After it dies will it crank again right away? if not then the alternator is to blame. its the generator for the cars electrical systems. fords are well known for not illuminating a battery light when the alternator fails, the sensor that does this is in the alternator, its part of the soild state regulator. when key on engine off, little red battery light should be on and go off after engine starts, if stays on, alternator is bad, or belt is off. let me know what you find and if you need more help

Does this engine have a cold start mechanism? I would check that out since it appears to be the source of the problem.

It acts like it is going to start, but it won't turn over. New fuel filter, no change... any ideas? 1999 Ford Taurus.


If you can hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key to the run position, then you turn key to start car...and the car will start and run for one or two seconds...then you may have a bad crank position sensor. Go to autozone.com, become a member and look up crank position sensor for your car. There will be a tutorial on testing and replacement.
