Attention: Anyone Who Owns or Leases a 2014-2018 Ford Vehicle With an EcoBoost Engine that Has Experienced Oil Leaks
The attorneys at Conn Law, PC are investigating potential lawsuits against Ford Motor Company after some drivers have reported that their Ford and Lincoln vehicles equipped with 2.7L and 3.0L EcoBoost engines have exhibited repeat and unrepairable oil leaks. Ford and Lincoln drivers have complained that their EcoBoost engines have an oil leak from the oil pan RTV seal. A leak develops between aluminum engine block and the plastic oil pan.
Despite multiple repair attempts, the leaks keep coming back and cannot be fixed. Each repair attempt takes multiple days and requires that the vehicle sit overnight while the silicon dries. While the leak might stop for a while, even for man months, the leaks continue to come back. The oil pan can warp and become uneven or crack and the leak comes back. Sometimes the seal just does not hold.
Shockingly, despite the fact that the vehicle is leaking oil, no engine lights come on. Some consumers do not know that their vehicle is leaking oil until they take it in for an oil change or a regular service. In some models, the oil leak is hidden by the undercarriage shields.
In some instances, Ford has even gone as far as replacing the vehicle’s engine short block. But even this may not fix the problem.
The affected vehicle include popular models such as the Ford F-150 (2015 – 2018), the Ford Edge (2015 – 2018), and the Lincoln Continental (2017 – 2018). See below for a full list of affected vehicles.
If Ford has been unable to fix this issue on your car after a reasonable number of attempts, you may be entitled to a vehicle refund, vehicle replacement, money damages, or other compensation under State and Federal Lemon Laws.
