You might have a problem with your crank sensor or ignition. Remove spark plug wire and check for spark while turning engine over. When this happens unplug crank sensor near crank pulley then plug back in to see if it starts if so replace crank sensor.

Car wont start when cold have replace starter switch battery and altenator and starter, have used grismer tire and repair with no fix yet what am i not doing right


You would change the fuel filter, crank sensor and run a can of fuel injector cleaner in a tank of gas, you may also want to remove the Throttle Body cover, get a can of carb cleaner and spray the heck out of the TB do this while running throttleing it, dont let it idle, it will die out on you.

Keep in mind that the starting problems typically come from problems with the battery, starter, fuel pump, or ignition. Checking these things in your Ford Taurus can be done with a few automotive tools. Once you have isolated the problem, you can decide to fix it yourself or take it to a professional:
1. Place the key in the ignition and turn to the "On" position. The dashboard on your Taurus should light up. If it does not, it indicates that there is a problem with your battery.
2. Open the hood of your Taurus and check the battery for corrosion or loose connections. For corrosion, clean the connections. Tighten any loose connections. Attach a voltmeter to the battery. The red lead goes on the positive terminal and the black on the negative. On a Taurus, 12.5 volts or better are needed to power the car, and between 13.8 to 14.5 to run the alternator. If the voltmeter shows 12.5, then the battery is okay; if it is between 12.5 to 13.8 then the alternator needs to be replaced.
3. Turn the key in the ignition. If you hear a clicking noise, your starter is faulty and needs replacing. If there is no noise, the ignition switch could be the culprit.
4. Turn the key in the ignition on and off for three seconds, then on again. Listen to the Taurus. In a Ford Taurus, the fuel pump operates for only two seconds. When the key is turned on, you should hear a sound similar to a growl or "rrr." If you do not hear the sound, your fuel pump is not working properly to send fuel through your car.
5. Remove a spark plug from your Taurus and lay the wire to a metal surface. If there is no spark, the engine is not igniting properly, and you need new spark plugs.

1992 taurus died while i was driving and doesnt start but cranks


The sound you are describing is the fuel pump. When you first turn the key to the on position, the fuel pump pressurizes the system. This could be fix by replacing the fuel pump or even something more simple like a fuse to they fuel pump relay or the inertia switch that some vehicles are equipped with has tripped, which in this case, it's usually located in the trunk, behind the carpet, on the sides of the vehicle. It will have a small button that can be pushed back in. Hope this helps direct you in the right direction and good luck!

1992 FORD TAURUS STATION WAGON 3.8L V-6 WON'T START, NOTHING


Was this all done by a licensed repair shop ?
Have you tried moving shifter through all gears while holding key to start, just to see if any kick at all? (safety neutral switch may be faulty)

My 1992 ford taurus gl 3.0 will not turn over. i repaced the spark plugs , did a tune up, checked the injectors, fuel pump is working, replaced battery, and still wont start. anyone got ideas/


Starter fluid is used in some of the cold states to force fuel into the system without burning the battery. Same as wd-40 for diesels. This has to be a fuel problem. Have you replaced the fuel filter?? Don't want to guess to much,it seems you have been on it awhile. In my experience this points to fuel. Find out why its not bringing up the fuel. Good luck.
