About may of 2017 I noticed a shutter and shaking of the engine, then lose of power, failure to accelerate on hills, the vehicle would down shift for no reason or you had to put the gas peddle to the floor to even move then it would kick in and cause the wheels to spin. It has happened on the highway at 70mph trying to accelerate to 75 mph too. There is no difference in the drive, you step on the gas and surge ahead. The tailgate steps and box side steps make getting into the bed no problem at all.
Those tall bed walls, however, can be a bit of a hindrance when trying to access a tool box or gear in the bed's center. This issue has been researched via info on this site to no conclusion. We limped the vehicle home that day. Upon trying to pass another vehicle the gas pedal was pressed to accelerate. This truck is everything I had hoped for and more.
I do not feel safe anymore taking this vehicle anywhere and cannot trust it. When it shifts down it also causes the rear tires are lock up and I have lost control momentarily trying to drive at highway speeds. Loss of power is felt while driving on city and highway driving.

The vehicle was taken to another independent mechanic who was unable to diagnose the failure.
On the third time I had Ford install the deflector to keep water away from the turbo chargers. My wife was not too crazy about the truck at first until she drove it. Vehicle Details The 2012 Ford F-150 has a sophisticated yet practical truck interior. The vehicle was restarted and was able to drive. This fix seems like a band aid, and Ford should be doing a complete redesign of the turbo cooler intake. To add to my amazement, my fairly expensive extended warranty didn't cover this, not even the coil pack replacement, which to me seems like a warranty issue considering they went bad so early into the engines life. Problems increases in southern humid states.
The contact also mentioned that the check engine warning light illuminated. I took it to the dealer and they ordered parts, but didn't seem to confident of being able to fix the problem. I will be taking it to a dealer this week. I pulled over this time the light came on and stayed on. I have a 2012 F-150 3. The vehicle was repaired but the failure recurred fours days later.
