My family and I were returning from out of state when our '09 Flex stalled as if it was out of gas. The gauge, while driving, went from 1/4 tank to empty, instantly. The trip computer said that I had 77 miles left to E, then 0. When it stalled we coasted to a stop on the shoulder of the interstate and sat there for a few minutes. I attempted to crank it and it started back up. We drove about 8 miles to the nearest gas station and filled up. We didn't have any problems for the remaining 200 miles to home.
I've seen some Ford reps reply to other similar posts and am wondering if there is a TSB (I wasn't able to find one at NHTSA.gov) on this issue? Has anyone found a fix for this? I've seen similar scenarios posted and it seems the dealers aren't much help. This http://fordflexforum...hl= fuel gauge thread indicates that a fuel pump replacement fixed the problem, but, there doesn't seem to be a consensus.
Any other thoughts?
