Hello, my 2002 Explorer Sport Trac was running smoothly then all of a sudden won't start. It acts like it wants to turn over but will not start. It is not a battery problem and it has gas in it. Just wanting some ideas before I go get it looked at. Thanks.

Earlier this week it started after a number of tries and kind of shook when it started then settled down. I started it this afternoon pretty easily , but it wouldn't start this evening. Turns over'...
