  1. Squeaky brakes 2013 f150

    F150 Ecoboost Brakes
    Mine do it. I switched to a higher end Akebono pad and they were good for roughly 10K until the squealing returned. Same as you, only hear it when backing up. Brakes stop excellent otherwise. These are stoptech rotors.
  2. FR Oil Cooler?

    F150 Ecoboost Performance
    I think my post was unclear. At $700 + shipping the full race kit is expensive. I agree what the other member is selling is a steal. I am just on the fence about the difference between the FR adapter and the Improved racing one. Are there any significant differences here? Also for something this...
  3. FR Oil Cooler?

    F150 Ecoboost Performance
    My understanding is there is always a constant bleed through the sandwich adapter which keeps the cooler purged of air. As the temperature increases, the thermostat diverts more and more oil to the cooler. So it's a gradual increase in opening like a regular thermostat. I doubt the oil cooler...
  4. FR Oil Cooler?

    F150 Ecoboost Performance
    It's been there for a while and has been mentioned. The one being offered for sale is the Improved Racing sandwich adaptor. I think the full race kit sandwich adapter is either a modified stock part or designed by them. What i don't like is the price, but I'm probably just being cheap. There's...
  5. 2012 FX4 - Painting the grille gloss black

    Off-Topic
    You're always going to get chips from rocks. If you coat it with any sort of shellac or something that has a harder finish, when the plastic flexes it's going to crack. So whatever you use it needs to have some flexibility to it. I would probably use the Rustoleum spray that's formulated for...

    F150 Ecoboost Chat

  8. Another 3000 mile haul.

    F150 Ecoboost Towing
    Just curious if you have any data on oil temp with your setup. Was hoping to also see some install pics, but this thread seems to have gotten buried.
  9. Wheel and Tire Weight?

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    Do you notice a big difference when putting on lighter tires/rim combos? I went to BFG ATs and swear I took a hit on MPG.
  10. Timing Chain Rattle at Startup Repair Cost

    2nd Gen F150 Ecoboost
    The minimal amount of parts in the TSB I think run about $500-600. If you have the dealer replace everything the parts are closer to $1,000. If you want extras beyond that, water pump etc, then the price is a little higher. The job books about 9-10 hours of shop labor, so at $150-200 an hour...
  11. Timing Chain Rattle at Startup Repair Cost

    2nd Gen F150 Ecoboost
    Did mine about 72K. I replaced everything the chain touched, the secondary chains, all guides, tensioners, coolant crossover pipe (was rusting from the inside), water pump, all phasers, vct solenoids, lower radiator hose and harmonic dampener. Was about $1300 USD just in parts.
  12. Timing Chain Rattle at Startup Repair Cost

    2nd Gen F150 Ecoboost
    @ Justin - My experience was the same. No CEL. Just would randomly hear it at startup..."was that??" Then nothing for weeks. Then on another random startup, "I think I hear something".... For my truck it was never consistently doing it. I think I caught mine very early.

    can you post a parts list?
  14. Running a bigger trailer tire?

    F150 Ecoboost Towing
    Those extreme torsion movements will only be an issue if you drive the trailer up a curb or something that is a sudden drop off. Not something you typically do with a trailer in tow. On any gradual incline or decline the other tire will move with the front tire. I think you're fine if the...
  15. P0016 and diagnosing

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    The first 10 minutes or so of this guy's video walks through a diagnostic for this. If you're going through the trouble, I'd replace everything the chain touches, phasers, idler, tensioners, guides, etc. Not a job you want to do twice.

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    The check for chain stretch is to pull the passenger valve cover and scope the primary tensioner. Count the amount of teeth on the ratchet to see how far it's extended. I believe if 5-6 teeth are showing there's no more slack the tensioner can take up. Aka replace the chain. You might also pull...
  17. Torn intake assembly boot

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    Ahh.. I didn't see that it's the intake side. I'd just get a new one. The Ford retirement fund will thank you. You can try a junk yard, but IMO they have gotten so expensive on parts that it makes more sense to buy new. Especially for something like this.
  18. Torn intake assembly boot

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    If you buy a set of aftermarket pipes, most of them switch to a modular setup where the boot is attached with clamps on both ends. It's more expensive up front, but if you're concerned about being able to change it in the future, it might be a better way to go.
  19. New mods/catch can results/comments

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    I use the rubber washer and a regular plug. My rear main is leaking just like yours. It's a super slow leak. Only a few drips from what I can tell. It's never moved on the dipstick so I'm not sure if I'll address it or have the dealer do it. Taking out the transmission with the engine in the...

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    What does an 11-14 OEM windshield cost? Thanks for the info, I have a few major chips in mine that haven't spread yet, but will probably need replacing soon.
