I haven't posted in a while. Been busy with graduating college (yay!) and job hunting, not to mention my current job.

I'm still having issues with my Taurus. Little back history, I suppose:
In late May, my 99 Taurus (DOHC) shut off on me randomly. After letting her sit for a while, she cranked back up like a champ..but then shut off again a few miles down the road.

I was told by a mechanic that it was possible my Cats were clogged, but when I took it to the Muffler Shop they told me they weren't..
Instead, I changed the EGR Sensor (EGR 155?) and she ran ok for a few days but kept getting surges of power. I left my car in a parking lot for a few hours, and when I went to go home, she wouldn't start.

The codes she had before she wouldn't start were 3 codes P0171, P0174 and P0401.

My car is getting fuel, its getting compression, it is not getting spark.

I've changed the distributor pack, the ignition coils, the spark plugs, the battery, looked for frayed wires, and every thing else I could think of.

Why won't she start?!

How did you check for spark?
