I never had an issue until 66K and so far just the single incident. Towing my TT in a few weeks up to the PA mountains from SC. See what happens. The $70 to fix it is not the issue to me, it's the fact Ford should be fixing these as needed at no charge.

I'll jump on the ford warranty sucks band wagon. Took my '11 5.0 in for a highway and take off shudder and at first they refused to even acknowledge that it existed blaming the "chopped up truck tires" that were on it at the time (LT235/85r17E Discoverere H/T with even wear). Finally pushed the issue enough for them to run some basic diagnostics and came up with excessive misfires on #8 with a mode $06...which they wanted $400 to repair by simply replacing the spark plugs. Was informed that because I live in MI my truck is automatically on the severe service schedule despite primarily highway miles, so plugs are not a 100,000 mile interval plus they were adamant that no matter what spark plugs are a "wear" item and are strictly non-warranty. I went through 2 local dealers, corperate and the customer support present on these forums with uniform denials.


To top it off, after finally giving up and replacing the plugs myself the problem persists. It did get MUCH better but its still there. Now I am developing chassis electrical gremlins as well, but since I'm well outside the bumper to bumper at 50k miles I will either have to fix them myself or just shut up and put up.


I'm a, was a, big fan or Ford products... but between their terrible warranty coverage not just me, look at all the issues the EB trucks and the manual trans mustangs are having) and some other issues I am starting to think I may have to look elsewhere after this vehicle.

So we had the TSB done (not sure what they did but something with the CAC and reprogrammed it) and it's been raining for a few days now, and hasn't skipped a beat. You'd think if moisture was the problem the first 2 times, then by now it would have reared it's ugly head, right? Well, so far so good...but now I have other issues...for a new thread.

Had mine done yesterday. The reprogramming seems to have put in more low end torque, but it's been in the 90's here and for the foreseeable future.

I am done with Ford for a long time to come. Having a truck that only runs well in cool dry weather, is not an acceptable truck. My F150 FX4 Ecoboost bucked, hesitated and surged even as I was taking it to be traded in. At 50k, it was almost in need of its 3rd set of tires, and it needed brakes all the way around. The rear slip-yolk pinged and bound every time I came to a stop, and every time I took off. I never owned a truck that was more effected by wind or vehicle wash, and I never owned a vehicle that got less than the stickered mileage. Fords response "sorry we couldn't meet your expectations" are words I won't forget anytime soon. Needless to say, I didn't buy another Ford, even though I tried to buy a Super Duty. Most Ford dealers wouldn't even give me within 4k of bluebook trade-in. That speaks volumes for how Ford feels about their used F150's. A lot of the ride characteristic issues I can't blame on Ford. I am the exception in a consumer who buys a truck and wants a truck. Most people these days put on a leveling kit and want it to ride like a car. I'm am so glad that this ordeal is finally over. It is amazing how the best vehicle and the worst were both Fords. (2000 Excursion Diesel / 2012 F150 FX4). I want to thank everyone on this site for keeping me informed. Who knows, maybe someday I will be back...

It recently occurred to me that I've got the 'dreaded' 55-60mph shudder with my truck (2013 F150 XLT 5.0 4x4, 302B, etc.) Will be calling the dealership this week to see what the fix is - and unfortunately for them,

a) I'm intelligent enough to know that if this was truly a TC issue, I'd be having it in more than one gear, and
b) I've got all these nice gentlemen on F150Forums who have helped to edumacate me.

Good idea, Kung. What's the current mileage on your truck? I'll see what I can do to help as well.

That would be appreciated, Crystal. I believe I just turned over 14K yesterday - can give exact mileage if needed. Do I need to provide you with any other info prior to giving them a call?

Hi Kung,

Go ahead and call your dealership to make an appointment, then PM me some additional information so I can alert your regional customer service manager. In your message to me, include your full name, best daytime phone number, VIN, and preferred servicing dealership. I'll do the rest.

Crystal

Crystal,
Is there a known shudder/ jerking problem with the 2013 5.0 trucks? I have this problem an the dealership could not recreate it. Then tell me there is no problem concerning the tsb 13-8-10 it only for the 3.5 eco's. So in turn dealership trying to make me look stupid an try not get there hands dirty to see why my truck would even shudder or jerk at cruising speeds. This occurred over a 1800 mile road trip with hills! Any info would helpThanks for your time
