Question about 2003 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

My 2003 ford tauruse will not start. I do not

My 2003 ford tauruse will not start. I do not have any spark to the plugs. replaced the coil pack. no help. I've traced the discrepancy down to the Cam Shaft Position Sensor. I only have 1 volt at the sensor when the ignition is turned on, I have the same 1 volt when i Haynes manual say there should be at least 10 volts. try to start the car. I have 12 volts at the coil pack 4 plug connector. Replaced the Cam Shaft Sensor, Crank Sensor, Coil Pack, all associated relays, read all fuses and all checked good. Even cleaned the Power Train Module.
So no spark and a lack of voltage at the plug for the Cam Shaft Sensor.
Is it possible that my problem is the PCM?

I'd like to know what pins on the PCM go to the CMP. I'd like to read the wires for continunity or a short to ground. My HAYNES MANUAL ONLY HAS A BASIC SCHEMATIC.

Thanks Keith.. kjrowe62@yahoo.com

    If I buy a Power Train Control Module PCM from a junk yard for my 2003 ford Taurus, can I plug it in to my car and at a minimum expect it to work? or does it require a re-program. If it needs to be re-programmed, who does the reprogramming?

Cylinder # 3 has a misfire...#1) Defective coil on plug or the spark plug itself...#2) Contaminated fuel injector...See drawings below...The coil pack is the smaller of the two and sits to the rear of engine it is the most probable cause...Although the spark plug or the ignition wire (connection between plug and coil pack) could be at fault...so, before you invest in a new coil pack...Remove from both ends the wire from #3 and switch it with #2...if the fault code changes to p0302 that wire is bad...next Install a new set of plugs....Fault still present? replace the coil pack.....Unless recently changed new plugs and wires are a plus even if fault remains...saailer

2003 ford Taurus been sitting up try to start just spins over want start


Crank but no start is either no spark or no fuel to engine.
Best way to narrow it down is to just spray a 1 second dose of starting fluid into the air intake before you try to start it. If it does start then die it is lack of fuel or bad fuel to engine. In all the modern EFI cars the most likely faults on fuel failure with fuel in car are:
1. fuel pump failure.
2. fuel pump relay
3. fuel filter plug

If it fails to fire on the starting fluid it is lack of spark, and the trouble shooting procedure will be to investigate the coil pack.

Replaced plugs and coil pack on 2001 ford taurus now car will not start


You will need to figure out if you have spark to the plugs, and if not- if you have voltage to the coil to proceed.

P301 Code on 2001 Ford Taurus SOHC (not FFL) with 253K miles. Replaced plugs and wires with Bosch Platinum +4 plugs and Motorcraft wire set. P301 returned almost immediately. Engine performance extremely...


Coil pack should in the front top of motor, with engine running remove one spark plug wire at a time from coil pack ( careful not to get shock ) they should all have spark, if one don't replace coil pack.
