Sounds like a timing problem. You can buy a chiltons manual for the car and it will give you step by step procedure to check timing and set it if it is off.

Can you confirm cylinder two is getting spark ?
If it is, it could be something mechanical or the fuel injector.

Compression, spark , timing , fuel for any engine to run. Don't forget a stopped up catalytic convertor will have the same effect as you described. Backfiring of course is fouled plugs, bad plug wires, look for arcing from wires when it is dark outside. If it has a distributor check for cracked cap, had my 91 GMC start backfiring then die due to ignition module inside distributor going bad. It would start back up after it cooled for about 10 minutes.

2005 ford focus will turn over but wont start, it started missing, then it got loud now it wont start at all


As with any no-start situation, someone will need to figure out if you are lacking fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs.
You may also have a failed timing belt and no engine compression.

my guess
oil changer
spilt the oil filling the motor up and it ran on to the exhaust
if rocker cover gasket isnt leaking
oil smell will go away after engine gets up to temp

degreased the engine bay with something cheap
then hosed it down with a hose and water went everywhere

firing order for 4 cyl typical is 1342
the leads will be to length from dissy so its hard to mess up

water may have condensed under the dissy cap or coil plug wires arcing in the spark plug tubes

all needs to be dried out

a dry rag or metho not wd 40

car should run ok after the engine bay is dry

Change spark plugs and now car wont start.....1994 ford tarus


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.
