Definitely looks like an animal got in. That itself creates a huge concern. Can check the VIN through OASIS at Ford dealer service to see if it had any wiring issues, or even if it had the cam phasers replaced yet.
Hey FordTechOne, my truck is going in tomorrow for the dreaded cam phaser surgery. I'm Definitely gonna make sure they're using the (CD) phasers, my question is since the work is getting done mid April am I to early for the software update? Will I still need the update since they're doing the job? Or will I have to bring it back for the update next month. Sorry to hijack the thread, but I saw cam phasers and jumped on it.There is no “yet”, not every truck has a cam phaser issue. New software is being released next month through a customer satisfaction program to prevent future issues.
They actually have a 30 day guarantee now!Nice truck and what damage is under the hood that you have found would be easy enough to change out yourself. As long as no other chew issues can be found I say go for it. Doesn't CarMax have a seven day satisfaction guarantee?
