I had a question about my truck. It won't start. It stutters that's about it. There's no fire to the spark plugs. There's gas and I can hear the fuel pump workin when I put the key foward. Any idea?

03 explorer sport xlt 6,I exchanged the motor an tranny an now have a 99 harness working from motor to firewall but not to the trans.what do I do without fabricating anything.

if it stutters its firing. idk what stutter means but if a cars not firing all it will do is crank til batt. is dead. and with an electric fuel pump id its NOT firing you will flood the cylinders w gas and foul your plugs anyway. chwck easy things like ignition module. xheck plugs and wires. coil packs. have computer tested. also check crank position sensor. it WILL NOT RUN if its bad.
