How do I find top dead center on all three

You only need to find top dead center on number one cylinder. Remove the spark plug, insert a stiff wire. As soon as the wire start to go down, reverse the way you turn the crankshaft, just abit. this is top dead center.

My 2003 oz rally mtsubishe lancer is not starting, the engine turns and turns but there is no sparks on two of the spark plugs I have put everything new and I still cant get it to turn on

Have you checked the coil pack(s) and has your car got one or two coils these can break down and it would explain why you only have no spark at two plugs.
if there was no spark on all plugs then i would say crank shaft sensor may be faulty..
if your car does have two coils change them around and see if the plugs that weren't sparking are now sparking .
iwouldnt say it had anything to do with the leadsi it defo sounds to me that its the coil(s).
hope this helps.

2003 bombardier outlander blew spark plug out of head . Threads are stripped what are my options.

What you need to do is install a time cert thread replacement. DO NOT use a helicoil, as it will not survive the heat.

You will want to have the head off for this repair, as chips will fall into the engine.

There is no simple answer, there are to many variables. If you have access to a scan tool, pulling the codes should help. Without them its back to old school hunt and peck method. At this point we need to narrow down the problem. You need to test for spark.
  1. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires from the spark plugs.
  2. Remove the spark plugs and install the spark plug wires to each spark plug.
  3. Ground (do not hold spark plug) the spark plug; check if spark occurs while engine is being cranked.
Crank the engine for no more than 2 seconds at a time to prevent flooding the engine with gasoline.
If you have spark, You will want to make sure you have fuel injector pulse, along with fuel pressure. If you have spark ..simply spray some starting fluid in through the air filter and hold the gas pedal to the floor and crank it over while spraying. If it fires up, you know it is fuel related( fuel pump, regulator, or ECM if no injector pulse) . If you have no spark then look at ignition coil connection and trace through to the distributor( if equipped ). The crank shaft sensor has a tendency to fail on these as well. This should give you a few things to test and check to start you on your way to narrowing it down. If you have no spark then look at ignition coil connection for power and trace through to the distributor( if equipped ). If it is DIS( no distributor). It may be the Crank sensor or the ECU. The crank shaft sensor has a tendency to fail on these as well.
The ECU uses the signal sent from the Crank sensor to trigger the spark and fuel injectors. ( make certain you have checked all fuses)

Can't get to the spark plugs in a 2003 Ford Taurus

I am assuming you have the 3.0L Duratec engine. Although the job seems daunting, it's actually easy to remove the upper half of the intake manifold plenum. This took me about 40 minutes to remove the first time I did it, and leaves the rear three spark plugs wide open.

A good repair manual such as the Chilton's manual for the 1996-2005 Ford Taurus has the step-by-step. You should get a new set of intake plenum seals (from Ford or most auto parts stores, which may have to special order them) along with the spark plugs. The seals are a set oval rings made of silicone rubber. Yours may not need them but if you damage one getting the plenum off, or if they have shrunk with age, you'll be glad you got them. They're about $16 a set.
