Sounds like a blocked fuel pump, or an electrical problem.

Im assuming this is a 3.9 ltr 6cyl?
any way there is always three things to check in regards engine not starting.

1. Compression
2. Spark
3. Fuel. "make sure you have fuel in the tank" first :)

If your vehicle is EFI

If you cannot smell fuel. Carry out these simple checks.
When the ignition is on engine off, Do you hear the fuel pump prime. This is noticeable by a short buzzing noise in the rear of the vehicle and then it will stop,

If noise is not present check the fuel pump fuse, then the relay, and last of all the fuel pump.

If the fuel pump is operational.
Make sure the fuel filter is not blocked and obstructing delivery of fuel to the injector.
If the fuel filter is ok, remove the injector plug from a injector and using a led circuit tester, or a noid lite. check for injector pulse.

If there is no injector pulse then it would possibly be a ignition module http://www.injectacarb.com.au/ford-falcon-eaed-ignition-module-p-40.html if this model of vehicle still uses a distributor

This only because I dont know if your vehicle is 3.2 ltr, 3.9 ltr single point inj, or 3.9 multi point inj,

ps: To check for injector pulse, using a LED TEST light just connect the test light in between the 2 terminals off the injector plug, and check for flickering of the led, this will say that the injector is pulsing.

A noid lite basically justs fits into the injector plug .

I hope this helps, let me know if you need more help.
Regards.

Probably gas or spark related. Check for spark on a spark plug wire, or on a couple of plug wires would be better. If you have a strong blue spark, then the coils are good, ignition is good, and you will need to see if gas is getting up to the engine. Do you hear the fuel pump come on?

2003 crown victoria cranks wont start, was running fine, just cut out.never started again


As with any no-start situation, you need to know if you have spark to the plugs, fuel to the injectors, and normal compression to proceed.

I have a 1997 Tahoe 5.7L 4 door model that ran fine all day. Next morning it wouldnt start. It will try to turn over but wont crank. The fuel pump does engage, filter is clean. Fuel flow goes to injectors...


Well,first off you need to make sure you are getting spark to the spark plugs first.Get some insulated pliers and pull off a spark plug wire,hold it next to the frame or exhaust and have someone spin the engine over.You should see spark jumping between the plug and the ground.If you do not,then you have an ignition problem.If you can spray fuel in the intake and it wont even try to start,then it sounds like you have an igniton problem.Verify that before going too far with the fuel system.If you have spark,then it may be your ECM could be fried and is not letting the fuel injectors open but it should still try and start if you are spraying fuel directly into the air intake.IF it has spark.

When you turn the key front. Listen for the fuel pump to prime. It should sound like a low humming noise that lasts about 3 seconds. If it does then check for spark by pulling one of our sparkplug wires and putting an extra spark plug in it. Place the end of the wire down somewhere safe and crank the motor. If you can't seek spark in the plug, it is most likely your coil failing. So, check fuel pump and fuel pump relays first, then spark. Good Luck.

Quick check is to take a fairly thick cable from the positive terminal of the battery and touch it onto the glow plug connector , it should give a healthy spark as it makes the connection , no spark no glow plug
