    A little help...

    So left for a trip yesterday and about 30 miles before we arrived started getting a sound like a hiccup when accelerating from the driver side. I have had an issue at start up for awhile that sounds like an air compressor filling up. But that goes away after about a mile or so. Now when I accelerate heavy the "hiccup" sound is there and the front end bucks. No codes. No loose hoses. No clue

    Sounds like the classic stutter, its easier if you search ecoboost stutter you should find others with the same issue but to summarize, drill the weep hole and check and swap plugs

    It's always helpful to provide some vehicle related info (usually you insert this in the signature).
    I'm guessing you have a 2011-12. If so, your vacuum pump is on the fritz. There has been a recall for this.
    As for the hicup, it could be related to the vacuum pump, or possibly a bad blow off valve on the driver side turbo.

    Get in touch with your local dealer and provide them your VIN, so that they can check for recalls.

    Plugs, weep hole, check out the BoV's. Likely one of those as the issue in a nutshell.

    I replaced my turbo myself took me the weekend but i did it, I also found a website that sell's O.E. parts super cheap so that saved me from going to the dealer and paying retail. check out ford parts prime if you end up doing your own work. good luck you can do it!

    If you decide to do it yourself I might sell my turbos that I took off my 2011, had 112K on them.

    Yet again with the fordpartsprime vendor? I’ll say it again, nobody loves their parts source enough to mention them in virtually half of the posts they’ve made on the forum. What is your connection to this company? @Elmore328

    Oh I think it’s got to be more than just a deleted post for a plug. That’s ban,
