2020 Ford ECOSPORT - ENGINE Failure Complaint (#b05ab8)

2020 Ford ECOSPORT

  • Date of Incident: Nov-22, 2023
  • Date complaint filed: Nov-29, 2023
  • Failed components: ENGINE

I was driving down the highway and a warning light came on “low oil pressure” and i lost complete power and had to pull over along side the road and have my car towed. Once it got to the mechanic shop he said my timing belt shredded and is in my oil and the belt tensioner came off and now my motor/turbo is ruined. He’s been in contact with all of the local ford dealers and we were told this is a common problem with my cars year but i was not aware of this. I am due to have my first child any day now and i can not afford $3000(+) and some of the parts are on backorder per the ford dealership and i have no transportation. I’ve included a few photos that the mechanic sent to me for this report. I can get more if needed.
