Hi Mate,Thanks all. So I hit up Brad Garlick in Ryde this morning. The head mechanic said to replace the feeder line even though I told him the root cause is the HG sealant or timing cover. Issue is I don't have much ground to stand on. Out of warranty and I haven't serviced the car at Ford. Powertrain warranty doens't apply for Oz. Service dude told me they will do a courtesy fix for me seeing it is low kms, and just charge me an hour of labour. So the game begins. At least doing this, I can go back to them if (hopefully not!) it starts leaking again and then take it from there. Nice enough to give me courtesy car for 2 days.
Ford Australia guarantees the work performed by its dealerships. If the recall they performed has led to this leak they are still obligated to fix it, even though you are out of warranty. It doesn’t matter whether you service the car with Ford or not as long as the car is serviced by a registered mechanic as per the service book.
Who found the leak? The normal mechanic you go to or the Ford Dealership?
