Question about 1996 Ford Explorer

Fuel system problem

It seems every other week my 96 explorer won't start after a stopping at a store or a quick stop at home. we've replaced the fuel filter in tank and below drivers seat,we also just had the fuel system cleaned about a week ago and my wife just spent an hour in front of a fast trip before it started up again. usually it takes 20 or 30 minutes. anybody out there have a clue of what it could be? need some help please! : )

    I see you said you replaced the fuel filter in the tank and the one under the drivers side. So my question is did you replace the fuel pump?

Won't start

Check the fuel injectors, with the key on one side of the two wire connector will have battery voltage, if none is present then check the ECM fuses in the underhood fuel box.
