Hi

Looking for advice, thoughts on this one please. My son has a 4 year old Fiesta Ecoboost which has developed a fault resulting in the car needing a new engine at a cost of over £7000. The garage report says "“C+R on noise from engine. Found noise present due to engine misfire. Misfire present in cylinder 3. Oil level below minimum on dipstick. Topped up to suitable level for diagnostic testing. Cylinder 3 spark plug wet with oil, carried out compression test & found that 3rd cylinder compression is significantly reduced. Cylinder 3 damaged due to oil starvation because of leak from oil cooler assembly. Engine replacement required.” This sounds like a manufacturing defect to me, what are your thoughts? He doesn't have a warranty on it now.

Thanks
