Lost fuel to engine on 99 Taurus 3.0 L. No fuel at
injector manifold. jiggled fuel cut-off switch in trunk and,
lo-and-behold it would start and run fine. Ford service people said
sometimes the fuel pump in the tank cuts out at higher temps. Doesn't make
sense that jiggling the fuel cut-off switch cured this problem since the car
wasn't bumped, unless its an intermittent switch. Looking for ideas on the
potential fuel pump problem, fail rates, etc. Any help appreciated. Thanks
in Advance, Van
Yep, did that also. Was a little dirty, mechanic said. I'll keep looking at
the fuel switch at this point. Still looking for any help with the fuel
pump. Just want to try to eliminate it as a potential problem.
