i was driving my new 2013 f150 ecoboost in the rain and i tried to pull to the left to pass a slower car on the highway. as i went to give it gas, about 90% throttle, the truck felt like it hit a brick wall, stuttered and started shaking. the check engine light came on and i was unable to drive the car about 55 mph. if i tried to drive past that it would just shake. the truck had no power. i drove it like this for about five minutes and then the check engine light went off and everything was ok. on the way back about a week later, once again in the rain, the same thing happened. since then i have tried to duplicate this in dry conditions and the truck performs perfect. only when it is wet outside does this problem happen. *tr

since i purchased my truck there has been seven different occasions where i have accelerated to enter an interstate or pass a vehicle and the engine lost power and i could not accelerate. i have taken the truck in and they have replaced parts and said it was repaired. this past weekend i was entering the interstate in a construction area where barriers were on both sides of the interstate. i accelerated to enter the interstate and there were cars and a semi approaching where i entered. i accelerated to get up to speed with traffic and the truck stalled and would not take fuel. the approaching semi could not stop in time and had to swerve to miss me. he missed hitting me by inches and almost hit another car. with the barriers in place i could not get off the interstate when the truck stalled. i have the eco-boost engine and the vehicle is currently at the dealer. they are telling me they can not find anything that is causing the failure. this failure could have caused multiple injuries or deaths had the semi not been able to avoid hitting me or the other cars. i personally feel this is a safety issue with this engine. *tr

myself and my wife was traveling on a short four lane road when i attempted to accelerate to pass a slower vehicle. my f150 engine shuddered, i let off the accelerator, the shudder stopped. i then tried to accelerate again and nothing. it was like i was coasting, i had no power from the engine to accelerate. i continued to try and accelerate but nothing. this lasted for 15-20 seconds then it started to accelerate normally. this same type of lost of power has happened 3 times since then. the first two times it was raining heavily, the last two it was not. i have read about the issues documented with the f150 eco boost engine and i am sure this is that problem. unfortunately i read it after i bought the truck!! *tr

i had the tsb (for known surging issue) performed on my truck (2012 super crew 4x4) in may at 25k miles. everything seemed better, until... this past saturday, i left the house at 5am for a 7.5 hour/ 350 mile drive from home. it was raining continuously for the first two hours. sometimes hard rain, but it didn't stop for the first 2 hours. i was driving back country roads with mostly 55 mph limits and rolling hills. given the weather, type of roads, time of day, etc. i drove gently for the trip, never put my foot in it. then, when going up a steeper hill that required more throttle than the others to keep my speed up, the truck started hesitating. a lot. more than it ever had before the tsb. and then, just after the hesitation began, something extra occurred that had never happened to it before. the truck started to shudder. this shuddering was akin to driving over road shoulder rumble strips on steroids. as soon as i let off the gas, the shuddering stopped. i gently pushed the pedal, shuddering was back and just as bad. let off again. it stopped. pushed the pedal again. it came back. pushed the throttle once more, and it had stopped. i slowly pushed further on the throttle and it didn't do it any longer. by this time i was down to about 35-40 mph going up the hill. so i pushed down the pedal almost to the floor. the truck kicked down and accelerated with only slight moments of hesitation. not once did the check engine light come on. . thus, i had a textbook case of exactly what the tsb was supposed to solve, but didn't. *tr

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. *tr
