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

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

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

Something to ponder about .....

 

 

Ford is real specific on this and working for a dealer ..... I'd rather pay a little more and know if there is a major screw up I know I am covered because a Ford store DID it

 

You do it yourself or go to jiffy lube ...... a whole other story

I was thinking of buying just the oil to take to the dealer so to save a few bucks. I would never have Jiffy or 10 minute lube ever touch my GT350...

Agreed I would never take my GT350 to any quick lube shop. I would rather do it myself with motor craft products.
Even the dealer can ding or scratch you ride.

thats the only problem is having the dealer work on the car. People are still people and even with me being a manager at the store I work at you would think

all would be fine on my car.

 

The car that I traded in on my GT350 was a 07 GT500. I was getting tires on the car and I try to keep a eye on the car when its in our shop so I walk over to the tech that

is putting the tires on ( directional of course) and the tech is putting them on backwards ...... shit happens so you do have to be aware and make the dealer aware that your

looking over there back.

 

Think the other thing to do is to ask for a Sr tech to work on the car .....

Smokum I hate going to the dealer for fear of dings and scratches but the senior tech is a good idea. !!

It is and just let them know that you have had previous nice rides damaged at the hands of a dealer. Most stores know how anal a GT350 owner is and wont let a kid changing tires work on them

 

Most mind you ...... not all !

There is no doubt you will make sure the car has no scratches or dirt in the seat when done. I wish all techs took the pride we do but when you do there job day in and day out

it does become routine as with most jobs and their corresponding tasks.

 

However that said, for a warranty claim it is real important to consider having the dealership do the oil changes for the documentation

 

 

Ford is clamping down on this type of stuff

I have a 2017. I have read that some of the 2017's have the traditional metal filter and some have the new style cartridge filter. Are there any vin codes that determine this or do you have to get under the car remove cover for visual?
