Question about 1997 Ford Aerostar Extended
It sounds like possibly a fuel pump issue. The pump may be losing its prime because of a sticking check valve in the pump. Instal a pressure gauge and watch the fuel pressure after shutting the car off. The pressure should not completely drop off it should only drop a few pounds. If it loses more than a few pounds of pressure quickly then it may need a fuel pump. This can also be caused by leaking fuel injectors so further diagnosis is needed to find the source of the leak

Testimonial: "Thanks I'll tried that today and let you know."
Sounds like fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator going bad. After you turn the car off if the fuel pump or regulator are bad they will allow all fuel pressure to drain back which causes a hard/extended start.

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Ranger starts hard.
That sounds like it could be one of many things. Have you ever given the truck a tune up? I suggest the following things first.
New Air Filter
New Spark Plugs
New Plug Wires
Oil Change (and filter)
These are the basic necessities of an engine. Having a dirty air filter, or plugs that are firing weak can surely cause this problem. Try giving the truck a good old tune up and see how it starts then.

it can happen from a various of reason How about an alternator.if it not check the fuel pump. check the distributer cap and spark plugs.. If the car doesn't turn over then you might want to take it into the shop. Check also the solenoid.

check the alternator and the vaccum lines and the intake manifold to see if its leaking and check the fuel filter and the fuel injectors and the coil pack on top of the plugs i was having a problem close to your on my 2000-Expedition and i had to replace the intake manifold gaskets try these websites to see if you can find any information on your truck www.autozone.com and the other one is www.alldatadiy.com i would like to know what is wrong with your truck and i wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your Expedition.

Check the fuel system pressure--if low, a weak fuel pump may take some amount of time to restore sufficient pressure to start. Does the exhaust emit black smoke for a short time when having starting trouble? This could point to leaking fuel injector(s). Don't know whether doing a computer scan would show anything, but maybe worthwhile. Go to Autozone or similar business for a free scan. Hope this helps!
