Thought this may help other owners, my 2006 Taurus 75k miles become hard to start after shutdown, replaced plugs, fuel filter, fuel sensor and no codes showing,
thought I would try one thing before taking to dealer, pulled the ground wire(battery to fender) used file/sandpaper to clean paint reinstalled and like magic Taurus
fires like new. Have no idea why but wiring was not making solid ground on second start, engine would turn fine but not start, most recommendations were bad fuel pump but that was not the case. Sometimes the most simple thing is the correct answer.

Had a similar problem on my Granddaughters PT Cruiser. It was running like crud and throwing codes. Cleaned ground wire, no problems since, has been over 9 months.
