Just a couple weeks ago after 22,000 miles and a little more than a year of owning my 2018 Escape 1.5L Ecoboost the CEL came on indicating a misfire on #2 cylinder. Thinking it would be a simple coil replacement I scheduled a waiting appointment with my dealership. I was surprised to hear they found coolant leaking in #2 and I would have to bring it back the following week for a more detailed troubleshooting. Long story short they ended up pulling the engine and found areas of indentation on the block. They are going to replace the engine under warranty. The short block is on back order and they are seeing if they can get a long block instead. I found one other post with the exact same problem down to the short block back order situation on another site. In searching the internet for any other similar issues I came across this site. Does anyone have any knowledge of this problem being wide spread? What am I in for with an engine replacement?
