I'll be interested in hearing what the dealer contributes the blow out too. Since a similar combo was on my radar for a future purchase. Like the other post, at least it is under warranty.

It's amazing that Fords go to engine for nearly 10 million trucks and countless high performance cars would be so problematic. Mine is at 89000, been well cared for but used appropriately, runs like a sewing machine.

Yes, I am glad it is covered by the factory warranty. It definitely concerns me, however nothing coming up on the internet to indicate it is in any way common. I will be paranoid for some time to be sure though.

So, I finally got my truck back yesterday. The root cause of the issue was a spun rod bearing. The dealer said they have never seen this happen. They ended up replacing it with a short block.

I hope this was really just a fluke and that there are no further issues related to the engine in this truck.

I hope so, too. That's an odd one. Hopefully it was just a case where that one got messed up somewhere in production.

I had never considered that before, but they DO sound like sewing machines when the phasers go, haha.

Just lost my motor in my 2016 2.7 Ecoboost 4X4 crew. 16,000 miles. Truck has been flawless until yesterday. Noticed a slight ticking sound when I started it. I checked my oil and all was fine. Sounded like it was coming from the left cylinder head. Made it 1/2 hour cruising at 75 mph on the highway before it began making loud sounds and running rough. Pulled it off the highway and stopped in a parking lot. No engine lights or warnings....oil pressure and coolant temps were normal. Shut it off because the sounds coming from the engine were so loud I knew it was about to Chernobyl. Called Ford Roadside assistance and they had it towed to my dealer. I'll post what my dealer discovers once he informs me.

Looking at your previous posts it looks like you were running a tune on it. Did you flash it back to stock before having it hauled in?

Good luck and keep us posted on what you find out.

Really? Sounds like you don't have any idea on what is going on yet.
