Question about Cars & Trucks
2000 Mountaineer 5.0L. Truck runs great at 126,000 until the air temp. gets above 95 degrees and I run for a 30 to 100 mile trip. the merc. will jerk-get gas not get gas something like a clogged fuel filter but not. ive owned a carburated vehicle that has vapor locked and know the feel. EFI vapor lock? everyone ive talked to says no way. HELP PLEASE!
Maybe what you have is not vapour lock as such but a vacuum forming in the tank and not allowing the fuel to be pumped to the injectors. I would be checking the canister and canister controls to ensure adequate venting. I f the fuel tank has been continuously filled to the filler neck then fuel can contaminate the canister and not allow it to work properly. In short I would be looking for reasons in that area Run fault code check and see if any fuel related problems are presented.
