I Was In Traffic And Crossing An Intersection When My Vehicle Lost All Power And Stalled. After A Few Minutes Of Sitting The Vehicle Ran Fine. Later In Traffic It Did It Again And An Accident Almost Occurred. I Had The Vehicle Checked By Pro Automotive Services And Found The Inside Of The fuel Tank Lining Is Flaking Off Blocking The fuel Lines And Stalling The Vehicle Out. This Is A Very Dangerous And Unheard Of Problem. The Vehicle Is 5 Years Old And The fuel Tank Inside Is Flaking Badly. You Never Know When The Vehicle Is Going To Stall Or Fail In Traffic. There Where No Failure Codes Displayed Or Check Engine Light Coming On. *tr

When Driving My Truck Last Week It Started Slowing Down And Violently Shaking. It Would Not Drive Faster Than 30mph On 95. We Found That The fuel System Was Clogged. We Then Removed The fuel Tank And Found What Looked To Be Silver Paint Chips In The Bottom Of The Tank. It Appears As Though The Lining Of The Tank Is Delaminating. This Has Clogged The Entire fuel System. I Am In The Process Of Replacing The Tank But I Don’t Know If The New Tank Will Have The Same Problem. I Have Read Many Other Accounts Of This Problem Online And The Repairs To This Point Will Cost Me About 1000 Dollars. *tr
