Question about 1997 Ford Taurus
The car sounds like it is trying to start. It sounds good and strong. Someone checked my fuel filter and says it's fine. They also believe they hear the fuel pump run when I turn the key on. I checked the red button on the switch in the trunk. It is depressed. I did nothing with the car between the time the cables where reconnected (and it started up) and a couple hours later when I went out to start it. Help!
My assumption as when you say "good an strong" is that the motor is turning over. If you are confident it is getting fuel then there are only two other ingredients - Air and spark. You could check the air filter for air quality as this is usually a simple step but it is more likely that you are missing ignition (spark) - start with checking that your ignition coil / coils are working .

Sounds like the Fuel Pump, which is located in the Gas Tank, ahead of the rear wheels, basically under the rear door. The gas tank itself is not hard to remove, and you could get a kit available online. It's probably easier to do if you have ramps and back the rear wheels onto those two ramps, you can't do it as easily by just jacking up the car. If you have two hydraulic jacks, that might work as well.
If you buy the part, you want to bring it to a gas station to remove the gas tank, they should be able to do all the work for you in about one hour.

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.

Your fuel pump is fitted in the fuel tank and its the thing you have to change so you either remove it and replace it with a new one as the pumps in the tanks do give problems so remove and replace OR take to your garage and ask them to do it foe you..
And alls done..
