Question about 2001 Ford Escape
This happened once ten months ago. Had to tow it home. The next day the car started, When we took it into the dealer they could not find anything wrong. The car worked fine until last month. Now the same ting has happened three times. Once in the driveway after stopping for the mail turned car off for less than two minutes and failed to restart. Started fine an hour or so later. Same thing two more times when stopping to pick up a pizza and again at the gas station after filling up.

That is a false statement
You can put an Ampere Meter on it, when it is running
You can look at the motor running with an Oscilloscope
You can check Fuel Pressure & Fuel Volume
Your problem has nothing to do with cranking
Cranking is the starter turning over the motor
You have a no start condition, due to lack of fuel pressure
Now you see why I never recommend a dealer
Why would a professional tell you that stuff?
You have a complete fuel pump circuit with other items
that can be checked
You could install a new pump & hope that is the problem,
but if it took 6 months to come back I doubt it
