I have a fuel odor on my 2013 SHO which led me to this

Customer Question
I have a fuel...

I have a fuel odor on my 2013 SHO which led me to this forum. The recall #13S04 was associated with it. I called Ford they said my vin did not have that recall but it did have recall 16s31 which according to the Ford rep was for a fuel pump delivery issue leading to the car stalling. That being said is there a fuel odor associated with that recall

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?

No on both

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '13 Ford?

Taurus SHO

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Taurus SHO yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just notice the problem, can't see any leaks at all

The recall that is open on your vehicle is for the fuel pump control module. It can not make a fuel smell. It is strictly an electronic module that can fail so it is inspected and replaced if neccessary.

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 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.
