Cranks but won't start


Asked by Sailor1061 Oct 30, 2014 at 01:17 PM about the 2003 Ford Taurus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2003 Ford Taurus that cranks but won't start. This happened about 3 years ago and it was the coil pack. I replaced the coil pack again this time but it still won't start. This started out to be an intermittent problem, start sometimes then won't start. Now it won't start at all.

No it doesn't, at least I can't hear anything. I checked fuses and replaced the relay. My next step I think, is to disconnect the line going to the fuel filter a turn the key on and see if I get fuel coming from the tank.
