2012 FORD F250 POWERSTROKE LOW RPMS PROBLEMS

Is anyone having the same problem? Between 40-55 and going up a small incline my truck feels like it is chugging up the hill, like it needs more gas or something. Once I give it a little gas it will come out of this, but a brand new truck should not be having the problem...Any help would be great.

Have your dealer reflash the computer. Sounds like the drive pattern needs to be retrained. There was a bulletin out on this.

Unhappy

If you are at elevation and under load good luck with a fix. I have an early build 2011 that I just won a lemon law case on for this same issue. It is a known issue with the exhaust system under high heat and at elevation that they have been working on a fix for since late last year. It almost always happens right after the "cleaning exhaust filter" warning. My truck was in for 10 repair attempts and out of service for 81 days over the last 16 months. Problem is 90% plus of Ford consumers are at low elevation so the problem is not getting much attention. I hate to hear this is going on with the 2012 builds because the arbitrator awarded me a replacement so maybe my problems are not over yet!
