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 .....

@  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

I have a 2017 GT350 (2100 miles) that has developed a clunk / squeak in the passenger side rear suspension. Local ford dealer thought it was the right rear shock.. ordered same, installed it which seamed to have stopped the noise. It has returned again after just a 100 or so miles. Has anyone heard / experienced this problem? I haven't seen a TSB on this. Any insight appreciated.

Not sure but I've noticed a clunk when I pull out of my garage backwards. I think it might be that 'Hill Holder' option sticking...

One of the first things I did was turn off the hill holder.  It would activate even on slight inclines and prevent smooth acceleration before clunking loose.  I've been driving sticks since high school, so I figure I don't need a hill holder at this stage.   :clap:

 

I also get a clunk sometimes when backing out.  I know in my case, it's not the hill holder since it's turned off.  It seems to the brake pads that stick to the rotors.  Usually it happens when the car sits overnight after a wash or enough rain to thoroughly wet the rotors.  It can take a fair amount of throttle to break them loose.  Seems to be less pronounced if I leave the hand brake off.  Had a similar thing occur in my GTI.

Thanks for the responses. But.. It's much more of a squeak type noise. Not fill holder or e brake. My guess is / are suspension bushing or something similar. ..? As the replacement shock wasn't the issue.

the brakes do catch when the car has been sitting for a while .... and I didnt know you had the option of turning off the hill break. I love it on and it helps on those gentle slopes and gives u 

a few seconds to transition from the brake to the gas.

 

Your clunk if its that noticable, have you taken to your Ford store to see if they can find anything loose ?

my service folks told me that even the GT have the same issue- it's mainly due to having the parking brake on after a while. You really have to gas it to break free- almost feel like I am going to crack the axle!

I've read through the GT350 supplement, but don't recall coming across; how to you turn off the hill holder function?

It's in the main Mustang manual, but not the supplement.  It's called "Hill Start Assist" and in the "Brakes" section.

Well it's still squeaking. This is after many months and 4 service visits.
To date repairs include:
a right rear shock replacement,
a spring bushing replacement and
a sway bar bushing replacement.
Current status.... the shelby is back with me (yea!) and we the local ford dealer is waiting on another call back and diagnostic from the engineers at ford.

I've seen it before just scroll through the options and u will find it and just turn it off. I love it .... slight incline and the car doesn't roll back until you have enough time to touch the gas

It’s been resolved. I gave it a month or so to ensure squeak was really gone. Ford replaced all rear shock and sway bar bushings. That finally did the trick.
