At my wits end

We have replaced coil pack, fuel pump, spark plugs, and wires, fuel filter, and number 2 injector. Had problem yesterday #2 cylinder misfire, replaced everything up there, and drove 25 miles. Parked it overnight and it wouldn't start this morning. It turns over but won't catch. Know its getting spark. Can put fuel in throttle body and doesn't help.
HELP!!
Thanks

Re: At my wits end

I had the same problem with a '95 2.3L. Sometimes I would leave it for 5 minutes, sometimes for 2 days and then it wouldnt start. It will turn over but not catch, like you said. Eventually, it would start, maybe an hour or two later...maybe even 3 days. I took it 4 different mechanics and no one could figure it out..not even the Ford dealership. I know how frustrating it is..I ended up selling it this summer and getting my 3.0L 4x4 so I could have something reliable. I changed all the things you did as well, still no luck. Others that I discussed this problem with never had any solutions either..they all just ended up getting rid of theirs.

Problem solved.
The fuel shut off switch on the passenger side floor board was getting tripped.
Thanks for the help.

Re: At my wits end

I have been running into this very problem. Very confusing! Where is this "fuel shut off switch"? Is it behind a panel or under the car?

Should be on the passenger side, behind the kick panel.
