Check the HT leads for security, make sure the battery is fully charged, clean the sparkplugs and try again, could just be a loose cable for starters.
If this doesn't solve the problem you need to have the engine diagnostics run at a garage before any advice is possible - even if you check for spark and find none you cant suspect the coils until you know the condition of the ECU.

Wont start. drove the caravan to the store then home and it hasnt started since


It could be just about anything was it driven normal before it died or was it acting up . make sure that the gas is actually getting to the engine if it is i would maybe change the spark plugs. then the computer again . but may start to get costly by guessing you may want to bring it in for test..

2003 sport trac turned over started...died will not restart.


Could be bad altenator, voltage regulator, or battery. If the check engine light is on, it is most likely a bad sensor. The car will have to be put on scanner to find out exact reason light is on.
