I have a 95 taurus GL. I live in chicago area so it has been really cold since tuesday. My car was running fine on monday/monday night. I parked it and got in the car on tuesday morning. It was really cold out that night, perhaps below zero. Anywho, my car didnt start. The engine turns over but it just does not start. If you need any more information to help figure it out, i would be more than happy to provide. I have no trasportation since and I really need help. Thanks.

Have you checked for spark and pressure in the fuel rail.
How do i do this? [/b]
Well, for spark, you can *carefully* pull the spark plug wires (at where they slide over the spark plug) and see if it has spark that way while your cranking. The spark will arc over to the plug, or exhaust manifold, or the nearest object (Which is why you keep your fingers away from the opening, it hurts.)

As for fuel pressure, the only way i can think of right now is the valve on the fuel rails, so i'll let someone else answer that.
