A severe lack of power may develop because the hose from the turbocharger to the intake manifold can come loose, resulting in loss of boost pressure to the engine.

    HOSE HAS BLOWN OFF TWICE IN LAST MONTH - SOUNDS LIKE EXPLOSION WHEN THIS HAPPENS. ALSO COULD BE VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM IN MIDDLE OF BIG CITY TRAFFIC WITH A NERVOUS PERSON IN THE CAR BESIDE YOU.

    Turbo hose blew off while pulling 5th wheel trailer and going up hill and transmission down shifted. Dealer told me the hose did not need to be replaced. On current trip from Northern Indiana to Florida the hose blew off 5 times causing dangerous repair along busy highway. Just replaced hose while in Ocala area. Not happy with Ford avoiding a fix for this problem.

    Pulling a fifth-wheel into the Santa Cruz mountains. Hose blew off. Lost substantial power. I didn't know why. Luckily my son-in-law was with me and has had the same trouble with his 2003. His has blown 4 times.

    Just now driving at 60 miles per hour
    Turbo booster hose blew off losing power
    This just after having the truck serviced at Riverhead
    Ford for A EGR Cooler problem which they first cleaned then decided it had to be replaced
    Then charged us 400.00 for the cleaning of an item they replaced because they said cleaning components is not covered under the warrantee.
