reading that honestly makes me sadI know the feeling man. Don't want any other car, don't want to swap, just want my car exactly the way it is, but in working condition, lol. It's gotten to the point to where I haven't even watched any GT500 videos. My excitement and passion for mustangs have just been completely shattered due to this situation. Never thought I'd be saying that, but here we are.
Nice man!! Extremely happy to hear this for you. Hoping I hear an update sooner than later for mine. :(They finally approved my motor replacement and it’s on order. Wonder why they aren’t giving owners extended warranties anymore. What’s the best way to get one?
I think it depends on the failure. A hole in the block is cut and dry. Excessive oil, noises, etc are more gray. My dealer is incredibly incompetent so I can see why they inspect.Nice man!! Extremely happy to hear this for you. Hoping I hear an update sooner than later for mine. :(
As far as all of these extended warranties, is it usually up to the company providing the warranty to deny claim or is it the Ford inspector? I'm a little confused by the process because some people are getting their engines replaced even without a Ford inspector ever showing up on-site.
Gotcha! Makes sense. Thanks for the clarification and I agree!I think it depends on the failure. A hole in the block is cut and dry. Excessive oil, noises, etc are more gray. My dealer is incredibly incompetent so I can see why they inspect.
I also assume sometimes the dealer says they are waiting for approval when Ford is actually waiting for information from the dealer.
Not to ask a stupid question..... - this would be on a 350 that uses a cartridge type filter not a spin on filter?Can't make stuff like this up.
My nightmare started almost 4 weeks ago while doing my 1st oil change. The car is a 2018 bought NEW in March of his year. It has 1659 miles on it. I followed the break-in schedule and have never tracked or raced the car. I had planned to change the oil at 1500 miles but, did a little road trip and ended up at 1659. I proceeded with the oil change and discovered the stem broke in the filter housing. The actual broke piece was lodged in the stem check valve. I went to my local dealer to get a replacement housing. The housing can not be ordered because of apparent redesign. The entire aluminum apparatus that the housing screws in to, must be replaced.
Had the car towed in. The initial part sent was wrong. The sending unit lead wouldn't reach. The second part sent wouldn't work because of something with the sending unit. I was told they were in contact with Ford about a remedy. I called Ford Friday in order to get a case opened and to also voice my concern for parts not being available. Yesterday I got a call telling me that there was a rattle in the engine and it wouldn't be covered under warranty. After I got over the initial shock, I got furious. I assured them the car ran fine when parked for the oil change. I'm taking an oil sample to them this morning.
This design is a problem.
