I got my truck on 4-5-13. tsb shroud was done 10-22. no cat replaced. truck ran poorly for months til april when I got tsb for intercooler replacement. replacement was completed, truck run little better but still wont spin tires. I do have 3.73 gears. truck acts like it is loaded up with fuel, then clears out and takes off just decent. milage was always 14.8-15 and now 15.8-16. I drive 15 miles to work and 15 back and 12 of 115 is 55mph. to me that's poor milage. again, I nevr got cats replaced.

Mine was built 11 May 2012.
BL34 9L440 AD

Should I be worried?
Also, if the dealership did the TSB before I bought it new on May 2013 (yeah, it was on the lot for a year...lol) where would this be listed?

Sounds like the CAC has been replaced in your truck already, as mine had the latest TSB, and my CAC starts with BL as well!

another quick update, It has been 93 hot and humid degrees here most of the week. Truck is still running great with no issues. I have put roughly 4,000 miles on my truck since having this done and it has not acted up 1 time since.

Wow that's bad as every tester I drove smoked the tires. I drove several. The last was a Lariat Screw 4WD with 3.31 axle and at the stop, it took off like a sluggish V6, then the turbos kicked in, it smoked the tires with bad wheel hop. Didn't expect this to happen as I was just trying to accelerate with the initial sluggish take off where it broke loose in the middle of the intersection. I did give it full throttle as the initial acceleration was very poor.

If yours doesn't do that, I'd take it back. A power surge like that, at full throttle, should break the tires loose. Unless Ford is adding in additional torque management to make it safer in wetter conditions so the 'surge' doesn't cause loss of traction.

Got my truck back last week after the new CAC. It still "chugs" a little at idle when first starting cold, but after a few seconds it clears up. Noticed no reduction in power (like some others here had stated) while driving and I did notice that the slight hesitation was gone while accelerating quickly. The big test was pulling my 24' enclosed car trailer, in the rain, with my 66 Mustang inside. I floored it at least 3 times and the truck had plenty of power with no hesitation or shuddering, etc. So far, so good!

I pulled a 72 Chevy long bed this past weekend and didn't care about the gas mileage getting home. Speed varied from 55 to 90 mph. Didn't experience any Shudder. I do have a 2013 that I bought back in December. Now I have 9k miles and its finally getting 20+ mpg driving to work and back. I was only getting around 17 mpg.

I had the TSB performed on my truck (2012 Super Crew 4x4) in May at 25k miles. Everything seemed better, until...

Truck backstory:
Until this past weekend, the furthest this truck ever went was about 90 miles from home. My mileage on the truck comes from a work commute of 43 miles each way. The truck had never gone more than 50 miles from the house until 2 weekends ago, when we went the 90 miles for a wedding (interstate conditions, nice, 80 degrees, sunny day.) Only the slightest surging before the TSB, and noticed on my daily commute that if I didn't put my foot in it regularly, it would hesitate when asked for full steam. So I had the TSB performed. Never a check engine light. No other problems.

This past saturday, I left the house at 5AM for a 7.5 hour/ 350 mile drive from home. It was raining continuously for the first two hours. Sometimes hard rain, but it didn't stop for the first 2 hours. I was driving back country roads with mostly 55 MPH limits and rolling hills. Given the weather, type of roads, time of day, etc. I drove gently for the trip, never put my foot in it. Then, when going up a steeper hill that required more throttle than the others to keep my speed up, the truck started hesitating. A lot. More than it ever had before the TSB. And then, just after the hesitation began, something extra occurred that had never happened to it before. The truck started to shudder. This shuddering was akin to driving over road shoulder rumble strips on steroids. As soon as I let off the gas, the shuddering stopped. I gently pushed the pedal, shuddering was back and just as bad. Let off again. It stopped. Pushed the pedal again. It came back. Pushed the throttle once more, and it had stopped. I slowly pushed further on the throttle and it didn't do it any longer. By this time I was down to about 35-40 MPH going up the hill. So I pushed down the pedal almost to the floor. The truck kicked down and accelerated with only slight moments of hesitation. Not once did the check engine light come on. About 20 minutes later I was in clearer weather and dry roads. So I let the truck drop down to about 40 MPH and gave it full throttle, it seemed to have minimal hesitation and behaved more like normal. The rest of the trip, I would get on the throttle more aggressively every so often to try to keep the moisture build-up to a minimum. I did the same coming back home.

Thus, I had a textbook case of exactly what the TSB was supposed to solve.

Update. Took a trip this past week from Alabama to West Virginia towing a Victory Highball motorcycle. Hit a lot of rain on the trip both ways. While in VA going up a long mountain on the interstate I floored it and the got hesitation then the transmission light started flashing. I think the truck went into a limp mode. I pulled over turned the truck off. Restarted and everything was fine. While driving around in WV I noticed a lot of hesitation when pulling out. On the way back I noticed some of the shuttering. After we made it home we went shopping and experienced a TPS fault flashing on the screen. After we restarted it too went away. Needless to say I am taking the truck in to get checked out. I wonder if I should disconnect the intercooler and see if there is any water in it!
