JA: The mechanics have tons of experience in that area. Are those all of the "symptoms"?

When the vehicle will restart how long does it run?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Varies if I keep the rpm up it does better. (sort of) It still acts like it is struggling for fuel. My first thought is the tank selector valve. I had to leave the front tank at 1/4 full because it has a pin hole now and needs to be replaced. running on rear tank but can run on front with same results. The mechanical pump was replaced once by ford. I don't feel comfortable driving it cause the issue usually starts after 15 -20 minutes of driving. your thoughts? Thx James, Jeff

How long was the fuel pump replaced by Ford? It sounds like you can have a high pressure oil concern or the newer fuel pump can be bad as well. If it was replaced by Ford in the last year by Ford it should be under warranty for you.
