This is not much information to go on; but I can ask questions, and you can check.
Does this have the 4.0? Does it have a chipped ignition key? Does it have a security system? I am going to guess you have recently cut a new key? I am not sure, but think you have a key with a chip in it. If you switched keys, you will need to have the key programmed. If you have the old key, try going back to that and it may start. I know you are looking at the engine, but if this suddenly started, it could be the key. If it was running rough and then stopped, you may need something as simple as cap and rotor(4.0).

How do you replace spark plugs on f150 4.6 2007

It can be faulty or dirty spark plug itself. Also for reference get the fuel level checked. Is the fuel tank is empty or near to empty.
Try cleaning the spark plugs and then see if that is helping. On some cases the black carbon layer gets collected on the spark plugs and that causes the problem, so cleaning the plugs help. But if its not helping, then spark plug has to be replaced. Spark plugs get power from ignition coil to ignite sparks. If ignition coils are faulty then also there will no spark. --------------

it's can do, but you must have a good knowledge to do it, i will guide you how to do it, first get right spark plugs for your particular car, it's very impotent to get right spark plugs, otherwise it will get damaged engine, first remove top cover of engine, then very carefully remove spark plug lids from spark plug, keep in mind don't pull spark plug lids form wire it will brake easily, you must pull lids from plastic holder which is in side the head cover, after remove lids have good look inside holes before remove spark plugs, if you can see any dirty or dust inside hole between plug and housing you must remove that otherwise wen you remove spark plugs it will fall inside the combustion chamber, use high presser air to blow it, then you need right spark plug box for remove spark plug after remove the spark plugs get one spark plug to spear parts shop, and ask right one for that model, wise salesmen know how to find the right one, don't use any duplicate cheep spark plugs, even new spark plugs check the spark gaps all are the same, if you see any one deferant than outhers need to be correct the gap using piller Gage mus be use 33 lip on your piller Gage to set gap, then first your spark plug fix in to the plug box spanner and lowly insert in to the plug hole and tight it, don't let spark plug to fall in to the hole when you insert it, if it fall in, it can be change spark gap in your new plug, spark plug tighten tourque is 25nm, don't tight toomuch or don't let box spanner to angle when you tight, keep hold middle of hole when you tight it, it can crack ceramic part of spark plug, if one spark plug cracked it will make misfiring the engine, after replace all spark plugs clean lids hole using rags if its wet or oily, then install and press it in to the spark plug hole you can hear locking noise wen it get right. be careful don't mix up lids better keep mark all the lids if not numbers in lids, is this information helped you?

Turns over but won;t start

Hello,well there are only 2 things that make any engine run...fuel and spark.. #1. to check if your getting spark you want to use a pair of pliers with rubber grips( if not you will get shocked ) then pull one of the spark plug wires off the plug (and if you have an old spark plug laying around you can put it on that wire turn engine over and see if you get a spark.) and holding it a 1/4" inch away from plug(or any metal surface of frame) have someone else turn engine over and see if your getting any spark?( its easier to see spark at night.) #2. if you have spark,then its in the fuel system.( will be your fuel pump,fuel pump relay,clogged fuel filter,ect.) if you dont have spark,it will more than likely be your ignition coil... good luck...yz-maniac.

I want to change my spark plugs

First get the spark plugs, then get the right swivel socket for the spark plugs and a gapper for the gap of the spark plugs.

Remove the boot, from the first spark plug, and..

Unscrew each spark plug one at a time (making sure not to mix up the spark plug wires) using a ratchet and extension, and the swivel spark plug socket by turning counter clockwise.

Carefully gap each spark plug, if needed, and insert by hand and slowly screw in each spark plug, making sure not to cross thread.

Put the boot back on to each spark plug, making sure that you squeeze down the connector a little bit to ensure a good tight connection.

Remember, replace one spark plug at a time and replace the boot in order to not get the firing order mixed up.

Truck will npt start

check to see if your getting spark, if you are make sure your getting fuel. if no spark check coil primary resistance it should be from 1 to 3 ohms. if your not getting spark it can only be a primary ignition problem not a secondary one, example plugs,plug wires. if you are getting spark but no fuel. pull fuel pump relay and jumper wire together #30 and #87 teminals diagnally across from each other under the relay you just pulled out good luck!!!

May have no spark due to a bad crank sensor, which is responsible for spark when it gets a pulse through the cars' computer.

1989 Honda Prelude won't start

I suspect that your spark plug wires or your distributor is going out. Check your spark wires and distributor. To do that take out #1 spark plug wire from the spark plug. Next take out your spark plug then put it in the spark plug wire. Then turn on car and take a look at the spark plug to see if it's getting a spark. Do this with all the spark plug. If it is your spark plug wire I would replace all of them.
