2006 mustang v6 will not start running.

Hello,I have a 2006 Mustang pony edition v6 4.0 that will not start.It turns over fine gets fuel. Tried starting fluid. Pulled number 1 plug wire and it gets fire. I have replaced the coil and camshaft sensor and did not help. I tried the crankshaft sensor and pulled the old one and it is still magnetized so i did not put a new one on.I am new to Mustangs and this site so i appreciate any help which i need alot of.

Is the Check Engine light coming on? If so, have you had it scanned for codes?

I find it odd that it would be getting fuel and spark. About the only other thing it would need to run is oxygen, and I doubt that you have the throttle completely plugged up. You may want to try checking a few other cylinders for spark. Your coil could have gone bad, and may not be distributing correctly. Unlikely, but it may have just happened to give spark on the wire that you checked.

Check for any EFI related fuses - you may be getting pressure to the rail, but unless you pulled the injectors and have confirmed their operation, that wouldn't necessarily mean that they are functioning.

2006 mustang will not start running

Thanks for thr information. I replaced the coil and it did not help. I put the original one back on. I reset the fuel pump reset under the dash and followed the directions in the manual for it and turning the key to start 5 times to finish the process.i smelled gas under the hood after that. It was running great then quit while on my way to work going about 50 mph. Any ideas? Thanks alot

When you say it was running great, was this before or after you reset the fuel pump?

This is the next thing I would look into. It could be as simple as a fuse. Also, don't forget about the Check Engine Light.

2006 v6 mustang will not start running

the check engine light started flashing on and off. the engine lost power but was still running. would not let me give it any gas. when i pulled off road it finally cut off on its own. and then would not start thats when i hit the reset button under the dash. but same result turns over fine just wont fire off.

we just pulled number 4 plug wire off and checked it, it was sperking like it should. also pulled the hose that runs in the throttle body and checked the butterfly and also sprayed a little starting fluid into throttle body but same result. no bad fuses under the hood. is there any more fusses we can check.


thanks

when i had my 2000 v6 pony after a few years the check engine light was coming on and off so i had the codes ran and one of my cylinders was not getting spark so i look and one of my spark plug wires was melted because is was sitting on the exhaust header.... so look at your spark plug wires and at your spark plugs to and let me know what you see...

A flashing CEL generally indicates a misfire. Check your plug wires, as well as your injectors. I would lean more toward plug wires, though.

As for fuses, most cars have a fuse box under (or in) the dashboard, as well. In my '02 it's on the drivers side by the hood release.

2006 mustanr v6 will not start running

The wires are in fine shape. I was going down the road and the check engine light started blinking on and off then it quit and i coasted off the road and would not restart. Thats how this story started. Is there a fuse that i am missing that i should be checking.

Thanks alot for yalls help

Check for any ignition or EFI related fuses. Sometimes there are duplicate fuses in fuse box under the dash that you would find under the good, as well. I would check any fuses that isn't blatantly not what you're looking for (such as brakes lights, etc...) and just rule that out. Have you checked to make sure injectors haven't come unplugged?

2006 mustang v6 aill not start running

On the subject of plug wires, They look fine but would a bad one cause it to not start. What about the computer not letting it start because of it.

It would run rough with one wire bad, but I don't think it would keep it from running entirely. If the computer was keeping it from running it would completely cut a resource, such as spark or fuel. Normally spark, but I wouldn't rule out fuel entirely. Like I said before, you may be getting fuel to the fuel rail, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it's delivering the fuel into the cylinders. Check your injectors.

See if you can get that CEL scanned, too. It could be giving you the answer, make life easy.
