What you do is take either and old sparkplug from the car or pull one from the car and connect one of the sparkplug wires to it. Then with an insulated set of pliers hold the sparkplug so the electrode is grounded. Then have someone crank the car over. This is best done at night so you can see if there is a spark. During the day however you should be able to here a spark. If not probably a bad coil.

    not a bad coil no impulse to coil

    If you are not getting a spark from the coil then either the coil is bad or you engine computer is bad or the crankshaft and/or camshaft position sensors are bad. You can check the sensors by using a multimeter to ohm them out.

After the engine is spinning over, fuel is admitted to the cylinders and is ignited, and the engine starts to run under its own power. If a vehicle "turns over" but won't start, there is probably NOTHING WRONG with your starter, battery, or alternator.

No fire


Hi. This is a pretty rare situation for a taurus, no fire, (ignition) in all the taurus' I've seen only a handful have had no spark. The most likely cause of this condition is going to be a crankshaft sensor problem. But, there is also probability of having a security system locking out spark and possibly even a bad coil pack. I'd bet on the crankshaft sensor anyways, but check to see if the theft light goes on flashes rapidly when trying to start the vehicle, this will tell tale of a security problem with either the key or lock cylinder. The most common Ford no start issues I encounter almost on a daily basis would be caused by fuel pumps going bad. You should probably try and spray some carb cleaner solution into the throttle body just in case, and crank the engine over to see if it starts. I know you stateed NO FIRE but every so often I encounter a hiccup in the ECM that may be just a fuel pump shorting out signals and it turns out the fuel pump was the cause. Good luck, and let me know if you need more help.

I have a 2000 Taurus and it wont fire. It turns over but wont fire


Have you checked the computer for trouble codes yet ?
Could be a list of things such as the cam or crank sensors, coil pack, fuse or relay for the coil, and so on.
A mechanic would check for trouble codes then check each component for power as needed.

My 1996 ford taurus sho wont start, it will turn over but not start what could be wrong?


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Looks like that there's no current flowing that's why it won't fire up. I strongly suggest that you check and replace the coil pack if necessary. If the coil pack is faulty there will be no current to the plugs. One good reason why it won't fire up.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

03 ford focus no fire


Check that you have a good engine ground and that all battery connections are clean and tight. If you are not getting fire and the coil is good, then I would suspect a faulty crankshaft position sensor. Hope this helped and best wishes.
