Complaint - Power Train

MY VEHICLE IS A 2008 FORD F-150 SUPERCREW. THIS HAS AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. AFTER ABOUT 1000 MILES I NOTICED THAT THE ENGINE APPEARED TO STALL WHEN ACCELERATING UPHIILL (CHANGING GEARS) AND THAT THE RPM'S WOULD REV DURING CITY DRIVING. THE PROBLEM IS INTERMITTENT AND I HAD TO GO TO THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT SEVERAL TIMES TO ATTEMPT TO PROVE THE ISSUE EXIST. AFTER IT WAS DISCOVERED THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT TORE DOWN THE TRANSMISSION AND REPLACED PARTS AND THIS DID NOT RESOLVE IT. A MONTH LATER FORD ACKNOWLEDGED THE ISSUE EXISTED AND AS DEALERS TO HOLD OFF ON REPAIR ATTEMPTS UNTIL ENGINEERING DID MRE RESEARCH. I HAVE A COPY OF THIS FROM THE OASIS ON MY VEHICLE. A MONTH LATER THE ATTEMPTED A DOWNLOAD OF INFORMATION TO UNIT. THIS IMPROVED THE PERFORMANCE OF THE VEHICLE. AFTER ABOUT 5 MONTHS THE ISSUES SLOWLY STARTED TO SHOW THEMSELVES AGAIN. I HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH SEVERAL PEOPLE TO GET THIS RESOLVED. EACH TIME I HAVE GONE TO THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR CODES AND THE PROBLEM IS NOT PRODUCING ANY CODES. I AM ONCE AGAIN AT THIS TIME TAKING MY VEHICLE IN REPEATEDLY AND HOPING THAT ON THAT DAY SOMEONE WILL EXPERIENCE THE SAME THINGS WHICH I AM SPEAKING OF, JUST LIKE THEY DID IN THE BEGINNING OF THIS PROBLEM.
