    2017 GT350 oil filter leak and related TSB - anybody else?

    Hi, all,

    I have a 2017 GT350 with 3,400 km.

    The car was built in May, 2017. When I took it out of storage in the Spring, I noticed a couple of spots of oil on the floor.

    On inspection, it appears the oil filter was leaking, so my technician buddy torqued the oil filter to the recommended spec, and the filter tightened perhaps 1/8-1/4-in. It's still leaking.

    Today, I took it in to my dealership to have it checked out under warranty.

    After the tech looked at it, he advised the service writer that there is a Technical Service Bulletin regarding the oil filter O-ring. The car is driveable, but we are waiting for parts, a new oil filter and gasket, I assume.

    Anybody else experiencing this oil filter leak?

    Thanks.

    Tim

    TSB 18-2159 -'17 oil leak

    Hi. Sorry to hear your car has the same ailment.

    Google Ford TSB 18-2159. You should find the pdf file showing all the parts and tools needed to complete the service. Issued 01 June 2018.

    My car is repaired and fine now, but when my car had the issue addressed last September, the tech said the TSB failed to include a part needed to complete the job. If I recall correctly, it was a new wiring connector to hook up with the oil pressure sensor. All's good now, but it was a bigger job and required more parts than the tech originally anticipated.

    Good luck.

    Tim

    I don't have any oil leak issues so far. Going on 12,000 miles.
