When this happened to my SHO I discovered that the crank sensor had gone bad on the bottom of the engine. This item was reading a problem in the alignment of the crank when it got hot and it would shut down the car. The diagnostic machine missed it 3 times before they finally found it.

If you put a volt meter on the battery and it reads 12 volts before you cranked the engine and it drops to 10 volts or less when you crank the engine, this indicates you have a bad cell in the battery and you should replace the battery because it is not holding the charge. The loud click sound coming from your starter is because you are not supplying enough voltage to energize it.
Hi. This is a pretty rare situation for a taurus, no fire, (ignition) in all the taurus' I've seen only a handful have had no spark. The most likely cause of this condition is going to be a crankshaft sensor problem. But, there is also probability of having a security system locking out spark and possibly even a bad coil pack. I'd bet on the crankshaft sensor anyways, but check to see if the theft light goes on flashes rapidly when trying to start the vehicle, this will tell tale of a security problem with either the key or lock cylinder. The most common Ford no start issues I encounter almost on a daily basis would be caused by fuel pumps going bad. You should probably try and spray some carb cleaner solution into the throttle body just in case, and crank the engine over to see if it starts. I know you stateed NO FIRE but every so often I encounter a hiccup in the ECM that may be just a fuel pump shorting out signals and it turns out the fuel pump was the cause. Good luck, and let me know if you need more help.
it can still cause trouble, im a former vw tech, and you would be amazed at how long they last or issues that arrise, I watched a tech install an engine once because he refused to belive radio was failed,
If your in gear (D) for example and you hit the gas, engine revs, but car doesn't speed up, it's a problem with your transmission, and the first thing you can do is have the fluid level checked, and add fluid if needed. If that's not the cure, take it to a transmission shop & have it diagnosed.
yes it can but you may have a coolant temp sensor acting up which causes the computer to open the injectors to much which can also cause this 02 sensor code. when it stalls do u have spark and fuel pressure.
