5 posts in this topic

Ok Ford guys here ya go. My wagon will cut out and die when under 1/2 tank of fuel on I believe left hand turns, but not right hand turns. Obviously something with fuel pickup, any ideas? 1.9 L Manual

Man, this is an easy one, but I can not put my finger on what it is. It was a very common concern.

I would say fuel pump at this point, but could be wrong.

jasper, I will look this up tomorrow, but I remember something about a bad fuel pump ground. Or like shack said a bad fuel pump. Most likely the pick up hose in the tank is sucking air.

I don't rember specifically what years had this problem but it might be worth pulling the back seat (5 second job) to see what kind of shape the wiring harness to the pump is in. Back in the day I gutted a few escort interiors to replace them. They would rub through under the seat and burn up. This problem would cause all kinds of symptoms.

I kind of like the idea of pulling the pump ( if I remember right there is an access under the seat) to see if there is a visible defect in one of the components.

Airjer may have you on track, doing a few quick checks, it looks like this is one of those that had the recall done under the rear seat for the fuel pump, it adds a bulk of wires in a tight spot, and when people sit in the back seat the wires get pinched and rub.

Although if that isnt it, I would pull the fuel pump out and take a good look at the rubber hoses on it. Electrical wiring shouldnt change with less then a half tank, it should act up even with a full tank. I am still thinking it is going to be something inside the tank on the pump, or the pump itself! You can access it from under the rear seat!

    • Lets try it like this.
    • Yah - great looking decoys! MJ - I'm just letting you know I'm breaking into your house and stealing your spear rack.  And mount. I found a rickety old 5 tine when I cleaned out the garage.  I might give it a try this season.
    • I can't identify any of those for sure, and certainly wouldn't recommend eating any of them.  The first pic might be some older honey mushrooms, but it's pretty tough to tell.  I've got about 8 mushrooms that I can positively id.  Beyond that, it's just not worth being wrong.  There are still some fresh hen of the woods mushrooms around the metro if you get out into some oak woods.  You can find them around the base of big mature oaks and they are pretty easy to identify.  Found about 20 on Wednesday.  Many were a little old, but was able to take 4 nice ones home.  Here's a pic of one that I left behind.
    • I'm putting it on my calendar.  Don't forget the Nord Lord trophy since it has a new home to go to. 
    • Detroit News breaks 143 year tradition, endorses Gary Johnson.   The endorsement is the first time in the paper’s 143-year history it has endorsed someone other than the Republican Party’s nominee. http://www.breitbart.com/news/detroit-news-breaks-tradition-endorses-libertarian-gary-johnson/  
    • Kind of like Trump did Monday night.
    • Gets on a bunch of talk shows. Jumps another 5 points in the polls.. This just ain't working the way it's supposed to...
    • Looks like it's unanimous then. Good thing my vote goes to Hillary since it seems everyone thinks she is the best person for the job.
    • In your situation I'd try to be standing around the time you expect the deer to show up since it sounds like your upper body will have branch cover but not lose drawing ability. I usually set up off to the side and a little behind the tree from the direction I expect the deer to come from.  That way I get the full benefit of the cover of the tree I'm in. I stand a lot though; I rarely sit.  My ears tell me quite a bit but I'm usually looking around that tree all the time and my body is close to it.  I seem to be able to get away with quite a bit of movement and am rarely at 15 feet or higher.
