It starts fine. I have never had it fail to start. This has happened only twice. All routine maintenance is current.

it wont even start if I spray start how can I get it started

It does shift to first and second gear but it won't shift third gear.. the speed on the car goes up itself..I need to know what the problem is..I don't drive it and it's just parked..

What causes that problem an how did it happen

1999 Taurus SE Sport 3.0l V6 DOHC single exhaust auto sedan... I just purchaced the car from its 2nd owner who claims to have no history of issues. In the first week the wipers come on (usually 1 pass) by themselves and the car has just shut off while driving (not stall but die) twice now. The vacuum line broke for the EGR valve and was driven approximately 30 miles before repaired. The check engine light came on about a day later but the battery was dead and had to be jumped the day I dought it. The only history on the car was it needed new tires an allignment along with the sunroof motor replaced. It is due for an oil change and normally the car runs and sounds great. I will be hooking up an OBD2 meter this week to check the engine light. Can anyone help shed some light on this problem?

Daughter was driving and said that it started smoking from under hood and the smoke was coming out by the windshield. She was able to get it started and drove 3 blocks home, but car would only get up to 10 mph.

We changed the fuel pressure regulator as friend said fuel was not coming out of there when he checked it. Replaced it and then he said that the car was not getting fire so he told me to replace the ignition coil and I replaced it with a used one.
I was told that the car is now getting fuel and fire, but car still will not start. The check engine light was coming on intermittently, but it passed the Texas State Emission Inspection several weeks before this problem started. So I am not sure if this info matters, but believed I should include in this description as it might be relevant.

I have used an OBD II scanner on it 3 or 4 times and get no codes. We have tried everything and cannot figure out why car won't start. Help!

Now, our 1999 Taurus wagon won't move at all.
Is it a torque converter problem? Sensor? Or other?

blue smoke comming from tail pipe getting oil in one sparkplug well
