    Oh and also spark plug no 2 is very black and 3 as well. I pulled 1 spark plug out of the time and tested them for a spark and every one had a spark.I did do a head gasket a wile ago but fixed it and i started to lose a lot of water after i fixed it there was water in the oil so i replaced all the oil and oil filter. But have not seen any water in the oil now either. It is losing a little bit of water but not as much as it was.

Hello, have you solved this problem? as i have a similar problem, it sounds like a lawn mower and shudders while idling, and take off, it manual btw, any ideas? Still has power, but it stalled while on a hill 2 time in a row while trying to start it, and took ages holding the key in 'on' position to get it to turn over.

Im assuming this is a 3.9 ltr 6cyl?
any way there is always three things to check in regards engine not starting.

1. Compression
2. Spark
3. Fuel. "make sure you have fuel in the tank" first :)

If your vehicle is EFI

If you cannot smell fuel. Carry out these simple checks.
When the ignition is on engine off, Do you hear the fuel pump prime. This is noticeable by a short buzzing noise in the rear of the vehicle and then it will stop,

If noise is not present check the fuel pump fuse, then the relay, and last of all the fuel pump.

If the fuel pump is operational.
Make sure the fuel filter is not blocked and obstructing delivery of fuel to the injector.
If the fuel filter is ok, remove the injector plug from a injector and using a led circuit tester, or a noid lite. check for injector pulse.

If there is no injector pulse then it would possibly be a ignition module http://www.injectacarb.com.au/ford-falcon-eaed-ignition-module-p-40.html if this model of vehicle still uses a distributor

This only because I dont know if your vehicle is 3.2 ltr, 3.9 ltr single point inj, or 3.9 multi point inj,

ps: To check for injector pulse, using a LED TEST light just connect the test light in between the 2 terminals off the injector plug, and check for flickering of the led, this will say that the injector is pulsing.

A noid lite basically justs fits into the injector plug .

I hope this helps, let me know if you need more help.
Regards.
