JULY 6 LOST POWER TO TRUCK ENGINE AT 60 MPH WHEN GOING TO PASS IN HARD ACCELERATION SITUATION. TRUCK ENGINE SHUTTERED FOR OVER 3 MINS UNTIL I COULD GET IT STABILIZED AROUND 2000 RPMS IN A LOWER GEAR/SPEED. THIS WAS THE FIRST OF TWO SIMILAR SITUATION ON THE SAME DAY WITH THE TRUCK AND THROUGHOUT THE REMAINDER OF THE DAY ANY ACCELERATION OVER 3500 RPMS CAUSED A LOSS OF POWER. WE LIMPED THE VEHICLE HOME THAT DAY. NEXT DAY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON AND OFF UNTIL WE COULD GET TRUCK INTO OUR LOCAL FORD DEALER FOR SERVICE ON 7-13. THIS ISSUE HAS BEEN RESEARCHED VIA INFO ON THIS SITE TO NO CONCLUSION. I CAN SAY IF YOU DROVE THIS VEHICLE AND SIMULATED THIS ISSUE YOU WOULD SEE THE MAJOR ISSUE THIS CAUSES AND POTENTIAL RISK OF ACCIDENT AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS WITH ACCELERATION. SPECIFICALLY HEAVY TRAFFIC SITUATIONS. THE ISSUE CAUSED SPARK PLUG DAMAGE, CATALYTIC CONVERTER DAMAGE AND THE DEALER PERFORMED THE TSB (4TH ISSUED BY FORD) TO ATTEMPT TO FIX THE ISSUE. THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE, CAUSES SAFETY ISSUES AND SHOULD BE RECALLED TO PERMANENTLY FIX NOT TRY TO PATCH WITH FOUR DIFFERENT TSB. FIX THIS CORRECTLY BEFORE ACCIDENTS OCCUR THAT CAUSE DEATHS.
