I’m at my wits end with my truck…

Hi All,

I don’t post much here but I am an avid reader of the forum. I’m at my wits end with my truck…$68K (MSRP) truck and I have to put up with this I have a 2012 F350 DRW KR, 6.7 with about 9400 miles. I have had the truck about 11 months. I have read similar issues on this forum as I’m having just not quite sure if it’s identical. The issue began shortly after purchasing new. Here is a good example: I leave work and drive about 8 miles…engine is warm…I stop at the store for about 10 minutes…then crank up and exit the parking lot onto the road and stop t the red light…mostly just a high idle to get to that point. Turn right at the red light and when I begin to accelerate the engine almost dies…seems like it is almost sputtering…I let off the accelerator a little and it finally begins to run somewhat correctly. After this, it seems there is a loss of power for a while.

I have carried it to two different dealers…their answer is they can’t duplicate and therefore refuse to do anything The truck does the very same thing 98% of the time I stop. Even driving for 2 hours…stop at a rest stop…when I begin to accelerate as I’m leaving…same thing. It has done this one time while towing my camper.

Sorry to be long winded…any advice is very much appreciative.

Thanks in advance...Steve

Damn that sucks to hear.. Have you tried getting a camera to record it? I had to do this with my Ford Fusion.. Which almost killed me once..

Sometimes it's worth buying a GoPro camera or something.. Or pulling out the cell phone to record.

I hope that it gets resolved buddy

I have a 6.4L. I know its different, but before deleting, my truck really hated short commutes like the ones you mention. On my way to work I would stop at the store on my way to work or school and my truck will act similar to your 6.7 when I will leave the store. After reading through the forums, I learned that this trucks hate short commutes.

Thanks "98"! I'm going to have to get something to record the behavior...it's driving me nuts! Afraid someone is going to hit me before this issue is resolved. I will see if I can get something on my phone for the dealer.

Thank "086" for the response. The issue I have surfaces on short and long commutes. Could be turbo related...I'm just not smart enough on diesels to figure it out.

Just throwing this out there, but if it is sucking air into the fuel system it will cause some weird stuff. Have the filters been changed yet?

Good point...I'll have the fuel filters changed. Could very well be the culprit.

Thanks for the response!

I once had a traction control issue that sounded similar to what you are describing. Just a thought.

Thanks guys for the responses. Yea, not quite cold enough in AL to gel the fuel...does not matter what the temp...summer or winter still wants to die.

Don't believe it a traction problem. Sounds like and feels like the engine just wants to "cut off"...lack of fuel or turbo issues? Kind a like the old gas engines when they would spit and sputter due to lack of gas or timing issue, except the truck really don't sputter as bad as the engine seems to want to die. Weird.

Thanks guys I really appreciate all of the feedback.
