well I bought my car used and did my mods myself and it had a hesitation problem befor I started modding, just as I take off at full throttle it boggs out for about 1 - 1.5 seconds and then goes, just wondering if anybody has experienced this because I am going to take it to ford but I would like to know what the flavor of the kool-aid is before I jump in it if you know what I mean [8D]

bogs from the start...r from a stop, from what u say sounds like the usual fuel pump/sending unit combo

Yea, it happens at a stop and sometimes when im accelerating from a roll of about 5 - 10 mph,
and on some occasions when it's sat all night long and I go to start it it has the most irrattic idle I have ever heard, It almost wants to die.

well i don't know how bad of a bog it is, hesitation and bogging is a big difference, could be as simple as a dpfe

of course this problem happened before my mods and continues after..... so the intake would have nothing to do with it....

oh yeah zarelli, on the fuel pump, to get it fixed the dealership told me it would cost 200, because of the filter, and flushing of the system, so much for it being fixed free!

I had the same problem and got the letter about the recall. In the mean time, keep your tank at least half full and the problem won't be so pronounced.
