2012 Ecoboost Intercooler TSB
I have a 2012 F 150 with the ecoboost engine. I bought it new a couple of months ago. I currently have about 3600 miles on it. I was driving in to work last week at around 50 mph when the engine shuttered a few times. I was going up a very slight incline. Since then the engine has shuttered off and on several times. The fuel milage has dropped from my average of 17.6 to 16 also.
I took the truck into the dealer this morning to let them look at it. The service manager said no codes were stored and that Ford has issued a new TSB on the intercooler. He said they are having to order one for me.
The mechanics supervisor walked up and I talked to him briefly. He told me that this was a new TSB on the intercooler and my truck would be the first change out at the dealership with this new design. He said after they change the intercooler, they would flash my trucks computer. He also said that Ford has had issues with the engines runnning performance since day one and this new intercooler design is supposed to correct the enigne shutter, engine missing and lower fuel economy. He also told me that there was no stored codes just as the service manager stated but he also said if there had been a code it would probably have been due to a failed left cat converter and it would have had to be changed.
Now to my questions...
Is there a new designed intercooler for this truck and has anyone already had one installed and has it eliminated issues?
