Hopefully, it is just the battery. Try and jump start it to see if that works. If you do jump it successfully, drive it immediately to your preferred auto parts store and have them install a new battery.

If that doesn't work, there could be an issue with one of the components of the ignition system (ignition coil, distributor, etc). A problem here could prevent enough energy being transferred to the spark plug to ignite the engine. If it isn't the battery, then you should have it towed in to a mechanic.

It doesn't floods out, the fuel pressure is too low: either you have fitted a pump that is too small or you have contaminants that are clogging the fuel lines.
Take out the fuel pump, make sure it's the correct one, take out the tank and wash it thoroughly, flush the fuel lines, test the fuel pressure regulator and replace it if you have any doubts and finally have the injectors professionally cleaned at a repair shop.

SOURCE: 98 Ford F150 w/4.6l Wont start. Hear fuel pump

have diagnostic codes checked to see if you have a cam or crank sensor fault. make sure fuel pressure is at the required pressure, just testing to see if you have fuel at the valve is not enough. replace all spark plug wires. if you replaced two then all are just as old and even when they "look good" does not qualify as "they are good". Replace coil pack. start up drive away happy

1991 ford tempo ran fine went to store it started fine and then just died

Likely a gas or spark problem. Spray starting fluid into the air intake while cranking it. If it then runs for a few seconds, it's a fuel problem-maybe the fuel pump, filter, or injector circuit. Check if gas is getting up to the engine.
Buy an inexpensive "spark tester" at a parts store, and check for spark- if no spark, the ignition circuit will need diagnosed- could be the ignition coil, maybe the electronic ignition module-several possibi9lities. Let me know what you find, or if other questions..

Seems like you replaced everything on the ignition but the cap. Sounds like a good place to look to me.
Look for burn marks around contacts.

It could be the coil, or the ignition module where there coils sit on. Start with the simple and check the spark plug wire first, then work your way to the coils and module. Once you work your way to the coils, try switching the coils around and see if the misfire will switch cylinders which would indicate a bad coil. If the same cylinders are still misfiring after the coils have been switch, then it's a good chance that's it's going to be the wire harness to the ignition module or the module it self. Good luck and hope this helps.
