Question about Ford Freestyle

1 Answer

Vehicle will not start after stalling, however it will turn over

I have a 2005 ford freestyle, 2WD with 56,000 miles. Vehicle just stalled one day. Will turn over but not start. Can't hear fuel pump from the rear. Have disconnected the fuel filter line and when I turn the car on, no fuel comes shooting out. Do you think it's my fuel pump? If so, what side of the tank is it on since I have a saddle bag for a fuel tank. It appears the left side of the tank has fuel but the passenger side is empty. Please help, Bill

Check the inertia (fuel cut off) switch 1st- it's either in the kick plate on the pass. front or in the trunk. seen a few of them go, have someone hold the button dow while you start the car.

Fuel problem


The problems you're  having with your freestyle are very common, whats happening is that your fuel tank is designed like a saddle.  
There is a fuel pump on the passenger side of the tank and a remote pick-up on the drivers side. What happens is that the jet pump, which is responsible for pumping the fuel from the drivers side of the tank to the passenger side is not working and so when the pass side fuel level is low. The drivers side still has fuel but it is unable to get it to the drivers side. So it wont start, but it still reads 1/4 tank because that is how much fuel is in the drivers side. 
From driving around, some fuel does spill over the hump. But without the jet pump working, it will never empty the drivers side of the tank. You are correct in saying you need a new fuel pump, it is one big assembly, and unfortunately, expensive as well.

Good luck and hope this helps, the only other thing is to have the van Scanned for any DCT codes.
