1998 Mercury Sable: car will not start, cranks over but no spark from spark plug wire. Is there a fuse or is there something not hooked up? Do I need a new coil?

If you have no spark, I would test the crankshaft position sensor. If it's not that then probably the coil pack. Without a crankshaft sensor signal, you will get no spark. Same goes for the coil pack. I would bet on the crankshaft position sensor being bad. Good luck.

Where is the crankshaft positioning sensor on a 2001 mercury sable

on the engine block by the pulley:

It is the plug-looking part with the wires.

The Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor is a variable reluctance sensor that uses a trigger wheel to induce voltage. The CKP sensor is a fixed magnetic sensor mounted to the engine block and monitors the trigger or "pulse" wheel which is attached to the crank pulley/damper.

Need to know what fires coil 1995 mercury sable both wires to coil have power when key is turned on car cranks no spark from coil new coil what gives the coil extra power to fire

what engine? 3.0L 2 Valve? 4 Valve?
3.4L SHO engine?

The PCM (engine computer) fires the coils, but it is never the cause of a problem. I suspect it is the crankshaft position sensor on the front of the engine by the crank pulley. easy to change.

Crankshaft Position Sensor The crankshaft position sensor (CKP sensor) (6C315) is a variable reluctance sensor triggered by a 36-minus-1 tooth trigger wheel located on the crankshaft pulley and damper. The signal generated from the crankshaft position sensor is called the crankshaft position (CKP) signal, which provides base timing and crankshaft speed (rpm) information to the ignition control module (ICM) (12K072). Base timing is set at 10±2 degrees before top dead center (BTDC) AND IS NOT ADJUSTABLE. The powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) will use this information with the spark advance information to determine ignition coil (12029) turn on or turn off time.
