Default Ecoboost problem, engine light on.

Hey,
I was driving home from Calgary today and I was merging off an onramp when i gave it some gas and all of a sudden my engine light started blinking and every time i gave it gas it would hesitate and choke. almost felt like i blew a turbo or a coil pack went. I pulled over, shut the truck off, turned it back on and it was fine. I'm a little worried though, has anyone experienced this? It was raining bad but still.. never had this happen.

Hey fellow Albertan!! No, I didn't such a problem. And I drove through some pretty good downpours, like the one with hail and tornados last week...! No such issue. If the engine light blinked, your computer stored a code, which they'll be able to read at your dealership, unless you own or know someone that owns an OBDII reader...!

Good luck! Keep us posted!

I own one, I should plug it in and find out. I was a little worried when that happened
Hope its nothing major

Where are you from outbacktaz?

So i plugged in my SCT tuner cause thats the only thing i have right now and it showed no codes. The code went away when i started it up again so I'm assuming its a dealer thing that has to check it

Had the exact same thing happen to me last week a few times on a trip from Kansas to NC / VA and back. 2011 ecoboost with about 5,000 miles. It went away as well. Haven't taken it to the dealer yet. Others here seem to having the same problem. Not sure what it is.

Could it be bad gas as well? Or it could be a faulty coil pack. If you can, spray water with a bottle on your coil packs tonight. If you see a nice light show, have them replace it!!

It could be but i filled up about 300 km's prior to this happening so i don't think it was that. I'll take it to the dealer in a couple days and see what happens
