2015 Ford Fiesta Owner Comments

problem #4

After filling the fuel tank, the engine has a tendency to stumble and stall when idling (such as when the clutch pedal is depressed). On one occasion, several minutes after filling the tank, I entered the roadway in stop-and-go traffic. The engine stalled while I was in the roadway moving at low speed.

The contact owns a 2015 Ford Fiesta. While driving 65 mph, the turbocharger engaged and the engine lost power. The vehicle did not stall. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 60,000.

Lost all throttle/power trying to accelerate onto highway from dead stop. Coasted to the shoulder while the car idled. Restart the car and problem goes away temporarily. Check engine light/code says throttle body actuator control system stuck closed (P2112).

This problem initially surfaced with less than 2500 miles on the vehicle. Immediately after refueling my vehicle, the engine would stumble and sometimes stall completely, while at a stop and with the engine idling. The Ford dealership determined the problem to be a faulty evaporation canister purge valve in the fuel system. The amount of fuel I added to the tank did not seem to matter as each time I did so, the engine would stumble or stall within 1-2 minutes following the fill-up. Once the stumbling or stall had occurred, the vehicle returned to normal operation without issue (or upon restarting the vehicle) until the next time I would need to add fuel. The stumbling and stalling was particularly dangerous as it tended to occur as I was pulling away from the gas station, merging into traffic at a busy intersection or on-ramp.
