High RPM Slow GO

Hey guys my 2009 PSD FX4 I do not drive everyday. When it sits for a couple of days it starts fine but when I go to put it into drive and step on the pedal the rpms go up and the truck goes very slow like the transmission is having trouble engaging. It is like I have it in neutral and just reving the engine. After a couple of minutes it does ok and I have no problems when I drive it on back to back days. It is in a garage all teh time as well. Think I need to take it into Ford? I have only 11,000 miles on her. Thanks for the time!!

I had this problem - only like after driving 2 hours on the interstate and then pulling off on an exit ramp or stopping at a light. Upon trying to accelerate engine would rev but could never make it more than 10-15 mph. After no codes - multiple trips to the (fantastic) dealer with no problem ever being duplicated - no warranty work ever being performed - the dealer allowed me a great trade (and I didn't buy the first truck there) to a different truck from a 08 to a 10 but still with the 6.4. Mind boggling.

Mine does it everytime it sits for more then a day. I dropped it off Friday so it would sit there over the weekend and they are going to look at it today. I hope to hear something today but I am not holding my breath.

I go to wash the truck b4 taking it in on Friday and notice that the "chrome" I mean plastic on the rims is no loger attached. The only thing holding it on is the wheel balance weights. So I take it in Friday so it can sit over the weekend and they can look at it on Monday. So I call the guy at 4 pm today and say what did you find out. He tells me well he looked at it Saturday and it went into drive with no problem WTF. I am like are you an idiot I wrote it out for you to let it sit over the wekend he says oh yea I forgot. I said that is why I wrote it out for you but I guess he couldn't take the time to type it into his little tablet he had. So I told him to leave it SIT until Thursday and then start it up and put it in Drive and it won't go then Diagnose it. They are ordering 4 new wheels for it as well. Will update when I hear from them on Thursday

Well the dealer called and said it didn't do it after sitting from Monday untill today it went into drive just fine with no problems imagine that. I guess I will have to video tape it and plug my computer in every time I start it after it sits for a couple of days to get data to give to them. The new wheels are suppos eto be in tommorrow so hopefully I can get it back. I may have to get a 2nd mortgage though to fill with diesel near $4.00 here.

Yes that was the first thing I checked and it was in the normal range. Some have suggested adding a quart to see if that helps and I am going to ask the dealer about it when I go to pick it up.
