Check the ECT (Engine Coolant Temperature) sensor. This sensor sends signals to the ECM to increase or lean out the air/fuel mixture and also acts as the old-time choke. If it is defective, you will have a hard starting the vehicle when it is cold.

2002 Ford Explorer ran out of gas put gas in and won't restart. replaced fuel pump and fuel filter still won't start. Cranks but won't start


Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.

2000 ford taurus fuel pump turns on then when car starts dos not aways tunr on


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

2002 ford taurus won't start - brand new battery and complete tune up still won't start


Sounds like your not getting any fuel..Listen for the fuel pump,by removing gas cap and put your ear up to it..cycle the key without starting it and listen for the pump..sometimes you can beat on the bottom of the tank and it will jarr the pump and it will start running again..Not a fix but a conformation

1996 ford taurus wont start


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

First, be sure that the battery has a good charge for if it's weak there won't be enough power for the starter to kick the flywheel. Second is, if the battery is fully charge and it still won't kick, the starter itself can be faulty. If that's the case, it will surely need replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My 2003 ford taurus stopped working. I thought it might be the spark plugs so I replaced the ones in front, but not the ones in back yet. The car still won't turn over. A friend said that when I put the...


If it will not 'turn over' (crank) you need to charge the battery first or see if a jump will crank it over-then if it will not start, you need to see if it is getting spark. You can tell by watching the tach on the dashboard, if the needle moves, it is getting spark. The fuel pump is in your gas tank, but you can determine if it is working by removing the valve cap on the fuel rail (top of engine) and turn on the key use a small screwdriver to press in the center pin in the valve (have a rag handy because if it does spray, it is about 50 PSI of fuel). The engine does not need to be running to test this.

1995 ford taurus no gas and or spark


Does the check engine light turn on when you put key to 'run'? It sounds to me like the EEC (electronic engine control) relay is not working. This turns on the computer, which in turn controls the fuel pump relay and spark control. I am unsure of it's location. Possibly under the dash by the passenger kick panel or under the hood. This is what I would consider the most likely cause. It is green in color. The fuel pump relay is in the control box above the radiator and under the plastic panel with the vacuum schematic decal.
