    Could you provide us with the name of the places that replaced your engines?
    Maybe some contact numbers of the people who inspected and evaluated the damage?

    Action Ford Constantia kloof, Johannesburg (that's my regular service agents) . My car is there right now. When the car underwent engine change in 2018, one of the mechanics said they carry out these engine replacements all the time ( I hated hearing that, having bought the car already at that point, but at least I appreciated the fact that he was honest with me)

    When faith is lost its is the worst. Ask yourself if you have enough faith in the product to take you to some isolated destination. Then the choice is simple.

    Never suffered any other mechanical issues since I bought this car except engine related failures (4 serious mechanical failures: 3 of them were fuel injectors failures. 1 of the failures was a coolant leak, which led to engine overheating). I have never had any other mechanical failure besides those 4. And curiously, all the 4 engine mechanical failures happened on my way back to Joburg, from Limpopo). The first engine replacement occurred in July 2018, mileage was 175 000km. The second engine replacement (the new engine) has come at approximately 70/80 000 km since July 2018. The current odometer reading is 255000 (because they don't reset the odometer reading when they replace the engine with a new one)

    another a friend off mine story....

    But a friend of mine also lost his second 3.2 engine, it`s been parked in a garage for almost 2 years now as he cant sell it due to still owning money on it and a Ranger without a running engine doesnt fetch much, and he cant afford to have it fixed again.

    Thanks - was just curious.

    Bad spot you are in man.........255000km, so there may be some other components also on their way out, andyou have that mountain of money to spend on the engine now
    Stuff like the gearbox/tranny/cooling/ etc etc.......Id just make 200% sure all those stuff are still OK before splashing on a new motor (again).

I normally don't give any credence to rumors or stories not directly from the owners but this is first hand knowledge. Replaced my 3rd 3.2 Ranger within 2000 km due to oil pick up resonance and oil use, Ford Montana just said despite the recall they do not advise their technicians open the engine up for the recall as they do not have the confidence in their own ability. Multiple other failures on the family in laws' own and staff vehicles i.e. transfer case, air con, leaf springs, transmission ect. There must be some inherent design flaw maybe not in the block itself but some support system i.e. cooling, injectors ect. and the retooling of the factory or recalls would just be more expensive than replacing the engines. I spoke to the CEO of Ford SA last week during a visit at my home, the Ford Wildtrak 2.0 biturbo 4x4 costs around R320 000 to manufacture before delivery to the dealerships.

    Got a guy that gave me his no yesterday. He says they have a complete 3.2 engine, not running, because they planted a Lexus.

    Might be worth buying something like this and a stranded one and get it going again.

    Just a question.
    Are there any of these engines that have died, that was fitted with a proper filter like UDF?
    Any of these that have died after the cat was removed?
    Any of these that have died after the EGR was blanked off?
    Any of these that have died, after a chip or a remap?

    I will firstly do all I think is necessary. Then drive it like I stole it for at least a month. Then brand it.

    No engine replacements luckily but when it was replaced the repairs needed on it was more than the car was worth. Needed injectors, complete steering assembly, front calipers and clutch.

    I must be lucky but I have never owned a vehicle that left me stranded next to the road. I'm no brand slut and have owned Mazda, Mercedes, VW, Ford, Nissan, Toyota, Suzuki and Mitsubishi.

    All of this borders on pure speculation. Get an expert to investigate the engine, components, and all other ancillary parts to determine the cause(s) of the engine failure(s). Then (and only then) will you be able to say what the cause is and whether Ford’s engines can validly be opined to be this or that.

    While you are (understandably) frustrated, to blame a new engine for an issue / cause that the relevant mechanic possibly failed to diagnose and address, is unfortunate.

    Default Second Engine Replacement Required for Ford Ranger less than 3 years?

    My 2.2 ranger needed an engine replacement at 26k km. Got it back last week. Piston cracked due to bad injector, injectors also replaced. This is my third Ranger. Also my last.

    Putting some kms on it and it will go back on Saturday for its 30k service and to sort out all the new installation niggles. Already had to go back for an oil leak that needed sorting.

    The bakkie was at my local dealership (Somerset West) for a month. A faulty product is one thing, but bad support is another. Ford is dead to me.

    My truck fleet is going all Isuzu, my bakkie will also when the current bakkie gets replaced. Hopefully I can service it at where my trucks go. Boland Isuzu Paarl. They are amazing.
