Reply To: Ecoboost 2.0 Engine failures


1) Please re-read my original post. The 95,000 miles comment was in regard to a different owner with a different version engine.
2) Pressure tested the cooling system. No leaks. Water pump has no leaks.
3) You mentioned faulty head gasket which is interesting. After much research I found that this is a *known issue* with the Ecoboost 2.0 engine FOR THE FOLLOWING REASON. The engine has grooves scored between the cylinders in an ill conceived attempt to increase cooling. This allows coolant to degrade the head gasket and intrude into cylinder(s) leading to total engine failure. Ford addressed this issue with a redisign around 2020 or 2021. Just watch this YouTube video:

Thanks for your input…
