Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
There are several things you can check:
Distributor cap and sparks - check for moisture.
Accelerator manifold (the thing on the top of the engine which opens to mix oxygen with the fuel) - oil any hinges and clear any water/debris.
Fuel - I know it sounds silly, but it has happened to people.
Starter motor - check connections.
Fuses - Check main fuse box for starter and other electrical systems' fuses; are they broken?
Is there a clinking sound from the engine?
Does the starter motor turn?
Attempting to start the engine too many times may result in the engine flooding with fuel, preventing enough air from being able to mix, thus preventing ignition.
You may need to bleed the engine of fuel.
