Hello everyone; I just recently purchased a beautiful 2005 limited 6.0L excursion and love it, but I have a peculiar problem.
Forgive me if there is a similar thread I am on my phone and couldn't find any similar occurences.
I have had my engine stall on me when the tires slip, I took it out mudding and once my tires really started spinning the motor shut off. The other times it has shut off is when I did a brake-stand and let off the brakes once the wheels start spinning faster it simply shuts off. it also seems that if i do a small wheel spin it doesn't cut out either.
Any thoughts or opinions will be very appreciated. Thank you
That's the auto preserve/save feature build into the 2005 6.0 engines
It's been driving me crazy it won't let me unleash the full power I wanted to show off what it could do and it stalled... Very embarrassing.
Is there any way I can go around this failsafe bypass it or maybe a chip will stop it?
Thank you for the solution!

I forgot to take note exactly but i know its when it starts to get closer to its redline and I can feel the tires really start spinning is when it shuts off. I haven't pushed it right to its redline though because i don't want to out too much stress on it before engine upgrades.
