Again, the OP's post is a little unclear. I take it that the truck has less than 50 miles total and when he tried to set the cruise, the engine died. Cruise may or may not have anything to do with it. Could be something simple, or not. Hopefully he will report the findings.

To the OP: I hope the issue is simple and you find satisfaction with your new Ford truck.

Well there's your problem right there! Ford installed the wrong engine!

I hope your joking??? There are no "bore oil channels" Maybe you typoed and meant oil control rings???

I'm happy to look into this, TomBar. Could you please verify the model year of your truck? Please fill me in with the details, including any updates since it has been at the dealer.

I'll be on the lookout for a reply! Have a good day.

On another site we call them One Post Wonders
Many people create accounts & post the same thing on multiple sites
Then you never hear from them again
....and Wonder what happened

Since he's "Not Happy"....I wonder if he is Doc, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Bashful....or......?

Yep, never happened. On a side note, I set my bore oil channels to max flow and I am happy to report that I have 125,000 trouble free miles, many of those on cruise control.

Oil channels makes sure that the flow is adequate for the blinker fluid reservoir.
