Why wont my 1996 ford explorer start it turns over but wont start

You need to determine whether or not it is getting fuel and spark. It needs both to start. Remove one plug wire and hold it close to the engine while someone cranks it over. There should be spark from the plug wire. If there is spark, you will have a fuel supply issue. Possible fuel pump/relay/wiring/fuel filter/injectors not working to name a few. If no spark, possible crank sensor/ignition module/wiring.

1996 bronco starting

Need to find out if there is spark while cranking first. Check at the coil wire first then at a plug wire.If there is spark at the coil and not at the plug the fault is the rotor or dist. cap.If there is no spark at all,suspect the ign. module. If there is good spark move on to the fuel pressure check.It needs about 40 lbs. to run.

1996 ford full size bronco,5.8 v-8. Replaced fuel pump,filter,cap,rotor,wires and it is still hard to start hot or cold and sometimes will not start at all and can smell fuel vapors.

Check the spark with an inductive timing light, and check the fuel system by trying some starting fluid.
Try a smaller spark plug gap, like .028".
Need to check the sensors, like temperature, throttle position, O2, cam position, knock, etc.
Check for operation of purge, PVC, and EGR valves, that can effect mixture and make starting hard.

Mis fire on cylinder 4 - Changed Cat. Converter, Replaced Fuel Filter, Replaced Air Filter, Changed Spark Plugs, rearranged Plug wires (made things even worse) and still not smooth and almost stalling at...

First off you want to make sure that you have the correct firing order down. When you rearranged the spark plug wires you might have made the firing order off and that could cause the misfire to get worse. the things that you should do to isolate the problem is to perform compression tests, fuel injectors, and also check the entire ignition system
