I Was Driving A ford Diesel Van North On Highway 31 Towards Pennington, Nj, When The Truck Started Acting Up. Ultimately, It Stalled – Right There On The Highway; 4 Lanes, Semi Trucks Coming Around A Bend @ 40 + Mph, And No Shoulder. I Told My Helper To Leave The Truck Because I Was Sure We Were Going To Get Hit. No Way A Tractor Trailer, At Those Speeds, Could Stop In Time. Several Semi’s Had To Cut Off Cars In The Left Lane To Avoid Us. I Thought For Sure I Was Dead. After Sweating It Out, I Finally Got The Truck Started And Got To A Side Street, At About 5 Mph. That’s When I Called Aaa & Got The Truck Towed To My ford Dealer, Where They Want $2500 To Repair What They Call ” fuel Tank Delamination”. I Never Heard Of Such A Thing And Neither Did Anyone I Spoke With In The Auto Repair Industry So I Googled It: ford Diesel fuel Tank Problems, And As It Turns Out, There Are Thousands Of Vehicles Out There With The Exact Same Problem. I”m Surprised No One Has Died Yet, But I Guess That’s What It Will Take, Maybe When A Couple Of Kids Die, ford Will Do Something About It, If It Doesn’t Cost Too Much – Of Course. To Alleviate This “problem,” The ford Dealer Is, In Effect, Going To Replace The Entire fuel Delivery System, At The Consumers Cost. New fuel Tank, New fuel Transfer Pump, Clean Out The fuel Lines, Replace fuel Filter, Clean Injectors, So, Bend Over. Ps Really Hope Nobody Has To Die – But That’s Your Call. *tr

My fuel Tank Interior Flaked So Severely It Caused The Engine To Buck Violently And Dramatically Loose Power. This Was Caused By The Almost Complete Blockage Of The fuel Tank Pickup Screen/filter. Since That Time I Have Had To Disassemble And Thoroughly Clean The fuel Pickup Of The Flakes 4 Times Including Today. Each Time The Pickup Was Packed With Silver Flakes From The Deteriorating Lining Of The fuel Tank. The Problem Occurred Each Time While Trailering My Rv Down The Interstate. It Is Extremely Scary And The Almost Complete Loss Of Power Makes It Very Difficult To Get To The Next Exit. The Problem Is So Persistent That I Have Put A Door In The Floor Of My Van So That I No Longer Have To Drop The Tank For Access. I Purchased This ford e-350 Diesel New In 2000. *tr
