I have a 2014 b max eco boost and the cam belt has just gone causing a ridiculous amount of damage and I now need a new engine! There were no warning lights or noises ahead of this. Iíve done 41,000 miles most of which is town driving with the occasional motorway journey.

Iím faced with scrapping it or paying out LOTS of money to have it repaired. Of course itís out of warranty....

Any thoughts?

The cam belt on the ecoboost engine is designed to last for the lifetime of the engine ( it runs in a bath of oil ). Did you buy it from a Ford dealer ? If not, contact your local Ford dealer and go from there. Let us know what they say. This is of interest to all of us with this engine.

Thanks Howell. Yes I bought it from a dealer - December after initial registration (March 14) so I was second owner. It had been a demo car so very low mileage when I got it, one of the appeals of it.
