Thanks for writing in about your 2004 Ford Escape. When the vehicle does not start, you need to check the fuel pressure and engine for spark. You should scan the computer to see if any codes are set that will help give the technician a clue about where the problem is spurring from. Replace the fuel pump if there is no fuel pressure when hot. If you need some help having this precisely diagnosed, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to the site of your car to inspect your starting issue and make the correct repair(s).
