  1. Bronco Team Engineering Confirms 7.0 Quarts for 2.7L Engine Oil Change is Correct

    If oil was hiding anyplace in a 2.7, everyone with a 2.7 in an F150/Explorer would also be having dipstick issues...but apparently they are not...so it is a Bronco-thing. When a manual lists capacity for an oil change, it is assuming it is not the first time the engine has had oil, and following...
  2. 2021 Bronco workshop manual now live

    Thanks! I found my leak...it was the line that crossed from passenger to driver side, and it is made of corrugated plastic. I may just replace it with an old school rubber section (like the last run in the current system that goes to the rear window). Not sure why Ford chose to go with the...
  3. Bronco Team Engineering Confirms 7.0 Quarts for 2.7L Engine Oil Change is Correct

    I wish mine was like yours...my build date was early September. When was yours? I don't know what could have changed between our builds but if 6 quarts is at the max mark on mine and 7 is on full mark for yours and our sticks are the same something is up. Have you checked your oil level when...
  4. Bronco Team Engineering Confirms 7.0 Quarts for 2.7L Engine Oil Change is Correct

    I assume both your Broncos have had oil changes because you shared that they take 7 quarts, correct? Otherwise you would not have known if they took 7 quarts is my guess...unless you are assuming the factory filled them to 7. If the former is the case, and if our sticks are the same part number...
  5. Bronco Team Engineering Confirms 7.0 Quarts for 2.7L Engine Oil Change is Correct

    Thanks for the info. In your opinion shouldn't the dipstick accurately reflect the proper oil level regardless of oil pan depth and capacity? I think at the end of the day all the owners are seeking is being able to know that if our dipsticks indicate "full" that our engines are in fact at the...
  6. Bronco Team Engineering Confirms 7.0 Quarts for 2.7L Engine Oil Change is Correct

    Whatever the issue is I hope they sort it out and reflect it in the manual. I know someone posted a 2018 F150 pic of a stick, but I am wondering what the comparison between a 2021 F150 stick and a Bronco stick looks like side by side. The parts person verified that although the valve covers...
  7. 2.7 Oil Change: Took 6 Quarts Not 7

    I think Ford, as they have recently been prone to do, come up with cool ideas like a 7 quart capacity oil pan and then drop the ball. With our 2.7s, it would be unusual if the pan held less than even the 2.3s, but they may have had to scrap the deeper pan idea due to space restrictions...or...
  8. Bronco Team Engineering Confirms 7.0 Quarts for 2.7L Engine Oil Change is Correct

    Ford has also given another direction..."don't fill beyond the max mark on the dipstick." It is in the owner's manual in PDF, in html, and in our entertainment systems (which could easily be updated over the air if Ford wants to). THAT direction also warns of potential engine damage and to...
  9. Bronco Team Engineering Confirms 7.0 Quarts for 2.7L Engine Oil Change is Correct

    Nope...same number as mine. What is yours several hours after drainback/cold?
  10. Low Windshield Wiper Fluid (leak)

    I will certainly ask...but even though I am a mechanic, I suspect the only way they will warranty the clips or the silly corrugated line is if they themselves pulled it apart (versus me bringing in the pieces). Also, from the factory Ford circles the spots in the panel that they want clips...
  11. Low Windshield Wiper Fluid (leak)

    I would for a major issue but for this it would have meant waiting for days to have the dealer fit me in then more days for the part and then my side panel not fitting together they way it should after a tech pulls the panels off...so I will just replace that entire corrugated section of wiper...
  12. Low Windshield Wiper Fluid (leak)

    Found the leak! Ford routes a rubber line from the wiper bottle to the rear of the passenger seat, inside the vehicle, and then it makes a 90 degree with a plastic fitting. Then, the fitting connects to a plastic ribbed line that crosses under the passenger seat to the driver's side...where it...
  13. (UPDATE-COMMON 2.7L ISSUE, NO OFFICIAL FORD COMMENT) Dealership service department says Bronco 2.7L takes 6 quarts of oil (not 7 quarts per manual)

    The factory Ford fill is a decent oil...but there are also much better oils out there. My point is that there is no "extra" moly in the factory Ford oil...it is simply the factory recommended oil used in every change thereafter. The lab may detect some remnants of assembly lube in a factory...
  14. Bronco Team Engineering Confirms 7.0 Quarts for 2.7L Engine Oil Change is Correct

    1000% agree...finally a fellow engine builder who understands both the importance of not overfilling but also the concept of the same oil level height regardless of pan depth...and as a bonus the implications of too much oil in a boosted engine...
  15. (UPDATE-COMMON 2.7L ISSUE, NO OFFICIAL FORD COMMENT) Dealership service department says Bronco 2.7L takes 6 quarts of oil (not 7 quarts per manual)

    It does not...ask Ford. This topic has been discussed zillions of times. New style rings break in much faster than back in the day. Ford uses standard semi-synthetic. I wager you will not find a shred of accurate information directly from Ford engineering that supports your claim.
  16. (UPDATE-COMMON 2.7L ISSUE, NO OFFICIAL FORD COMMENT) Dealership service department says Bronco 2.7L takes 6 quarts of oil (not 7 quarts per manual)

    The manual says: 1. That the capacity is 7 quarts 2. To immediately drain oil out if the level on the stick is above the max mark Based on the fact that so far any of us who either have a factory fill or who add 7 quarts after a drain and filter change end up with an oil level about an inch...
  17. Low Windshield Wiper Fluid (leak)

    Hello! The bottle itself (or the neck) is not my issue...mine filled easily and quickly. The issue is it leaks from under the car nowhere near the bottle from both passenger and driver side rocker panels. I imagine a loose connector underneath, but I am dreading having to go hunting for it...
  18. 2021 Bronco workshop manual now live

    Can you possibly get a pic of where the windshield and rear window washer lines are routed? Mine are leaking from the factory from both sides near the rockers and I am trying to remove as few panels as possible...
