    A Facebook friend directed me to a Ford Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) regarding the coolant consumption and misfires/failures with the Ecoboost 2.0L engines sold with 2017 – 2020 (est) vehicles. the Ford TSB #22-2229 clearly directs techs to inspect cylinder heads of these engines for coolant intrusion.
    Recommended fix is engine replacement. (my paraphrase of the verbiage)

    Ford has officially admitted to being aware of this issue since at least June 2022. They have avoided taking any responsibility for the almost inevitable total failure of the Ecoboost 2.0L engines provided from around 2017 to around 2020. Ford redesigned this engine in 2017 using an ill conceived design that has proven to fail and refuses to be responsible for their grievous engineering error. This defacto denial of responsibility by Ford is outrageous.


    Since all Ford engines have siamesed cylinder walls, overheating is bound to eventually have an effect. Why they make engines like this is beyond me, other than it’s probably a few dollars savings in the aluminum for each casting and a 2 or 3 inch shorter block.
