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.

    boots blow off of the intercooler pipe when towing my camper. Boost is usuall around 20 to 25 lbs when it blows.I hve replace booth boots , Cleaned with brake cleaner, replaced boot clamps, (Some of the clamps ford sends are too large and bottom out before you get them tight), double clamps top and bottom. Now the boot itself rips.I don't have a solution yet.

    While driving on an unpaved dirt road to a ranch on a down grade, the truck started feeling weird like it wanted to cut off. When I came to a stop it shook and shut off. I started it and it shook and kept cutting off. When the vehicle is facing downhill it shows less gas on the gauge, so I though I was out of gas. We put 5 gallons and the problem continued. I got it to the ranch by not letting go of the accelerator completely. Popped the hood and started it and noticed loud air suction sound coming from the Hose From Turbo to Intake. Slid it back into place and the shaking stopped and the engine ran smooth. From the engine heat, this hose becomes soft and loose with time. I put standard hose clamps on the ends because it happened two more times. Problem solved.

    Going down the road pulling 5th wheel, heard loud noise. Truck started going slow. Had to replace small blue Ford Turbo Hose. Cost over $85. Now the emissions light stays on.

    We had the same exact problem. It hasn't been fixed because every mechanic has a different solution.

    I have towed my 30 foot trailer all over the southwest and on some pretty tough hills with no problem - Until I had to tow a long steep grade and hose popped off 3 times in less than 20 miles.
