Truck wont Start !
So, the last 3 times I filled my tank (was on a road trip) the engine would not start immed after filling it with gas. Once was 1/2 tank before filling, once was 1/4 and once the fuel light was flashing. All 3 times exact same symptoms.
I place foot on brake and turn key in ignition, starter turns over but truck wont start. I turned it off and waited. Still wouldnt start. So first time I hammered on the gas as turning key, started for about 10 secs then stalled (flooded ). Next 2 times I gently feathered the gas while turning ignition and it caught. I then sat there revving gas for about 20-30 seconds and then worked fine again.... until next fill up.
Each time I made multiple smaller trips around the towns I was in, stopping to visit ppl, and go for supper, drive to golf course, etc and no problems. It is ONLY when filling with gas.
I was at 3 different gas starions (Shell, Costco, Esso) in 3 separate towns all about 500-700 km apart.
Truck : 5.4L 2010 F150. 46,000km No engine mods. No chip.
I'm leaning towards the fuel pump, but any other suggestions about whats going on ? Its going into the dealer tomorrow morning. Thankfully, I have extended warranty !
