engine stalling

Replacing the Fuel Injection Pressure Sensor cured one of two stalling problems experienced with this 2.0L early-production 2013 MKZ. The stalling would occur after the car had been driven 15 minutes or more in temperatures above 50 degrees Fahrenheit, then parked for more than 20 minutes but less than an hour. It would start and run without incident, then stall within two minutes of being started. It could be re-started without any problem, and the stalling would not recur unless the car was shut off and left to sit for 15-60 minutes again.

This stalling was not related to refueling - that was a separate issue requiring replacement of a different sensor. The stalling never occurred when the car was driven after sitting for more than several hours; it was only when it was re-started soon after it had been fully warmed up that it occurred (as when running errands).
