Question about Ford Fairmont
Hi, If engine is cranking and not starting, dead fuel pump can prevent an engine
from starting, but so can a problem with the ignition system or the
engine itself (such as a broken timing belt).
The first thing to check would be spark.
This can be done by connecting a spark plug tester to a plug wire while
the engine is cranking. The tester must be grounded to the engine block
for a good electrical connection
If the ignition system is working properly, you should see a series of sparks while cranking the engine. No spark would indicate an ignition problem such as a bad crankshaft position sensor, ignition module or ignition coil.
