You probably not going to get alot of help on that car .... this site is mostly about the 15-18 GT350 models .... you need to go to site that specializes in those years of cars

I have 1800 miles on 2017 GT350. When I was tracking it the dipstick kept coming out of the filler tube and enough oil to make a sizable cloud of smoke. Ford can't find anything wrong. Any ideas?

@  Fantiniastic : (31 December 2017 - 01:10 PM)

@Hell on Wheels I have just over 1000 miles on mine and I experience the same thing - don't think it's abnormal. I've read its an expected behavior of this engin

@  smokum : (30 December 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Try calling the hot line at FRPP .....

@  Hell on Wheels : (28 December 2017 - 09:58 PM)

My 2017 GT350 has 4000 miles on it. At about 2600 it started ticking upon acceleration and deceleration. There is a sweet spot in between. I've been told this is piston slap. Problem is it doesn't do it only when cold and doesn't go away when warmed up. This sound makes me cringe every time I drive the car. This sound can't be normal but Ford can't diagnose it. Help?

Anyone want to sell me their factory car cover?

@  Fantiniastic : (24 December 2017 - 11:18 AM)

I've been driving around for the first 2 weeks of owning this car in normal mode with the exhaust, steering and shocks in sport. Had no idea how aggressive the ECU mapping was in SPORT. Holy cow!

@  smokum : (20 December 2017 - 01:00 PM)

mine isnt that bad .... no where near it ..... but once i reved to high and didnt have the clutch fully engage and got that smell .... it was my fault .. it did go away after a day ... i know better .. anyway go to your Ford store .... the clutch is covered for 12 mths or 12000 miles for defects ..... you might get lucky and get it replaced under warranty

@  Hitman1 : (19 December 2017 - 03:15 PM)

My 2017 GT 350 with just over 3000 miles has a burnt clutch/ burnt rubber smell coming from motor area and when A/C is turned on the cockpit is filled with the burnt smell. Regardless if I've been driving it or just sitting in the garage. Horrible smell emanating from engine bay... Any ideas? FYI - The clutch seems fine, no issues and has been driven correctly and easy in the first 3000 miles.

@  smokum : (14 December 2017 - 02:35 PM)

Rprout, my car consumes a quart about every 1200 miles give or take. I drive it aggresively on the streets using lots of high RPMS ... according to ford this is within normal limits of the design

@  Rprout : (13 December 2017 - 07:39 PM)

My 2017 GT 350 consumed 1qt in 920 miles - spirited street driving only - I see at least one person here with oil consumption issues. Anyone else? Remedies?

@  Foon : (08 December 2017 - 01:46 PM)

I changed dead battery in 2008 Shelby, now my instrument cluster is not working correctly. No fuel indication , no oil pressure indication,no blinkers or 4 ways(indication). All lights work but don't indicate. Did I blow a fuse, does the computer need reset??

@  smokum : (07 December 2017 - 03:30 PM)

Congrats tipmartinez ..... incredible car isnt it

read the stats on fox and cnn .... what a monster ....... one seat ...... no a/c ... no radio ... anything to save weight and two small skinny drag tires (comes std with the car)  in the back that allows you a change over at the drag track

 

Street legal with Nitto drag radials on it Im sure.... extra wide .... and prob a slight different compound made up specifically for this car for Dodge

 

And just this second someone told me Ford just released the HP numbers on the new Shelby GT500 670 hp

Straight line power is nice ....... and I had a 750 hp GT500 but I really dont miss it.

 

You cant use it for the most part .... I wasnt a drag guy so never went to strip, and you had to be careful when

you used the power for obvious reasons

 

I love my GT350 ..... esp on the interstate .... so so hard to stay at 70 mph !!

I agree with Don on this.  Straight-line acceleration is indeed exhilarating.  For me, though, there's more to it.  I enjoy twisty country roads.  In the GT350 I generally ignore those yellow suggested speed signs on the corners.  Brisk acceleration in the straights, then a hard corner, repeat....  It continues for as long as you or the road want to.  1/4 mile performance is over in a few seconds.  And of course, the better your performance, the quicker it's over!  Road courses are where it's at.

you dont hear about it alot now but in the day we had alot of GM retirees buying Ford because of what GM did to there share holders etc

 

When GM went bankrupt I believe the shares werent worthless but close to it ..... alot of GM shareholders lost a ton of money.

 

On the flip side, I recall Ford stock dipping to as low as $1.24 a share ..... we werent sure if Ford would make it so I didnt pull the trigger on stock but I should have

The Damon MSRP is $85,000 plus the 'ADM' which I bet will be at least $20K thus putting the Dodge over $100K plus...
