  1. 2013 1.0l Ecoboost engine rust. Problem?

    Cheers, will do.
  2. 2013 1.0l Ecoboost engine rust. Problem?

    I've had a reply from Ford today who are going to discuss the matter with the dealer who looked at my car last week and they've promised to get back to me by Monday at the latest with an answer. Given that the rust on the pipes is similar to yours I'd be happy to have the same resolution.

    I've sent an email to Ford and am waiting to be allocated a 'Case Manager' who will deal with my issue (i.e. probably tell me to get lost!). I'll update the thread when they get in touch.
  4. 2013 1.0l Ecoboost engine rust. Problem?

    Having read this thread I checked my engine late last week and have rust on the surface on both pipes (doesn't look to have gone deep at the moment. I took the car to my local Ford dealer for them to take a look and they said they were unaware of any issues and had never seen anything like it on an Ecoboost before. Their initial advice was to "keep an eye on it" but when I made my concern more clear the recommended rubbing the surfaces clean of rust and to apply some VHT paint to prevent further corrosion. I'll be sending an email to Ford UK to get their view on the problem, and I'll include these pics together with the link to the Danish info posted earlier. Given what appears to be a low number of cases I won't hold my breath for a positive response. The car has done 45k and has had 4 services since new.
