Did Ford explain what they think caused the failures leading to replacement (just curious) ?

Help us help you - what is your year, engine, drivetrain, trim and SYNC version?

I just want to add that any claims or theories on the longevity of any engine in an online forum that do not have data to back them up are purely anecdotal. You may see a few instances based on someone's experience but this is rarely indicative of the overall product.


Making decisions based on anecdotal evidence has definitely been shown to lead to bad decisions more often than not. Consider two people discussing their spouses and one saying well, if he said this then he is definitely going to do that because that is what mine did. Leave that up to the professionals and research the reality instead of listening to opinions based on heavy bias.


I am not accusing anyone of being intentionally misleading but without facts, there is no way to prove some of the claims about the 1.6 vs 2.0 that I have seen on this forum. ALL engines have problems. As someone else pointed out, modern (keyword being modern) engines are designed more and more to run at maximum efficiency as much as possible. This is a good thing since the engine is DESIGNED to run that way. Long term testing has most definitely taken place and any problems in the real world will most likely be due to an implementation error vs an integral design problem.


Don't sweat this stuff, seriously.

fraleywp,

Have you considered an air/oil separator (AKA Catch Can)? I have a 2014 Titanium 1.6 13,000 miles. No problems yet (other than battery replacement). I intend to keep this car forever... I'm 73 years old, so "forever" is probably 10-12 years. Have read lots of discussions of OCC, but can't decide if they're really worthwhile.

I drove a 2014 se 1.6 hard daily until 90K and it held up great with on time service. 2013 was a rough year for the 1.6
Expect the 1.6 to be replaced for 2017

I run one on my Mustang (supercharged) and one on my Sorento (turbocharged).
I catch quite a bit of oil in each one. I think it's better to have the oil vapors condense in the can rather than bake onto the intake valves.

I just picked up a 2013 1.6 with 161k miles on it. I have already put 2k miles on it and haven't had any concerns about reliability or it not lasting another 150k miles. I do all of my own maintenance and major repairs myself, and I came from driving a VW TDI for many years so I am very familiar to the concept of turbocharged and direct injected engines. Wouldn't drive anything else.
