Default 2018 2.7l ecoboost shutsdown

Hey guys, new member here and trying to get some info, so quick rundown, I have a 2018 F150 with the 2.7l ecoboost super crew with tow pkg, so I go on vacation and have a 6x10 enclosed trailer with a motorcycle Inside, total weight of trailer and bike 2000lb, after about 4hrs of driving I pull into a toll booth and truck just quits, comes up in dash Start/Stop manual restart required. I had never seen that before, so I start it and it quits again..I try this several times eventually I had to give it abit of gas to stay running and also have to put it in gear at a higher idle which it did not like, so I drive a mile or so where I can pull over and it quits again with same msg in dash..I got the truck back home and now it seems fine, anybody has this issue?

Sounds like the fuel injector issue. Read about it on the forum somewhere.

cool. If you wouldn’t mind on Friday, please ask them for the name of the flash and if there is a TSB number. If there is, update this thread so people can fix their trucks should they also experience the issue.
