had. Ford had a recall on the fuel pump because it would stop providing
enough pressure when there was low fuel. The engine would lose power
when I rounded a corner fast or accelerated hard with less than a half
tank of gas. Also empty moved from true empty to about 2 gallons left.
You might want to see if there is a mechanic that can measure fuel
pressure during a drive that encounters that problem. Otherwise, I would
just replace the pump and see.
