Question about 1999 Ford Expedition

1999 Ford expedition

Check the fuel pressure to make sure that after the key is turned off it does not drop more than 5 PSI, if it does the check valve for te electric fuel pump is defective, this causes long crank times due to the fact the fuel line has to be pumped full before any gas reaches the injectors.

1999 FORD EXPEDITION intermittantly will not start.

You have a bad starter. A faulty starter will function when its cold but when it heats up, it takes more energy to get the starter to engage. Your problem is exhibiting the classic symptoms of a bad starter. I hope this solves your problem and the best of luck to you.
