DubbsFaris Posted March 3, 2011 Report Share Posted March 3, 2011 So as soon as I got back from the bash, I noticed my gas tank would shut the pump off like it was full everytime I tried to fill it. It would take me 20 minutes+ to get my tank most of the way full and it was also throwing a couple codes at me. P0456 and P0442 (I think) So Jordan Ford has had my car for coming up on three weeks. Ford had them replace my fuel pump first, then the whole fuel tank. No luck. Then, today, Ford happened to have a couple of their mustang engineers down at the dealership on an unrelated visit, but showed them the car and asked for their help. Well, they found it- it seems the exhaust got so hot on the track it melted the vent tube, so it will now be replaced and they told me the heatshielding was not enough to keep this from happening. Now if you are only doing regular street driving, this will never happen, but under track use, your exhaust gets really hot! For more questions on this, please contact SA, as they are aware of what happened, and will make sure this issue doesnt happen again. This may be an isolated incident, but I thought I would share what happened just in case it does come up. Its no big deal, once we found the real culprit, and Ford is covering it under warranty in my case, so be aware of the symptoms and cause. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
