AFTER DRIVING IN RAINING CONDITIONS FOR MORE THAN FOUR HOURS, I ATTEMPTED TO PASS ANOTHER VEHICLE. WHEN I ACCELERATED, MY VEHICLE BEGAN TO LOSE POWER AND SHAKE VIOLENTLY. BECAUSE OF THIS, I NEARLY CAUSE A MULTIPLE CAR ACCIDENT DO TO MY INABILITY TO CONTROL MY TRUCKS RAPIDLY REDUCING SPEED. THE SAME ISSUE OR TYPE OF ISSUE OCCURRED IN LATE AUGUST OF 2013 WHILE ATTEMPTING TO MERGE INTO TRAFFIC. UPON ACCELERATION ATTEMPT, THE ENGINE REDUCED POWER, FAILED TO RESPOND AND THE VEHICLE SHOOK VIOLENTLY. A FORD DEALERSHIP COMPLETED TSB-13-8-1, HOWEVER, IT WAS RELUCTANTLY DONE AS NO CODE WOULD VERIFY A PROBLEM. THE TRUCK IS CURRENTLY AT ANOTHER DEALERSHIP, WHO ONCE I EXPLAINED THE PROBLEM I WAS HAVING, TOLD ME THAT I NEEDED TO HAVE TSB-13-8-1 PERFORMED. I MENTIONED IT HAD BEEN PERFORMED AND WAS TOLD THAT UNLESS A CODE COULD VERIFY A PROBLEM, NOTHING COULD BE DONE. THIS IS A WELL DOCUMENTED PROBLEM, WITH MANY OCCURRENCES. THIS VEHICLE IS GOING TO GET SOMEONE KILLED IF SOMEONE DOESN'T CORRECT THE ISSUE. IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT CAN BE "CREATED" BY A MECHANIC TO, IT ONLY HAPPENS IN REAL-LIFE SITUATIONS. IS THERE SOMETHING SOMEONE CAN DO TO MAKE FORD RESEARCH, IDENTIFY AND CORRECT THIS ISSUE BEFORE EVEN ONE DEATH?
