I HAVE HAD NUMEROUS INSTANCES OF THE ENGINE OF MY F-150 ECO -BOOST SHUTTING DOWN WHILE DRIVING. THE ENGINE WILL RUN FINE FOR HOURS AND THEN IT WILL BEGIN TO SPUTTER AND CRAP OUT AND DIE. THE 1ST TIME THIS HAPPENED I WAS TRAVELING 65 MILES ON HOUR ON THE FREEWAY WHEN IT JUST STARTED CRAPPING OUT LIKE IT WAS OUT OF GAS. IT BARELY RAN UNTIL I COULD GET OFF THE FREEWAY. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO MY LOCAL FORD DEALER 5 TIMES FOR THE SAME ISSUE. I HAVE HAD IT STOP RUNNING ON AT LEAST 10 OCCASIONS. ONLY 1 TIME DID THE DEALER GET A CODE WHICH INDICATED THE HIGH PRESSURE FUEL PUMP WAS FAILING. REPLACED THAT. THREE DAYS LATER THE SAME THING HAPPENS AGAIN IN THE EXACT SAME WAY. IT WILL RUN FINE AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN IT DECIDES THAT IT WANTS TO CRAP OUT AND START SPUTTERING. I WAS TOLD BY THE DEALER WHEN THIS HAPPENS TURN THE ENGINE OFF, TAKE THE KEY OUT OF THE IGNITION, WAIT A FEW MINUTES THEN PUT THE KEY IN THE IGNITION AND TRY TO START. I HAVE HAD TO WAIT AS LONG AS A FEW MINUTES TO OVER AN HOUR FOR THE COMPUTER TO REBOOT AND ALLOW THE TRUCK TO RESTART. THIS HAS HAPPENED IN SOME VERY REMOTE LOCATIONS WHERE IT WOULD HAVE REQUIRED THAT I HIKE AS MUCH AS 20 MILES TO SEE A LIVING SOUL AGAIN TO FIND HELP. I BELIEVE THAT THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS SAFETY PROBLEM THAT WILL EVENTUALLY LEAD IN DEATHS IF A RECALL IS NOT PERFORMED TO FIND THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM. THERE ARE TO MANY COMPLAINTS ON THIS SITE TO IGNORE THAT IT IS NOT A PROBLEM ALTHOUGH FORD TOLD ME THEY DID NOT HAVE SIMILAR ISSUES WITH ANY OTHER TRUCKS. NOW I SEE ON THIS SITE THAT PERHAPS THEY ARE CHOOSING IGNORANCE OVER SAFETY.
