1997 Taurus won't start

My 1997 Taurus was running just fine, then the next day it wouldn't start. All the lights, radio, etc. work. I tried jump starting it & that didn't work. I even jump started my 2000 Taurus off with it, so I am pretty sure it's not the battery. What else could be wrong?

Mine has had that happen several times:

1- Cam and/or Crank position sensor

2- Fuel Pump

3- Alarm system

4- Last week it was a valve in the intake system.

But I still love it.

Buy a diagnostics tool from Autozone/advance and run it on your car.

I have a 1998 ford taurus and it will not crank. All it will do is just turn over. It was fine the night before. The lights and everything works on it and the fuel pump is working and I just replaced the cam sensor, but it still just wont crank. does anyone have any other suggestions.

respone to your ypu taurus not starting, if the motor turns over but does not fire check your fuel cutoff switch in the trunk. Mine all I a had to do was depress the red button.

I have a 97 ford taurus that died while my 18 yr old was driving. It has a new starter. Replaced today. The bayyery is fully charged. When you try to turn it over, it has a click sound with kinda whistle during it. I hate this car. I want to fix it and trade it for something reliable.

hey guys had this same starting problem as many of you describe with my taurus, had auto electrician try to figure out but had no joy but i simply cleaned my battery terminals and, added some terminal protector(grease like stuff), and it has started fine ever since.i think they draw a lot of current when starting as they have a lot of electrics to supply and if the current is too low they will just crank but not fire
