Bought car new. Been running fine. New battery and alternator by Ford Dealership. Sunday drove car to mall for errands. Car ran fine. However engine would crank but won't start when ready to return home. Towed car home. Sunday Dealership closed. Did not touch car for 3 days. Thursday engine started after some cranking. Drove to Dealership. Engine ran smooth. At Dealership car started immediatelly and smoothly each and everytime. Dealership tested fuel pressure OK. Retested, no problem found. Dealership performed EEC systems tests and obtained fault code P1519 indicating IMRC stuck closed but this would not affect starting. Would like to fix the situation so won't get stuck in the future. Please give your opinion. Thank you.
