Reply To: Ecoboost 2.0 Engine failures


UPDATE: A friend on a Facebook Group directed me to TSB 22-2229 (Technical Service Bulletin) You can get a copy on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. These bulletins are available now due to legisltive action; previously, they were only available to the automotive industry. This TSB addresses issues with the Ford Ecoboost 2.0 engine in the 2015 – 2018 Ford Edge and the 2017 – 2019 Fusion/MKZ/Escape and MKC vehicles equipped with the 2.0L Ecoboost engine.

In the description of the issue the TSB refers to “low coolant level, white exhaust smoke and/or a runs rough condition with or without an illuminated malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) [aka, Check Engine Light or CEL]. Diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) may include P0300, P0301 – P0304, P0316, P0217, P1285 and/or P1299 stored in the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). THIS MAY BE DUE TO COOLANT INTRUSION INTO THE CYLINDER. TO CORRECT THE CONDITION, FOLLOW THE SERVICE PROCEDURE TO REPLACE THE LONG BLOCK ENGINE ASSEMBLY. (Capitals added by me for emphasis)
