel intertia switch or a fuel pump?

Sounds like a fuel problem. check fuel pressure and then check for power going to the pump.Verry likley needs a new fuel pump.

Engine got wet. Why doesn't it start?


Depends on how wet it got. There is high voltage present at the coils for the spark plugs, water shorts those out. If water got into the cylinders then the sparkplugs wont spark either.

Why wont my 1996 ford explorer start it turns over but wont start


You need to determine whether or not it is getting fuel and spark. It needs both to start. Remove one plug wire and hold it close to the engine while someone cranks it over. There should be spark from the plug wire. If there is spark, you will have a fuel supply issue. Possible fuel pump/relay/wiring/fuel filter/injectors not working to name a few. If no spark, possible crank sensor/ignition module/wiring.

1996 ford contour...lights work on dashboard; belts turning; tries to start but won't turn over


Someone will need to figure out if you are lacking fuel to the injectors, spark to the plugs, or if you have a mechanical problem with the engine such as a faulty timing belt.

My 1996 ford taurus sho wont start, it will turn over but not start what could be wrong?


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Looks like that there's no current flowing that's why it won't fire up. I strongly suggest that you check and replace the coil pack if necessary. If the coil pack is faulty there will be no current to the plugs. One good reason why it won't fire up.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1996 ford taurus wont start


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

First, be sure that the battery has a good charge for if it's weak there won't be enough power for the starter to kick the flywheel. Second is, if the battery is fully charge and it still won't kick, the starter itself can be faulty. If that's the case, it will surely need replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1995 ford tauras wont start....Before it stopped starting it would chug whenever i would slow down at stop lights and stop signs and such but i could start it back up again. Now it wont start at all. it...


Hi, sounds like an ignition problem. Recommend you check for spark first. Then take a look at your spark plugs--may need a tune up.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

When rain and car sits over night ,can crank car tillsmell gas but no fire


On a 96 tauras you might need to check simple things like your spark plug wires. Try starting the car while it's dry, then take a spray bottle and soak down the spark plug wires if it runs different then replace them.

1992 Ford Taurus wagon not starting, but turns over


You might have a problem with your crank sensor or ignition. Remove spark plug wire and check for spark while turning engine over. When this happens unplug crank sensor near crank pulley then plug back in to see if it starts if so replace crank sensor.
