  2. 2nd Gen F150 Ecoboost
    I have a 2015 3.5 ecoboost and have had clouds of white smoke- no black. I have no noticeable oil loss or coolant loss over the last 15k miles. The mechanic did not look at it but said that it is normal (condensation). My concern is that it does not really go away after warming up and I use top...

    I have a 2017 F150 with a 3.5 Ecoboost at 33k miles. Took it in for an oil leak and they said it was the oil pan (this is when I first became aware of the many oil pan issues after some quick searching online). The mechanic installed a new oil pan. The next day they called and said the glue...

  9. 2nd Gen F150 Ecoboost
    Every now and then, I like to rev the engine a little, but when I did it today noticed a distinct difference in noise beginning around 3,500 RPM and above. The engine sound turns more coarse and reminds me of Honda's VTEC kicking in at a predetermined RPM. I recorded this sound clip with my...
  10. 2nd Gen F150 Ecoboost
    For a while I've been researching why some 2nd gen 3.5s make a knock-like noise that resembles a diesel. Today I've come across a great video of a 2017 3.5 that sounded identical to a 2018 I filmed last year (I have the video in another thread). This guy mentions that all cam phasers were...

    Hello all. I’ve had my 3.5 eco for little over a year now. No problems at all. It’s a 2014 XLT short bed SuperCrew 4x4 with just over 100k now. Bought it from a dealer with 85k.

    I have a 16’ 3.5 eb turbo. Idk when it started or when I noticed maybe 50k-ish? I noticed a little jump in my idle while parked. Didn’t really think anything of it. Did a kam reset, no dice. So as it was getting up in miles around 80k I decided to take it to the dealership while it was still...

    Could use some advice if any of you have messed with tire size on your truck. I have a 2.5" leveling kit on but still factory 20" wheels with factory size tires. What size can you fit without rub/ modification etc using factory rims and with the 2.5" leveling on front?
