No, because that never happened.

Not surprising when you buy a used vehicle with poor maintenance history. I’m surprised they’re covering it at all.
Talking out your ass as usual I see. Wife's car was brought new and serviced at the dealer. So why are you suprised? I thought you knew all. Go talk out your ass some more.

And yes, multiple guys on here got the 3.5L HO replaced out of warranty- or at least had a good portion of it paid for.

a rebuild?? is that really the best option?

it always takes 3 times longer and 2x more money than predicted, and the machine shops are all catching up on race car stuff...

sorry to be a negative nancy, but a takeout, or crate engine would probably be a lot quicker and cheaper as well...

Sir, I agree.

However after the math...

$5700 engine
$1500 core
$484 shipping
$336 tax

$8020

This is for a new engine and THEN to put the engine in is $2500, So I'm at $10,5 for the engine installed vs the shop doing everything for $6500 with all the fixings.

I will be throwing cash at new turbos as well. And if I get my way... I will be doing new suspension all the way around while shes down.

No they didn’t. There was never such a program and there were never any pattern engine failures. In my years at dealers every single 3.5 engine failure was one of 2 root causes:

A. Run low on oil
B. Poorly maintained/extended oil change intervals

You’re a useless troll on your best day, you clearly have nothing to contribute to this thread. Go waste space somewhere else.

Ford just paid 2/3rds of a good friends short block at 83K (3k out of the extended warranty), 2000 miles after cam phasers, so never say never...

he still had to pay $5k but it wasnt nearly $16K... for a short block....
