RE: [DML] 2653 Stalled out on the highway this morning............

In my similar experience, contamination in the fuel tank clogged the
fuel pump screen.  Within about 30 minutes the check valve ha slowly
leaked back enough to relieve the suction holding all the debris to the
screen, and it floated away loose, so the car could run again.  DMCH
diagnosed the problem over the phone with me while I waited.  Sure
enough, the ca eventually started and ran, and when I cleaned out the
tank (again) there was considerable debris both in the filter screen,
and the tank.

I had pretty much the identical experience happen to me a few years ago
the NJ Turnpike.

I was able to pull off to the side, and a while later, the car started
and ran fine.

It turned out to be a bad/corroded connector on the ballast resistors
was flaking out.
