Should Ford cover part of all of this repair out of loyalty?

  1. Yes, a water pump failure at 95k should not destroy an engine

    For y'all's reference, while I was having my rear link recall performed, I asked for a quote to change the water pump, chain, and guides. They included a spark plug change on the quote. $2010. Not really as bad as I expected. I'll wait for my Premium Care to expire....if it goes before 100k miles, the replacement engine will only be $100 out of my pocket. Keeping the car for my daughter's first car, next year.

    I lost the engine in our former 2011 XLT, due to the water pump.

    I fully understand that. But I am related to the Murphy's and had it occur on our 2011...

    From what I have been gathering, the failures are MUCH less on the newer redesigned pump.
