Hi there Bill , good afternoon to you
Ok the vehicle will be ok to drive as long as the engine itself isnt running rough /misfiring as this could cause further damage
If the engine is running ok but just a lack of boost you will be fine until you can get it looked at
As this is a 2012 it could still be coveted under fords 3 year /60,000 mile warranty
I can check and clarify this for you if you wish
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue Bill please let me know
