lack of power
I need help. I'm at my wit's end with my 2005 F150 5.4 supercrew 4x4 and if I could I'd get rid of it yesterday. I bought it new, it currently has 38,000Km, and the last year it has run like crap. It is totally sucking the hind tit accelerating, I won't even attempt to pass anyone on the highway or try to beat someone if a parked car or something is in my lane. I couldn't beat a chevy aveo if we were to race, seriously. And there is always a delay from stepping on the gas pedal to actually accelerating, like a hesitation. From a stop, there is a real lull in the acceleration around 30 Km, and if the engine isn't warmed up for quite a while( even in summer) the problem is magnified. It's like the truck labours and struggles to push itself. When I bought it I was just blown away by the power and how when I hit the gas the truck would go and go fast and powerfully, now I literally get mad everytime I drive it. I changed the plugs, air filter, put a bottle of that fuel system treatment in,even got new tires ...nothing is helping. I took it to the dealer numerous times before my warranty expired and they said nothing is wrong, the computer doesn't show anything, and that's how they perform. I said that it didn't drive like that new so why does it do it now? And instead of reading a computer why not do some actual mechanical troubleshooting. They also mentioned possible transmission issues but never even looked at it. I called Ford and complained and they said that the dealership says there is no problem so case closed, I argued that the problem is the fact they can't figure out the problem....I basically got the old " to bad, so sad". I am absolutely the furthest thing from a automotive mechanic, but if anyone has any tips or possible solutions PLEASE throw them at me. I'd really love it if someone out there that is knowledgable and lives in Winnipeg would just go for a drive with me and see what they think, so if you live in winnipeg and would be willing to go for a quick drive to give me an opinion it would be greatly appreciated. I think I got a total lemon, but I'm stuck with the truck now, maybe someone can help me solve the mystery and get my powerful truck back. I'm pretty much at the point with all the problems I've had with this truck that I will never buy a ford vehicle ever again, and that says something since every vehicle I've ever owned has been a Ford. Thanks.
