I understood that only 3500 GT350's and 500 "R's" were being made per Yr so that makes approx 16000 to date. Just seems like its become a topic of discussion and something worth following up on. The link I posted was just one of quite a few mainly talking about Ford not wanting to cover. Don't recall a lot of 2012/13 Boss engine issues being reported.Think of it this way: Ford's made somewhere between 25,000 and 30,000 Voodoo engines and some of them have failed. If it was any other engine in any other car, it wouldn't warrant a mention on YouTube, but the Voodoo is a great draw for views and likes and that drives revenue for content creators, so every one that these guys can find gets showcased.
Is there any indication that the oil consumption problems are more common in any particular model year?Update info....My son started his tech position at Ford dealer here in town a few weeks ago and they have replaced engines on 3 since he started, another one coming in this morning for evaluation of cust complaint of excessive oil use. His lead tech mentioned that they have reviewed 3 others in last several months or so all with this oil use complaint. All were under 25k miles The one coming in today was one of those previously reviewed but was judged to be "within spec" at that time but now cust. is indicating is worse. So something is going on. They are not allowed to open these engines up , just ship them back but seems like # 8 cyl is the problem area.
