It sounds like the fuel is not being delivered sufficently to the engine. Try looking here. Perhaps a fuel injecter cleaner (you can pour Seafoam into the gas tank and it is a great fuel injecter cleaner and fuel stabilizer). What did your plugs look like when you replaced them? This can tell you a lot about the combustion chamber. A Haynes manual will be invaluable to you.

SOURCE: 96 ford explorer code p0301 mis fire 1

Sounds like either a bad plug wire, or coil pack. This is about all that would cause the misfire.

Still need the codes.
Injectors can go "bad" in a couple of different ways; all they are is an electromagneticaly controlled nozzle. When the ECU "fires" the injector, it pulses a ground circuit for 4-8 milliseconds, the electromagnet powers up, the valve at the bottom of the injector opens, and the fuel shoots out, under pressure. The wire can be bad/chafed/corodded/ The electromagnet may be weak. The nozzle may be stuck. Lots of things. But, to put in an injector for a number 4 cylinder misfire (p-0304 code) would be one of the last things that I would do.

That code is a Throttle Position Malfunction code.

This means one of two things:
1. The throttle body needs replaced
2. After the dead battery, you need to adapt the the throttle body.

The cheap way to do this is to leave the driver's door open, turn the key to the on position, but do not start the car. You will hear the throttle body self-adjust. This may take up to 2 minutes. That should get it close enough. To get it perfect requires a trip to the dealership.

If it does not help, the throttle body might be dead.

SOURCE: changed timing belt on my 99 ford escort zx2 car no

if you have a no spark scenario i would check your crank sensor located at the top left side of the harmonic balance pulley.the crankshaft (about 11'oclock) a 2 wire plug with a sensor on it check to see if it is damaged or unsecured. this sensor can cause no spark if not working correctly. This sensor is based of frequency not voltage testing is difficult, just make sure that there isnt too muck air gap. and that it is secured.Lastly may want to check timing possible that the belt has jumped some teeth and she has fallen out of timing. maybe a bad tensioner The coil will adapt i think up to 10 degree, ****** or advance. Good luck

2002 ford windstar first wouldnt start, jumped and started, drove 200 miles and turn


You need to have the factory security system scanned, it is most likely locking you out due to a fault.

My 99 Taurus acts like the battery is dead it will crank the engine over a couple times slowly then nothing I've had the battery tested and it was good same with the starter it won't jump start...


If the battery and starter have proven good, then you probably have a connection issue.Check condition of battery, wire to battery, and starter wires and connections also. I dont know your particular situation, but there is always the possibility of a motor trying to sieze.

My ford explorer wont start my key goes to access but when i turn it to start nothing not even a clicking noise


ok, Make sure the battery connections are clean, remove and clean to make sure. Then, follow the battery + cable to a solenoid. check those connections. The small wire is the one from the key. That is what cranks the motor. Make sure the vehicle is in neutral and try again. If nothing, then jump the batt+ to the cable on the other side of the solenoid. The starter will crank. Then, jump the + to the little oost. The engine will crank and if your key is on it will start. Always have someone in the drivers seat when doing this..... Safety is a must when out of vehicle. Good Luck, Ned.

1991 Camry, ran battery down, won't start with jump.


Check all fuses under dash and hood. Install a good battery or jump it. Have someone try to crank it while you check for voltage to the starter solenoid. Make sure all battery connection including ground to body are clean and tight. If good, make sure there is 12volts at the stater. If good, it sounds like a new sarter. Please let me know. Is this standard or automatic?
