Hi all, Please help.
I park the car over the weekend and use the family vehicle. On Monday when I went to start the car, it will turn over strongly but the engine will not start. I do not understand. It ran fine before that.

I did some checking with spark plugs and there is no spark. Is there some fuse for ignition system? Bentley says that if I do not do the spark test properly, I can fry the ECM, so I stop.

Any sugestion is appreciated.

I had a ford that had "strong turnover" good dash light & headlights
kept turning over & would almost catch..

was the fuel pump.....

WAs it raining alot the weekend it was parked..?
maybe the coilpacks have a short or are moist?
spray wd-40 on them..."water displacment"
then try it?

You need to check for spark and fuel...
If you are missing both, then you might have a simple problem like a crankshaft position sensor.

Do you happen to know where the crank pos sensor CONECTOR is located? I see the wire goes in under intake manifold, I can't see where the connector is.
