The engine cranks but won't start.
The engine cranks just fine try to start, fires maybe once or twice, then dies.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok, does the check engine light come on with the key on? Does it go off while cranking? Does the engine run on starting fluid? Have you checked for codes?

Engine light was on before and now even when cranking .I'm not a Machanic that why I called you. I'm by myself ,squirted carb. In those body then hit the starter. Seem to want to run a little more.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok, if it runs on starting fluid, then you might just have a bad fuel pump.

This vehicle also use a fuel pump driver module which controls the fuel pump. This too may be bad.

Another possible cause is a bad mass air flow sensor. The computer uses the signal from the MAF sensor for injector pulse width. If this sensor is bad, of it is left loose or even if the air intake snorkle is cracked or left loose, then the engine may not start. It may start and stall or cause a severe lean condition.

Just changed the fuel pump& assembly.
Can her fuel pump runing. Guess I 'll try replacing MAF.
Mercury Mechanic: Amedee, Mercury Technician replied 1 year ago

I would be sure to check the fuel pressure just to be sure. Also, make sure there are no anti theft or security lights on or flashing on the dash.

In addition, if you want to take it a step further, you can check injector pulse using a noid light.
