I would not be too concerned with ecoboost problems. Ford will have them sorted out soon. Not a Ford fan but, this a minor problem. Jim

The NO response from Ford is the same I am receiving from Dodge. I received a recall from Dodge on the drive shaft. That was 2 months ago I contacted the dealer at that time and was told parts not available but would be notified; still no parts available. I asked what could happen and was told the drive train could come undone and I would be stranded. Can one imagine towing the AS if this happens? I haven't heard of any $ hungry lawyers yet. NO, mine has NOT failed yet.

Not minor when you are accelerating on the entrance ramp of the interstate to match traffic to fit into the flow, even worse when you are towing. I had the problem once on a foggy day; luckily I was not towing the trailer. I have not had the issue since. I asked about and I was told the computer did not throw a code which is the standard answer the modern mechanic now has. Truck has performed perfect except for this one instance. I do hope Ford is forced into a recall and they have to correct this issue.

As said before in the last Ecoboost thread, Ford will install a deflector on the CAC which will fix the issue with rain and moisture. Living in SW Colorado with a drought, my dealer was resistant to make the fix. However after insisting that it be done because I do travel to wet states, they installed under warranty. I have had no problems since.

The dealer is replacing the intercooler and adding a deflector on my EB. The parts arrive tomorrow. Hopefully that will clear up the issue.

Ford has a lot riding on these EchoBoost engines. I am sure they will find a fix. I have had mine (F150) for about 1000 miles. No problems yet and I have not towed as yet.

Toyota did me wrong on the original side mirrors. They were a terrible flimsy design, but they would never admit it. After replacing the mirrors 4 times, Toyota would not rplace them any more, even though I have 67,000 miles and 4 years left on an extended warranty which was a waste of money and isn't worth the paper it is written on.
The mirrors would become loose in just a few weeks and wiggle around like a bobble head doll and you couldn't see anything. This may be the result of folding them to fit big truck into little shed, but what's the point of folding mirrors if you can't fold them? After Toyota kicked me to the curb I bought aftermarket trailer towing mirrors after market formless than half the Toyota price. They have been on a year and a half and do not wiggle yet. Maybe the trailer towing mirrors are less susceptible to getting loose because they have 2 support arms instead of 1 support arm like the original mirrors? The original mirrors are plastic junk with no way to tighten them when they get loose. Toyota and the dealership said they had never had this complaint before. I think they are lying. Out of curiosity I walked up to a random Tundra parked in a parking lot somewhere and wiggled the mirror. It was loose.
In my mind no warranty is worth the paper it is written on and all dealers and manufacturers will lie, lie, and deny to keep from spending money. I hope I never have to buy a new truck because I don't trust any dealer or manufacturer and would not know what to buy.

graysailor: Ford has a fix, read previous post for details. If your F150 is new (1000 miles) it came with the fix incorporated already.

m hony: you should have bought a F150 Ecoboost (subject of this thread). You would not be having mirror problems.

New parts installed - absolutely no hassle with the dealer.

I attempted a number of quick accelerations. No problems - but it was dry today, so not a very useful test.

I do note that there is no audible 'whistle' when letting up on the accelerator as there was prior to the repair. This whistle is something that had developed over the last 6 months or so.

Just curious if those with towing issues if you were in tow haul mode? It appears for example that in tow haul mode in over drive (6th gear) the RPM are about 500 higher then when not in tow haul mode. The point being that when using tow haul mode the engine and tranny are not searching for the proper gear and RPM's.

in my trying to case i was in tow/haul trying to enter a highway from a rest stop. my first thought was that the transmission was not in the correct gear. i selected manual shift and it made no difference.
