I'm not a Ford fanboy and this is only the 2nd Ford I've ever owned. This is definitely a real problem and total bullshit to even have to worry about it on a new vehicle. That said, there are literally tens of thousands of these on the road now. 2.7 is by far the more popular engine choice.I love the argument the fanboyzz make that this forum is a small percentage/representation of bronco owners so it’s probably not an issue at all. That makes absolutely ZERO sense! If this forum is a small percentage and we have 12 REPORTED blown engines, that could actually mean a way bigger problem than we even know! And it’s not like there are thousands of 2.7 broncos out there to begin with.
But that’s why this thread is here- collect data and find out as best we can if there is or isn’t a widespread problem. Ford certainly won’t come forward.
