Wow Thanks that was a surprise after most of these dick head posts. Yes it in fact has happened and 13 k to put in new reman engine. This is my 5 th ecoboost and yes Iím not happy but it happens. The weather at the time was -18f with -55 wind chill the dealer said there was codes but never told me or knew what they were he was the service writer.

I'm curious into the history as well. Was there anything you had done to the truck at the dealer in those 91k miles or maybe you did yourself? Did you use some type of additive in the gas? Did you have a tune? Were you towing at the time? Lift/tires?

I think what chimmike was getting at, was there any pre-existing condition prior to saying the motor blew at 91k miles?

No mods, stock 20Ē wheels, no lift kit unfortunately the service writer could not tell me what codes were present. Possibly jumped timing ? The truck always was maintained at the Ford dealer oil changed as per maintenance manual. Iíve had quite a few 3.5 ecoboost trucks this is the first major problem Iíve had, but this is a big one. This truck has a UPR mega catch can on it thatís it.

hey, I'm curious, because you mention a 2014 in this post, yet you've got another post (which I linked to) where you're looking for a forscan for a 2018 F150.

Call me skeptical, because I've been on the internet long enough to see just about every type of troll attempt possible.

And what's the risk of not emptying it and it freezing and blocking the PCV flow?
Reason I won't run one, look like a mess to deal with in the colder weather....

In cold temps it needs to be emptied weekly and yes lots of condensation and oil. In regular weather I empty every 2 weeks and a lot of mixed oil comes out. I also have run UPR cans on every ecoboost I have owned and would not be without one. Even on my 18
