Mother Focus Check cam and crank sensors, seems like electrica, not vacuum related.

SVTFocus noob Crank sensor is good I am getting spark, somehow two vac lines came off and now it's sounding a lot healthier trying to start. Still no start but spark plugs are no longer wet with changing mafia and the vac leaks. Wires are hooked up right to coil pack I never unplugged them and have a SE daily driver to confirm that. At work today but I'll look for more vac lines that may have come off or are leaking. Don't have a compression tester but sounds like it's compressing just from cranking. And can feel it sucking very well from TB.
Timing is good I re did the belt again last night becuz it was riding too close to cover for my tastes. I'm just prob going to redo all vac lines and get new spark plugs today and let you know where I'm at from there

sailor Never answered the compression question, but if it has spark, compression & fuel the missing ingredient could be timing - plug wires to the right locations???

Easy oops without marks on the coil pack.

sleepyboy Check your crank position sensor, no input from that and you'll get zero spark.

SVTFocus noob Ok so IACV is that sliver little thing bolted up to Intake right? If so that too is already plugged up. Yes gas does evap for me obviously, but once I start cranking with foot to floor nothing. Set the mafia to 0 like Tom said to try still nothing. Also the way I tested spark plugs lets me know the wires and coil are good too. Now if you are asking what wires and coil I'm using they are all OE (motorcraft) and the plugs are Motorcraft Sp-524's but they should still run the engine. The Sp-463's will be in at advance tom morning and I will install those tom. But none the less the 524's should still run the engine at idle no problem. I'm gonna go check over make sure there's nothing crazy as far as vac leaks becuz obviously if there was a big enough one it wouldn't run (encountered that the first time I tuned for 8lbs) but doubt there is a vac leak. The fact there's that much fuel in the cyl's & on plugs leads me to believe they are just being suffocated by fuel to prevent combustion. I'll keep you guys updated appreciate all the help!!

Idle air control valve it's right below the throttle body as it mounts to the intake manifold if your looking from the front of the car.

Edit: in that first recent pic it's in between the throttle body and ignition coil if you reach straight through that opening your iacv should be right there.

If you flood the car with gas try doing a start with your foot flat on the gas and as soon as it comes to life let go of the pedal to not rev it'll help prevent flooding and let the gas that is in there out. But the gas should evaporate after a while anyway so I wouldn't worry too much.

What's your spark plug gap? And what plugs are you using? Wires coil???

SVTFocus noob Iacv?? what is that and where at. no not tps, you can see it plugged in, in the background if you look closely. Did test with ground spark plugs and they all are sparking when crank. Thinking too much fuel, they are wet when you pull them and u can see a light layer of fuel on top of pistons. what fuse turns off pump to see if I can't Dry it out so they are smothered in fuel and see if they com-bust.

02-08-2016 07:46 AM
SrDudley Maybe the iacv plug? I know it's around that general area.

And that is your cannister purge valve for fuel yes you need those hooked up.

Spark plug wires in the correct orientation?
02-08-2016 06:12 AM
Mother Focus Is that the TPS plug?
02-08-2016 12:49 AM
sailor No RPM connector.

Silly question, got spark?

Didn't read back to see how far it was down, recheck timing & compression after it was all together?
