if the starter is TRYING to start the engine check to see if your getting fuel. if it doesn't then check battery connections, starter, fuses. if no fuel check fuses, pump, and filter. if it is simply not firing check plugs, distributor cap and rotor, and plug wires. HOWEVER if it ISN'T turning over, but the starter is turning the motor then check the TIMING BELT.

Ford Taurus doesn't start only makes click sound when turning ignition?

If it is a continues clicking sound you here it is probably the starter solenoid. This does not mean the solenoid is defective, it means either the battery is low on charge or you have a bad connection from the battery to the starter. Turn the headlights "on" and try to start the engine. If the lights are bright when you are doing this, you probably have a bad connection. If the lights are dim when you turn them "on", check the connections to the battery, if the connections are good, the battery is low on charge. Next, check your battery and charging system.
