The woodruff key for crankshaft may have sheared so the camshaft wont turn, or the timing chain tensioner may have failed.A compreesion test is advised.

Is there a reset for the computer other than unhooking the battery or a reset for the fuel pump?


Could be the pump. Do you have the pressure at the fuel rail? If you have pressure and spark, then the noise you heard was probably lifter tap. No oil or over heated.

1992 mercury sable will turn over but wont start


Make sure battery has a full charge. If it cranks good but won't start, check the basics. Have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs, if spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. I looked at info for the 3.8L engine, 35--40 psi. Also, after you build fuel pressure, turn off the key, see if fuel pressure holds for a bit? If the pressure drops like a rock, check for fuel pressure leak. Check the vac line for fuel pressure regulator, if it has gas in it, the regulator is faulty, or a leaking fuel injector. The pressure could also drain back through fuel pump.
Also, check fuel injector pulse, engine cranking. Any applicable trouble codes?
Smell of the crankcase oil dipstick, if it smells like gas, either you don't change oil and filter very often or the engine is running very rich for some reason.

Car wont start starter turns fast but dont start as if out of gas.i have gas.


If the starter is turning fast you either have no fuel getting to the injectors or no spark to ignite the fuel. If you smell gas coming out of the tailpipe it's probably spark related. If you smell no gas coming out of the tailpipe it may be your fuel pump or a clogged fuel filter. Check the fuel pressure.
