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

Having 20% put on windows (except windshield) today. WA state law allows 24% thus 20% is pushing it. I've seen some pony's with 5% which is crazy- you cannot see anything in the car! Could way to meet the police force everyday here...

I have had window tinting in almost every car ...... except for the last three. My two GT500's and my current GT350. In part the clear windows give you a slight better visibility esp at night but

the biggest reason is so people can see the inside of the car and i can see them .... LMAO !!!

wag ...... the red calipers would look great on all GT350s except red and black

 

RED and BLACK cars our off the chart great looking .... spend the extra money and get the R calipers .... that car is gorgous now and

would be doubly gorgous with the red calipers

Always check with local codes for tinting.  Many areas of the country do not allow tinting over a total percentage of the what is already in the glass (all cars come with some tint due to having a/c).  If the car is sold or you transfer to another State, it has to meet the local code.  I have seen so many cars locally that had to have the front windows and rear glass tint add on tint removed (it is not cheap to have done).  The codes usually are based on the  ability of law enforcement being able to see those in the car, day or night.  Being a stealth driver is not appreciated by the police and sheriff departments.

Thanks Don for posting the pic of Wag's red calipers.  I'm swapping a 2013 Carrera S for the Shelby and will miss the Porsche red calipers (silly I know) but are those completely new calipers or covers or painted or what?

I tinted everything, except the window shield, with 20%. WA state law is 24% thus close enough to be safe. This is state is fairly easy on the tint but other states actually inspect the glass during their yearly inspection (i.e. New York)!
