Question about 1996 Ford Taurus

Open Question

I crossed my spark plug wires on my 96 Ford Taurus GL and drove it for about 20 miles, now my car won't start. Replaced the wires and the ignition coil. I have gas and spark. Could i have done damage to the ecu or anything else by running it?

Had the same problem with a Ford Ranger 4 cylinder. It turned out being a blown head gasket between 3rd and 4th cylinder. Compression was blowing from one cylinder to the other. Some times it ran great then others it couldn't pull it's self.

I replaced starter on 1989 f150 5.0 now have no spark


Mike, Check for diagnostic codes. Check fuses/relays,wires/plugs for pinched,damage or corrosion. Could be a lot of things like distributor armature, cap, rotor, stator, ICM, coil,spark plugs,wires, make sure ground is good to distributor. Use the attached forum links,instruction, guides to help diagnose ignition spark problems, Good luck

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.

I have 2004 Ford Taurus with 155000 miles and it started to jolt at times when I turned left (like the brakes where being applied). I've had the alternator replaced, the fuel system replaced and spark...


You are going to think I'm nuts but, it's probably the power steering pump or, and most likely the rack & pinion. Your own description of the symptoms are common indicators of a bad rack & pinion. The turning left thing is also a classic sign.

It will only get worse and, could jam on you while driving. You dont want that!!!
Have it checked soon.

I have a 96 ford taurus and the check engine light is flashing on and off and is putting like a truck.


The flashing service engine light indicates a misfire. You probably need a tune up. Replace the spark plugs and plug wires. That should be done every sixty thousand miles. The fuel filter should be replaced every two years. Get the engine computer scanned for free at Auto Zone and post the codes here for more help.

1996 Ford Taurus GL with no spark I replaced ignition coil kit but it did not fix. Battery is fine and engine cranks over fine. What else can prevent spark if everything seems to have power?
