Hi all,

 

I'm new to this forum and new to the Boss 302 Mustang.  I just purchased a Race Red 2012 Boss 302 with 3,280 miles on it this past weekend.  It's been garage kept and according to the previous owner never driven in the rain.  The car is like brand new, mint condition.  I've driven it about 60 miles since purchase.  I took it out on a back road Saturday morning using the track key and did two controlled launches, one with traction control and one without and then ran through the gears for about a mile.  I came to a stop at a cross road, made a turn, and noticed a ticking noise coming from the engine that quickly turned into a knock.  It sounds like it's coming from the passenger side top of the engine, but not sure.  It kind of sounds like a spun bearing somewhere.  No prior warning or check engine lights and oil level was ok.  It is still under warranty until October 2016 so I had it towed to a local Ford dealer for diagnostic, but since it was Saturday afternoon, the service manager says they wouldn't be able to get to it until Monday or Tuesday.  My question is based on forum members experience, what can I expect from Ford as far as warranty goes.  Any input or suggestions for dealing with Ford will be much appreciated.  Thanks to all!

Had you checked the oil level since you purchased it?

Yes, and was full when I dropped it off at the dealer.  Dip stick showed full just before tow truck picked it up on side of road.

Curious what they find then. Ticking is pretty normal for this engine but not knocking. I see you mentioned the oil level in your original post... sorry, didn't notice ><

With few exceptions, Ford has fixed all engine problems under warranty if she is stock. If there is an aftermarket tune, not likely TK is not considered an after market tune.

Work with the dealer and the Ford rep closely.

Yes, Ford Motor Company has provided excellent warranty coverage for Boss 302 engine failures in the past. I even remember 2 examples of owners who had their Boss 302's towed to the dealer from race tracks and Ford covered their engine failures.

Can you tell us the build date, (drivers door jam sticker), and Boss 302 production number, (intake manifold plate)? Also, do you have or know of the maintenance history? Was this the original oil and filter, or was it previously serviced at a Ford Dealer? Note: Your Dealer can also print a service and warrant repair history for you for all work previously performed by Ford Dealerships. Look for prior engine repairs and any owner complaints of engine tick or noise from the engine.

Please keep up posted and be sure to ask about the "cause" of failure. Example: If they report "Spun rod bearing from lack of oil", ask "what was the cause of lack of oil?" Clearly, it was not due to low or no oil in the engine.

With only 60 miles on the clock since your purchase, it seems odd for this failure to happen after only a few WOT runs. OBTW, AdvanceTrack Sport Mode is very good for testing and learning about your Boss 302 handling characteristics.

Again good luck and please keep us posted on your progress.

Build date was 7/2011, production number is 1293.  Got a call from the dealer around lunch time today, said they definitely found fine metal  in the oil.  The service rep who called me said she believed they were going to cover the repairs under warranty, but wouldn't know for sure until they break down the engine, probably Wednesday she said.  The Boss was kept in a collectors garage for the past 4 years along with about 14 other cars and trucks.  The guys daughter drove it every once in a while and took it to a track once.  I don't know the service record, but probably wasn't serviced too often with only 3,280 miles on it.   I will email the previous owner and ask if he has service records.  Thanks!

Hi all,

 

Ford is going to cover a new engine under warranty, whew. . . and only had two months left till it expired.  Ford & Lincoln of Ocala, FL is doing the warranty work.  Spun crank and rod bearings on cylinders 3 & 7.  Service tech broke down the engine this morning and allowed me to take pics, what a mess.  I've never seen so much metal from spun bearings before.  Tech wasn't sure what caused the bearing failures, but oil sump screen was completely stopped up with metal shards and fine filings.  You can see the large amount of metal in the windage tray picture below.  I have to say that Pam and Hob in service and Micah the Tech working on my engine have been really great throughout this whole ordeal.  Ford Motor Company didn't hesitate to honor the warranty.  See pics below:

Micah says he will have new engine installed and the Boss ready to go by Wednesday  :) .  Then after break in and test runs, the Boss is getting boost.  Just ordered a JPC Paxton Street Fighter Blower Kit from Justin's Performance Center, Millersville, Maryland.  Should be fun  :yahoo: .

Whoa! Catastrophic engine failure!

Very happy to learn that you have a competent Ford Dealer Service Department. I had no doubt that FMC would cover an engine failure under warranty. Looks like you're in line for a new Boss 302 U Code engine assembly.

Keep us posted on your repair progress and method, (e.g. Long block, short block, etc.).
All the best,

Will do and thanks!  Is there a casting number or code on the block to identify it as a Boss 302 U Code engine and if so where is it located?  Thanks again!

Ford steps up again, nice.

Uncertain of a U code on the block. I believe the last 6 of the vin are etched on the block of all Fords.

Keep working with your repairing dealer's Service Manager / Director to learn of the repair method authorized by FMC. It will most likely go in one of two directions.

1. Replacement of a Short Block", (includes: block, pistons, con-rods, crankshaft assembled with all new bearings.). The original cylinder heads are re-used. But with your catostropic failure, the cams are most likely damaged/scored due to oil contamination and starvation.

2. Replacement of a "Long Block" (includes everything from oil pan to coil covers, so to speak.). This is basically a complete new engine assembly that only requires the transfer of manifolds and engine accessories, starter, A/C Compressor and Alternator, etc.

In general, warrantable repairs made by vehicle manufacturers will lean forward the method that requires the least amount of Technican labor to complete the repairs.

Insofar as your question regarding the engine ID pad location, I can tell you that during my Kooks header install, I came across a machined and etched pad under the L/Side, (Drivers Side), exhaust manifold. There is also a small machined and etched pad on the front edge of the engine valley bridge. (This one has casting date info.)

In the past, Ford has also been known for tagging engine ID info on the lower side of the block skirts and rear of block locations.

This is an interesting topic though, so please post up your findings on the correct location of the ID pad, and how we can de-code this important information.

Thank you,
302 Hi Pro

PS: IIRC, Ford does not "VIN Code" every engine block, and in the early days would only VIN Code performance engine blocks, (e.g. CJ, SCJ, Boss 2's and 9's, 427 CID engines, etc.).

Hi all,

 

Got the Boss back two days ago (Friday) with new engine installed.  It was a new long block.  Ford even threw in a detail and diamond coat paint protection package with the warranty repairs at no charge :) .  No dollars out of my pocket for the engine replacement  :thumbsup: .  Took quick look at the new engine block for casting numbers before it was installed and only found numbers on the timing chain cover, see pics below.  Didn't see a number on the engine valley bridge or near exhaust manifold area, but evidently wasn't looking closely enough.  The long block came wrapped in plastic and had an inspection tag attached with part # CR3Z-6006-D recorded on it with date 1/14/13, see pic below.  This code indicates a 2012/2013 Boss 302 and GT Ford OEM replacement part number.  I asked the tech if this was the same engine as original with forged internals and he indicated it was.  I'm satisfied with it.

 

Was driving in the rain yesterday morning (Saturday) to put a few miles on the new engine and experienced a short series of hesitations under light acceleration and then a flashing check engine light.  Flashing light only lasted a few seconds at first and then went off.  Immediately called service department at the Ford Dealer and was told not to worry about it unless it came back on, and to bring it in if it does.  About 10 miles later the check engine light flashed several times again and then stayed on.  I drove straight to the Ford dealer and they ran a diagnostic using a hand held.  Multiple misfire codes came up so the tech attached a laptop and began running a more detailed diagnostic.  I was using the track key and after a few minutes the tech asked for the black key which I didn't have with me.  He indicated that he needed to spend some time with the car using the black key to figure out what was going on, but since it was Saturday and they were about to close, not open on Sunday, and Monday was a holiday, to come back on Tuesday.  I asked if it was OK to drive and he said not any more than I had too.  So, drove it home with the check engine light still on.  I started looking into misfire causes and how to clear the check engine light.  Figured I would disconnect negative battery cable in attempt to clear the check engine light and see if it returned after driving.  When I went to disconnect the negative battery cable, it was just loosley attached to the terminal.  I removed the cable for about 5 minutes and then installed it properly and then drove the car for about 30 miles.  No more check engine light and no more misfires happy%20feet.gif .   Will call the tech on Tuesday and let him know :) .  

Thanks to all for your input.

Dale:

Take a look in your Ford Mustang Owners Manual and look up Ford's recommendated "New Engine Break-in Process". Your discovery of the loose battery connection was excellent, and I suspect it caused your intermittent CEL and hesitation issues.

There are mixed "Internet" recommendations on the break-in procedure, but I always default to the Manufacturers recommendation. After all who knows the product best?

Looking at the new engine pics, I see you also received the new style Cam Phaser Acutators, they have a larger electrical connector. This was a running production change made in late production 2012 MY Boss 302's. Also, the January 2013 date is good to see as Ford ceased Boss 302 U-Code engine long block production a few years ago. You received a new U-Code all forged internal Boss 302 Hi-Po engine.

Thank you for posting and keeping us updated. I'm happy to see all is well with your Boss 302.
All the Best,
302 Hi Pro

PS: Personnally, I would run the Silver Key for the first 500 miles.

Unfortunately, a loose cable is a common issue. You loosen the cable so you can connect and disconnect easily while working and trouble shooting the car. Then you forget to tighten.

Wish I could say I never did this..

Great to see your dealer and ford treated you so well.

Update on the check engine light. Check engine light came back on after a couple of days of occasional driving, took the Boss back to Ford and they found a technical service bulletin that indicated when the crank position sensor from the old engine is moved to the new engine that there is a rubber sleeve that has to go on the crank sensor when it's installed to keep it from vibrating. The vibration was causing the ECU to miss read crank position and was causing misfires. They corrected that and now all is well.
