problem #2

Dec 262011

Mustang 6-cyl

  • 41,300 miles


Driving on highway engine light came on then fuel gauge went to 0 and speedometer down to 10 miles per hour and gauge flickered back up to 35..almost causing an accident not knowing what was happening. Past 6 months when fueling my car gas pump keeps kicking off, not sure if it could cause a fire, takes 15 minutes to fuel up. I will never buy a Ford again.
