The engine is cranking but its just not starting up, It was happening for a little while but only when the engine is warm, not it wont start at all. I thought it was the fuel pump but when I turn the key to on I can hear the fuel pump switch on and when I press the valve on the fuel rail I get possitive fuel pressure. I've replaces plugs and wires and and the starters been replaces and now I'm just at a loss. Any help?

Ok here's my problem. The engine will crank but wont fire sometimes. Took the car in and Ford told me they couldn't duplicate the problem, cause it started. I checked the battery and replaced it with a new one. I drove it for a few weeks and it did fine. then one day drove to friends house and it wouldnt start. Wouldnt start for 2 months.. then one day it started. driving down the road last weekend and the car quit. wouldnt start again. this is turning into a real pain in the ass... unreliable.. any help?
