    well there are two ways to reset a ecm fault , the easy safe way is to use a code reader with reset feature (see my orig comment for how to get this) or the back woods scary way of disconnecting battery for 24 hrs then reconnect it (corectly)

The no power is a mode called "LIMP" this the ECM sets if there is a major fault in one or many of the engines sensors, to find what one your gonna have to visit one with a "code reader" this includes the "dealer" or a national auto parts chain store some of those even read the code for free just for the chance to sell you the sensor , this reminds me of one i had a year or so ago a guy that work with me parked his pick up under a tree and the next day it would start but ran terrible , turns out a animal that lived in the tree ate the wires under the hood overnite

Testimonial: "I can't believe this. The exact same thing happened to me. Something chewed through 3 spark-plug wires. Replaced the wires and it's back to normal except ck eng light stays on. How do I reset this. I think it was the ground-hog I saw the other day. I live in the city and this is the 1st time I have ever seen a ground-hog in the city."

Just bought a 2002 Saturn SL and it did fine for a couple of days and then the Service Engine Soon light came on. I drove it for a couple of days like that with no problem and then the next day I started...

You need to have the fault codes read with a OBD2 code reader or scanner, that is how you find out what system in the computer controlled engine is acting up.

Won't start was running fine in rain next day no go

It is probably water has gotten into one of the sensors and needs be disconnected and dried out. the only way to distinguish which sensor is to have a tech connect a diagnostic meter to the vehicle.

O2 lincoln ls check engine light & fuel gauge went to empty the next day it wouldny start replaced fuel pump & fuel gauge ran fine drove about 40 miles the next day started it up check engine light...

You have two pumps,I guess you know that ,if you already did one. Did you check fuel pressure at the rail and check out the electronic pressure regulator? What codes are coming up and do they stay set?

Engine cranks but won't start

I firstly would check relay. You can use an ohmmeter to check the resistance of the relay. If you get a reading, it is good, If not it is bad. Than disconnect fuel pump wire harness and do the same.

Lack of power when accelerating

You really should have a code check done. There are numerous items that can give you similar symptoms. Two places to look are the fuel filter (usually overlooked till they gum up, and the throttle position sensor (but test it first with an ohmeter. You will need a manual (vehicle specific ones are available at most larger parts stores and most of those stores also do code testing free)
