  1. Flashing CEL on my 2017 Mustang. AGAIN!

    You bought a car with a Roush Supercharger...that means your factory warranty is void; any powertrain warranty you have left is through the dealer or Roush. It has nothing to do with Ford; they don't sell '15+ Supercharged Mustangs from the factory. For that reason, there is no reason that...
  2. Collision Detection Not Available/AdvanceTrac Warning/ABS

    Obviously you missed the part regarding the fact that this vehicle is modified with a Whipple Supercharger kit. As stated later in the post, this particular ground was damaged when the Whipple airbox was installed. Stop trying to blame the manufacturer for damage caused by aftermarket...
  3. Damage from Cold and High Revs

    I think you are making yourself paranoid. When Ford designs these engines they are torture tested under all conditions before they are even released as pre-production prototypes: "Besides meeting the performance goals the Coyote had to pass all of Ford's standard durability tests. These dyno...
  4. My evaporator hasn't failed yet but... HELP

    An evaporator is either defective or it's not. It's a simple heat exchanger; they don't magically develop a defect after 3 years and fail. If it was defective, it would have had a leak by now.
  5. Front end clunk-clunk

    People - Lbdyll answered the question. The concern you are experiencing is the tires scrubbing on the pavement surface. High performance tires are not designed for low temperatures. When the ambient temp is low and the tires are cold, they will skip/scrub the pavement, especially when the...
  6. P0308 - Misfire in Cylinder 8

    Glad to hear they took care of you. The IMRC (Intake Manifold Runner Control) has been a well documented issue; in fact, Ford issues a Special Service Message (SSM) to dealers to inspect for said issue when diagnosing misfires on 5.0 S550s.
  7. Mis-fire Cylinders - complete left bank

    WRONG. If you change the engine calibration, you are now responsible for any powertrain issues that occurs afterward. The manufacturer cannot possibly account for the changes that were made, and therefore it is YOUR responsibility to prove that YOUR modifications did not cause the failure...
  8. under hood temp

    It's normal for any vehicle to have high underhood temps after being driven; there is an immense amount of heat generated by the engine and exhaust. As someone else mentioned, wait 15 minutes before even touching anything under the hood. The oil level won't be accurate until at least 15...
  9. HELP! Mt82 warranty issues

    There is no way to determine if a synchro issue is the result of a defect or abuse until the transmission is torn down for analysis. Typically, the dealer will have the customer sign a form that states that if the issue is warrantable it's covered, and if the issue is abuse/damage the customer...
  10. Brake softness?

    Ford recommends using a pressure bleeder to ensure that all air is removed from the brake system after service. Sometimes traditional vacuum/manual bleed procedures cannot extract all air, especially if the system ingested air during the brake fluid change. If the brake fluid reservoir went...
  11. Weak seat motors?

    It has nothing to do with a "weak" or "inferior" motor and everything to do with you sitting in the seat and expecting it to move as if it's empty. If the seat moves to the correct position, you have nothing to complain about. The seat motors are designed to move with the weight of an...
  12. 15 GT vs Golf R

    You have slicks; you will destroy him.
  13. WARRANTY BEWARE

    Despite what some people will claim on here, the dealer and Ford are not out to get you. If you have a paint issue, they're not going to check for a tune. If the car hasn't been damaged/repainted, it should be covered. By the same token, don't expect the dealer or Ford to cover a powertrain...
  14. Evaporator Core Failure

    There are no grounds for a class action lawsuit when a failure occurs under warranty and is covered by the manufacturer. If a specific failure occurs consistently on a significant amount of vehicles that are out of warranty and the customers pays for the repairs, then a class action lawsuit can...
  15. Is turn signal not working covered by warranty?

    The fact that you inquire assumes that you have modifications.... Please elaborate
  16. Cooling fan noise / squeak

    It's normal fan motor brush noise for the model of Bosch fans used...it does not affect the performance, durability, or long term performance of the system. In other words, it's nothing to worry about.
  17. Vibration between 50 & 70 mph

    Sounds like you need to find a new dealer. A dealer that has invested in the equipment recommended by the manufacturer to perform an accurate diagnosis. Ford released an SSM (Special Service Message) for this issue quite a while ago. Engineering found that the issue was attributed to...
  18. Parasitic load test won't work

    Any time you put your ammeter (DVOM/multimeter) in series with a circuit, the current that the component is drawing will pass through your ammeter. For this reason, it's critical to remember that your ammeter has a built-in fuse of 10 Amps. If you install it inline with a component that is...
  19. (unconfirmed) Source of AC Evap Failures Possibly Identified [POLL]

    So you're talking about 45 "calculated" failures out of 241,625 Mustangs sold from the 2015 to 2017 model year. That's a failure rate of less than 0.0002% of vehicles produced. That is why your dealer has had no knowledge/complaints of the issue. The reason you see it on here is because the...
  20. VMP Supercharged S550 New Best 9.58 @ 144 MPH

    Stock halfshaft lasted into the 9's, impressive!
