Question about Cars & Trucks
Overheating issue which is making the car management system go into limp mode ...check the dash when this happens...there should be a yellow icon flashing whilst it slows and lurches....if it is doing this get it to a garage where they can do OBD checks to read the error codes off the cars ecu.most likely oil sensor or temp gauge for cooling system is causing this as it seems to correct once the car/ truck is allowed to cool down.if it was fuel then this would happen almost straight away.

Could be carb but you should also look and make sure the fuel supply line is not running near the exhaust manifold or anywhere it could experience high temps as it may be boiling the gas in the line and could be "vapor locking" the fuel line. After it cools, the vapor dissipates and the unit has plenty of liquid gas then. Also check the manual fuel pump if it has one and make sure it is not faulting. The diaphragm could be getting weak and the engine heat could be causing it ti get soft and lose it's ability to draw fuel. Good Luck!

Camshaft position sensor had a recall last year and was a notorious problem. If you have the money and do not want to wait you can buy the part yourself and swap it out with a 10 mm socket. Call Ford dealer and see if you can bring it in.

i had 2 replace my sensors then it stopped the problem until it gets cold but u let het warm up and shes great. sensors are about 20-30 dollars if you want to do it your self.

From personal experience, that sounds like you might have a clogged fuel filter. a couple of bucks at an auto shop is a good investment. If that isnt the problem you need to get the fuel pressure checked, preferably on the fuel rail to check for possible leaking. A decent mechanic shop will do this if you no problem.
