Fuel Tank Liner Problem?
First, I would suggest a folder for fuel related problems.
Now to my problem. Bought my 2000 F550 3 weeks ago with 95,000 miles on it. 3 times since then it has started sputtering, losing power and slowing down and 2 times even shut off (once was with no load). All 3 times after sitting for a few minutes I was able to start back up and run normally to get to a gas station (2 times registered 1/4 tank, last time registered 1/2 tank). All 3 times I filled tank and drove on normally. I read some complaints online about fuel tank liner failures. My mechanical experience had me thinking there was possible trash in the tank so am really thinking this might be my problem.
Has anyone had similar experiences and if so, what would I be looking at parts and cost-wise to remedy this problem? Thank you for your input and assistance.
