I was driving and the car shut off, but it restarted and ran for about a week and then it shut off and is now in shop. For the past 7 days. with all these recalls. I only have 95k
The only current recalls are for ABS and airbags, and the most recent is from December, 2019. 2009 Ford Fusion Recalls | Cars.com So surely your present problem is something else. I’m not a mechanic but I do know these things sometimes take a while to diagnose. Have you heard from the shop at all? Our regular guy would have at least called by now.
You have had two recalls, how does equate to “all these recalls”?
You have a twelve year old car, old cars require repairs.
Complete engine shut-offs are usually one of these
- no fuel (fuel pump failure, etc)
- no spark (ignition system failure)
- computer has detected something that could be unsafe or damage the car if allowed to keep running.
Years ago I had a VW Rabbit that would abruptly stop running while I was driving on the freeway. Turned out there were two separate causes. The first was a failing fuel pump relay; the second was a tiny crack in the ignition coil. On modern cars this sort of problem is usually diagnosed by first reading out all the computer’s diagnostic codes.
