I placed an order and paid for the License plate holder that is listed on this site on the 15th & to date I have not gotten any shipping info. Also sent an email with no response. Any suggestions? It is through registry market place.
They refunded my money, but I really wanted the license plate holder. I will look elsewhere I guess.

Unless you already have, I would post this under racing ..... but I think you will be fine. I am sure your not the first GT350 to run that track.

@  G3012 : (26 October 2017 - 06:54 PM)

I have had my Metallic GT350 for a little over a year now, and love to drive it. The mountains of Northern CA (Napa, Sonoma, Lake and Mendocino counties) are a drivers dream. I also went to Utah for the 2 day school that was way too much fun. I now am planning on some track days out here in the west, but must meet their sound limits. Sonoma and Thunderhill have a max of 103db, while Laguna Seca are as low as 94 some days. How loud is this monster? Has anyone had any issues on track days for noise? Has anyone been to Sonoma or Thunderhill with their GT350 and had any issues? Thanks for the help,

@  smokum : (24 October 2017 - 03:24 PM)

Any current production car its hard to tell if it will be a collectible or not. I honestly don't see that with the GT350. I dont think it will affect value since it was a warrantied item. Its unfortunate that this is happening but you are getting a new engine which is the right thing to do with Ford. I don't think Ford will replace the car. I suggest if you want a better sample of opinion to start a thread in the appropriate section

@  tedstefaniw : (24 October 2017 - 10:17 AM)

Hey members, would like some Opinions. I purchased my 2016 GT350 late march this year from Levittown Ford NY. I was getting some serious engine knocking noise when starting the car. Had it in the dealer three times, first in July to get it checked, they couldn't diagnose. after keeping the car for days. 2 weeks ago car lost almost all the oil, due to the Oil filter backing out! Most likely due to the excessive engine vibration(rods/lifters?). Destroyed my driveway and my Jobs parking lot. Finally this last time they told me I need a new long block! No problem thay will order new engine. My gripe is I want a new car, I didn't pay over sticker for the best Mustang ever built to get a engine replacement after 6 months. Not to mention , if I ever want to sell the car what this would do to it's resell value. Opinions please?

I'm in desperate need of some guidance.  I've put a lot (I'm not telling) of miles on my 16 GT 350 and I'm having some real issues with my drivetrain.  There are multiple spinning noises and gear grinding noises coming from the flywheel or clutch/trans with vibration felt in depressed (half way) pedal.  Many people familiar with drive train tell me it is not a bearing issue but most likely an issue with either the flywheel (imbalance) or the clutch disc's.  I've taken it to two local Ford dealerships only to find out that 1st dealership... "are not comfortable addressing the issues" after she was in service for 4 days and 2nd dealership... "our transmission tech cannot get to it until the middle of next month".  I later found out they both have a terrible service complaints with tons of negative feedback comments online.   

 

I'm trying to find a dealership near me (Columbia, SC) that will fix the issues.  I'm extremely worried about damage to the TR 3160 and need to get her in service fast.   

 

Does anyone know how I can find a dealership that has service experience with the 15/16 Shelby GT350 near me?  Ford performance cannot give me a reference and I'm getting a long silence on the phone from most of the dealerships I've contacted.

 

Once again, I live near Columbia, SC.  The dealership I purchased her from is about 6 hours away and is too far to drive in this condition.

 

Any help is much appreciated.

Hello Scuba.

Is there any way you can upload a video to show us the noise that you are having with your transmission.

Im afraid that the clutch and gearbox will soon become the Achilles heel of our cars and ford is not ready to face this.

I just hope Im wrong.....

Sure I'll upload one tonight after work.  I believe I might be the first to have these issue(s) since I have the highest mileage on one to date, I hope I'm wrong.

I've had some difficulty with Ford actually.  This (2nd) new dealership had the car for two weeks and only discovered an exhaust leak, great but what about the clutch/trans?  They found that one of the flaps to engage mild to wild (Exhaust Sport mode) is suck as well.  This prevents the driver from changing the user selectable drive modes or putting the exhaust in sport mode from the toggle switch.  The dealership was also chasing a different noise that the clutch noise I originally described, after a test drive with a tech...the 'Ah Ha' look appeared on his face and told me they were chasing a different noise...the exhaust.  I'll keep the car until the exhaust parts come's in, after which they will drop the exhaust and trans to see what is going on within the bell housing/synchros.  

 

 

BTW, don't call Ford Performance Shelby hotline after you've had a long day and feel you might miss understand some questions...They'll tell you "not to call them as the GT350 is not a speciality vehicle, call the normal Ford hotline for any questions or concerns" WOW.  I couldn't believe they actually told me that.  In their defense I did misunderstand a question but forgive me after working 16 hours on problems within the Middle East.  I wish I could tell the Taliban/ISIL-KP to call a different number while I'm on duty.   I've saved so much deployment money to purchase a high performance vehicle and I think I should expect high performance technical help/service and maybe some patience.  

 

If anyone knows of a dealership close(ish) to either Fort Jackson or Shaw AFB in South Carolina that will treat the car like it should be treated...Please, I'm begging you, let me know.  

 

Sorry for venting but this problem has turned into a real stressor for me and wife.  I'm going to stop being so aggressive in my complaints as I've found that has been getting me nowhere.

 

In conclusion...I'll let you all know when all is said and done, but don't hold your breath, It may be a month from now.

 

Happy Driving...

The plate between the trans and engine is loose in some of the cars and makes a lot of noise.

It looks as though you have several ideas of fellow members on what the problem could be.

 

I know you contacted the shellby hot line but was that FRPP ?

 

If it wasnt, FRPP might be away to go to find out a dealership that can work with you and if its that bad I might suggest to

take the trannny down for an inspection .... odds are they are going to find something wrong and be able to fix it .... 

 

the more people give u advice such as I have at sometime a light bulb will go off and you will find your smoking gun,

 

pls keep us posted as what it is you do find

That is who I suggested u call .... FRPP .... Ford Racing Perf Parts , 800-367-3788, this is Ford

 

I work for a Ford store. Another suggestion is to find out who the area sales Zone rep is and have him suggest a store for you.

Also when you call a store dont talk to a serv adv.... speak to the service director 

 

Hope this helps
