There is many TSB and I asked my dealer if there was any that needed to be done on mine. Built date is around july 2014. They said there was no TSB to be done.

However I read a few things here and there and I was wondering if I can ask them to do it even tho I don't see the problem? My thinking is about the pedal to the floor problem that is it goes limp, I don't want to get into an accident to tell them it happened. I did floor it a few times but I don't do that regularly.

As per this I should be fine and have no problem.

I think I get confused by the amount of different problem vs TSB.

Hi!
Any TSBs or recalls for a 2014 3.5L V6 EB? Truck is a Tremor with only 3,000 miles which I'm considering buying. According to window sticker, truck was built in December, 2013 though. Thank you for help!

Well you are just going to have more issues if you go with a 2015.

Spend about 2 hours on the forum searching through the Ecoboost Problems section of the forum.

Do not like them 2015s. The only thing I do like is the fact that they're lighter...Yeah, I have spent days, not hours, searching everywhere. I just did not see many people mentioning that after whatever TSBs and what not were done, them motors ran like new again...But, I recently discovered this website and will look into the Eco Probs section. Thanks, bud!

That TSB is covered under warranty. The timing chain issues is common enough to hear about it, but not overly common. So I wouldn't stress about it, and if it does happen then have warranty repair it.
