Tory Johnson, GMA Workplace Contributor, discusses work-from-home jobs, such as JustAnswer in which verified Experts answer people’s questions. AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on. Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer.
I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there. I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time.
Auto shows, like NAIAS, typically showcase the latest metal in fancy displays bathed in brilliant lights and staffed with beautiful spokesmodels. The front of the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 prior to the start of the teardown in front of an estimated audience of more than 1,000 people at the 2011 Detroit auto show. A production EcoBoost V-6 engine, serial number 448AA, was randomly selected off the assembly line at Ford’s Cleveland engine plant.
The engine was then shipped to Ford's Kansas City truck plant and installed in an F-150 4X4 crew-cab pickup. The front engine cover, intake manifold and heads are removed from the engine to expose the valvetrain.
From there, the truck was driven across the country to Homestead Miami Speedway, where it was hooked up to a trailer carrying two of Richard Petty’s Ford Fusion racecars, a load of 11,300 pounds, and run continuously around the track for 24 hours, averaging 82 mph and covering 1,607 miles. McCarthy said the engine’s fuel economy was so good compared with his previous V-8 engines that he was able to skip two planned fuel stops during the Baja event, which helped him win the class. After Baja, the thoroughly thrashed and raced engine was shipped back to Ford headquarters in Dearborn, Mich., and dyno-tested once again. A leakdown test was performed to measure how well the engine’s 24 intake and exhaust valves and piston rings were still able to seal the cylinders.
After the dyno, engine 448AA, which had never been opened or inspected, was shipped to the Detroit auto show where, on Saturday, it was torn down for inspection in front of a live audience of more than a thousand Ford engine enthusiasts and their families.
The teardown was narrated for the audience by Jim Mazuchowski, Ford’s chief engineer for V-6 engines. The engine's four camshafts - two per cylinder bank to control intake and exhaust valve timing.
As they went, the engine parts were laid out on three huge tables so that when the tear-down was complete, the engineers and the audience could take a closer look. The timing chain, which controls valve timing and synchronizes engine operation, was still within normal tolerances. We didn’t get a photo of the valves, but they had carbon deposits similar to that found (and seen in pictures) on piston combustion surfaces. Visual inspection of the cylinder heads, twin turbos, piston crowns, ring lands, rod bearings and cylinder bores by the engineers and your correspondent showed no major signs of anomalous wear after 163,000 miles of endurance testing.
Engineer Wei said each and every part would be taken back to Ford’s labs to be checked with scales, cameras, lasers, micrometers and other measuring tools to get the final details on the rich, full life of EcoBoost V-6 engine 448AA. 13% compression loss in one cylinder is not good, and there looks to be a moderate amount of carbon on those pistons. Love this test and the idea from Ford - it shows incredible confidence in their engineering department and it paid off. For the individuals that think 13% is a big problem for what this engine has seen need to get a little training in the matter.


Not for arguments sake but as a point of proof, Toyota was the ONLY manufacturer to adopt SAE J2807 towing standards, and the EPA postings they print are the SAME trucks that tow 10400 pounds. I use a block heater starting around 0 F and let the engine slowly warm up for a minumum of 5 minutes. I spent a few minutes at the show looking at the parts, they all looked pretty good for the amount of testing they've been through. As you guys may remember running the Baja 1000 is the equivalent of 200,000 - 300,000 miles of street testing in one race!
I would much rather have the simple V8 even with less hp than all the complex and potential problems with turbos!!!!
Looks to me that Ford would warranty this even and even the others for 150,000 if they are so confident!! Ford propaganda !We all know only a Toyota product goes 8000 miles without any repairs,my 2010 Toytoa is now at 19,000 with only a bottom end knocking rod fix at Toyota !
300 hrs at a high throttle with temperature shocks that no motor will ever see if very impressive. And if you have to take your brand new truck in at 19,000 miles because you already have a knock is NOT a good thing, that's bad.
For all you nay sayers out there, I also have a 1997 Taurus with the Duratec DOHC engine with 160,000 miles, which I bought new.
Perhaps not, but this point is moot, since no other manufacturer has the balls to do such things to a brand new engine - or hell, even a current one.
Sure, but what incentive did they have to produce something new when the ol' 5.4 consistently outsold everything else on the road?
The only real world fact that I find hilarious is looking at all the haters that are obviously Chevy guys complaining on how the EcoBoost is too complicated and just trying to be a fake V-8. Remove some power steering fluid from the reservoir by disconnecting the fluid return line hose at the reservoir. On the 2.9L engine loosen the adjusting nut and the slider bolts on the pump support to slacken belt tension.
On the 4.0L engine, slacken belt tension by lifting the tensioner pulley in a clockwise direction. Install the pulley removal tool and install the power steering pump pulley to the power steering pump. On the 4.0L while lifting the tensioner pulley in a clockwise direction, slide the belt under the tensioner pulley and lower the pulley to the belt. Continue to crank the engine and rotate the steering wheel about 30° to either side of center.
Check the fitting to determine whether the leak is between the tube and tube nut or between the tube nut and pump outlet. If the leak is between the tube nut and pump outlet check to be sure the nut is tightened to 30-40 ft.
To aid in the assembly of the new plastic seal washer, a tapered shaft may be required to stretch the washer so that it may be slipped over the tube nut threads. If the rubber O-ring is damaged it cannot be serviced and the hose assembly will have to be replaced.
The quick connect fitting may disengage if not fully assembled, if the snapring is missing or if the tube nut or hose end is not machined properly.
They’re about as far as you can get from the garages that all cars and trucks will eventually require a visit to for service and maintenance.
The dual-overhead-cam power plant was shipped to dynamometer cell 36B in the Ford Dearborn engine labs and run for 300 hours to replicate the equivalent of 150,000 customer miles, including repeated temperature-shock runs when the engine was cooled to minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit and then heated to 235 degrees. It was found to produce 364 horsepower and 420 pounds-feet of torque, just one horsepower less than its rating and exactly the same output as its nominal torque rating, according to Ford. One cylinder was found to have a cautionary 13 percent air loss past the combustion chamber’s seals, while all other cylinders were acceptable with single digits of air leakage.
Powertrain engineer Phil Fabien explained the advantages of things like turbocharging, direct fuel injection and twin independent variable cam timing while engine technicians Chris Brown on the right bank and Chris Rahill on the left bank took the engine apart using a pair of air wrenches and hand tools.
With age, a timing belt loses tension, and a hydraulically operated timing chain tensioner is used to compensate for slack. Maybe a little heavy one the carbon buildup, but they were also using conventional oil as opposed to synthetic.


Now i REALLY wonder why they STILL aren't forthcoming with economy ratings on the truck. As reported on this site, SAE procedures have not been finalized but Ford is ready for it regardless.
Would any of you guys pump -20F Fluid into your engine after running it at WOT until it was red hot? So believe it or not this EcoBoost engine has anywhere from 370,000 to 470,000 miles on it! Meaning that I would prefer to buy a Ford over anything else comparable unless the competition offered something vastly superior and or more proven and even then I would have a hard time not buying a Ford. And for those of you complaining about how Ford advertises mileage for a certain axle ratio, step back and see how your favorite manufacturer advertises its mileage - you may be surprised at the asterisks and fine print you find. Ford introduced the EcoBoost at a great time - CAFE standards will soon require mileage improvements in half-tons.
We want to hear your opinions and thoughts, but please only comment about the specified topic in the blog post. Remove the drive belt from under the tensioner pulley and slowly lower the pulley to its stop.

But for an hour Saturday, Ford turned part of its spotless blue and white display space inside Detroit’s Cobo Hall into a service bay for the last chapter of the F-150 EcoBoost torture test. I'd be curious to hear the measurements on turbo shaft play, as the turbo is usually one of the first major components to require replacement.
I think it should be pointed out again that the carbon build up probably got much worse during the rally. In the report to include compression testing, turbo condition (measurements on turbo shaft play) , valve wear, etc.
The carbon build-up on the pistons is also amazing showing how well the fuel is mixed with the direct port injection.
People complaining about the carbon spots on the pistons, after 150K+ miles on it, I think they are damn clean IMHO. Besides, what does it matter - Ford did these tests to show the vulnerabilities of their new engine (of which there are few), and what does that tell me? Chrome Data makes no guarantee or warranty, either expressed or implied, including without limitation any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, with respect to the data presented here.
You ahve to admit, and by doing so doesn;t mean no one else makes a good truck, just means Ford made a good drivetrain in their truck.
To test for positive engagement the system should be properly filled, the engine started and the steering wheel turned from stop to stop. When I tear down turbo engines the amount of carbon build up is like a layer of paint on the pistons.
They should make a lower set for those folks that would like to see an increase in FE at the expense of a little towing capability.
Please note that if you have a subscription service you still need to to rate OK SERVICE, GOOD SERVICE OR EXCELLENT SERVICE , however you are not charged again. I also think that IF they want to REALLY prove something then they should change their tow ratings to SAE J2807 ratings. If they really wanted to impress you guys they could have used E85 the whole time and went faster, more powerful, and left the engine looking brand new. The test of them pulling the race cars for 24hr is pretty impressive and simulates more towing stress than probably 99% owners ever would, all be it it is in 24 hrs and not over 5 years. That being said, this engine has been out long enough that I would buy one in a second especially if people can beat the EPA ratings in 4x4.
