ECOBOOST, ALMOST 5 SERIOUS ACCIDENTS IN A YEAR. IN JAN, MY WIFE, 3 CHILDREN & I WERE ON I-85 IN HEAVY TRAFFIC WHEN MY TRUCK STALLED. WE WENT FROM 65 MPH TO 20 & NO POWER. AN 18 WHEELER WAS BARRELING DOWN ON US & HAD TO MAKE AN AGGRESSIVE MOVE WITH HIS BRAKES LOCKED TO MISS US & THE OTHER CARS. I PULLED THE CAR THROUGH 4 LANES OF 65 MPH TRAFFIC, DOING 15-20 MPH & TURNED THE TRUCK OFF TO GET IT RUNNING AGAIN. NEXT, I WAS STOPPED AT A LIGHT. WHEN THE LIGHT TURNED GREEN MY TRUCK STALLED OUT 3 TIMES BEFORE THE TRUCK WOULD FINALLY GO. OVER THE NEXT MONTH MY TRUCK STALLED AT LEAST 10 MORE TIMES. IN APRIL, FORD TOLD ME THAT THE ECOBOOST HAD A PROBLEM & THEY PERFORMED TSB 13-8-1, REPROGRAMED PCM & INSTALLED DEFLECTOR. I HAVEN+T NOTICE ANY POWER LOSS, BUT LOST 2 MPG FROM MY NORMAL DRIVING HABITS. IN JUNE, I MERGED INTO HEAVY TRAFFIC & MY TRUCK STALLED. 65 MPH TO IDLE ON A MAJOR HIGHWAY. I DON+T KNOW HOW I AVOIDED AN ACCIDENT. I PULLED OFF THE HIGHWAY & TURNED THE TRUCK OFF TO GET IT GOING. MY TRUCK STALLED 5 MORE TIMES BEFORE TAKING IT BACK TO FORD. IN AUGUST, MY TRUCK STALLED AT AN INTERSECTION 4 TIMES. I COMPLETELY BLOCKED TRAFFIC FOR ABOUT 10 MINS. I GOT ON THE HWY & WENT 8 MILES. MY TRUCK STALLED 14 TIMES+ VERY DANGEROUS. EVERY TIME I GOT THE TRUCK UP TO SPEED, IT WOULD STALL & I WOULD HAVE TO PULL IT OVER & TURN THE TRUCK OFF AND RESTART IT. IN AUG I TOOK MY TRUCK TO FORD & THEY REPLACED THE THROTTLE BODY. 2 MONTHS LATER IT WAS STALLING AGAIN. FORD TOLD ME THAT IT WAS MISFIRING & THAT THEY NEEDED TO CHANGE THE PLUG BOOTS, SPARK PLUGS & THE FUEL FILTER. I WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS THE NEXT STEP THEY WERE REQUIRED TO DO. SO NOW I+M PAYING FORD TO TEST DIFFERENT THINGS & HOPE THAT SOMETHING WORKS. YESTERDAY I PULLED OUT ONTO A BUSY STREET & MY TRUCK STALLED. I WAS ALMOST T-BONED. I AM DRIVING A TIME BOMB. EVERY TIME I DRIVE THIS TRUCK I AM RISKING MY LIFE & EVERYONE AROUND ME.
