ON A TRIP, SEPTEMBER 20TH GOING TO THE SMOKY MOUNTAINS, OUR 2013 FORD F-150 PICKUP TRUCK SUDDENLY LOST POWER. WE WERE ON MILE MARKER 295 EASTBOUND ON INTERSTATE 40, IN THE LEFT SIDE PASSING LANE GOING ABOUT 55 MPH UP A HILL. THE ENGINE STOPPED WITH NO WARNING. THE DASH SCREEN FLASHED A PICTURE OF A WRENCH AND THEN SAID "LOW OIL PRESSURE." THE OIL PRESSURE GAUGE SHOWED NO PRESSURE. I THOUGHT THE ENGINE HAD BLOWN. AS I TRIED TO NAVIGATE TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD, WHILE ON A HILL, MANY SEMI-TRUCKS SLAMMED ON THEIR BRAKES TRYING TO AVOID MY TRUCK PULLING A 5TH WHEEL TRAILER. WE MIRACULOUSLY AVOIDED A POSSIBLE MAJOR ACCIDENT. ULTIMATELY WE LEARNED IT WAS A SMALL $0.50, NUMBER 27, 20 AMP FUSE TO THE FUEL PUMP THAT CAUSED THE ENGINE TO STOP. WE WERE STUCK ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD FOR 2 HOURS UNTIL WE COULD GET A TOW TRUCK FOR BOTH OUR TRUCK AND 5TH WHEEL. FORD IS AWARE OF FUSE 27 (FOR FUEL PUMP) FREQUENTLY MELTING. THEY EVEN HAVE A RELOCATION KIT TO MOVE THE FUSE WHEN IT MELTS DUE TO OVERHEATING BECAUSE OF ITS LOCATION. IN OUR CASE THIS NEARLY CAUSED AN ACCIDENT INVOLVING SEMI TRUCKS.
