    Throttle position sensor stuck in wide open throtle position, will trigger clear flood and no gas from injectors! Unhook tps connector and try to start. Can sweep test tps with a good scanner. This is a guess but has happened before!!

    our 2002 Taurus would not start either, my husband took the top off, I don't know what it is called, it is connected to the air filter compartment, Is is black plastic. he sprayed a very small amount of starting fluid into it toward where the carburetor would be, i tried to start it at the same time, it started right up and is doing good now.
