I WAS DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY IN THE FAST LANE. SUDDENLY THE WRENCH WARNING LIGHT AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON, AND THE CAR EXPERIENCED WHAT APPEARED TO BE A TOTAL LOSS OF ENGINE POWER. I PLACED THE HAZARD LIGHTS ON AND WAS ABLE TO NAVIGATE TO THE SHOULDER, WITH 18 WHEELERS AND OTHER CARS TRYING TO REACT TO MY SUDDEN LOSS OF POWER AND SPEED. AFTER TURNING THE CAR OFF, AND RESTARTING IT, IT APPEARS OK TO PROCEED. THIS SAME INCIDENT HAS HAPPENED NOW 8 TIMES IN THE LAST FEW DAYS. I TOOK THE CAR INTO FORD AND THEY ARE CLAIMING IT'S AN ISSUE WITH THE THROTTLE BODY. I MENTIONED THAT I SEE A THROTTLE BODY RECALL FOR 2015-2016 F-150'S, BUT FORD IS DENYING THE ISSUE, INDICATING THERE IS NO RECALL FOR MY 2013. I FIND MANY COMPLAINTS IDENTICAL TO MINE FOR F-150'S EARLIER THAN 2015. THEY ALSO CLAIM FORD DENIES THE ISSUE AND REFUSES TO FIX THE PROBLEM. MOST ALSO REFERENCE CONCERN FOR A SIGNIFICANT SAFETY ISSUE, FEELING THAT FORD WILL ONLY FIX THIS ONCE PEOPLE DIE. I TOOK MY F-150 TO THE LOCAL FORD DEALER TODAY AND THEY VERIFIED IT WAS THE THROTTLE BODY, AND ARE CHARGING ME $650 TO FIX IT. I HAVE READ FROM OTHERS THAT THE COMPONENT USED TO FIX THE PROBLEM IS THE ORIGINAL FAULTY COMPONENT, SO THERE IS NO REASON TO FEEL THAT THE PROBLEM WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN EVENTUALLY. I HAVE EXPERIENCED FOUR TIMES ON THE FREEWAY AT 65MPH, AND SEVERAL TIMES ON CITY STREETS AT 30MPH. I WAS DRIVING STRAIGHT, NOT BRAKING.
