Would this happen immediately? Would it outright die or go weak? How can I find out more about this fuel pump phenomenon? IDK as we have an easy way to measure fuel pressure on Foci.
I had this happen a few years after I bought my 2001 SE DOHC Zetec in 2004, I was the second owner. It turned out that there was a layer of dust sludge in the bottom of the gas tank, it would cut out when I was pulling G's on a right hand turn, especially uphill. There is a filter inside the bottom of the gas tank, which my mechanic said was a pain to deal with.
