myCarVoice.com is investigating a class action lawsuit on behalf of owners who purchased a Ford Shelby GT350 (model years 2016-18) that are prone to engine oil consumption, oil starvation and engine failure.
It has been alleged that certain Shelby GT350 vehicles have suffered from oil consumption, and oil pump issues resulting in low oil pressure within the engine. When this occurs, the internal components of the engine, including the crankshaft, connecting rods, main bearings, connecting rod bearings and cylinder walls, are subjected to severe conditions resulting in premature wear and ultimate failure. As a result, owners may be forced to pay out-of-pocket for engine repairs and replacements.
Details of Oil Consumption
- Oil consumption causes the engine to run low on much needed oil
- Oil pump fails due to drawing in air because of engine oil levels dangerous low
