    Dont think you can ,encrypted software .Look under ford escort and their i put a post on by passing the security system,now knowing ford motor company i would mind betting that they all use the same ECU unit on europeon and american models ,so find an old ECU in the scrappers ,open it up then look at the photo i posted as well and try bypassing the earth transistor thetwhen activated earths the electrics for the coil and fuel pump.Right iam off computer because sitting here too long makes my back hurt .Too many years laying under motors in the damp and cold

Back firing out of the intake is because the valves/cams are not set right. When you did the timing belt . did you set the crankshaft mark at top dead center of the compression stroke. If it's at the exhaust stroke this would cause backfiring and violent shaking.

My car wont start. when i try to turn it on an exclamtion mark on

The indicator light tells you that the computer is generating an error code.

To determine what is causing your problem, you need to have the OBD2 port scanned. If you take the car to a local repair shop or auto parts store, they can use their scan tool to download the trouble codes.

From there, the can tell yoy what the codes mean and present possible solutions for you to consider.

2001 ford taurus wont start and anti-theft light is blinking

Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start
