Hello all.
Have had my 2011 since 2012. Before that, had a 1999. Have had no problems with this truck till recently. While driving on the freeway in Columbus, Ohio I notice a slight hesitation for a split second then it's gone. It feels like a backfire but no noise. I drive about 22 miles to my part time job. During this drive this occurs once.
I have seen previous posts in this forum that suggest it could be the fuel filter or cracked spark plug or even the fuel pump. I will be taking it in soon for a remedy.
If any one else has suggestion please reply...thanks from a new guy.
2011 6 cyl 4.0, XLT extended cab, 4x4, tow package. Great truck for me!

Welcome Chuck, Glad you found us. Have fun and enjoy FRF. Have your cam sync. checked. If you have never replaced it, it may be time. If it goes it will lock up your motor.
