Question about 2005 Ford Freestar
We have had the van since January 08. About 2 weeks ago we experienced the van shut down twice within about 5 minutes.
I had just filled the tank up with gas that morning. I had my mechanic look at it Monday morning and there were no codes and he could not find anything wrong. We have driven it since then with no problems until this past Tuesday when after filling the gas tank up the night before, the engine died again. All three time it died, I have been able to get it started with no problem.
We are going to head back home (8 hr drive) after a vacation.
The fuel pump reset button is the only thing I can think of to try when your problem occurs. As for your mechanic, believe it or not, might not tell you everything he knows until you guarantee him the work or his equipment isn't able to get the codes that a dealers can. If you have any warranty at all I would make sure that if you have anymore problems to take it to the dealerr and let them do their job. And another thing that might not be related, but is very important on Ford vehicles is that you secure the gas cap completely or it will set a code for that alone! Ford suggests in their manual 3/4 turn or better after the clicks, but it's best to do it until you can't stand it anymore.
