WHILE ATTEMPTING TO PASS A SLOWER VEHICLE ON A TWO LANE ROAD, MY TRUCK LOST ALL POWER AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT BEGAN BLINKING. I WAS IN THE ON-COMING TRAVEL LANE ADJACENT TO THE VEHICLE I WAS PASSING WHEN THE INCIDENT OCCURRED. THE INCIDENT NEARLY CAUSED AN ACCIDENT AS THE VEHICLE I WAS PASSING SLOWED DOWN WHEN I LOST POWER AN I WAS UNABLE TO IMMEDIATELY GET OVER. I COASTED WITH A ROUGH RUNNING ENGINE TO THE SHOULDER AND SHUT OFF THE ENGINE. WHEN I RESTARTED IT A FEW MINUTES LATER IT RAN A LITTLE ROUGH AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT REMAINED ON. RESEARCH SHOWS THAT THIS IS A KNOW ISSUE FOR THIS MAKE MODEL WITH THE ECOBOOST ENGINE. THE FORD DEALERSHIP, WHILE HAVING A TSB IN PLACE FOR THE ISSUE, DID NOT NOTIFY ME OF THE ISSUE AND WILL NOT COVER THE COST OF THE RECOMMENDED SERVICE UNDER EITHER THE POWER-TRAIN WARRANTY OR MY FORD EXTENDED WARRANTY (BUMPER-TO-BUMPER HAS EXPIRED). THIS IS A HUGE SAFETY ISSUE AND THIS SHOULD BE A RECALL FROM FORD TO FIX THESE ISSUES AND THEY APPARENTLY WILL NOT TAKE THE INITIATIVE TO DO SO ON THEIR OWN. THE INCIDENT OCCURRED IN SOUTHWESTERN MISSOURI ON A DAY IN WHICH IT HAD BEEN RAINING OFF AND ON.
