I went to fire up the family wagon -a ford taurus wagon with the 3 litre


Its been sitting for 6 months or so with the battery out ! She alwaysd run good and never had a problem with it firing up !

I cant get it to go !


IVE got a full tank of gas -gas at the rails

Spark at the plugs


But she still wont fire !

The batteries werent connected for a long time ,could I have screwed up the puter because of that?

Any help will be apreciated as I was plannin on usin this to get me up to Harrison for the weekend !

the puter will reset after 30 secs or so of being uplugged so no it will be fine that way

Not hearin the fuel pump kick on anymore !

Openned up the bleeder at the rails and turned her over -no fuel -pump must be gone

Try banging on the tank while someone cranks. If the pump is the problem somtimes this will make em go.

Thanks for all the help guys !!!!!!


It ended up being a bad ground to the relay modual under the fan shroud -aperently that modual controls the fuel pump relay -the fan relay and something else !


Its runnin now :)

Now I just have to go do all my stuff that i planned on doin this mornin ! Im only 5 hours behind :)
