Just bought a 03 taurus with 48,000 miles and I could not get it started this morning. Wanting to see if I was getting spark I asked a passerby to turn the key and I was getting spark. There is a silver rail on top of the engine with a valve, (looks like a tire valve) and the guy put a thin tipped scredriver in the valve and the car started. Asked me to shut down, I did and would not start again. Took a hammer and beat the tank and the car started again but was loping badly and then stalled. I think it's the fuel pump but want to get other thoughts before I get into it.
