JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Ford. The Ford Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Customer: just cked fuel pressure and computer for codes

Hello, when it starts hard in the morning you are losing fuel pressure. There is a check valve inside the fuel pump that holds fuel in the lines and rail for faster starting. When the check valve fails it will create a hard starting situation after the fuel bleeds back down. To correct the concern you need to replace the fuel pump.
