Coolant leaking into engine. Known issue -- requires full engine replacement -- $7,000. This is criminal for a 4 year old car with 60,000 miles. Will be contacting Ford, among exploring other options.
- edge recall needed,
Left the dealership after just having the "Works" (oil change, inspection, tire rotation) done on my car along with the brake line recall repair and the engine started to run rough within two or three days after. Started to get engine code for P0302 second cylinder misfire. Called dealership and brought car in and they could not get code to come up after having car for two days. They said as long as the car is running fine, keep driving it.
A few days later I called back and said check engine is back on and had to drop off again. They switched around a few wires to see if they could identify a plug or coil issue. Error code did not change after a few days. Dropped off again. They kept for a couple days, finally got error code and called late in the day to say they needed car for 5 hours to run a pressure test and there was a possibility I would need a new engine depending on the test. I brought car home and drove my other vehicles for a few days to think on it. This dealer already had a Ford F250 and a Ford Fiesta in the shop waiting on new engines. Went to another local dealer for a second opinion.
Well, after their day with my car, they said that I would need a new engine. There was a crack in a gasket that caused a coolant leak into the second cylinder. Really do not know why you can't replace gasket, plugs and coils to repair engine instead of a complete engine replacement. Only good thing about the new engine is a computer update and 2 yr warranty on all parts and labor (no out of pocket) after installation. but at $7,800 plus tax it should come with lifetime free car detailing and oil changes.

Had a check engine light and some minor misfiring when first starting engine. Got the car into the shop, just a couple of hundred miles over the 60,000 mile warranty. The only way to fix is to replace the whole engine block!!! Over $7,000!!! Absolutely ridiculous!!!
