DRIVING TURNPIKE AT 1:30AM WITH WET ROADS BUT NOT RAINING. CRUISE CONTROL WAS ENGAGED AT 75 MPH. APPROACHING A BRIDGE AND UPON STARTING TO CLIMB ON THE INCLINE I HEARD A NOISE THAT SOUNDED LIKE THE TRANSMISSION HAD DISENGAGED THEN THE ENGINE LIGHT STARTED PULSATING ON AND OFF SO I TRIED TO ACCELERATE AND THE TRUCK DID NOT REACT BUT SINCE I WAS GOING 75 IT TOOK ME OVER THE BRIDGE AND THEN I COASTED DOWN THE BRIDGE WITH THE CRUISE CONTROL DISENGAGED. I PULLED OVER TO THE SIDE AND PLACED TRUCK IN PARK THE ENGINE WAS STILL ON. I TURNED OFF THE TRUCK AND WAITED ABOUT 1 MINUTE THEN I TURNED THE KEY BACK ON AND THE TRUCK STARTED UP WITH NO ENGINE LIGHT OR ANY SIGN OF PROBLEMS. I DROVE ALL THE WAY TO MIAMI WITH NO FURTHER INCIDENTS. I TOOK THE TRUCK TO FORD OF HOMESTEAD AND THEY SAID THEY COULD NOT PULL A CODE OUT OF THE COMPUTER THAT SHOWED ANYTHING HAD HAPPENED. I LATER TOOK THE TRUCK AGAIN THIS TIME MAKING NOISES WHEN U ACCELERATED IT SOUNDED LIKE THE TRANSMISSION WAS SHUDDERING AND AGAIN NOTHING THEY COULD DO TO REPLICATE IT. AGAIN ON OR AROUND MARCH 2013 I TOOK THE TRUCK TO ANOTHER FORD DEALER AND TRIED TO REPLICATE THE SHUDDERING BETWEEN 3 OR 4 TH GEAR TO NO AVAIL. THE TRUCK THIS PAST WEEKEND ON THE SAME BRIDGE AGAIN WITH WET ROADS MADE THE SHUDDERING SOUND AND FEELING BUT THE ENGINE LIGHT DID NOT COME ON AND THE TRUCK UPON GETTING TO THE TOP OF THE BRIDGE CONTINUED WITHOUT HAVING TO BE TURNED OFF AND ON. AT FIRST I THOUGHT THIS MIGHT BE A TRANSMISSION ISSUE BUT WHENEVER I GUESS THE TRUCK ACCELERATES TO GAIN SPEED TO GO OVER THE BRIDGE OR AFTER LEAVING A STOP OR RED LIGHT BETWEEN 3 OR 4 TH GEARS IT SHUDDERS AND WHEN THE BRIDGE COMES AROUND IT GOES TO A LOWER GEAR AND STARTS LOSING POWER. WHEN IT HAPPENS BETWEEN 3 OR 4TH GEARS IT IS WITH ME ACCELERATING. THEY TOLD ME THAT THE TRUCK HAS A MEMORY IF YOU DRIVE IT HARD OR SOFTLY IT REMEMBERS THIS AND SHIFTS DIFFERENTLY.
