TSB means Ford is paying for it.  No need for an extended warranty.

That isn't what TSB means.  TSB's are only covered under warranty if the vehicle is under some sort of manufacturer warranty whether it be bumper to bumper or extended.  If the vehicle isn't under warranty, a TSB is paid for by the consumer.  A TSB is not a recall or customer service satisfaction bulletin.

Nope. 

 

Ford pays for a job under a TSB only if the vehicle is within the warranty period. The TSB generally indicates a solution to some issues outside the normal diagnosis procedures, mostly something more common than normal and a fix outside the usual methods.

Paragraph reformatted for clarity...

 

Warranty Status: Eligible under provisions of...

  • New Vehicle Limited Warranty (NVLW)/
  • Emissions Warranty/
  • Service Part Warranty(SPW)/
  • Special Service Part (SSP)/
  • Extended Service Plan (ESP)

...coverage.

 

Good luck!

Absolutely incorrect.  TSBs have nothing to do with warranties.

Ford did recently come out with a customer satisfaction program for the 1.5L in some vehicles (not the edge) for the same type of problem.  Eventually if a CSP would come out for the 2.0 in the Edge owner's would be eligible for reimbursement.  There is some hope based on the CSP for the 1.5L.  Cross your fingers, keep poking the bear perhaps, etc and maybe wishes will come true.

As you mention, Ford just extended to November 30, 2022 the Customer Satisfaction Program (19B37, 21N12) for coolant intrusion on the 1.5L Ecoboost in certain 2017-2019 Escape & Fusion models with no mileage limit.

 

That Program's refund policy for affected Escape & Fusion owners, per the Owner Extension Letter, is...

 

"If you paid to have this service done before the date of this letter, you may be eligible for a refund. Refunds will only be provided for service related to an engine short block or head gasket replacement due to coolant intrusion into the engine cylinder bores. To verify eligibility and expedite reimbursement, give your paid original receipt to your dealer before November 30, 2022. To avoid delays, do not send receipts to Ford Motor Company."

 

Good luck!

I sure hope it does get extended. My '18 Edge just rolled over 33,000 miles and I am experiencing coolant drop, CEL for misfire in cylinder 1 and rough idle and white smoke at start up. My wife and I love the Edge and if I have to cough up the money for a new engine, then so be it. I can only pray for reimbursement.

Does anyone know if there is a waiting period for a replacement motor? I hate being a pessimist, but I have a feeling a motor replacement is inevitable at this time.
