I have a 2012 F150 Eco boost, I'm pretty anal about taking care of it, I use only non ethanol premium unleaded gas, I change oil every 5000 miles with Amsoil synthetic. A week ago, I was passing a car and was at full throttle, when all of a sudden, BOOM, big noise from the front, blue smoke coming out the back, and coolant coming out everywhere. Had it towed to the Ford dealer, come to find out a rod came apart inside,and put a hole in both sides of the block. It ha 43,000 miles on it, and THANK GOD for the 5 year, 60000 warranty. They ordered a new long block, turbo, and anything else the oil might have come in contact with. The service manger said they have never seen anything like this happen with an ecoboost, has anyone else had issues like this?
