    Hey Explorer Fam. Happy 2017!!!!!!

    I have a bit of a problem. I have a 2003 Ford Explorer XLT 4.0 and when I start it it runs for a bout 5 minutes and the starts missing, and cuts off. If I try to restart it it turns but wont start, as if its out of gas. If I wait for about 30 minutes to an hour it will start right up, but five minutes later, it does the same thing.

    What all should I check , and in what order?

    Thanks in advance for your responses.
