these do not have any inline fuel filters

they use a screen on the bottom of the fuel pump in the tank

and there are no history or current codes set in the computer ?

does the check engine light ever come on when its acting up ?

No codes ever, we bought the car new and has 88000 miles on it, no check engine light, I really think it is bad fuel but cant understand why it would run bad after a 1/4 of tank
Ford Mechanic: Gary, Technician replied 7 months ago

i agree with no codes the odds are there is water in the fuel tank and or bad fuel

usually when they act up only at a 1/4 or below you got a fuel load with some water in it

with no codes set the next step is to have the tank drained out and add new fuel

that should correct this issue

if it still acts up only at 1/4 and below then there is usually a fuel pump in tank or fuel pick up issue in the tank

right now that is all we have to go on

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.

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.

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.
