    Damn that’s odd Dip. I need to get mine in one of these days. My wipers when used you have to cycle the multifunction switch a few times or the wipers won’t turn off. They won’t turn off just turning off the normal way.

    I did some research the last gen of the steel F150’s had a tsb for this but 15 plus are excluded.

    Im hoping this thinking occurs when the Bronco launches. Big win for everyone of course when there is competition.

    Every vehicle has issues with that amount of mileage. You’ll pull up the random one that doesn’t obviously. It’s silly that you think otherwise.

    Unless the manifold is glowing, you dont need to let it cool down, the turbos are water/oil cooled. They won't suffer. The turbos are built out of top grade materials too.

    Why? Bc some poor bastard sees that advertised, buys it and blows up his engine. Thankfully there is enough info online to prevent that now. The average consumer should not be sold a tuner with a blow up tune on it and not be told that is the case.

    2018 F-150 has only been out 18 months or so. There are already 9 recalls on it. Highest in the industry for a full size truck.

    Not to mention all the TSBs and reported customer complaints, on leaks, oil consumption, valvetrain noise and trans issues. If it makes you feel better, you can believe all of these are just anecdotal and random occurrences.

    You didn’t specify the vehicle you have. I have 17K miles on mine, in the 15 months I’ve had mine the only problem up to this point is the recall on the seat belt firing issue. But we all know you’re an Ecoboost hater, so...?

    Im at about 24k miles on my 2017 3.5L F150, no significant issues other than the stupid leaking oil pan.

    The oil pans have gone back to metal, at some point in 18 it was switched over.

    Is there any water/oil circulation after engine shut down?

    Mine has only had two the door latch recall which was fine before I got it. The fire seat belt one. It still has an open campaign for the door latches but I sprayed a copious amount of WD-40 in the latches before winta last year and will again this year.

    I can only speak for the f150. It is back to metal pan on 3.5.

    My 18 Raptor has the metal pan and it was produced in late March early April 18. Imagine my surprise when I purchased extra oil pan drain plugs (for the plastic pan) and discovered the pan was metal.

    Only one recall I'm aware of on 18 150's is 19S11 and it's for the block heater cord. Ford is not the only manufacturer recalling cords.
    There are 30+ TSB's, which not every one is specific to every 18 MY. It usually has a date window. Also not every truck will have the symptom/problem described in the TSB.

    Figured out the issue with my 15 5.0 and my Ford techs were right. Just installed my JLT CAI and the issue has stopped, best part is it sounds beefier even though aside from fixing my problem it doesn’t absolutely nothing lol.

    Wonder if any other F150 owners have had this issue.

    I have a 15 5.0 and haven’t had that issue yet. Just the damn multifunction switch. Did you change anything with a programmer after installing the JLT?

    Mine is 18S27, @DriftwoodSVT had a recall on his 18 raptor dealing with roof bracing. But as you said, recalls are specific to certain manufacture dates.

    I was slightly inebriated when I replied to @mc01svt earlier so what I said didn’t make a lot of sense...as much as I would like a perfect vehicle, I would prefer the manufacture issue recalls that fix ****ed up issues instead of just hoping they go away. Although Ford does not have that rep for all of its vehicles.
