My wife's 2018 Transit van with the Gen1 EB gets the rattle (very faint, very brief) maybe 1 out of every 15 startups and it has 32k miles on it. I'm 100% certain the dealer will tell me they can't replicate the problem or it's a non-issue that they've never heard of but I'm going to take it to them anyways. I have less than 4k miles left on the warranty.My friend has a 17 raptor, oil change at dealers all stock, it is having chain rattle lol
Bad design. Although some will never have the issueDoes anyone have an idea as to what is the cause of the timing chain stretch. I have a 2011 F150 Ecoboost, and haven't had that issue yet. I am proactive on maintenance, and the Synthetic oil never gets past 4000 miles. Is it hard acceleration, heavy towing, too light of a chain for the job??
My 13 eco just gave up the ghost at 230kDoes anyone have an idea as to what is the cause of the timing chain stretch. I have a 2011 F150 Ecoboost, and haven't had that issue yet. I am proactive on maintenance, and the Synthetic oil never gets past 4000 miles. Is it hard acceleration, heavy towing, too light of a chain for the job, 10K oil change (diluted oil)??
you could have shipped it to us for that price, flew here to pick it up and bought beer and dinner WOWMy 13 eco just gave up the ghost at 230k
Most of the time doing a timing chain at 100 thousand miles is not unheard of....but $4,900 to do it at a dealer is robbery!

I'm betting your 3500 miles were less wear miles than the 20 mile week miles.Thank you for the info... Yeah sorry my milage is right at 57000 miles. Yes the stuck didn't drive much, maybe 20 miles a week the last year or so. In the month I have owned it I have traveled 3500 miles.
If they didn't do an oil change after the work they could have flushed a good slug of **** Into the oil pan. Yes it is a timing chain, one super long single chain. I had zero issues with mine after is was done over 50k km ago.New to the forum here. Long story short, i had the cold start rattle and loss of power while driving. Took it to the dealer i got it from (not ford, a local one) It was still covered under warranty which was good. I don't know exactly everything that was replaced but it was supposed to be a fair amount of the timing components. 2 days later i'm getting low oil pressure indication and a knock it sounds like. I parked it up instantly and am going to have it towed in the am. Any idea or heads up with what may be going on? Was the ''chain'' installed too tight? (not sure if it's actually a chain) Did they do a shitty repair possibly? I will say the battery was struggling to turn it over.
I do not fully understand everything that is entailed with this issue (other parts associated with the timing components) Any help is appreciated! I'd, at least, like to be able to speak to them intelligently about the issue.
I purchased a 2018 xlt 3.5 eco boost 44,000 miles exactly one month ago Beautiful truck all the bells and whistles first week on a cold star I heard a few sec rattle in the engine, two weeks after it’s snowed 6” guess what this damn truck fishtailed slipped slid everywhere had to put 300lbs of sand in the bed. Completely disappointed I had an 06 never had those issues. Returned to the Ford dealer hired an attorney got my money back purchase a 2019 Z71 Silverado best choice. Ford made big mistakes with these new trucks. If you’re planning to go f150 stay awayMy friend has a 17 raptor, oil change at dealers all stock, it is having chain rattle lol
