1991 F150 Will not crank.

Do real fuel pressure test using test gauge. You changed ignition module but not coil? Are you getting nice fat blue spark? When spraying starter fluid into intake it only tries to start which makes me think you have ignition problem.

1997 voyager will start sometimes and wont sometimes

I suspect you have a failing electric fuel pump inside the fuel tank. To confirm this is the problem get a can of spray starting fluid from the auto parts store, when you experience the next no start spray the starting fluid into the air intake hose to the engine while a friend cranks it over with the starter, if it starts right up you likely have a defective fuel pump.

My 96 crown vic police interceptor, cranks won't start without spraying starter fluid.. the car won't start without spraying starter fluid into air intake hose to carb...

starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi

Engine will not run, seems like it is not getting gas?

Spray carb spray or starter fluid into intake hose then try to start. If starts then suspect fuel pump and or fuel pump relay. If does not start check spark. Pull off spark plug wire and ground to metal make sure no fuel is present and be careful not to spark yourself, crank car while grounding out wire if no spark suspect coil, fuse, ignition control module, crank sensor, wiring, or computer.

Sounds like the fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, or a stuck needle and seat in the carburator.

Won't start. turning, but won't fire.

If you think its fuel, spray some starter fluid inthe throttle body. If it fires up, you have a fuel problem, otherwise, check your spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor. Also, check your fuses.

Hard starting or will not start every time

With the vehicle turned off: spray some starter fluid into your intake. You'll have to take off the hose from your air filter assembly to do this. After you spray some starter fluid reinstall the hose to your intake. And try to start your vehicle. If it starts every time you do this and runs without issues. Then you could have a clogged fuel filter or the fuel pump is going out.

Will not start without spraying starter fluid for a second.

I would start by changing the fuel filter. The next area would be the O-rings if so equipped. If it starts better after a short use then you are getting air in the fuel lines overnight. Diesels are tempermental. The cranking speed of the starter is important and easily checked externally. If you have a mechanical fuel pump you are relying on cranking speed to prime the fuel system. The timer or timing wiring could prevent the glowplugs from heating up. Diesels rely on glowplugs to start, then compression to run. Its a lot to look at but I suggested the cheapest fixes first.
