Done it again last monday. This time the tow haul light came on. I had to reach down and shut it off feather the throttle until the motor started running normal. Going to ford this week I will keep everyone updated. Until then ecoboost owners pass with care!

Check for leaks in the turbo.

OK Fellas....With all the EB stuff on here I just had poke a little... No harm intended.

I'm getting about 17.5 to 19mpg with my 5.0. I just dont think the extra 2-4mpg more is worth dealing with a freaking turbo. I think it sounds like a good idea in theory, but turbos are for sports cars. Plus, you cant beat the sound of that 5.0!

And every big truck on he road. There are more turbos in trucks than there are sports cars.

No problems here. When I romp on the gas all I hear is the roar of a finely tuned v8 5.0 engine.

It's actually 1 mpg better and significantly less while towing. Oh yeah it also costs another 2k dollars for that privilege.

Amazing the amount of people who own or have owned a diesel, bash the EB because it has turbos. Makes no sense. And the 5.0 towing is about the same as the EB, both are going to drink th gas. But at least th EB doesnt take a back seat to th Hemi

If the turbo goes you'll probably see plenty of smoke come from the tailpipe - just think of how bad the smoke is when the Ecoboosts are first started.

It sounds like a fuel pressure problem, I think another person on this site had the HPFP go bad on them which gave about the same symptoms
