It's sounds like it is having the same issue as mine. Mine was vapor locked..I let engine cool release air pressure from vapor lock then started and runs fine. But still unsure what caused the vapor lock.


Also check fuel pump with a pressure check tool. If pump died will act like no spark or fire..There is also a relay for the fuel pump if it goes bad fuel pump will not work.

Got a 2002 Ford explorer XLT was going down the road and it just died. Done changed fuel pump and filter. What else could it be?
