I have had my 2018 Mustang GT Performance Package Level 2 for three weeks today and this morning while shifting from 3rd to 4th at about 40 mph the engine grenaded..  Below is the link to the Mustang6g forum for a picture of a chunk of the engine block and what used to be a piston ring.

Looks like you got a bad one. Ford should take care of that for you without question.

Sounds like a new engine courtesy of Ford to me.

A friend of mine had the same thing happen with his Sons Focus ST with only 1200 miles on it.

LOTS of low mile 5.0L 2018's dropping valves - F-150 and Mustang. Almost always on the Driver's bank. Ford is aware and trying to fix the issue.

It sucks but they will fix it. 2011 6.7 had issues with dropping valves.

None whatsoever - no low oil light, no low pressure indication, nothing.

I dont see how this is so news worthy. For the customer its a big inconvenience. But overall engines fail from every manufacturer. The gm guys shouldnt be so quick to talk crap. Remember the car and driver corvette that ate a rod bearing? Talk to your local Chevy dealer they are putting engines in for knocks on trucks. Hell even Tesla has to change drive units for noise. I just dont see this as such an awful unbelievable situation. Look how many that dont need engines. I have a 2013 f150 with a 5.0 196k Miles never has engine work done.

I wonder what the root cause for this was.   Obviously, it is a rare occurrence.    There has been some talk on other forums about a ticking noise in some of the 2018s but you never know exactly what people think they hear on an Internet forum.

Ive noticed for whatever reason a lot of newer Ford engines have louder valvetrains. I always figured it was because of the plastic valve covers.

Direct injection makes some noise, too, and sometimes that is hard to distinguish from valve train noise.   The early 3.5 ecoboosts sounded like diesels but the newer ones are much quieter.

That’s the direct injection on the ecoboosts.

Thats the direct injection on the ecoboosts.

Neither of my cars are Ecoboosts. One is older than the original 3.5 EcoBoost by several years.

Try again.

Well that is the case with the majority of the noise complaints. The DI ticking is extremely loud.
