Re: 99 v6 Won't Start PLease HELP

if it kinda starts and goes dead does the theft light blink? Could be the PATS security not letting the car crank~ does it stay cranked when you hold the gas a bit, is it slow to start?

It cranks just fine. But never starts. The theft light does not blink or come on when cranking

It can be the cam sensor not spaying fuel at the right time. Had a customers ford windstar do the same thing.

The one who felt really dumb when this happened was my mom. She had just filled the car up at the gas station and it wouldn't start. So she had it towed, comes to the house I get in it and it starts right up for me lol

Is it clicking or making any sound when it turns over? Sounds kinda like the starter or alternator. If it was the battery it prolly wouldn't even turn over
