    Default Ford Ecoboost engine blows up. Three replacement engines

    http://www.f150forum.com/f70/first-t...lew-up-208912/

    As a mechanic or "technician" I can not stop reading this thread. I am on page 33 and I can say that I would (if I had any money) pay someone to let me diagnose this vehicle just to know how it is blowing up an engine over and over again.


    And there is no way I would be as calm as the owner is.

    I'm on my 3rd ecoboost vehicle. Inconsistent performance is a word I'd use, but the power and torque are just addictive.

    Pretty strange the guy's on his 3rd engine. I'd be pissed. He's handling it way better than I would.

    I don't think it endemic to the ecoboost engine. There is something about this vehicle that is going wonky. Injector, intake, engine management issue, something. But it is weird and funky.

    His first engine lasted 47K, next one 2K, next one 4k. That is not a lot of time between engines. Clearly there is something wrong.

    ETA: and it isn't like it just died, it throws hard parts through the side of the block.
