Alright, so when it doesn't start the engine just cranks and cranks correct? It just spins over and doesn't fire?

Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

This is a very common concern with this vehicle cause by high resistance in fuse 27 in the underhood fuse box. This is the fuel pump fuse. You will need to install (or have installed) a relocation kit Ford part # EL3Z-14293-A. If you pull the fuse it will be melted on one side.
