 Traveling west on i-20 in tx for several hours through rain/mist/foggy conditions. exited the highway for fuel. upon reentering the highway and attempting to accelerate to speed, truck began shaking violently and did not respond to inputs from the throttle. i was able to speed up to about 45mph before the engine problem developed. luckily i had a shoulder to pull over on as i had entered the interstate ahead of a tractor-trailer combo who was doing the speed limit and approaching my rear bumper very quickly. after the engine began misfiring at about 45 mph, i could not increase speed, i was only able to slow down and pull off onto the shoulder. during the incident, the check engine light illuminated, began flashing until the vehicle came to a stop on the shoulder, then remained illuminated until the truck was restarted 5 times on the shoulder.

 Was driving on the highway during a rain event. went to accelerate to merge and the whole truck started to shudder and shake. the truck lost power. i was losing speed and everytime i tried to accelerate the truck would shake worse. coasted back into my lane, and put on the hazards to slow into the emergency lane. the truck would only idle. turned truck off, restarted truck, and it appeared fine. this is the third time this has happened. *tr

 After using cruise control for 1 hour on a 4 lane highway at 70 mph during high humidity early in the morning i try to accelerate and the motor loses all power. i had tsb 12-6-4 applied to the vehicle friday, three days ago, and though it may reduce the likelihood of this situation, it does not overcome what appears to be a design flaw with the intercooler in this ecoboost motor. this flaw allows for condensated water to be sucked into the motor and causing the misfire during hard accelerations after long periods of using cruise control in high humidity situation. the impact of losing power will be a fatal accident for a customer at some point in time if it has not already occurred. *tr
