1998 escort don't start first time,I have to crank the key at lest twice befor it starts, then its ok starts fine unless stand about for hours,then the same problem,can you help me pleases.

sounds like the check valve in the fuel pump is not keeping the fuel line full of fuel. try cycling the key to the on position a few times prior to cold start. wait a few seconds between each time you cycle it to on. this allows the fuel punp to run for a couple seconds each time, which will fil the fuel line. if this works, then that is the problem, sadly the only way to cure it, is to drop the tank and replace the fuel pump. good luck.

Where is the fuse box.

Ok, if u look down by your feet, when in the driver seat, to the left, there is a panle that you can take off. Take it off and there is the fuses for the inside of your car. Now your fuses/relays for the fuel punp, ABS, ect., is on the right side of your engine compartment. Open your hood, look on the left side, and you will see your air breather box. It is to the left of it.On the top of the box it will be a detailed map of your fuses.

hope it works

if went you start jump engine turns over, check for spark at spark plug wire if o.k check fuel pump persure if no persure check fuse and relay, if ok check voltage at fuel pump if ok replace fuel pump.
