Ford Ecoboost Warning Part 2 My Findings

Post by makuloco2000 » Fri May 30, 2014 3:43 pm

As promised here is the follow up with my findings and the fix for the 2.0l Ecoboost I mentioned in the previous video. What it came down to was excessive coking on the backside of the intake valves and by doing a simple 5 minute cleaning the problem was eliminated. Now whether there is also a valve stem seal leak on #2 is yet to be determined.

In conclusion there is a definite issue with carbon and oil coking on the intake valves that needs to be addressed sooner than later by Ford with some kind of a cleaning method. As mentioned in the video if there is anything substantial that comes down the pipe from Ford on how to resolve this issue in the long term I will be sure to let all you Ecoboost owner know.

Have you noticed less smoke when using the synthetic blend oil over full synthetic? Its quite noticeable with my SHO. Full synthetic the car smokes while in traffic. Not a lot but it does seem like more so than when using the blend. My pipe seems to look dryer too. Less carbon since I changed back to the blend last year. I don't have to clean the pipes in the back.

I tend to change my oil at 5k miles or less so the full synthetic is sort of a waste of money IMHO. My truck has been on a blend for 15 years and has 190k miles on it and still runs like new. Nice and smooth. 1998 Ranger with the 4 liter V6. I have had it since October 1997.

I have always used the blend so I can not say for sure but I agree the synthetic is a waste of money and I just change mine every 2500-3k miles since we get free oil here so it's just a $3.50 oil filter each time.
