Check the crank shaft position sensor located on the upper drivers side of the bellhousing.Check the plug and wires too.if its going bad it will create a no spark condition.

have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold to check for pump-regulator pressure and filter performance. You state that the filter was last changed in 2007 so it is well past it's blocked up date .. Run fault codes . replace the canister . Have a compression test done as the engine is getting long in the tooth and may need refreshing .. Check that the cat converter is still operational as they will block up the exhaust system and cause poor performance

Act like out gas when you first start it


stalls (or misfires) tune up time, ever heard of a 60k mile service?
and get and injector balance test, sounds like they leak,
and the starts are doing so from the flooded state.

no crank.
repeat that again. the key switch has many posisitions
no (this era) car cranks, in the non run or start position so?
my guess, is the start position (spring loaded it is) is intermittant
and when starting you wiggle key , in the ST posistion and the starter
motor wakes up. this is a bad ignition switch, which love to go bad
with huge key rings, (heavy)
if car is A/T tranny, wiggle the shifter any time it dont crank
and, try starting in Neutral (fresh switch contacts there)

Stalls is a 2nd symptom and if the dash lights dont die.
then is not related to the ignition key switch.
that is the 12vdc power system is good and the EFI/engine has issues
try a tune up first. (its in the operators guide read that)

after tune up and drive 20-50 miles
now using any newer OBD2 scan tool scan the PCM.
got DTC'S? post them. DTC are ERRORS.

2004 Taurus My extra key would not start the car and has not been used for months because of this problem (it would crank but not turn over) so I went to dealer to get a new back up key made (two days...


Need to take it back to the dealer so that they can program both keys correct. there should not be any more charges for this being they did not do it right the first time.

Probably the battery. Take it the chain auto parts place and they will test it for you.

1994 Buick Park Ave won't start


The security system will keep it from turning over on that model. You need to try a 30 minute theft learn. Follow these instructions closely. Try to start the car, then leave the key on for 10 min. Turn the key off, 2 or 3 seconds. Turn the key back on, do not try to start the car this time, leave the key on for 10 min. Turn the key off again, turn it back to run, do not try to start it again, leave it for 10 more minutes. Then turn it off, and then try to crank it. If it is a security problem and it is not the ignition damaged it will crank. Good Luck. Mike From Texas.
