Hey all, I ended up running into a problem, and since I'm at 61.5k miles, I'm slightly out of warranty period.
A while back I started to notice the noise of water running on my car, I thought the coolant was low, so I added some more into it. I recently had my oil changed so I did not think to check the oil.
About a couple of days later, CEL came on, and P0302 was the code that I got back from scanning it. I changed out the spark plugs, along with the coil packs, erased the code and drove it around until it came back on. I then proceeded to add some Techron fuel additive and repeated clearing the code and driving around.
The light came back on today and I decided to check my oil cap to get an idea of the worse that is yet to come... I found some chocolate milkshake on the cap, and did a compression test.
Cylinder 2 is spewing out water while cranking on the other cylinders, 1/3/4 are showing up 150 constant, while CYL 2 is filled with water, and giving it a high compression # of 190.
After researching, I found out that this an on-going issue that Ford issued a TSB for it.. https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2019/MC-10162071-0001.pdf
I am weighing my options, I could have the engine rebuilt, and the same issue would come up later on, I could get a donor engine from a 2019/2020 that's under 10k miles or so for about $2000 or so for a long block. I also wondered what would it take to say... drop in a 2.7l in it.
I was wondering if anyone happens to know the difference of the engines between model years, I read somewhere that Ford revised the 2.0 in 2019, but I don't want to pull the trigger on engine without knowing if they fixed the issue or not.
I would appreciate any guidance!
