I recently bought a 98 Zetec with a crank no start problem. Only paid $400 for it so I figured I didn't have much to loose. 150k, interior is near mint, and everything else seems okay. Previous owner said his daughter was driving the car to Wal-Mart when it died, completely out of the blue, and hasn't started since. How reliable the daughter's story is is debatable, but it's the only info I have to go on. The previous owner replaced the coil, plugs, and wires to no effect. My immediate reaction, was to look for a broken timing belt. I checked the entire length and could find nothing wrong. Seemed to have good tention and no teeth were missing. I don't have the timing kit with the proper tools , but if it comes down to.it I will get them. I attempted to check for spark and it seemed like I wasn't getting anything, so I replaced the crank sensor. What a massive PITA to get to that was. After that the engine will burp during the first revolution of each key cycle, but nothing afterwards. I will be checking my fuel pressure tomorrow. What PSI should be there? Also what is the firing order on the coil? I tried to google it, but I got 5 different variations. Thanks gentlemen.
