did we have a vapor lock trouble?

This is a Ford Explorer 2006 4x4 with a 4 liter engine......This past Friday we were out shopping (wife & I) when I pulled into this store. Went shopping came out and tried to start up my Ford. NO GO!!! Engine turns over everything checks normal.... BUT the engine acts like a vapor lock. No gas and the engine just turns over???? Had the Explorer towed home, when we got home tried to restart the engine...Still No Go. 2 days later,Sunday AM went out and rechecked everything. ALL NORMAL. But the explorer started right up ......HELP this is a crazy problem...

I would get a fuel pressure gauge (loaner tool from Autozone, Advance Auto, or whoever has one in your area) and next time it does this, check the fuel pressure.

It could just be that your fuel pump is going out. Sometimes the result can be that it starts one time but not the next, depending on temperature or where on the commutator the pump motor stopped when it was shut off last time.
Please post your vehicle year/model/engine/(n)WD in help topics.
