See if your getting spark at the ign. coil first (passengers side on that year) if you are change the crank shaft sensor making sure you mount it as close to the engine as possible so it never gives you trouble again.
Not without more testing. It could be a fuel problem or something mechanical like a valve. You would do a compression test next to verify all 4 cylinders have normal compression. If they do, and that 4th plug wire was providing spark to the plug, I would expect you to find something going on with the injector.
heat the spark plug for a few minutes then put back in the engine. sometimes works when you not used engine in a long time. it will take a good few goes to get the old fuel out of the carb, the heat helps burn old fuel.
Verify if there is spark or not when cranking the engine over. If not, could be the pickup coil inside the distributor-this is what tells the control module what position the crankshaft is in, for delivering spark at the right time.
When you don't know what to do & you never
work on your own vehicles,I would hope you have
a local repair shop you found & stayed with for 20
years,instead of hopping around to different places
as most people do.
You are correct & did make a mistake by not reseaching
vehicle problem & recalls.
The Ford Version is better
I could write a book on any number of issues,but you
still have to go through the entire vehicle once you buy it
You never buy any vehicle ,even a new one ,without working
You need to change spark plugs,all fluids ,etc
Anything less than laying it up for a couple of weeks
won't do the job.
Very,very few people do anything but drive a vehicle &
maybe change the oil once a year
You hear what good care they take,but in reality have no idea
what to ask a repair shop or any idea what so ever what is done there
If it's going to be for 3 months, or less, tuck it away and cover it with a tarp. If it's going to be for more than 3 months, drain the gas and run the unit until it's used the gas in the carb. Pull the spark plug and give a light squirt of WD-40 into the cylinder, then put the plug back. If the oil is well used and starting to look dirty, change it. Otherwise, wait until getting it ready for use to change the oil. Cover with tarp. You want something that will keep the majority of water and dirt off, but allow moisture to escape.
