Ok on my way to work this morning my check engine light popped on and I couldn't accelerate. Could this be my fuel pump went out? Haven't had a chance to check the code yet cuz I'm at work. It made no noise when the light came on. Nothing unusual except I couldn't accelerate.

More likely anything except the fuel pump. The PCM can't monitor anything mechanical. Too many other possibilities to guess; you'll have to obtain the code(s).

Definitely need the code.
If there was no reaction at all, I would say the throttle pedal.
Or if it acted a little funny, maybe the ICP sensor.

But those are just guesses. Not worth much. Lol

I agree with the others, you must pull the code to know for sure. But it is for sure not throwing a light that is related to the fuel pump. The computer does not monitor the pump or fuel pressure.

If you couldn't accelerate, I would guess something to do with the trans, or the accelerator pedal. The code will tell you for sure though.

Sorry it's taken so long to reply. So after work I stopped at my truck. I tried to start it and it started up not a problem and the check engine light wasn't on any more. It sat for only 10 hours. I had to take my dads truck to him and have someone take me back to mine. Drove home not a problem. When I got home I plugged in my actron obd 2 scanner and it said no codes. I tried it a couple times and every time it told me no codes. I haven't had any problems since then either. Could this have been caused from my fuel leak? I have I hose to replace and I just ordered a fuel bowl reseal kit. I was thinking that since I have to fix that stuff that I should do my fuel pump also. Would that be a good idea or is it not necessary?

You need a Ford enhanced scanner. Going to need a good shop or the dealer to check them. Re read your original post. Check your oil level and age. I've had very low oil levels cause this as well as oil with waaayyyy too many miles on it do this.

You don't need a shop; there are a number of ways to scan the truck yourself. Still, a generic OBD-II scanner won't do it. If the CE light was on, and the batteries haven't been disconnected, the code is probably still stored.

Ok thanks I'll have to go plug it into my grandpas scanner that is way better then mine and can read ford. I have oil but it does need changed. Was planning on changing that today along with changing my tranny pan filter and seal.
