    2013 Ford Explorer XLT
    I own a 2013 Ford Explorer XLT Flex Fuel and I am having a problem when I start the vehicle. It always starts, however, it does not start like when it was new. It sometimes starts right away but sometimes it will putter for about two to three seconds and then it starts. Usually it starts right away when left overnight and also it will start if I start it right away if I restart it within 30-45 minutes after shutting it off. It will usually putter if I start it anytime in between. I have replaced the spark plugs, the battery, and also I have replaced the camshaft position sensor and pulley I believe they called it. Still not fixed and out $1,500.00. Please if anyone can shed some light on this I would appreciate it. Also, I have heard from a Ford Tech that Ford has a Fix It Right the First Time clause. Is this true?
