It could be bad plugs, plug wires, a bad ground will do this as well. Check to see if it has the three main things.

Spark
Air
Fuel

Anther common problem is the crank shaft speed sensor. It will cause it to not spark and not start.

SOURCE: diesel ford will crank but wont start acts like

If you have the 6.0 ltr diesel, then check the bowl where the 2nd fuel filter is, see if there is fuel in the bowl, if not then either your fuel pump which is on the frame under the driver's side in the water seperator/ heater has gone bad, or your filters could be bad, or the fuse to the fuel pump or the pump shut off switch which is located on the side panel at your feet on the passengers side, there is a reset button, make sure it has not popped and press it down, hopefully this helps, I had the same prob.

Run tests. Fuel pressure correct? Spark at plugs when cranking? Fuel injector pulse working? Compression test?

2000 ford 4.0 explorer cranks but fails to start. It acts like it starts after sitting all night but then only cranks, what is wrong?


Check for spark to the sparkplug. Try a shot of starting fluid as having gas pumping and having the fuel injectors opening are 2 different things. If you have spark, then the fuel injectors may not be working. Quick diagnosis is to use starting fluid and see if engine tries to run. This indicates problem is not lack of spark but lack of fuel getting into cylinders.

My 1991 ford festiva wont crank replaced fuel pump and screen and fuel filter and fuel pump relay still wont crank and we have pushed the reset button what now help pls


Won't crank? Problem is with starter-have it tested.
If it cranks and won't start, check for spark at one of the spark plug wires. If no spark when the engine is cranking, the ignition circuit is the problem.

I let my 2000 ford taurus sit for 6 weeks and now it wont start


place a screwdriver or metal object between your ear and gas tank. Have helper turn key on but dont actually crank. you should hear the fuel pump buzz for approximatey 2 seconds each time you do this. This is the first step in solving this problem. If the fuel pump works, post again.

It acts like it is going to start, but it won't turn over. New fuel filter, no change... any ideas? 1999 Ford Taurus.


If you can hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key to the run position, then you turn key to start car...and the car will start and run for one or two seconds...then you may have a bad crank position sensor. Go to autozone.com, become a member and look up crank position sensor for your car. There will be a tutorial on testing and replacement.

My 1994 Ford Taurus wont start. Have checked the battery and it is ok. Can someone help me out i Think it is the starter but not sure.


You need to supply more information. Does the engine crank but won't start or does it not crank at all. If it cranks and wont start the problem is either no fuel or no ignition. Check to see if you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail service port. If you don't you may need a new electric fuel pump. If you do have fuel pressure see if you have ignition at one of the spark plugs. If you do then you have to see if the fuel injectors are working. If you don't have spark you need to find out why. At this point you need to be a fair auto tech. or turn the job over to one because it is going to need some special diagnostic test made with special test equipment.

1992 Ford Taurus wagon not starting, but turns over


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.
