    whenever I try to start the car,sometimes it won't,and all the lights come on,and it doesn't turn over, but makes this humming sound. sometimes I have to sit and wait for a while and then it starts, this doesn't happen all of the time,sometimes it starts right up,and runs just fine.

This sounds like a fuel pump problem and you would need to check fuel pressure while it is happining to verify to repair you would need to replace the fuel pump assm. and to do this you will need to drop the tank to gain access to the pump. But as I said you will need to verify it first.

sounds like it could be a coil issue after its been sitting for awhile it starts again correct? when its running the coil will warm up and if there is a small crack in it anywhere it will seperate and loose its contact therefore interupting the spark for the engine and it will die. or it could be a bad fuel pump or even cheeper yet check the fuel filter.

Ford taurus won't start when car been running for awhile

Could be your alternator not being able to spin enough current to start the car. Battery alone wont be enough to start the car. The alternator kicks in and helps. So check the alternator out. Take the alternator out and take it to autozone and they will check it for you for free.
