SOURCE: Water pump problem?

You need to make sure you don’t have an air lock. Find the bleeder valve for the coolant system and release the air. If you can’t find the bleeder, find the highest hose for the coolant system and make sure coolant is flowing through it.

Hi .
unlikely to be immobiliser fault ,so check basics,try a set of jump leads or check battery voltage above 12.5,if the clicking is coming from the starter motor with a fully charged battery then suspect starter motor failure.

2000 Ford Crown Victoria (police pkg) wont start?

The first thing you need to do is have the computer scanned for trouble codes to narrow down the possible causes. But that would require a code reader or scanner.
Have you checked fuel pressure with a gauge ? Are you getting spark to the plugs ? Because of the moan from the pump, there's a good chance the pump has failed.

The first thing i would check would be the fuel pressure, the gas being sold now a days eats away at the fuel pump and makes varnish build up in pump causing the pump to go bad.

A fuel pressure gauge is needed for this test, it connects to the fuel rail and give you a reading and i would bet there is no or very very low pressure.

Will turn over but wont start

On the drivers side fuel rail there is a shrader valve port with a blue cap, touch the shrader valve and see if gas squirts out, you may get a little to begin with, the crank the car and test is again, if you have nothing the second time then you are either out of gas or the fuel pump has failed.
If you have fuel then the car could be flooded, this is a common issue with the early Jaguar v8's.
You would need to crank the car and half accelerate, then slowly push the pedal all the way (which shuts off the fuel believe it or not) then back to half way, keep fluttering the pedal and you can usually get it to run, but be careful as it will smoke once running.
There is usually not an issue with spark on these cars, the crank sensors never fail.

Can not locate battery in my 2000 xk8 and the car wont start. It attempts to turn over but wont start Im trying to get a jump start but we can not find battery.

If the engine cranks normal, then the battery is good. You are looking at no fuel or no spark. Bad crank shaft position sensor or bad fuel pump or fuel pump relay most likely, could be other things less likely

Engine would not accelerate, now wont start

Sounds like the fuel pump went. Check for power under the van at the gas tank for the fuel pump. You need 2 people to do this,the pump will only power up for 5 secs/key cycle unless the engine is running.
