Question fuel problems

i have a 07 ps and i park it on a slight hill every night. before i parked last night my fuel gauge read 1/4 tank. when i fired it up this morning it read low fuel, do to the incline of the hill. on my way to work this morning it would miss once in every gear at 1600 rpms. i fired it up at lunch today and i did the same thing on flat ground. i topped of my tank and it only took 26 gallons out of the full 38, so i wasnt on empty. i left the gas station and it stopped. What is the problem?

Check to see if you have any codes.

Don't confuse the issue with the fuel level in the tank, you obviously have fuel but is it getting to the injectors? Have you changes the fuel filters? Checked the oil level in the HPOP and the crank case? Make sure the fuel filter bowl on top has fuel flowing into it when you turn the key on. These are things that could cause pour fuel flow to the injectors.
Check that since there were no codes and maybe someone else will offer more advice here.

I thought you meant the motor stopped...as in died.
Sounds like a fluke to me...

Sounds as if a bit of contamination got thru .... possibly some moisture enought to make it run ragged but not enough to trip the WIF sensor. Who knows for sure. Since it straighted up, I wouldn't be too concerned unless it happend again.

FWIW: Actually, Ford designed that to happend to new vehicles so the owners would appreciate them even more when they run right. and I have a big orange bridge in Northern California for sale - cheap.
