You have the sauce on the "bad valves" theory? As far as I know, that's just speculation and guessing.2018+ F150 have the same Nano 2.7. The issue is not a design flaw, but a bad batch of valves.
Now why some of those bad valves have not made it into the F-150 line I don't know. But I believe the F-150 and the Bronco versions have different oil pans. If that's the case then the bad batch of valves made it into engines solely slated for Broncos.
My FE was Blend date 9/30 and built on 10/2 so not a dirt mountain build and outside the previous valve issue window. The dealership is not tearing down the engine so they are only confirming it had internal damage and is approved for replacement. Good news today is the dealer has gotten a 12/15 ETA for the replacement engine.All of the dealer demos were built mid/end of June. 6 months of in-service for the FCTP program means most will be available from now through January. Keep in mind, that some demos were sold early if the dealer was able to source 2 as apparently only 1 is required to meet the in-service requirement and be outfitted with accessories.
Now the OP's failed engine post from FB is missing details such as when the build date was and whether it was just a coolant hose coming loose or whether it was the engine failure that caused the coolant leak.
There is also @ToddGinGA mention of his FE having an engine failure on page 2. No details if his was built and stranded at Dirt Mountain or whether it was a recent build. More details are needed.
No. Notable is a synonym for remarkable. There is not a remarkable amount of 2.7 engines having issues.Yes & No. There are a notable amount of 2.7s that are needing engine replacement .. however when compared to the actual amount of 2.7s on the road that are fine, it's a very very small percentage. I'm eagerly awaiting my 2.7 to go into production in a couple weeks, without fear.
That is why I italicized it, as I was using the word lightly. No need to dissect it, lol. It’s enough that it should be taken note of. I clarified my response already. I’m still eagerly awaiting my 2.7No. Notable is a synonym for remarkable. There are not a remarkable amount of 2.7 engines having issues.
As far as I recall, none of the actual dealers are allowed to tear apart the engines to verify why it went bad. The dropped valve I thought came from someone more in the "know".You have the sauce on the "bad valves" theory? As far as I know, that's just speculation and guessing.
So we've had a dozen reports on our small little website with very few members compared to the overall Bronco reservations.No. Notable is a synonym for remarkable. There is not a remarkable amount of 2.7 engines having issues.

Based on the monthly build totals, Ford has made, what, 20-30k. I don't know how many of those are 2.3, but I'm imagining quite a bit due to 2.7 constraints.
So yeah it's not like every other 2.7 is dropping dead, but it's significant enough to know that Ford has issues. Tossing the people that have had engine issues due to pulleys cutting through the hoses and it gets even worse.
