Bad coil or coil not plugged in all the way. It should not be related to you doing the heads as the spark is controlled by the brain. I would check the pins in the coil pack and the connector just to be sure they didn't get bent. The 3.8l motor is very interesting on how the head bolts get tightened.

A COMMON PROBLEM I'VE SEEN MANY TIMES IS THE CRANK SENSOR DISRUPTING COMMUNICATION WITH PCM. UNPLUG THE CRANK SENSOR AND CHECK FOR RESPONSE OF PCM. IF COMMUNICATION IS NOW POSSIBLE YOU HAVE A BAD CRANK SENSOR. IT'S A PROBLEM I'VE SEEN NUMEROUS TIMES. DOUBLE CHECK YOUR TIMING.

If you live in the US, take it into an Auto zone store and they will read off the stored codes for you. Once you have the codes you can decide on a course of action.
Other major auto parts outlets may offer the same service, as they all want your parts business. Give them a call.

Hope this is of some help.

Still trouble with my 2001 Ford Windstar after replacing spark plugs and wires. It always starts instantly though still running a little rough. Sometimes the power doesn't kick right in to climb


I would suggest you run a compression check on this engine and also have the coolant recovery tank tested for the presence of combustion gases with a gas analyzer, any gases would indicate a leaking head gasket. Any engine cylinder that is lower than 5% of the highest reading cylinder in pounds per square inch has a problem like a scored cylinder or leaking intake or exhaust valve seat.

I have replaced the head gasket on my 2000 sephia. Had the head surfaced and valves seated and checked, after haveing all that done i get it put back togather and all the wireing checked, now it wont start...


No fire at the plugs means no power to the coil/coils or the coil/coils are bad. You say it won't start, I'll take that it does crank over and won't fire. You have to have power from the switch to the coil, coil to distributor, and cranking sends fire to plugs. With a test light, check that there IS power from the switch and ongoing. This is a must do.

No spark indicates four possible places,
1 The ignition module

It does not sound good its possible with that high mileage the engine has internal damage.Also if you did not have the cylinder heads checked by a machine shop that could pose a problem also.We have replaced so many of those engines that i could not tell you how many ive actually replaced.At this point i would suggest that you install a low mileage salvage engine if you want it to be dependable.

Engine missing but no check engine light on


when mine did that it was the coil pack... if you are brave and have some heavy duty rubber gloves... start the motor and pull one lead at a time from the coil pack... any change in the motor... if not plug it back in and move to the next wire. if you unplug a wire and notice no change it's likely you have found your problem.

As a side note when you replace the coil pack it goes 1.2.3 but when you do the next side it's 4.6.5. (engineering humour i think)
