Hope he cleaned it before putting the new pump cause it will happen again. Also did you check where you take your gas? they are probably the cause?
Yeah he said he emptied the gas, dropped the tank and cleaned it then installed the new pump.

what do you mean where I take my gas? Where I buy from?

Honestly, I use shell a lot. If I can't find shell I use whatever is there bp, Exxon, etc.

I did use Sunoco once and it made a lot of difference as far as driving. Much better than the rest. Maybe I should stick with that I dunno anymore...

The only 93 available around here is from Shell and Sunoco. There's one particular Sunoco I go to regularly for both cars. Otherwise I'd have to sip on 91 like a peasant :crackup:

My brother in law told me not to use shell anymore. He takes his bmw and other cars to Sunoco a lot, and not to wait until it's almost empty. Mechanic told me to fill up at 1/4 tank.

I fill at half unless on a long distance drive.

my wife thinks you drive it until the light comes on!!
a QX56 must have a great fuel pump because she has almost 280K miles on it
I used to do that with my gti which had 180k miles and do it with my other car which is a Honda Accord with 239k miles. Never had a fuel pump problem. I guess Mustangs are different.

High pressure setups are usually less tolerant of that kind of stuff. The Mustang has a complex fuel tank setup as well. Two saddle tanks with a transfer tube.

your car is 'old' and you have no idea how the owners behaved or where they got their gas. Now you're all set.
Yeah u told me that before but still a 16 with 40k miles. I didn't have a problem with my old 16 gt buying gas from diff locations and driving it wild. But then again that had 1k miles when I bought it.

Did some suspension work, ordered the parts a month ago . Weather was just right, it was a good day in the garage.

Worth the time, money, effort spent. Suppression is more positive, car rolls easier. The car is a PP2 was pretty good as it was, now crisper .
