Question about 1999 Ford Taurus

2 Answers

1999 Ford Taurus SW SE DOHC- my car will not start. The engine tries to turn over but it will not catch. Last week we were able to get it to turn over by spraying starter fluid into the manifold, but once the car warmed up it would die. Now it will not start at all. We replaced the fuel filter and it is still the same thing. I can hear my fuel pump priming when I turn the key (I believe). Any ideas? could it still be my fuel pump? We also checked the fuel pump regulator and had no fuel coming out of the diaphragm.

If the car started with starting fluid and you are sure you hear the fuel pump priming the system it may be an obstruction in the line after the pump and before the injectors there is a fuel filter usually located on the fuel fill side by the gas tank that may need changing.

Assuming the battery is good, you might need to replace the spark plugs. They will only last about 100,000 miles at best. You might also have a vacuum leak somewhere. If you can get to at least one spark plug and remove it, you can then see how bad it is worn out.
The other suggestion would be to see if fuel is coming out of the fuel pump at all. If so, then back to checking the plugs, If not, the fuel pump would be the next thing.

yeah check the pressure with a fuel gauge should have around 40 psi or so. can u hear the pump run momentarily when you first turn the key over? if u have no fuel pressure then remove the backseat and check the wiring and make sure theres power to the pump.

I own Ford 1999 Taurus SE, 3.0l DOHC; My problem is that car won’t crank, I removed and checked starter is working OK, but once I install it back only solenoid is clicking any advice? Miros.


The first thing is to make sure the battery is fully charged, then check the connections at the battery and the graound cable going to trany bolt, make sure it tight, also ive seen bad starters that start on the bench or with charger , this is a bad starter or low battery or a connection problem.
