Ford basically told me to stick it. Need help.
2008 F-350 King Ranch 6.4. I've posted my problem before but it still exists and will forever according to ford. After long periods of steady driving ( 100 miles with cruise) and accelerate hard to pass someone, it won't go for 5-6 seconds. Then it picks up and runs great. Sometimes I get the white smoke, most times I don't. At least I don't see any. Sometimes it will miss while trying to accel from a stop. It only does this after a long,steady drive. It may be a coincidence but it seems to do it only in high humidity. I go to West Texas or New Mexico, I can't make it do it. Took it to dealer last week. Same crap. Could not duplicate, no codes. He gave me the 800 # to ford and said complain to them. Great customer service said the engineers told them it was a charachteristic of this truck and there was nothing they would do. No help. No buyback. Nothing. Didn't matter that I've had Ford trucks for 20 years. Has anybody been able to fix the no- go problem? Do I put more money into it trying to solve the problem? Will dpf/egr delete fix it? Safe to say I will never buy another ford. Thanks for any input.
