409k on my 2014 Connect and I finally had to change out the engine

Recommended Posts

I bought my 2014 TC in April of 2015 with 37 miles on it. 

It has servered me well for my delivery route that I run. “ almost 600 miles a day” 

The engine lost compression in cylinder 1. 

I think it had something to do with the valves. “ I drive pretty hard to get my route done so the poor van has taken a beating. 

My oil was changed every 10k and it served me well up until it started missing at 409k. 

I bought a wrecked 2014 TC with 100k on it from copart and and swapped the motor and trans now it’s back in service. 

Im hoping to go another 300-400k! 

 

I have a ton of parts from the wrecked TC if anyone needs anything.

Wow that is a lot of miles! Do you have pics of your TC as well as parts TC?

 

What kind of delivery route do you have at almost 600 miles a day?

 

Oh and welcome to the forum.

Inspiration! So good to hear that these can put that much road into the mirrors...

Could you share with us other maintenance issues you've had with it so we mere mortals know what to watch on our own cars?

I actually run a courier route delivering meds to nursing homes. 

Ill posts some pics of the parts TC I think I have a few of my van as well. 

As far as any other issues I’ve had along the way, the third brake light died so I had to replace that around 350k . 

The radio died around 275k “ I have the CD player with the sync system “. 

Beleive it or not I didn’t even replace brakes until 400k and they still would’ve passed inspection. I had the trans serviced at 160k then I just changed the fluid once myself around 380k. 

I’m on my 4th set of tires. That’s all I can really think of for now. 

 

I also have a 2014 transit connect wagon that I’m fixing up. 

Here are some pics. 

The white one is the parts unit. 

The black one with the white hood is the one I’m fixing up. 

 

Ill get some pics of my transit I use every day tomorrow for you guys.

I’m showing the the miles that are on my van in this picture. Sorry, I’m not sure what you mean when you say low cluster. This is the digital display that is between the tachometer and the speedometer on my guage cluster. Yes it is set on the cruise control setting.

That is impressive mileage you went on that engine. The body on the van still looks very good, these are tough vans!
