This is now the second time I've lost all power while driving. The car completely shuts down, steering becomes uncontrollable and the oil pressure light comes on. Car is at the dealership as I type and I'm being told the car has no codes of what happened. I'm not sure how a computer doesn't register a low oil pressure light or how it's not hard coded somewhere in the computer system that the car just cut out at 5mph. The first time I was okay as no one was in from of me. This time I almost wiped out 2 cars in a parking structure while on a down hill ramp.

In view of all the cars being recalled for failure of what would appear to be relatively simple devices, it occurs to me that I should report this incident, in case there have been other reports of the same problem. While driving in light traffic on a four-lane divided city street in atlanta, ga, on 3/17/13, a Sunday afternoon, without warning of any kind, the engine suddenly stopped. Of course, I had no power or power steering, but fortunately I was able to get the car over to the shoulder safely (fortunately there was a shoulder). The Ford emergency road service sent a tow truck, which towed the car to the nearest Ford dealer. The next day the dealer's service dept. Found that the fuel sender had become detached from the fuel pump. Of course, without fuel, the engine stopped. They re-attached the sender, and I have had no further problem. Everything was handled promptly and properly by Ford. There was no charge, of course, as the vehicle was still under warranty. However, had this failure occurred just five minutes earlier, I was in the inside lane of a busy interstate highway (I-285) going 70 mph. I can't imagine how I would have been able to navigate the car to safety across four lanes of traffic with no power - or else stop in the inside lane I was in and pray I didn't get hit before the tow truck came. A simple solution to a potentially deadly problem. I doubt that any routine testing or maintenance would have revealed this potential detachment. It would appear that there is a potential flaw in the way these vitally important parts are attached. It seems to me that this potential bears investigation by the fhtsa.
