I have a 98 Ford Taurus U vin3.0 I have spark at the plug and fuel at the rail the car is a no start and I can't figure out why. It sounds like the battery is low when cranking over but the battery was checked and fully charged with no help. It still has a slow crank and every once in a while acts like it wants to start I've checked all fluids and even had it on a computer tester at one point I dnt know what else to check or do and now the car is stranded in a Kroger parking lot and if I dnt figure it out quick they will tow it im broke at the moment any ideas???

    Did you try a jump start? If that doesn't work, and you have fuel and you have spark, then it must be that your injectors are not firing? You can test this with a simple NOID light from Autozone. If it starts with a jump start then something's up with battery or starter motor, or battery cables or grounds.
