MERGING ONTO INTERSTATE AT 50 MPH I ACCELERATED HARD TO MERGE INTO TRAFFIC. COMPLETE LOSS OF ACCELERATION NEARLY CAUSING AN ACCIDENT WITH A TRACTOR TRAILER BEHIND US. VIOLENT SHUDDERING OF ENTIRE VEHICLE, CHECK ENGINE LIGHT FLASHED AND THEN REMAINED ON. AFTER NEARLY A MINUTE OF FEATHERING THE ACCELERATOR, THE PROBLEM SUBSIDED AND ABILITY TO ACCELERATE WAS REGAINED. THIS HAD ALREADY HAPPENED ONCE ON THE SAME DRIVE AND A COUPLE IF TIMES PRIOR TO THIS INCIDENT. I DROPPED THE TRUCK OFF AT THE DEALER THIS AM AFTER DRIVING IT FOR TWO DAYS WITH THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON. THEY SAID THEY WOULD CALL WITH AN UPDATE IN THE AFTERNOON, BUT WHEN 7PM ROLLED AROUND AND I HAD NOT YET HEARD FROM THEM I CALLED TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON AND WAS TOLD THAT THEY WERE WAITING FOR A REPLACEMENT INTERCOOLER AND TO CALL BACK IN THE MORNING AND SPEAK WITH THE SERVICE ADVISOR. SEEMS LIKE A VERY COMMON - NOT TO MENTION DANGEROUS - PROBLEM FOR FORD NOT TO BE PUBLICLY DEALING WITH IT, OR AT LEAST BEING MORE PROACTIVE ABOUT ISSUING A RECALL FOR. HOPEFULLY NO ONE GETS HURT BEFORE THE PROBLEM IS ACKNOWLEDGED & FIXED.
