coolant level may set a code but it will not stop the car from starting. there is another issue. does it crank? or is it completely dead?

If it's a crash damaged vehicle, the fuel pump inerital shut-off might have been triggered. This will remove power from the fuel pump and prevent it from starting. I believe it is located in the passenger kick panel and can be reset simply by pushing it. The owners manual should have details.

If you don't have an owners manual, download one for free at http://www.fleet.ford.com
