Default ECO boost = eco burst!!

Coming home on the interstate bout 2am decided to play around in my truck. My exit was coming up and my padna said what mileage you get at 100mpg??? To my suprise my cruise control actualy set at that speed! Better yet i got 12.9mpg at 100mph lol.

During that i saw headlights from the only vehicle i passed not falling back. So i slowed down to take the exit he followed. Got to the next redlight it was a young kid in an eco boost f-150 CC. He yelled go on green and so we took off. I had his front tires at my back door. At about 60... I hear boom and screaching and when i looked i saw white smoke all around his truck on the side of the road.

Beeing nice i made a circle to make sure he was ok. When i approached all i saw was a huge oil streak with a little debris and him on the shoulder with the hoood up and smoked out... Lol

From what i saw, he had a gaping hole on the right side of the block and the "tiny" turbo seem to be deformed lol i said man, you need to call a wrecker cause your truck is going in for an engine swap lol

Wow brand new and already a KABOOM! I feel bad for this guy. I would be sick if it was me. The Eco boost is a pretty fast truck when they do run. Good job on pulling over and offering to help him out.

Wow! I don't think that's a common thing to happen. The saving grace, it's during the warranty period. The bad part, the computer will have logged all the events prior to the destruction, and he may have some explaining to do at the dealer. Hope he doesn't get hassled too much. I doubt the EcoBoost is an inexpensive engine to replace.

Wow is right, poor guy, I feel bad for him, too and agree, mighty nice of ya to turn around and make sure he was ok even if his truck wasn't! Still counts as a kill, though, even if a bit literally!

I am not brand loyal-so I have no doubt some of you will be insulted...I don't care

I have owned several Rams and even more Fords---
on one of my trips to the dealer (free oil change I got with a new vehicle purchase)--well I was about 100 miles into that oil change, towing about 4000# of trailer and load traveling about 75 mph---I hear this clunk under the truck and hadn't seen anything in the road---I look in the mirror and see something white tumbling down and off the road....It takes me about 3 seconds to click in my head (oil filter) I look down and sure enough non oil pressure and a big red light glowing at me....by the time I shut off the truck and coasted over to the side of the road, it surely had been running oiless for atleast 5 seconds with a substantial load. I walk all the way back there, find the filter and the o-ring...brush off as much sand as I can-crawl under and put it on the truck (Off ramp about 1/2 mile up the road with a gas station) I decide what more damage could I do-worst case scenario it blows up and I take the filter back off and blame the ford tech............I get to the station, no oil pressure the whole way, add 4 quarts of oil, start the truck and it seems to run fine-I ran that truck for another 80,000 miles beforing buying another and never had an issue.
That I would call built ford tough.

Of course I wouldn't go out and test this on purpose- because you know no oil has to have some good affect on engine life, but just saying this one still ran great and had no issues for over 80,000 miles after that.

So the die hards can bash on Ford all they want---I could pick out more problems with the dodges that I have owned than the fords that I have owned, just saying.......there is 2 sides to every coin

that is not a built ford tough though, that's luck that u didn't blow anything. not being hostile or anything, i just dont think a vehicle can be gauged on how long it can run without oil pressure.
