So I just heard back from the dealer about my car. (June 2016 build, 9500 miles, stock tune, V5 motor with the hex nut). Coolant is getting into cylinder #1. They sent the info to Ford. Ford has requested a new head to be installed. The dealer was told by Ford the head is on back order until June... But they're doing everything to get one ASAP. After reading about the cylinder wall scarring on here and other forums I'm going to be sure they look for that as well. I'd rather have a fresh motor installed than just a head. I tell everyone to never buy the 1st year of production of a car for this reason yet I couldn't listen to my own advice lol.

Seems to be the lowest miles so far. Isnt 100% confirmed yet but ford tech yesterday told me its most likely to be an engine replacement but they are running more tests.

@RS-Kel
I think for this thread to be useful to future owners it will need to include the VIN number of the vehicle.
Why? It's had a new engine. Let's not start panicking over nothing. If you care that much, you'll know to check the VIN against the engine number anyway. Otherwise it's just scaremongering that might impact future values
