are you taking it to a ford dealer? if not, take it to one because they can hook up ids and monitor the blend door actuators to verify they are operating correctly. sounds like their not. have replaced a lot on those trucks.

if not already done, try putting a new battery in the remote. if that doesn't work, could be a fuse blown or the vehicle security module.

sounds like you are getting gas into the evap system, which is sending the fuel straight into the intake. probably canister purge valve sticking. need to get it to a shop for inspection.

if this is the hose to the pcv valve, it will cause it to stall if it is a large enough leak. replace the hose and see if that fixes it.

Car Review: 2009 Hyundai Accent
August 01, 2013, 08:03 PM
Bought this car new. Was driving 150 miles a day back and forth to work. Needed a cheap car that had a long warranty as I was racking up miles on car I was driving pretty quick. Did normal maintenance up to 35k miles. Took to dealer with a/c problem. Compressor bad, headlights peeling chrome inside, trans slip in 3rd gear. Repaired all but the trans. Was told to drive it till trans went out and get it replaced. 55k now and still slips. Other than that, been a good car. Averages 35mpg on highway.

Bought this Eddie Bauer Expedition in June. Had 78k miles on it. Was a trade in with a bad engine knock. Pulled oil pan, #8 rod bearing bad, crankshaft ok. Put it together, have put about 3k miles on it since repair. Drives good. Has 4x4 and air suspension. Not great on gas milage but try not to drive a lot. Great to pull with. Looking for third row seat as it was gone.
