Foose,
I also live in northern Alberta and experienced the same dangerous situation. Almost all the highways here are two-lane and I need to travel a lot for work, but now I never know if I can safely pass a semi. The engine falter has also given me scares when trying to pull away from a stop, such as crossing a highway or turning left after stopping at an intersection. I try to go, but the truck just limps into the path of oncoming traffic. I explained the dangerous situation to the service manager at local dealer and he just shrugged. I guess there will be fatalities and lawsuits before Ford takes this seriously.

What I dont understand about this Shudder/Limp mode issue, is the factories install the same parts on the same models for the past 3 years and yet some say they got issues others not. This makes no sense at all. It has to be climate/conditions/driving style to preempt this failure. Ford tried to replace/redesign or do some Computer mods to eliminate the water build up and yet some who have received the changes are still experiencing the same issues. So Ford is replacing the trucks with more defective or ineffective parts/fixes and yet there are aftermarket CAC/IC products on the market, yet there is no claim to guarantee that there product is going to eliminate the water issue or engine stalls.(no disrespect intended). If it is a fix then the aftermarket product needs to start selling these to Ford as true replacement parts(just suggestion). Instead of complaining on this site there needs to be complaints filed on the NHTSA website, maybe there influence will create some kind of information from Ford as to there efforts to put out a once and for all fix that will end this debate. JMHO!

What you described sounds like the normal Eco delay when you stomp on the gas. It will hesitate then the turbos will spool up and then you feel like you are in a rocket ship until you let up on the gas.
When mine failed the truck lost all power and shook violently. I had to limp to the shoulder and wait for the engine to stop shaking. Then I drove off slowly and all seemed OK. I had been driving for about 3 hours in dense fog before I stomped on the gas to pass a semi when it failed.
I had the CAC replaced early this month (after waiting for the CAC since November) but haven't been in the right conditions to test the fix.

For those reporting it is NOT fixed only: Do you have a 2012 with TSB, or a 2013 w/o CSB. Which CAC part number do you have?

just had my cac and reprogrammed my pcm done today. Took 3 weeks to get the part. Mine is a 2012 eco. My truck wasnt doing what most have said. I only noticed a issue when going up a long slight inclined hill it would seem to have a slight hesitation if the truck didnt down shift. But since the pcm was reprogrammed the dealer said I would notice the truck shift a little harder since they did the pcm. But they said it would go away in a couple of days once the computer learned how I drive. It does shift slightly harder but not bad. Here is what exactly my invoice says, Cause, charge air cooler not working properly. Correction, checked DTC's, replaced the cac assembly, installed the cac shield, and reprogrammed the PCM. So how are your guys trucks after the fix?

Mine is a 2012 that I had the TSB done on 2/27/13. Since then I've tried to make it do as it did before in the rain or fog, and although I haven't driven in heavy fog again, I've certainly driven in the rain for several hours at a time. I have not been able to make it stall (or cogh like a smoker). You guys that are complaining about passing I have no idea what you could be talking about. When I'm on two lane and intend to pass, when I get a clear shot I stomp this puppy and hold on. It sometimes downshifts into 4th and doesn't kick out till 80. My truck has a governor on it so when it hits 100 it kicks back the power. I personally think that sucks but that's the way mine is programmed. Hope all of you get your's fixed. If not, get rid of them and get something your happy with. Life's to short to wait on a conglomerate like Ford to give you satisfaction.

tony montana, any update on your trucks performance? I have the same slight hesitation/miss on slight inclines under light load that you had and I just got the call yesterday that the replacement CAC is in. I'm curious to know if your hesitation has improved or worsened or stayed the same before I make my appointment. Thanks!
