    What’s FSA?

    One last thing on the head gaskets, should it be on the vehicles carfax report if it was indeed replaced? If you were buying a used 2016-2017 RS would you still buy it if there was no proof that the head gaskets were replaced buy Ford on the carfax timeline reports? I keep looking each day & many of these cars have 15-20k miles on them & don’t show head gasket replacements?

    Unlikely they'd show on carfax, as it's a maintenance item. Your other service requests wouldn't be on carfax, neither would this.

    FSA stands for "Field Service Action" and it's not a recall unfortunately so it won't show on the carfax. If your purchasing at a Ford dealer(or know someone at a dealer who can check for you) you can ask for that cars Oasis Report(by VIN) and that'll show all maintenance done to the car including the FSA for the HG. Also the new HG will have a brass rivet on the HG front pass side of the engine that you can see/feel and you'll know it's the updated HG. See below pics:

    Unfortunately if it's not been done by now it isn't getting done as this particular FSA program ended 5-31-19.
