Recall Alert: Ford F-150 EcoBoost Engine Under Investigation for Losing Power During Acceleration
BMW has announced its plan to sell a limited edition 7 Series model called the V-12 Bi-Turbo.
Well my sisters truck is doing the exact same thing. Loss of power in the rain. She took it back to the dealer and they traded her out to a new one. And guess what happens? The exact same thing about a month later. She is from south texas and about to join the lawsuit cause when she went back a the second time, they tried to fix it but to no avail. She is still having the problem and they cannot fix it. We are done with ford and going to gmc cause my dads 2001 and 2008 sierras run great with no issues.
I have a new 2013 ford Taurus limiited AWD with the v6 3.5 ecoboost engine ...... FEEL LUCKY YOU GUYS!!! I had my car 38 days only 2033 miles it did exactly all this and more ! THE ENGINE BLEW! and guess what Ford will not back the warranty because there is water in the intake tube and air filter . I have no clue what to do now!
I EXPERINCE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY 2013 F150 ECOOBOOST (LOST OF POWER UNDER RAIN) PLUS BAD SHIFTING FROM 3 TO 1 GEAR, AND A SOUND WENT YOU PUT REVERSE. THEY SAY FORD WAS WORKING ON THE PROBLEM AND ALSO THE JUST REPROGRAM THE COMPUTER BUT NOTHING CHANGE.
This issue isnt being talked about with the other vehicles that use the Ecoboost engine. For one internals are different on this engine to handle the towing and higher torque values that are needed for this truck. The problem lies within the transmission specifically the torque converter. If throttle input is slowly applied while going up a slight incline the engine loses rpms so the torque converted should lock up and provide extra torque to continue moving the vehicle before a downshift is needed. In my 2011 i can feel it wanting to lock up but wont unless i either lose too much speed or the transmission decides to downshift. I have a 2011 supercrew with a 6.5ft bed with 3.55 rear. Havent been able to recreate the issue in a 2012 supercrew 5.5ft bed with 3.73 rear.
I know alot of people who own these trucks never heard about this problem must one of those welfare motor company's trying too gain market shares. Hmmmm.
I was traveling south in the outside lane on I 95 (Florida) during heavy rain, approaching a slower moving vehicle in front of me. I changed lanes and accelerated to approximately 70 mph, when the engine suddenly lost power, began to misfire and rapidly decelerated. The vehicle had been traveling in rainy conditions at highway speed for approximately 1 hour.
Since I had committed to make the overtaking maneuver and for the few seconds I was unable to accelerate and/or pull back into my original lane as I was traveling adjacent to the vehicle I was overtaking, I realized that there was another vehicle fast approaching me in the inside (fast/over taking) lane. Luckily the driver was observant enough to release of the impending collision a head if he did not take evasive action and slow down. After a few seconds I was able to pull back into outside/slow lane.
This loss of power and misfire continued for another 45 minutes, up until I exited the highway and drove to my local dealership.
Our 2012 F-150 Ecoboost stalled today and we Googled the problem and saw this article. It was 0730 and humid after a rain. My wife was following me while I was picking up a motorcycle and she pulled out in front of a 18 wheeler and it stalled on her. She is now scared to drive it! We're stationed at Ft. Jackson, SC and can we return the truck or is this a easy fix??? Stuck with scared wife and faulty truck.....
Please help if anyone knows. firstname.lastname@example.org
Okay, about time. I have a F 150 2011 ecoboost engine and experienced the engine failure on 3 occasions. Each time after the problem started the engine continued to fail. Problem found each time were a failed coil packs. Dealerships in Connecticut, Maryland and Delaware were aware of the issue and worked quickly to replace parts. Loaner cars were given during the period of repair. All problems were when mileage was under 10,000 miles. Now with 36,000 I have not had any issues. Fingers crossed. Took a while to get my trust back. I also have a 2010 MKS same engine, 59,000 miles with no problems ( that is except for a broken spark plug tip).
hey my F-150 was doing excactly what it says in the artical. i brought to the dealer 5 times , before they said it was the turbo sucking in mositure, causing to to misfire. Now my warrantee has run out. and my turbo is making noise when i first start up. Does anyone know the long term affect that this recall can do to the turbo ?
And there's no mention of any complaints with the SHO's, Flex's, MKT's, MKS's, and Explorers with the same engine? Hmmm.
