"Oh no, I feel the engine running. That's terrible!" Pansies...
So take it to the ****ing dealership, describe the problem and have them fix it dumbasses!!!NHTSA says Ford told dealers how to fix the issue but hasn't alerted owners. NHTSA investigations often lead to recalls.
So...Ford owners in Ohio and Louisiana recently sued Ford in federal court, claiming the EcoBoost engine is defective because it loses power during acceleration.
Thank you Robert , Hope that we can get the hiccups cured that will help a great deal , Had the same problem Sunday, Linda asked me you want a new Eco truck?Well it's just a boosted motor reacts differently, I've researched this some today I've seen 0 issues on sho forums I've only found the issues on the 11-12 f150, and I've been told the 13s had the fix from locals here, but from my knowledge and customers with these trucks in our area do not have the problem so I guess it's weather related
Darren the thread is fine ill put it another way u know how u are getting to much meth and making the car hiccup well same type of issue but ford has the technology to cut power when this happens does not mean the truck still doesn't run and drive normal it's just not gonna go full throttle, as the systems today are very advanced, the technology is pretty sweet but it's getting to the point were u need the ford diagnostics or a high end scan tool like I have which I have just over 10 grand in
Hope this clears up the confusion
Ecoboost v6 is what I referring to I'm unaware of the 4 cylinder models but I've read good things and great mileage
my mom has had her Escape for almost two weeks and loves it! SE model with the MyTouch stereo and 2.0L motor, its a lot of fun to drive.Forgive me for even starting this thread , The wife is in the market for a Ecoboost and we were just wondering about the issues .
It sounded like it misfired in the intake and broke a rod. It was loud.Rbrown the hiccup was a plug breaking down under boost I went thru this after adding my blower 10 years ago I thought hey this thing is fast then about 10k miles later its got a slight hesitation hmm must be bad wires nope finally I pulled plugs looked great swap in a new set perfect, so we put old plugs in buddy's car and it ran perfect, what this told me is a boosted setup the plugs must be perfect we're as the old plugs worked great on a all motor setup, I was not happy at first but learned that was the downfall to boost
Regardless of the cause, this means that Ford has acknowledged that there's a problem.NHTSA says Ford told dealers how to fix the issue but hasn't alerted owners.
That's the truth! ~Drivers ED. 101.Well look here last I read u are not suppose to pass until the front car is already around, the truck still accelerates in limp mode. I've [driven] one, it's just not balls to the wall power but it's as good as any normal vehicle.

No. My Flex has gone into limp mode and it will not drive like a normal car. Think more in line with the brakes full on and you trying to drive. It moves but barely.That's what I was thinking I believe the issue is the driver is used to all the extra power that a truck doesn't normally have and one hiccup and there freaking out, guys I've got a 05 5.4 3v with tune exhaust and intake and its no slouch but a bone stock ecoboost is a 14 sec track in any cab configuration u want so that's very strong, as we like to say around here u can't have everything
