Without being able to see or to test your motor we can only guess or suggest.

Most likely it is fuel related. If it is 7 years old but with low hours, often stale fuel gums up small passages or phase separated E-10 gasoline corrodes components. Fuel pumps often work intermittently if corroded.

There may be a software update to your engine also. Talk to yor dealer.

There are test procedures for the EMM that your dealer can perform.

Re: 2011 e Tec 15 ho

It is very common for a tech to check fuel quality and then run the engine to check fuel pressure and get a good reading. It is rare on an engine that gets used a lot, but those fuel pumps can run and test good for 20 minutes, then shut down. A few hours later they will work again for 20 minutes. I misdiagnosed the first one I came across, now I test run all of them with the fuel pressure gauge attached for 25 minutes.
