I actually still do own a Ford so I'm in the right forum, for now. If this was the only issue I had and had driven 175,000 carefree miles I'm sure I would feel differently. This truck has stranded me now 3 times in 3 1/2 years. It's has had an electrical issue since it had 600 miles on it that disables the stability control and anti lock brakes when it's wet weather, only really when I need it most, sometimes I can disconnect the water in fuel sensor and plug it back in and that goes away, not always.
PCM went out at 80,000, and exhaust temp sensor killed it dead at 140k and had to be towed. I don't think I'm whining to much considering the issues I've had.
I was at SEMA when they introduced this new engine and was swayed to the blue oval side by it. Like I said earlier it's the finest vehicle I have ever driven but I got places to go and need to get there, I average 141 miles per day, no time for this many problems. And to top it all off I have my doubts about the contaminated fuel problem, per the place I last bought diesel, that haven't had any other complaints.
