Report from my last visit at North Bros. Ford trying to fix this engine stalling issue.
Terry at North Bros Ford in Westland, MI called me around 1:00pm 6/9/2011 and told me they could not reproduce the stalling engine issue, to come over and get your truck.
He asked me if I was a left foot braking driver and I said yes I am, having done road racing, fastest way to the brake pedal.
They could not reproduce the stalling engine in the 20miles of which the mechanic said he did, of which is a lie because my odo read 8.1 miles when I picked it up, I made sure I zeroed the odo before I took it in.
This is what was reported on the work sheet performed at North Bros. Ford
DD: DRIVEABILITY DIANOSTIC
CUSTOMER STATES THAT INTERMITTENLY WHEN ACCELERATE
FROM A STOP ENGINE HESITATES AND WILL NOT REV UP
INTERMITTENLY BETWEEN 1ST AND 2ND GEAR
Work performed by JEFFREY SNYDER (010)
ROAD TESTED UNABLE TO VERIFY CONCERN CUST IS A 2 F
OOTED DRIVER AND IS POSSIBLY ACTIVATING THE BOA (B
RAKE OVER ACCELERATOR) FEATURE PER SSM 21769
As I stated before in the (2) dangerous instances where the stalling engine occurred
there is no way I would have hit the brake with my left foot while accelerating and I
know I did not, beside I will never hit the brake pedal and gas at the same time, why?
SO! I will keep driving my truck knowing I still have the engine stalling problem.
Someday down the road it will get fixed, I am positive!!!
I sure hope Ford Engineers have a fix for this engine stalling problem,
otherwise we are in deep doo doo again and yes….
I am still a proud Ford Retired Employee that cares a lot.
In spite of this problem, I still love my new 2011 Ford F350 with the 6.7L
