With all the internet chatter regarding the infamous #8 cylinder failure, I guess it would have come to this sooner than later.

FOMOCO has issue a TSB warning owners of the voiding of warranty under the listed conditions dated 07/01/11!!. YIKES!!!

Good luck fellas!

Yes... But never a copy of the TSB... Thanks OP for the TSB.. This is exactly what I've been looking for. I have a brand new tuner still in the box. No tuning for this kid. Atleast until warranty is expired.

After reading this TSB I also removed the K&N drop in air filter. I've been told by a friend that the Mass Air Flow Sensor is hot and oil from a drop in air filter such as the K&N can get on it and possibly screw it up causing a whole host of engine idle and operation issues. My car likes to consume lots of oil, so I'm not taking any chances with warranty issues that may arise with FOMOCO. I have 3,100 miles on mine and it's gone through 2.2 quarts of oil. No tick. Tranny sounds fine. The shifter is a bit different than my 09 CS, but I've adjsted to it. Just a wee pit concerned about the oil consumption, but I need to wait a bit longer and see if it stops. This Coyote is so techologically different than any other mustang engine built. I'm gonna sit back an let other folks venture into uncharted territory. Me, I'm gonna play it safe... for now that is!:winks

Is this still an issue with the 2012's? What are they saying some of the causes are?
