Victims of Ford© and Lincoln© Engine Failures May Be Eligible for Compensation

NHTSA is investigating Ford© and Lincoln© SUVs due to reports of catastrophic engine failure. The scope of this investigation now includes:

  • A range of Ford© vehicles, such as the F-150 pickup truck, Explorer©, Bronco©, and Edge© SUVs;
  • Along with Lincoln© Nautilus© and Aviator© SUV;
  • All are from the 2021 and 2022 model years;
  • All are equipped with either a 2.7-liter or 3.0-liter V6 turbocharged engine.

NHTSA Is Investigating Ford© and Lincoln© Engine Failures

U.S. automotive safety investigators have expanded their inquiry into Ford© Motor Co. engine failures, now encompassing nearly 709,000 vehicles.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has upgraded this investigation to an engineering analysis, signaling a step closer to a potential recall.

The NHTSA has raised concerns that these engines may experience power loss during normal driving conditions due to possible catastrophic engine failures linked to alleged valve issues.

The investigation was initially initiated in May 2022 after the NHTSA received three letters from vehicle owners, initially focusing on the 2.7-liter engine used in Broncos©

Since then, Ford© has reported 861 customer complaints, warranty claims, and instances of engine replacements, encompassing the other mentioned models.

Ford© provided information to the agency, stating that defective intake valves typically fail early in a vehicle's lifespan, with most failures already occurring. Additionally, Ford© indicated that it implemented a valve design change in October 2021 to address this problem.

The failure point allegedly stems from valves dropping into their respective cylinders and causing severe internal damage.

This issue could affect over 25,000 Ford© Broncos equipped with the engine. Ford©’s Bronco might have been one of the automaker's most extensive revivals in company history, but it might face some problems.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened an investigation of 2021 model year Ford© Bronco SUVs that the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 powers.

The investigation centers around the engine’s valvetrain, which can cause the engine to fail and render the turbocharged off-roader inoperable.

This NHTSA investigation relates to more than just the 2.7-liter engine’s valvetrain.

The root cause of this issue is that:

  • The valve keepers, which lock the valve spring retainer to the valve, are failing.
  • This can cause the valve to drop into the combustion cylinder;
  • This could cause a significant amount of damage.

The agency is simply looking to "to assess the scope, frequency, and potential safety-related consequences of the alleged defect.

The NHTSA report cites 26 Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) complaints about the issue

While that’s a relatively small number of complaints, this could affect over 25,000 Bronco owners, according to the NHTSA report.

It is worth noting that this 2.7-liter V6 isn't exclusive to the Ford© Bronco. This turbocharged V6 sees use in Ford©’s ever-popular F-150 pickup.

This could springboard into a recall, though most of these Broncos are probably still under the factory’s 60,000-mile warranty.

Still, it’s hard to say what the outcome of this NHTSA investigation will be until the investigation wraps up.

Eligible victims are encouraged to request a free, private case evaluation by our experienced legal staff with the potential for compensation and justice.
