Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
The car turns over but wont start. i drove it home from work turned it off tried to start it the next morning it wont start.it turns over shot starting fluid in the intake it didnt fire. changed crank sensor still wont start
Do you hear the fuel pump working? and did you check the fuses? also check and see if the fuel cut of switch is on. it was typically located in the trunk by the hinges that hold th trunk or on the side but look in your owners manuel or google it. i would guess fuel pump in honesty.

Honestly it's probably just dirty spark plugs. Did you pull any of the spark plugs and inspect the tips for build up? A couple things to remember:
1.) If the timing chain broke, the valves wouldn't be opening so you wouldn't have any air coming out of the exhaust during crank. You said it smells like you're getting fuel, so I'm assuming that means you're smelling the exhaust fumes, right?
2.) The crank sensor tells the ignition system when to send a spark to the plugs. If you're getting good spark, it's unlikely that the crank sensor is faulty.
If it's too soon for spark plugs to need replacing, check your sensors. A faulty oxygen sensor for example could cause your engine to run 'rich', resulting in faster crud build up on spark plug tips.

Do you have the "firing order" correct? In other words, is each spark plug wire going to the same cylinder it was on before you changed the plugs? If you have done nothing else but changed the plugs then this is the most likely problem.
If when you try to start the car it backfires through the exhaust or backfires through the intake. Then this " IS" the problem. Good luck.

SOURCE: F150 cranks but wont start
Hi, You did not mention what size engine is in this vehicle or mileage, but your starting issue sounds like it is related to the ignition control module. I am assuming the fuel pressure is ok at this point. The control modules are known to act up over time and can cause a driveability problem that your experiencing. The module will look like this;
