Not the IAC, or MAF, or 02

Does the Van Crank over?
Have you checked the IGN Relays? 1,2,and 3?
How did the Battery test out?
Anything below 11.9v battery is dead.
So I suggest that you do not throw any more parts and check the battery again.

Could be the ignition coil or ignition module. Also check the ignition fuse.

The PCM is located in the rear right corner of the engine compartment, sticking to the firewall:

The PCM can be replaced with a new or used god-working one. In both cases the PCM must be reprogrammed using a Tech 2 tool that costs about $3000. The operation is done at the garage.

The PCM is unlikely causing misfire on a single cylinder. Check wires going to spark plugs. If the coil is getting no 12V on the ignition side check ignition. It is strange that one coil has no power, the engine usually does not start when that happens because the same coil gives power to spark plugs on different cylinders.

Check if there is a capacitor fixed to the head aside the coil (there should be one). It should be cylindrical and one inch long, held by a single screw and located aside the coil. If there is a capacitor, that must be replaced with the coil. If you have not replaced the capacitor that is probably involved in the problem.

If you have already replaced crankshaft position sensor, check crankshaft position sensor harness in PCM. I uploaded here the bulletin with CKPS to PCM testing:2003 Taurus CKPK PCM testing.

Test the PCM and CKPS connectors. Check again voltage to coils and spark plug cables. I understood that spark plug cable nr.3 has no spark from coil. Check DC in from ignition to coil.

Automatic seatbelt stopped moving on the drivers side on my 1994 ford escort lx.What are the steps to follow to fix this?

There is a small circle of plastic on the lower part of the B-pillar of the car, use the Allen wrench that should be in your owners manual to turn the screw inside until it is all the way up then use the emergency disconnect to get in-out. A bit inconvenient but at least you will have a seat-belt.

Spark plug torque

Hi there;
Torque for your spark plugs is 7-15 ft lbs. You want to make sure the engine is not hot when you change them or you may ruin the threads. I also recommend you put some anti-seeze (like zinc-cote or copper cote) on the threads of the plugs to ensure they don't seize in after a long period of time.

Hope this helps
