RS Head Gasket

Any news on whether Ford will do a recall on the head gaskets for early RSs?

Doesnt sound like they are going to, sounds like only a small percentage of cars have an issue. I have no idea though, just my uneducated guess

Sounds like Ford will be sending a letter to all RS owners
Here's Ford's Official Warranty Fix for Focus RS Head Gasket Failure

Quote:
Ford will replace the head gasket and perform a pressure test on all affected cars. If the pressure tests fails, Ford will also replace the cylinder head. These repairs will be completed free of charge and the program will be in effect until January 31st, 2019. The program covers all Focus RS vehicles built between August 3, 2015 and July 6, 2017. There is no mileage limit on eligibility and Ford will even repair branded and salvage titled vehicles. Ford will also reimburse owners for up to four days of rental car coverage while the repairs are completed. However, the automaker will not refund owners for previously completed repairs.
Hopefully this puts an end to the issues

Yea, I don't care for the open coolant passages.....Seems like a issue w/ the bore bridge vs the 23 in the Mustang. Random issue, not just one batch of cars. Lots & lots of reading there, thanx to Alex at Stratified.

Why you always check a new head gasket for the hole pattern, only ONE hole can kill you there...............
