My 95 Tracer just quit, and won't fire. I have a spark, and fuel.

Asked by Jan 19, 2017 at 08:06 PM about the 1995 Mercury Tracer 4 Dr STD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

.... don't believe it's the timing belt.  Is there a 'relay' or sensor which allows fuel flow to the injectors?  Where is it?

compression or oxygen, pull the intake off the throttle body and see if it breathes and fires

If timing and compression are good, check the crank position sensor. There's no relay for injectors, they are controlled by the computer but if it doesn't see the signal from crank positioning sensor, it will not trigger the injectors

Try spraying some quick start in the throttle body and see if it'll run for a bit, if it does then you know it's not timing or compression and most likely it's the crank position sensor
