I have owned my 15 mkc since new... it has about 65k on it …. when I woulds
be parked at the airport waiting for a customer for lyft after a few weeks the truck would start engine shaking really rough and then die .. I would get it started eventually but from then on whenever I am parked idling the motor ends up dying … now it will do it while driving! had truck at dealer they couldn't figure it out .. guess it didn't die for them while there.. they wanted to hook up some module so next time it dies it would record the incident and figure out why its dying … so put my life at risk! im not sure if the fuel pump recall has been done but I think it might have I I will check on that … what can be causing this ?????

Also if my gas tank is more towards full it won’t do this stalling problem but amount of gas shouldn’t matter

just spoke with service rep at a Lincoln Dealer he told me my truck never had a recall for the fuel pump?! said older ford escapes and mariners did but not my model truck …. so now that is out out of the picture what should I do ? he said im covered 5yr or 70k powertrain which might still cover the issue when found .. 175.00 diagnosis fee put towards repair if fixed there ?
am I the only person who has this issue ????????

on another forum a member wrote this what do you guys thin? Hope somebody responds didn't think no one would??

I've been reading a lot about the 2.0 L EcoBoost that's in your car. It's a GDI (gasoline direct injection) engine and, given the mileage you said you've logged (65K), you might be having problems with sludge and coking on the intake valves along with some issues with the intake manifold - not to mention the turbocharger. Higher mileage GDI engines are having these problems - carbon buildup/coking on the intake valves and pistons, sludge, cold start detonation problems, reduced power as time marches on. You should have your mechanic check for these problems - I'll bet that might be what's going on.

I'm looking for a Catch Can unit for my 2.3L Ecoboost which will evacuate the oil and moisture that's created by the "blow by" before it's pumped back into the turbocharger and intake manifold. I'm also going to go back to changing the oil every 3 months/3K and using only a high quality synthetic at each oil change.

I don't know what to tell you but I don't think it is intake port issues. I have had that issue with the 10 flex eb and it doesn't act like what you describe .

Ford sometimes has fuel pump module failures, but that is a shot in the dark. There would need to be a lot more information needed that can not be diagnosed on the forum and without a scope and scan tool

Do you have a check engine light. to me if it's running rough at idle or dies it could be a mass air sensor but that would give you a check engine light you can go to AutoZone/ O'Reilly's and download the codes and see what it says from there that's free and easy.

I hope by now that your MKC is fixed! If not, I want to share my experience with you. My experience was very similar, but my vehicle died on my way home from the dealer. It died several time a week and they could not get a code. I drove it with a recorder and I pushed the button when it died. They had by vehicle up on a rack and the transmission mechanic figured it out. The evap hose coming from the gas tank was pinched! This caused the gas tank to pressurize which made the engine run rich. The computer saw that it was running rich and it shut down the injectors--thus killing the engine. They replaced 8 inches of tubing and it never died again. My vehicle was a Ford E-350 Super Cargo van, but I believe that the technology is the same on most vehicles. I would suggest this to the dealer or your mechanic. This doesn't happen often, but it happened to me. The dealer reported the problem to Ford and they sent a specialist to Houston to check it out. He could not figure it out. The transmission mechanic told the specialist that you have to look at the whole vehicle to see if you can find something that doesn't look right. My thanks to Terry Tremmel who was the mechanic. He now owns his own transmission shop on Old Greenhouse Road in West Harris County, Texas. He may have saved my life as this situation is extremely dangerous.
Good Luck,
Murray Davis
