Cam or crank position sensor?

If you're sure all the ingredients are there, it's a matter of timing.

It may also be a timing belt. You need to do a compression test on all the cylinders to be sure that its not a belt also.

had same issue on same yr, taurus. if the eng. has good cranking power then start buy listening for fuel pump powering up when you turn key to on position (don't start it) if you don't hear it buzzing underneath then that is where you start , it was the issue on mine.
