Hi. What you describe can be caused by a relay that is overheating. Have you tried replacing the fuel pump relay yet?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Is there another relay that could cause that
Ford Mechanic: EricFromCT, Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

There is the pcm power relay also.But if that relay was not working the check engine light would not come on when the key is turned on, because the pcm would not be powered up. What engine is in the truck?

Ford Mechanic: EricFromCT, Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

OK great. Thanks for letting me help you. Please rate my service and have a great day.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
