Hello and thank you for your question,

When it will not start are you hearing the fuel pump run when you cycle the key on and off?

Have you scanned the computer to see if there are any fault code setting?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No codes yes fuel pump its turning over
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Okay have you checked to see if you are getting spark out of any of the coils when it will not start?

When it will not start, dose the check engine light come on with the key and go out while cranking?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It starts no problem with warmer weather and starts when its cold with a jump
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Okay what size engine is this and are you saying it dose not crank over at the normal speed?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Engine its a 5.4 coils are new since engine compartment had gotten wet due to rubber piece by hood not in place properly
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Okay but are the sparking when it will not start?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Replace in the few months all.coils due to wetness coming from rain into engine compartment

spark from coils
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
spark coming
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Okay if you have good fuel pressure and good spark then the next steps would be to see if you have injector pulse. Take a standard 12 volt test light and place the test end on the power side of the injector connector and ground the ground side of the test light on the other wire and see if the light flashes while cranking the engine over.
