THIS WRITE UP IS FOR A 2012 FORD F-150 TRUCK WITH THE 3.5L ECOBOOST V-6 INSTALLED. JAN, 2013-WHILE DRIVING ON I-24E, I WAS PULLING OUT FROM THE REST STOP, JUST NORTH WEST OF EXIT 1. I WENT TO PASS A 18 WHEELER AND MY TRUCK CAME "UNGLUED". IT PRACTICALLY DIED IN THE PASSING LANE WHEN I PRESSED THE GAS PEDDLE. IT SHUDDERED SO HARD; I DIDN'T THINK I WOULD BE ABLE TO GET OFF OF THE ROAD BEFORE IT DIED. IT WAS MISSING AND SHUDDERING LIKE CRAZY. I PULLED OFF EXIT 1, SHUT THE TRUCK DOWN AND RESTARTED. IT RAN OK WITHOUT THAT SAME THING HAPPENING ON THE WAY HOME. I HAD A PRETTY DESCENT "MISS" IN 6TH GEAR, RUNNING DOWN THE INTERSTATE AT 75MPH. SOMETHING VERY STRANGE HAPPENED HERE. IT WAS THE FIRST ISSUE I'VE HAD WITH MY TRUCK. ALTHOUGH I'VE NOTICED RECENTLY THE MPG IS DOWN BY 2.0 MPG OR MORE FOR THE LAST THREE WEEKS, AND THIS FROM REFUELING AT DIFFERENT LOCATIONS, AND THE SAME DRIVING STYLE. FORD APPLIED THE TSB TO REPROGRAM THE PCM/TCM TO LATEST LEVEL, INSTALLED A DEFLECTOR SHIELD ON THE INTERCOOLER AND POSSIBLY REPLACE THE DRIVERS SIDE CATALYTIC CONVERTER IF NEEDED. JULY, 2013- THIS WEEKEND WHILE DRIVING ON I-65N, I HAD THE SAME ISSUE HAPPEN. THE TRUCK NOW HAS 17,000 MILES ON IT. I'VE HAD THE VEHICLE BACK INTO MY LOCAL FORD DEALER FOUR TIMES FOR THIS ISSUE. THE VEHICLE EXHIBITS THIS ISSUE WHEN IT'S RAINY AND HAS BEEN DRIVEN IN THE RAIN FOR SEVERAL (50 OR MORE) MILES. IN HEAVY TRAFFIC THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS ISSUE. THE VEHICLE GOES INTO SOME TYPE OF SAFE MODE AND WILL BARELY LIMP OFF THE ROAD. IF THIS ISSUE WERE TO OCCUR WHILE CROSSING A FOUR LANE HWY, AND SPUTTERED ONE COULD BE SERIOUSLY INJURED OR INJURE SOMEONE ELSE.
