I WAS DRIVING ON I 26 AND A WARNING CAME ON SAYING TO SLOW DOWN AND PULL OVER SAFELY. I DAD NO CHANCE TO DO THIS AS THE COMPUTER PUT THE VEHICLE IN "LIMP MODE". AN 18 WHEELER NARROWLY MISSED HITTING MY TRUCK AS WE MOVED TO THE SHOULDER AND THE ENGINE DIED. THE TRUCK WOULD NOT START FOR ABOUT 45 MINUTES. WE THEN DROVE TO THE DEALER WHO SAID HE COULD FIND NOTHING OTHER THAN A WARNING TO CHANGE THE OIL. IN THE PAST 2 WEEKS, THE TRUCK HAS SHUT DOWN TWICE AGAIN. A TOW TRUCK HAD TO BE CALLED BOTH TIMES. THE FIRST TIME I WAS ON I 77 AND THE TRUCK WENT INTO LIMP MODE AND THE SHUT DOWN AS I PULLED TO THE SHOULDER. THE NEXT TIME I WAS ON US 521 GOING UPHILL WITH NO SHOULDER. THE TRUCK AGAIN WENT INTO LIMP MODE AND THEN STOPPED ON THE HIGHWAY. CARS AND TRUCKS WERE SWERVING TO AVOID US. MY WIFE WAS CRYING BECAUSE SHE WAS CERTAIN THAT AN 18 WHEELER WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO MISS US. I CALLED THE SHERIFF AND FORD AND LATER HAD THE TRUCK TOWED. THESE TWO TIMES, THE CAUSE WAS AN EGT EXHAUST GAS TEMPERATURE SENSOR FAILURE. I BELIEVE #2 FAILED AND THEN #3 (THERE ARE 4 OF THESE SENSORS). DEPENDABILITY IS OF COURSE AN ISSUE HERE. BUT THE REAL ISSUE IS SAFETY. FORD HAS DESIGNED A COMPUTER SYSTEM THAT STOPS THE VEHICLE NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE TO SAVE THE ENGINE AND/OR THE EMISSIONS SYSTEM. IN DOING SO, THE LIVES OF THE DRIVER AND PASSENGERS ARE PUT AT RISK AND COULD BE KILLED AS A RESULT.
