Surging 6.0 engine at low speeds

I have a 05 6.0 with manual transmission,the truck surges at low speed and
in low gear, around 1750rpm. This has been addressed with ford and they
state it is being worked on. There does not seem to be a date when this
problem will be fixed. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Surging 6.0 engine at low speeds

we have a 05, 6.0 manual trans. it goes to bucking in 1st,2nd, and sometime 3rd. mainly between 1800 and 2000 rpms. we bought it april 1st and the 3rd week in april is when it started and it's getting worse. Now FORD is saying that it need to recalibrate it and that's being done in canada and their not sure how long that will take. they told us that this is a nation wide problem with the trucks.

Is this problem only with the manual trans? I have an automatic and haven't experienced this.

From what I've been told is that the problem that they are having is with the manual trans. The good news is that Ford bought back our truck and we now have a 2006 manual trans and it has been running great. Detroit wanted our truck because even though it would buck and jump it got 21 MPG. They want to figure out why and how it was getting that!
