1993 ford mustang doesn't start

My 93 mustang doesn't start. Motor works but it doesn't start. There is no spark at the end of the wire when I turn it on. this mustang doesn't have an distribuitor, it has two modules with 4 spark plugs on ea. What can I do?
It looks like it doesn't have current to the wires..

Have you checked the ignition control module?? Are you pulling up any codes. The ignition control module is the little gray box that is attached to the intake manifold. If it is bad and is not sending the power to the coils it will not fire. If it is cranking over then it may be the module. If you have a check engine light that comes on. Then you need to pull the codes up to see if it is a faulty sensor or if your IDM(Ignition Diagnostics Monitoring) is good. If you get the shop manual from the local parts store you can pinpoint it with a digital multimeter to see if it is getting power to the module. If it is good then the module is shot. Most of the time it is the module.

You can get it at the local parts house too or order it..

i hope that this helps you out. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I have a 1993 Ford Mustang LX with the same engine.

One other note if it was the coils which is the little black boxes with the wires coming from them. If one was bad you could still get the car to start. It just would'nt start everytime..

The two modules you speak of are coils they are not a module trace the wires back to the ignition control module it should say motorcraft dis on the front of it. it is a little grey box on the drivers side of the motor. it is probably the problem i just recently bought a 93 mustang and had the same problem. the moduel had one screw of the three. one of witch was suppose to have that grounds it on bottom left of the module i moved the bolt to this position and turned it over and it fired twice then acted like it wasn't getting any fuel so i pressed the valve stem on the top rail of the fuel injection system it bled out a little then i turned the key on and off several times to pressure up the fuel system. tried to bleed it again and got nothing this told me it was not getting fuel so i went inside the trunk to the drivers side to the emergency fuel shutoff switch and it was in the up position and pushed it down and it started right up. its a fairly nice car for $300 and it only has 40,000 original miles!!!

I have a 93 ford mustang 4 cylinder 2.3 liter engine and need the wiring diagram for the spark plug wires. this is confusing because it is a 4 cylinder with 8 spark plugs and my brother didnt mark them...

The firing order and spark plug wiring layout is depicted in over-the-counter repair manuals like the Haynes for '87-93 Ford Mustangs. If you can't spend the ~$20 on one of those (available at Pep Boys, Autozone, eBay, Amazon, etc) you should be able to check one out from your local library.

My 93 ford econoline van it turns over but it does not starts

Possible clog fuel filter. Bad spark plug or wires.( usually spark plugs so check them first, oily, damage, dry, spark Etc..) Check engine oil if there's any mix with coolant. Check air filter. Battery must be fully charge( sometime it may turn but not fast enough)

Starting problems 1993 ford musting 2.3

i'm not sure what YOUR problem may be, but i have a '93 2.3L also. sometimes the ignition switch will work, but sometimes not. my solution was to run a hot wire from the battery to a 30 amp inline fuse, then to a momentary push-button switch, then to the hot side of the starter. not recommended as a permanent solution, just as a backup. make sure to use fairly heavy wire and switch. current should not exceed 30 amps but use wire and switch capable of carrying 30 amps and fuse just to be safe

V8 swap

At a minimum you would need to swap the motor mounts and change the springs to V8 springs.

My gas gauge on my 93 ford mustang quit working. the gauge is stuck on full. Help

i suspect a broken wire between guage and sender unit in tank, but the sending unit could be bad,find the wire to the float guage in the tank and disconnect it, if fuel level does not change then then touch the wire to a ground, if the guage changes then the wire is ok and the unit is bad, if it does not change check wiring and guage for faults.

Engine misses when accelerating

Did you put plug wires on it? Also these are good for having injector problems.

Car repair

i had the same problem just a little bit ago with my 91 mustang lx 2.3L. b. If you are not getting and sparks from your coil packs then im going to guess this is where the problem is. start by replacing all spark plugs and wires. if this does not work it most likely the coil packs ,But if there is spark then its your timing belt.
