I don’t believe this. They would leave that feature off and add it when ready. I think it’s a clueless help desk person.
Btw, my scheduler doesn’t work either. I get a FordPass isn’t responding error. Any ideas?
Very true. I had a few European turbos (BMW and Porsche) and they don't tend to make it make it to 100k miles. I thought it was a turbo thing, but it turns out it's a BMW/Porsche thing. Turbos on the Ecoboost should be rock solid for a long time, a few outliers notwithstanding.
I think both the Ecoboost and Coyote are fine. If you said you wanted a PowerBoost for the generator, then there would be no substitute. But between the two you are considering, you would probably be happy with either, though IMO the Ecoboost is a better performing, slightly more efficient, and...
Sorry for your tough luck. But they can replace it and you’ll soon forget about it. A friend of mine at work in the UK bought a new McLaren and the engine blew up on his first drive home. They treated him well and made it right. It can happen to any car.
Diesel engines make more torque for several reasons. The higher energy content of diesel fuel produces a more powerful stroke (PowerStroke 😉). I *think* the fact that they don't have a spark ignition system and are therefore unable to time a spark makes them suitable for lower RPM, so engineers...
Diesel fuel has a higher latent energy content than gas, especially E10. The reason you need high compression in a Diesel engine is because it’s a compression ignition engine, versus a spark ignition gas engine. So the Diesel engine relies on compression, not a spark, to keep it going.
We all know that the way an engine works is to burn the latent energy of fuel, combined with the correct ratio of air (14.7:1 for "stoich"). So if you need to produce X amount of horsepower to pull a load, you need to burn a certain amount of fuel and air, no matter whether it is a...
I am using an Apple MagSafe charger in that same compartment. The problem is that it generates an error code on Sync4 saying it’s an unapproved device. Do you get that code with the Anker?
Around me it never snows but people drive to Lake Tahoe in the winter, where it dumps. So one buyer in the future may require 4x4 and another may just want to stay local, where 4x2 would be fine. I suspect that around me there just wouldn’t be that many buyers for 4x2s for that reason.
It depends. To me the only real benefit of this engine is highway mileage. But the negatives are less power, more maintenance, and having to use diesel fuel. If you value both highway and city, the Powerboost makes more sense. Resale also may be a slight negative on the diesel.
