problem #4

Sep 062017

E-150 XLT 3.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


The spark plugs and coils have been a constant problem for years. the first "fix" was a cylinder 1 spark plug and coil. After that the condensation kit was installed to fix the problem. Worked better not fixed.New recommended motor craft spark plugs were worthless and cheap, cracked over ensuing weeks. Shuttering of engine when trying to accelerate. its embarrassing and dangerous when trying to accelerate up hill. Had to pull over multiple times to reset engine. Ford dealers have been very hands off with answers. Hooked up to computer and for a $100 bucks they tell me its misfiring and they don't have solutions. Yeah thanks a lot. I could have told you that for nothing. been taking it to Goodyear to troubleshoot. have not been successful there either but they give a better effort than Ford. All new spark plugs and another coil on cylinder 1 = $240 bucks. problem still persists. been a ford man all my life but will probably look at Chevy's next round. Anybody have a solution or suggestion? I would really appreciate any feedback as I am pulling over to reset the engine again! ridiculous!

I see this problem is all over the Internet. I agree with other posts and I suspect that when someone gets killed because the engine decides to crap out at a critical point that Ford will deal with its customers seriously.

It reminds me of the gas tank explosion fiasco. So when someone sues them and a jury awards the plaintiff $500,000,000 Ford will whine that they didn't know about this problem.

I have owned over 25 Fords, but this will be my last. What a dog and this is not to mention that the gas mileage is NO WHERE near what Ford claims.
