2010 XLT 5.4 - Engine Problem!!
Had my oil changed at Valvoline (I know...but it was overdue and I was heading out on a road trip the next day). Truck ran fine that day, then we left to go out of town the following day.
Truck seemed to run fine all morning. We made a stop, got back on the road. I went to pass a slow moving vehicle and romped on it a little. Right after I overtook the vehicle it began to bog...then REALLY bog...then died and we rolled to a stop in a parking lot. Lifted the hood and looked it over. Got back in and tried to start it a few times and it would fire, then sputter out. The dash was showing the oil symbol. Checked the oil, it looks fine. I tried to restart, same start then sputtered out. Now the wrench light is on, oil light is off. I remembered the guy at Valvoline had my air filter out, so I removed it, made sure it was seated, pull the sensor and reconnected it. Then talked on the phone to the service mgr at my dealer for a few min. Got back in and it started up and ran fine. Oil pressure and temp per the dash guages was fine throughout this ordeal, I even noted it as it began to bog the first time.
Anyway, we were no where near a dealer and just said screw it and kept on driving. It seemed to sputter a little now and again whenever I had to accelerate quickly or had a steep grade and then engine had more load. I never pushed it the rest of the trip just in case. On the way back home I had to enter highway traffic, romped on it and it start running funny again. Thankfully I made it home. Still no engine light or anything.
Is there anything those guys at Valvoline could have done?
Obviously I will take it to the dealer Monday, but it's Saturday afternoon and I'm fishing for anything you guys got!! Thanks!!
