No stalling just stop no light drove it three hundred miles on the 25 stop running two days later.let it run at home for two hours run fine
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 7 months ago

What just stops, the engine no longer will increase rpm or the transmission no longer will move the vehicle?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Motor stop running
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 7 months ago

So it does stall and requires restarting.

Does this seem to occur when accelerating, coasting, braking, or stopped?

Just riding along 45 55 miles per hour.
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 7 months ago

So it occurs while pressing the throttle or while not pressing throttle?

Once it stalls will it restart easily?

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
