Any codes?

I had a 97 grand prix 3.8L that did this. No codes ever appeared. 5 years later I sold it, new owner drove it for 3 years before it wouldn't start at all. Still no codes, ended up being the crank sensor. After that was replaced it started up within a second of cranking.

2009 Ford Escape Limited - 3.0L, 6 speed auto, 4x4, 25/33 city/hwy imp mpg.
2017 F150 XLT-XTR - 5.0L, 4x4, 3.55's, E-locker, xtr chrome package, fx4 off-road package.
20/25 imp mpg

No codes apart from the lean code I've been fighting. I will have to look into that sensor though
