Try pulling your inline fuel filter, just in front of the passenger rear tire area. Turn on the key to power and see if any gas is getting through. If not contact the Ford dealer in your area to get it serviced for the Fuel Delivery Module Recall. It clogs and will suddenly make the car not start, mine just did this a couple months ago.

1999 mercury cougar. won't start...cranks...battery ok.

V6 ? 4CYL? Have you verified SPARK? Did anyone check the "fuel pump inertia switch?" Its in the right front kick panel. If it was a "Anti-theft Issue" the light would be on or flashing.
