INTERMITTENT CRANKS BUT NOT START

2001 Mercury Marquis

Engine Performance problem
2001 Mercury Marquis V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 13000 miles

YOU ARE SEEING CORRECTLY CAR ONLY HAS THIRTEEN
THOUSAND MILES, I PURCHASED NEW. TWICE THIS YEAR I HAVE HAD A PROBLEM RESTARTING CAR AFTER
SHUTTING IT OFF. EVERYTHING APPEARS TO BE NORMAL UNTIL I TRY TO RESTART THE ENGINE. THE
ENGINE CRANKS BUT WILL NOT START UNTIL THE NEXT DAY. IT HAPPENED THIS PASSED SUMMER AND
AGAIN YESTERDAY. ALL OF THE MAIN/PCM/FUEL RELAYS TEST OK. NO OBD CODES, NO ENGINE LIGHT.
THIS MORNING CAR STARTED AND RUNS GOOD.
I AM THINKING THAT THE ANTI-THEFT OR SECURITY
SYSTEM IS AT FAULT. ANY IDEAS?

This is kinda a shot in the dark but what about vapor lock. Its when the fuel in you lines vaporizes and becomes too thin to burn you say it happened in summer. Its usualy cause by high temperatures or sudden changes in temperatures. I would sugest wraping your fuel ines in aluminum foil. This will insulate you lines and hopfully keep them at a good operating temp. Like I said shot in the dark.
