While traveling, I stopped to fill my tank. After putting in half a tank just to top my truck crunk and immediately shut off. I drive a 2000 Ford Expedition. Now after 10 to 15 minutes it will crank,
But when I hit the gas it shuts off like
its not getting power. Any
suggestions? My kids and I were
stranded and I had to leave my truck
so it can be towed.
the fuel system may have picked up something to Finnish off the already half plugged fuel filter, adding fuel stirs up possible debree ,or the station tanks have a lot of water from condensation and are low enough to be sending contaminated fuel, some older stations have been known to have six inches or more of water at bottom of tanks, rust also stirs when they drop new fuel at a refill, ask the attendant if any complaints are coming in!
