Ford Shelby GT350 Oil Consumption and Engine Failure

myCarVoice.com in partnership with CaseAdvisor.org is investigating a class action investigation 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 reported 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 become dangerously low

Shelby GT350 Owner Voices

Car 7 quarts low after having ford do oil change 9 months prior. 3,500 miles put on the motor during that time. No oil on the ground where the car is parked. 2018 GT350, less than 15,000 on the car.

My 2017 motor was replaced with a 2019 motor. My car is no longer a matching numbers car which devalues the car. Collectible cars are number matching. Paid good money for a collectible car but now I’m stuck with a non matching numbers car. Not happy about that.
