Since the TSB is dated from early 2014, was it intended for 2013's? In other words, are 2014 EB's solid and have all of this condensation/misfire issue resolved?

There seems to be a weird noise from some of them with an explanation it is the electric Bov.

And separator effective enough to catch and trap the oil also collects and traps these damaging compounds as well, and you can never return these to the engine oil w/out severely accelerating wear. We sent off a sample of what is caught to Blackstone last week for analysis to share.


I could not reply to you via PM, but to answer your question I actually just sold my 2.0l ecoboost explorer so I have no current test vehicle.

I'd like to know what this 'latest' calibration date for the EB engine is with this TSB,

Did they ever integrate the 2011/2012s in this?

My truck had the hesitation a while back and the dealership installed the blocker plate on my cac.

i had tsb 14-0017 done last week
first they replaced the left catalytic converter
then pulled the baffles and relfashed the pcm.
then it did it again friday afternoon, puling an empty trailer (less than 1800lbs) then again with the trailer loaded later in the day (3000lbs)

so went to dealer this morning and he is ordering the next step...and unpdated cooler to revsion AD

this is last straw, if this does not fix it....i am looking a two replacements
a black plat and a ruby red kr..due in next week to my dealer

the relfash seemed to be more smooth and highway speeds the mpg was still 18 at 76
but with the trailer it dropped to 14 (cargo wedge nose single axle)

update

tech pulled the dtc codes this morning
#3 cylinder misfired numerous times, along with 4 and 5.
SOOOOO
he went to pull the #3 plug coil and the when he did the coil/spark plug tube was filled with COOLANT, yep yellow dirty coolant.
so he dried it out and pulled all six plugs. four were cracked and two had electrodes distorted and damaged, and over .040 gap

so six new plugs an done new coil pack for #3.
he then removed the charge air cooler and it had water and oil in it, plus a few bubbles,
dealer was worried about CAC, but it was an AC revision and the new one is the AD revision. i will post pics after i shrink them to fit here.

the new orings are ordered for the two coolant lines that run above the cylinder and head to the heater core, I dont think they are leaking, but i have smelled coolant the last few months but never saw a leak.
SOOOOO where the heck is the coolant coming from or came form in the spark plug tube area
he pressure checked the coolant system,
but the only wiggle was the heater hose...
is the spark plug tube sealed into a coolant passage?
if it returns i guess its a pulled head to see???

as a side note
the tech left the pop off valve wire un plugged, i didnt now it until i got home.
but on the drive..each time i let off the throttle i heard a whoosh like a burst of air..i guess that little conmector forced a mechanical bypass of boost?
