Question about Ford Taurus
The engine is rolling but can not start
Providing that your timing belt is ok and your engine tune up is such that the engine was running smoothly, you need three basic things for the engine to turn on. 1) Air and 2) fuel 3)Spark. To see if you are getting a spark, you can disconnect a spark plug wire from the spark plug and lay it next to the engine. have someone crank the engine over and listen for a spark sound. You will probably not be able to see the spark during the day. you can see the spark if it's dark outside. if you have a spark then connect the spark plug wire back to the spark plug. disconnect the hose from the throttle body. This hose comes from the air filter housing to the throttle body. Have someone hold the gas pedal down and spray some engine starter fluid that you can buy at the auto parts. Release the gas pedal, then hold the gas pedal down slighly and crank the engine. If the engine turns on and then turns off, check to see if you are not out of gas. if gas level is ok, your fuel filter may need to be replaced.

Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

Please don't forget to rate:
Bleeding The Brake System Bleeding When any part of the hydraulic system has been disconnected for repair or replacement, air enters the lines causing spongy pedal action (because air can be compressed and brake fluid cannot). To correct this condition, it is necessary to bleed the hydraulic system to ensure all air is purged.
Always begin bleeding the brake system from the furthest wheel cylinder or caliper from the master cylinder; the right rear.
NOTE: The right side of the vehicle is the passenger side. The sides of the vehicle are determined from the driver's perspective. This reference is taken from sitting in the driver's seat, facing forward.
Maintain a full reservoir during the bleeding operation. Never use brake fluid that has been drained from the hydraulic system, or from an open container, no matter how clean it is. Always use brake fluid from a new, sealed container. The front and rear reservoir will drain as the front or rear brakes are bled.

A good place to start is a ford dealer. Often they can cut you a key off the VIN number. You will have to go there in person., and some kind of proof of ownership would be needed!
