    if you have high volts from the coil, i would suspect the ignition module.

I would visually check for spark at the plugs, to make sure spark is getting to the plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes?

SOURCE: locate fuel filter on 91 crown vic

The fuel filter is located under the vehicle on the inner side of the left (driver side) frame rail.

Should look like the image below:

This happend to me before. Go back and check the firing order and make sure the spark plug wires are in the right place. A Chilton auto repair book for your vehicle, available at many auto part stores are really helpful. Check the rotor and distributor cap also and make sure they seat properly. Assuming the distributor itself has not been removed it should start. If the distributor was removed from the vehicle and not installed in the exact position it was before (maybe a couple of notches off) you will have to find top dead center on the compression stroke on plug #1 and check to see if the rotor is pointing at the at plug wire #1 on the distributor cap. The distributor itself can be adjusted by loosening the locking nut and turning it slowly clokwise or counter clokwise to ****** or advance the spark. make sure all your vacume lines are in the right place also. All these procedures can be found in the book.

SOURCE: Wiper motor replacement for a 99 crown vic

I replaced the same part on a 1994 Crown Vic. There are a few bolts which go through rubber mounts on the firewall and that is how the wiper motor fits against the firewall. There is a clip on the wiper drive that must be pressed and slid off the wiper shaft. The hardest part was getting clearence between the engine and wiper motor. If I remember there was a way to turn the wiper case to clear the engine. I have asked myself why this was engineered like this? There is nothing important in the way that 3/4" of clearance could have been given for removal.

SOURCE: 1999 crown vic keeps getting air locked at the fuel rail?

check your fuel pressure
if you dont have enough pressure this will happen
when the fuel pressure is good the system will just push the air out through the injectors or the fuel return line

I have a 2001 ford crown vic 4.6 I have a crank no start and scan tool not working on this one


You will need spark, fuel and correct timing. Check the inertia switch in the trunk first. turn off then back on. Take off the plastic engine cover, turn on the key, depress fuel rail schrader valve and fuel should come out WARNING: fuel is possibly at almost 50 psi! If fuel is there, you have fuel. Pressure could be low, but not likely. Does it start now? if no, remove a spark plug coil, put an old correctly gapped plug in it and ground the plug (near the threads). Is there spark? if no, ignition issue, if yes, does it start? If no, reset computer by removing negative battery cable from battery for 3 minutes. Put back on. Does it start? You just have to keep troubleshooting until you have fuel and spark present. It is a remote possibility if you have these 2 things that timing could be off from a timing chain failure. Take #1 plug out *farthest plug forward. Does engine build full compression when the harmonic balancer indicator reaches zero? If yes, it should be running. Other possibilities; Fuel contaminated. Low fuel pressure. Bad or clogged injectors. Bad coils. These are less likely. Good luck to you!

My crown vic turning over but wont crank never did this before


The most likely cause is a bad ignition coil, remove the coil wire from the distributor and attach an old spark plug to it, have a helper crank the engine, and see if the spark plug fires. If the plug does not fire then the coil is bad. If the plug fires, remove a plug wire from a spark plug and repeat the process. If no spark then the distributor cap may be bad? Also have you ruled out no gas???

My car won't start,seems like no spark?/,just turns over and over


before u replace the whole dist. have u first checked for fuel delivery on the carb or fuel rail, and then if u have that then check the spark plug wire by removing one while cranking by arcing to metal , if you see spark then dist is good if not then replace, but if dist is good and still no start then check coil pack and or all fuses

Engine swings but does not start


Your testing so far seems to exonerate components #1 to #5, and #13.
Since you've already replaced a number of parts to address the problem, I thought I should try to be comprehensive:

Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect Ignition Switch - Improperly Connected or Faulty Ignition Switch.
2 Inspect Battery - Battery Discharged or Faulty.
3 Inspect Battery Cable - Coroded, Broken, Shorted or Poorly Connected Battery Cable.
4 Inspect Starter Solenoid - Starter Solenoid Faulty.
5 Inspect Starter Motor - Starter Motor Faulty.
6 Inspect Wireset - Worn or Damaged Spark Plug Wires.
7 Inspect Ignition Coil - Faulty Ignition Coil.
8 Inspect Distributor Cap - Loose, Cracked or Worn Distributor Cap.
9 Inspect Spark Plug - Incorrectly Gapped or Fouled Spark Plug(s).
10 Inspect Distributor Cap and Rotor Kit - Loose, Cracked or Worn Distributor Cap, or burned rotor contacts.
11 Inspect Fuel Tank - Fuel Tank Empty.
12 Inspect Carburetor - Worn, Faulty or Damaged Carburetor.
13 Inspect Fuel Pump - Faulty Fuel Pump.
14 Inspect Fuel Pump Strainer - Fuel Pump Strainer Clogged.
15 Inspect Fuel Filter - Fuel Filter Clogged.
16 Inspect Air Filter - Air Filter Clogged.
17 Inspect Fuel Injectors - Fuel Injectors Clogged/Inoperative
18 Inspect/Test PCM - Powertrain Control Module (Computer) defective - sending incorrect ignition/timing signals to fuel injectors
19 Inspect Fuel Rail - Fuel Rail leaking/broken causing inadequate/low fuel pressure.

Use a HEI (High Energy Ignition) tester to see if you have spark to your sprak plugs - if not, suspect Ignition Coil, Distributor Cap, or Distributor Rotor.

1987 crwn vic 5.0 l, 302, Engine runs for 5-10 minutes and shut down. Cranks but will not restart. After 12-24 hrs car will start again and run for 5-10 minutes and process repeats. When the car shuts off...


this is tough, two things I can think of, the first is the coil, if it is not ground good there wont be a good spark or a defective coil,,,, but i am leaning more to it being the timing chain jumped a cog,,, the computer would start the engine advansed but as the engine warmed it would ****** the spark ,,, after 5-10 min. it would quit,, this I would if it si a higher milage car.
