Are you using synthetic oil? That's what I use, and I'm wondering if that's the cause of it.
I'm assuming your oil level is OK?
06-20-7 LONG CRANKING TIME OR NO START ON INITIAL START ATTEMPT - VEHICLES BUILT ON OR BEFORE 6/6/2006
Publication Date: September 29, 2006
FORD: 2005-2007 Five Hundred, Freestyle
MERCURY: 2005-2007 Montego
Some 2005-2007 Five Hundred, Freestyle, and Montego vehicles built on or before 6/6/2006 may exhibit a long cranking time or a possible no-start on initial start attempt. This symptom may also be accompanied by the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) on with diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) P0300, P0316, P2107, and P2110. If the vehicle exhibits the long crank / no start issue, reprogram the powertrain control module (PCM). If the vehicle just exhibits these DTCs without the long crank / no start symptom follow normal Powertrain Controls/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) manual diagnostics instead of this TSB.
Reprogram the powertrain control module (PCM) to the latest calibration using IDS release 44.24 and higher or 45.3 and higher. This new calibration is not included in the VCM 2006.9 DVD. Calibration files may also be obtained at www.motorcraft.com.
