Ford has had problems with these easy fill fuel filler pipes leaking and the fix for this message as well as the leak that you likely have is to replace the filler neck. Before you consider replacing it, have a look and make sure the capless door seal is clear of any debris on the seal. If that checks okay then its leaking and the filler neck assembly will need to be replaced.

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
