Nevermind. I looked and see that you've got a GT. LOL

They'll more than likely have answers for you very soon.

Well, finally got my car back after being towed to the dealer. It was the fuel pump, replaced that and the A and B senders. They also did another recall, the ?fast static gear shift logic?. Everything is fine for now.

What year is your Stinger?

Two senders, interesting.

Does it have two fuel tanks like Corvettes and Zs?

I hope this is an isolated incident, kinda scary if you get stranded in the middle of nowhere.

Not that I am aware of, does that mean two filler nozzles and an interior switch?

Hahahaha

It's got two pumps. One on the tank (25+/- psi) and one in the engine bay (3,000+/- psi).

Having a blowout or hitting a deer is 100 times more likely if you're in the middle of no where. LOL

Corvette starting in C5 and Z starting in Z33 have two fuel tanks, saddle-like style, due to their chassis construction. They have two senders, but one pump. Fuel transfers between the two tanks automatically without a pump. It also prevents fuel starvation at low level. I didn't think the CK would have/need such a contraption due to its chassis. Wonder why two senders were needed.

Hello, I am back again. Driving to work this morning and I stopped behind a school bus. My 2018 Stinger shook and stopped and would not restart! I know it wasn't fuel because I just filled it up the night before. I was able to get her started enough while sputtering and choking to get her off the road. After about 10 minutes of trying to restart it I just her I let her sit for a few more minutes. Then she started right up. I immediately took her home and called Kia. I'm waiting for one of their wonderful technicians to call me back so I can bring her in.
No idea what the problem was but I did smell a lot of exhaust. Pretty much all of the lights were lit on the dashboard including the engine light.
I will post an update.

So they've had my car since Thursday and they haven't even touched it yet!! Since the car has left me stranded on multiple occasions and the service department is less than stellar, I think I need to sell my baby.
