Question about 2002 Ford ZX2
Just replaced the plugs in my 02 ZX2 with 46K miles on it.
Now car runs as if it is missing.
Timing light on each plug wire shows that more than one are inconsistantly flashing?
I keep engine clean and all plugs and wires are also clean and free from oil, water & debry...
Also... would this be covered under warranty?
Solution seems a little miraculous (although I believe in miracles).
I ohmed out each sparkplug wire finding them all good.
I wiped off the little debry that had collected around each seal of both the sparkplug and distributor ends (remember, I keep this engine clean and there was no noticable fluids or dirt before or during this problem).
I then replaced the same plug wires and viola, all is good!
My only thought is that maybe when putting the plug caps down in the sparkplug wells that maybe one or more found their way beside a plug inside of over and on the plug, but I did not take any wires off to verify this.

not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can
be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it
can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or
no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition
coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
