Yes, I too beat the piss out of my stock (lol at your "intake" and "mods") domestic econobox like a boy racer, then defraud Ford on a warranty claim and post to the community expecting praise. Yes, you certainly did stick it to the man GR34TWHI73N0RTH all while being the coolest kid on the block, I'm sure. All of us are just 'hating' on you because we're jealous we don't get a new engine or have some crappy looking white wheels.

thanks for the back up!

I drive it a lot and its an insanely fun car to drive. I don't drive conservatively by any sense, but I'm not beating on of the car. I can count on one hand how many times I've gone over 5K and have never over revved (Ford even checked). I even broke in the car just like i was told too. This was suppose to be a Whoo Ford is awesome, and gave me a brand new engine post( with just a little hassle and lag) instead of a refurbished one(which i though they were going to do). I've heard bad things about Ford and warranty procedure before; So i was happy that they took care me. People are going to get mad, and i cant do anything about them. If i did something to cause the failure Ford would have found it, There not idiots. I thought Ford fan boys would have a little more faith in their car company.

But mp223 I'm glad you think "the coolest kid on the block" a 23 year old student with minimal mechanical skill and those crappy white wheels can defraud a 100+ year old multinational multibillion dollar company. I didn't know i had those skills but apparently you think i do...Thanks

You can find a compliment in anything. That's sweet.





And no this isn't sarcasm.

I'm glad the boys in blue stood up on there word and fixed your car like they should after all it's not like you ran it at 6500 rpm in 5th gear for 500 miles non stop.

I would just like to know what they said was the cause so I can keep a watch out on mine. The dealer changes the oil rotate tires and car wash every 5,000 miles free package even when that is up there still as cheap as anywhere else.
Just turned 46,000 only thing done was strut caps and clutch pack due to slipping not shutter never had that until update.

When I worked for a dealer we had a lady drive her car from New York to Florida came in engine light on and knocking checked oil a ball of goo on tip never changed oil in 39,000 miles yet service manger would do it under warranty if she could show just three oil change receipts so I rebuilt it for 1600.00 she could have gotten a used one cheaper.

So then GR34TWHI73N0RTH, what caused the issue? Why so secretive about it? I can't imagine Ford would make you sign a NDA.

They never found out the cause i supplied a whole oil change history and everything. they chalked it up to faulty parts. If they found a cause i was never informed. They were shady at first until they dissembled the engine, then they became my best friend lol. So I'm not sure
