97 Ford Escort intermittently cranks but won't start

Asked by Oct 13, 2016 at 06:54 PM about the 1997 Ford Escort 4 Dr LX Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My daughter has a 97 For Escort LX. It will start
and run fine for a few days, then turns over but
won't start. If it's left sitting for a few days to a
week or more, it will start right up. The engine has
been rebuilt prior to this issue starting. It has a new
battery, the alternator has been tested (14V
output), coil pack, some module (can't remember
the name) and the oil pressure sensor have all
been replaced. It has spark and us getting fuel.
Several people have looked at it, no one can figure
it out.
