Question about 2001 Ford Escape
You are describing two different problems but I think I understand that the vehicle cranks over, tries to start but stalls right away (your last sentence "vehicle not cranking" suggests that there is an issue with the starter or the battery is dead).
Without question the first thing I would do is check fuel pressure. If you don't have a fuel pressure gauge lift up the drivers rear seat, pull back the carpet, remove the access panel. You are now looking at the top of the fuel pump. When you try to start the vehicle can you hear/feel it running? If not than its probably no good.
Fuel pumps are pretty common on theses.
