I've been saying it since the beginning of these problems. It's not the motor, it's the transmission, torque converter and programming. The trans and TC are a poor setup for this truck with this...

I lost faith in Ford Customer Service when my assigned rep refused to return my calls. Then when she would answer the phone, and I knew it was her by her voice, she'd claim to be someone else stating...

I dumped mine, the second one after I lemoned the first, for a Ram 1500 with the 5.7 Hemi. And guess what, I get about 21 on the highway. About what I was getting with the Ecoboost. And it's...

I'd bet it isn't a plug issue. My truck did the same thing. I regapped and replaced the plugs. Had the CAC changed as well. Only thing that would resolve it was a reflash which was only a bandaid for...

I found the solution! No more shuddering! No more hard down shifts in to 4th! No more condensation issues! Yup, sold the Turd-150 and bought this:

The difference is the outer pads have no humps for the caliper pistons while the inners do. Don't know how that affected things, but, don't put both inner pads on one side. :)

That's funny. I was told the exact opposite with regards to coil continuity. Primary/Secondary circuit malfunctions should throw a DTC fairly quickly. At least in the amount of time we were testing. ...

My stock plugs weren't getting hot enough to self clean. The carbon on them was atrocious. Or the engine is running so rich it's loading up the cylinders. Either way, we'll see what happens.

I put about 500 miles a week on my truck. I'll pull them next weekend and see how they look. So far the hotter plugs are working great. I don't have any tunes or any other mods on my truck.

I pulled mine last night and found a freaking nightmare of factory gapping. Ranging from .034 to .046. Lots of carbon build up. On the wider gapped plugs there were striped of clean insulator. To me...

This.

They control intake noise. That's it. Take them out, hear more turbo. Put them back, hear less turbo. Same performance either way.

Take all your plugs out and put them in the drier, tumble low for 15 minutes. Then put them back in your truck. This seems to be how Ford gaps their plugs at the factory.

I'd sure like to know why my shudder either goes away or is almost non-existent when the KAM is cleared, but gradually comes back over the course of 5k miles while the transmission re-learns.

I've had every TSB done on my 2011 and now my 2012. It's great that they put on a band aid that falls off in 5-8k miles and goes right back to being a shuddering p.o.s. truck.

Burn it to the ground. All that flashing is just a band aid that will fall off in 4-6k miles.
