The check engine light came on and we pulled over then when I put the truck into drive to pull out it barely moved. We were almost hit bc the truck wouldn't move so I put in in reverse to get out of the road and it did fine. So I tried to pull out again n drive and again it wouldn't go no matter how much gas I gave it. It sounds like something is drownding out or it isn't getting gas. But like I said. It won't go forward in drive or 1st or 2nd. Only in reverse will it move normally. This is major!!! I can't have my kids at risk bc there's something wrong with the truck. I have only had the truck about 3 weeks so it's very frustrating.

Engine - while driving on a highway, went to pass a car and the engine light came on and the message was the engine will be shutting down. I pulled to the side of the road and the truck turned itself off. What the Ford mechanic said the #4 fuel injector stayed wide open, therefor burning up the piston. The truck had 128,000. Miles. It is sad that a small part like that can cause an engine failure. Had to buy a new motor ($15,000. And they would only warranty it for 2 years. ) was told I could have my truck back in 5 days. It took 5 wks to get my truck back with the new engine. Picked it up at 4pm on Wednesday. Thursday at 9:30am check engine light came on. The check engine light has come on three more times.
09/05/2016 purchased 2016 Ford. 11/24/16 fuel filter pluged, replaced at landers Ford benton ar. 12/23,2016 check engine light (codes p008a, low fuel pressure/ and p0170 , something to do wioth the fuel) took to donley forsd galion ohio. They were not sure what to do but sugested changing the fuel filters. Truck was under waranty but charged me to do so mileage was 27,486. 1/12/16 check engine light again took to hacienda Ford edinburg, TX found codes p0170 (second time) and p229f some kind of sensor. They checked the fuel and found metal in the fule filter, lines and tank. I was told that the high pressure pump had failed and that is where the metal was comming from. They replaced fuel system kit, 8 injectors, high pressure pump,steel lines,return line, fuel filtersand flushed fule lines and fuel tank. Mileage was 29446. I lost a half tank of fuel appx 15 gals. And had to pay $19. 74 for fuel to restart the truck. I believe my lost fuel and the other should have been covewred under waranty. I forgot to mention the parts were under back order and I had to wait several days for them to get the parts. Repairs completed 1/21/16 mioleage 29,362. 04/12/16 check engine light again p0170 again mileage 45240 was told by donley Ford that they will moniter something called oasis for repair per ssm#45737. So Ford does not know what is causing this or how to fix the problem. I use my truck for work, transporting RV trailers so I need to rely on it. Needless to say I do not have much confidence in this vehicle.

While at a dead stop, placed truck in drive and the engine suddenly accelerated to full power lunging the vehicle forward 10' while I simultaneously applyed both feet to the brake for maximum stopping power. This is the third time in two to three months this has happened. No check engine lights are on. Took my car to the local Ford dealer and was told by the service manager that they have never heard of this problem before. Researched the internet only to find lots of other simular complaints. Originally thought it was human error, floor mat, or simular problem. . . But this last time, I was prepared because of previous incidents. This problem can cause a terrible accident and may even result in death.

I have had many engine problems with my 6. 4 diesel from loss of engine power , to lack of power , white /grayish smoke, hesitation , engine almost dying to acceleration and almost causing an accident, I even had an occasional engine light come on, gurgling sounds , whooping sounds and grinding ,metallic sounds coming from my engine. I was told by multiple dealerships that if there is no engine light there is no code if there is no code there is no problem. I was told that my truck was probably going through it's regen process and that the truck will perform poorly when this happens. I now have 9000 miles on my truck this started around 1000 miles and I'm still having issues. I have contacted a lawyer and I'm very disappointed with my vehicle and the dealerships , along with Ford motor company who now know I have this problem.
My 2002 Ford F-250 superduty (7. 3 diesel) truck broke down while coming back from the mountains. Check engine light. . . . Harsh banging in the drive train (almost like hitting a huge pot hole at highway speeds) and then the truck died. My truck and trailer had to be towed to eagle colorado (the nearest dealership). Sure enough, as I suspected and have seen from about ten other owners of these trucks, it was the camshaft position sensor. The repair was $237. 56. I only write today, because msn reports that Ford is finally recalling these vehicles due to the cps. How nice of them to do it after most of us have already broken down on the side of the road with this exact problem. . . I know I am only one guy and I only know 12 other people with this engine, but I think it is funny that everyone I know with over 60k miles has had this happen. My truck only has 58k on the odometer. Several of us carry a spare cps and the tools to replace it with us in the truck at all times. In case anyone wants to know, they seem to fail more regularly after they have been replaced.

While braking the vehicle lurches forward and then it shuts down, which causes limited steering and braking abilities. The consumer has taken the vehicle to the dealer approximately three times, and was told that they couldn't do anything about it unless the problem occurred for them. On may 30, 2005 the consumer was driving the vehicle and had to brake because of the traffic in front of him, when this occurred, the vehicle lurched forward and the engine just cut out, like it was never started. This caused the consumer's vehicle to rear end the vehicle in front of him. The vehicle was taken to a body shop and it was repaired. The consumer spoke to Ford and was told that there was nothing they could do. Per consumer, none of the above is accurate. The consumer wrote: while braking, the rpm revved up, the vehicle lurched forward, then the rpm dropped and the engine had shut down. The check engine light illuminated. It would take several attempts to start the vehicle . This would occur intermittently. Each time the consumer had taken the vehicle in for repairs, the dealer would be unable to find the problem. Other problems: the cruise control was inoperative and the vehicle would die when the brakes were applied at times. Ford recalled the same make model years 2003-2005. The consumer felt that the recall started with his vehicle's year make and model.
Vehicle was driving poorly while accelerating and hesitated. Consumer noticed the check engine light flashed on, then flashed off. Consumer drove vehicle to the dealer for inspection. The problem could not be duplicated.
Without warning the vehicle died. Caller had to wait awhile to get it started. Dealer said they could not find anything wrong with vehicle. Caller took vehicle to dealer 8 times. Manufacturer has not been contacted yet. Caller said at the beginning the check engine light would come on, and dealer replaced something to fix that. Nothing gives him notice that the engine is going to die.
The vehicle will lose power with the engine light coming on, cause unknown. The Ford dealership has had the vehicle for three days, stating that vehicle was getting some sort of resistance. The vehicle was again failing with the same problem. The consumer states that he had taken the vehicle to another Ford dealer and they seemed to have remedied the problem-linkage accelerator. The windshield was leaking-resealed-still leaking. The vehicle has been okay since the last repair. Now the windshield is leaking water, and is running behind the dashboard. The consumer has also experienced the following: when stopping the vehicle feels like the drivline shifts forward-loud bang,when starting off, the vehicle shifts backwards, the connector is not fully seated(pcm module), and the injector harness intermittenly opens-repair loose left valve cover injector harness connector causing high resistance cleared.
