    I even bought a code reader to see if I could catch it when it happens. But sense I bought it, it hasn't acted up sense. One thing that I have done was parking back -up in the drive just in case I might have fluid draining out of the fuel rail. But I don't think that is the problem. I do know that it can't be the fuel pump because the vehicle doesn't skip a beat when I drive. There is know hesitation or anything. I just know that when it doesn't start, once it does it will run all the time. This has only happened in November of last year and the year before and not at any other time. Nobody has worked on anything that could've cause a wire pinch or any thing. I am sorry that yous is causing you problems. If it wasn't for this problem, it is a great vehicle. If I ever find the answer I will post it.

    I'm stuck at procedure #2 I don;'t hear very well so I need to get my wife to help me as soon as she is available to get through the first part of #2.. My Mountaineer has a V-8 and the procedure you recommend is for a V-6 Is the procedure you recommend the same. I will buy the tester you have shown in the piece from Harbor Freight the next time we go to town.

    The fuel pump initial priming only lasts about a second, not a few. If everything else seems fine, it's a good idea to go rent a fuel pressure tester from a parts store, and check it. The 1999 up Fords should all have a steady 62-65psi running, or off with the ignition on. It should pop up to that almost immediately when the key is turned on. If it's low or slow to come up, then the pump is likely bad or going out. It is possible to have a break in the rubber line inside the tank, and that will bleed off pressure. So if pressure is a little low, don't immediately condemn the pump, although it's senseless to drop the tank and not replace the pump.

    You can buy a new pump on eBay for under $45;NEW Bosch Electric Fuel Pump Kit 69128 Ford F150 E150 Contour Explorer 1988-2004 | eBay
