It also needs proper timing. Ignition timing is based on crankshaft sensor input. Also, valve timing may be off if timing belt slipped.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

    About the ford taurus, do they have a crank shaft and, or cam shaft sensor? If so where are they (it) located.

Maybe the fuel injectors are not firing even though there is pressure. Try to add gas to the intake manifold through the throttle body ( a few tablespoons) or use starting fluid to see if it starts that way for a few seconds at least. If it does, then the injectors are not firing.

Also, the timing may have skipped.

Run tests. Fuel pressure correct? Spark at plugs when cranking? Fuel injector pulse working? Compression test?

Wont start


You need three things for it to start. 1. air/fuel mixture, 2. compression, 3. spark. The easiest to check is either fuel or spark.

One very fast and easy check for fuel is to spray a TINY bit of starting fluid into the air intake. I emphasize tiny because a backfire will cause it to ignite and a large amount would explode causing a lot of damage. If it trys to start with this, it is probably a fuel problem.

Checking spark can be done quickly and easily by removing the spark plug wire from any plug and putting it on a plug that is then laid on a metal part of the engine. Crank the engine and look for sparking in the plug. If none, it is probably an ignition problem.

Those are not very sophisticated tests, but the are quick and easy and might start you in the correct direction.

Need help with a tune up and need a picture of where fuel filter and spark plug go I talk to someone from napa and they said that I can get a picture of my motor.


the fuel filter is under the car on the driver`s side along the floor board ahead of the fuel tank.the spark plugs are in the cylinder head.you don`t say what motor is in this car,4 cylinder motors the plugs are always at the front of the motor looking at the motor standing in front of the car,6 cylinder motors there are 3 plugs along the front of the motor and 3 plugs at the back of the motor standing in the same place as I mentioned before.you just have to follow the spark plug wires to the plugs and change them one at a time so you don`t mix up the firing order

My 95 lincoln town car wont start but turns over if i tap on the mass airflow sensor then go back in the car it trys to start but doesnt could the mass air flow sensor cause this ? and be my problem?


you need to check to see if it has spark at the spark plugs
check to see if you have fuel pressure at the fuel pressure test port at the fuel rail.
if you don't have either one then it may be the ignition module
but first check all your fuses
