Bwill9886 You have got to be kidding me... Do you have any other dealer options?

I know for sure I'd never go back to them.

I thankfully don't have THAT big of a leak, but I do have a minor valve cover leak at the front that I'll be having the dealer look at when I take it in for the 10k service. Hopefully I won't get any of that tomfoolery from them.

kc5rui Im taking mine back to the dealer tomorrow morning, lets see what their imagination can come up with this time....

Zillon Or just wait until the oil leaking onto the exhaust manifold catches fire and toasts the car.

Unbelievable.

So they put enough break cleaner on the engine to fill the plug wells, leak down the back, cover various components and drip on the floor.

And then not clean it off as they said they did.....

I just don't know about Ford anymore.
Screw'em. Drive the car until the engine destroys itself due to low oil and tow the POS right back to the dealer and ask them if THAT is enough proof of oil loss.

Vrod21 Any bets on what the dealer will say today?

kc5rui I'm dealing with the same dealer services and excuses as you are. I'm tracking my experiences too. http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=303246

Zillon Why do all these dealers try to pass every issue off as a non-issue?

C'mon now. That's just ridiculous.

matmatician Wow, sorry to hear about that man. :/ I've had oil retention issues in mine too (previous driver was a moron) but I hope yours gets resolved soon. Good thing you at least have a warranty...

It looked like it was coming from a plug well.
