Not sure if this helps but, my '01 supercrew will freeze you out on the hottest day 105 deg F, midwest humidity. Unless significant changes were made between '01 and '04 I think(know) your dealer is full of **it.
When you say Ford told you, "..." Do you mean the dealer where you bought the truck or Ford Motor Company (Dierborn, MI)? Because, the dealer is NOT a Ford representative. All Ford dealers are independent reps, their "quality is job one" service techs are NOT Ford employees. Unfortunately I learned this fact too late.
What to do? Unfortuately for me my truck was out of warranty when I learned that the dealer is not a Ford employee. My personal problem was with the vehicle tracking poorly/eating front tires. After three years my dealer could not fix the problem. One visit to a local shop that preformed a proper tire alignment and the problem was solved. Bit the bullet, take the truck to a reputable indy shop and have them document the issues.
