Addresses the slight hesitation and occasional stalling noticed by some
drivers of earlier NA Foci. My 2000 has a little of this but never enough to
worry about. I talked to my dealer and may get it fixed if the problem gets
any worse and I happen to have occasion to leave it for service.
I suppose this is going to set off another round of negative media hype but
it's really another case of Ford management dealing with a problem up front
rather than pretending it doesn't exist, and I think they deserve credit for
it. Based on four years reading of this newsgroup, it's not a seriously
common problem yet, but might get worse as the cars age.
My 2001 Wagon is doing this starting this summer, we had no idea what
was causing it. It's not constant, sometimes worse than others. Wonder
if it's the same issue.

The two filters inside the tank become clogged...which then burns out your
pump. Ford doesn't sell a pump only...they sell the complete fuel module
(pump with sending unit and filters)...about 200-260 bucks..depending on
where you buy it.
There are 10,000 of us on www.focaljet.com We've been fighting the pump
issue for several years. Several of us, myself included, have resorted to
cutting an access panel in the rear floor so we can get to the pump easier.
I'm on my third pump...first two burned up because of tank filters clogging.
