Customer Question

The car is a 1995 mercury mystique v6 with 130000 miles. When the engine is cold, it will start and run for about 3 seconds and then shut off. Can not restart. I have an ODB1 code reader and it keeps coming up with 111 (no problems). I checked and there is no spark. After cranking I can smell gasoline vapors at the tail pipe.
I've owned the car since '97 and have replaced almost everything including the wiring.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you have no spark yet no codes then the problem should be with the coil, ignition module, or wiring to either of the components.

What has been replaced in an attempt to repair this specific problem?

Has any actual testing been done?
