If it is also not starting on starting fluid this would indicate the issue is may not be fuel related. What engine do you have?

Do you have spark?

Good question, wasn't there when the guy was troubleshooting it. That would be the next step. I would have thought he would have checked that, but I guess not. This has the coil packs, so it a bit harder right?
Ford Mechanic: C. Walker, Jr., Auto Mechanic replied 2 years ago

You just have to pull the the top cover off the engine this is easy to do than remove the one bolt and take the coil off you can either insert a screw driver if you dont have a spark tester. Should emit a bright blue light. Very common issue is a bad camshaft position sensor on this vehicle causing it to not get spark.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
