ford will weizel dick there way out of it either way. "oh car is f6 clearly thrashed"..... "oh its been raced" any excuse they feel.

 

they told me they wouldnt warrant my fkd fog lights in my Fg when it was 2years old because I used "different globes". I said the fek there stock globes and the loan I had from them had the same problem yet they didnt beleive me. 

 

they use any excuse and you have to argue. its all bs.

No still waiting :ohnoes:

They've been busy with other sh*t or something. They said it's making a knocking sound from the top of the motor. He's waiting for the chief mechanic to look at it but might have to order a long motor. I wonder if that includes the turbo cause the bearings are probably stuffed too :verysad:

long motor is a full motor with no ancillaries connected to it (no intake/exhaust etc)

short motor is just the engine block itself with pistons, rods & crank. (no head/sump etc)

Will have to a be long motor if the knock is in the vavle train or cams etc etc.

I would have thought the turbo may have taken in a bit of the milkshake mix considering is uses oil taken from the sump.

This is a horror story for ya buddy.

Just got the car of yours dreams and paint started coming off, now this.

Everybody feels for ya mate.

Hope it all works out eventually.

Thanks everybody for your support and advice. The waiting is killing me :facepalm-hand:

They said there is an extended warranty but not sure what it covers. They have to claim through Ford then goes to Allianz. I rang the bloke who I bought it from but he wasn't aware of any extended warranty

Hi guys,

 

I have a bf f6 manual and had the same issue with the engine oil cooler letting go.

 

had the cooler replaced with another genuine one and it lasted not even 4 months before another one failed.

 

has anyone else had this problem?

 

tia :)

what was the failure point on each of the coolers that failed? if it was rust/corrosion, then you probably have an earthing issue or a moisture-in-the-wrong-place issue.

I spose oil can be conductive so if there is an earth problem it could be carrying the electricity. what keith says above is something id look for!. makes sense unless maybe someones overtightened something? not sure how they work.

Just got the word this morning Allianz are paying for complete new motor and cooling system :yahoo: except they want to flush out heater core but it's full of oil too. It's $900 to replace with a new one cause all the dash has to be removed so I said yeah I'll pay that. Wana keep this car forever. The bill to Allianz is $9,500  Man I am so relieved. It's be over 9 weeks
