Airborne4162 Posted February 10, 2008 Report Share Posted February 10, 2008 Hello to all you GT 500 owners, I upwrapped my beauty from winter storage. Started it and got a hard engine MIL light. I immediately took it to my Dealer who quickly troubleshot it down to a bad MAP sensor. FYI to all proud and watchful owners who has stored their investments for safe keeping. Details on my factory stock Shelby GT500 are as follows: 2008 Shelby GT500 Black/Alloy Stripe Stock everything 3245 miles Coupe 1st owner, accepted with 7 miles on ODO No hard driving or track use Furthest drive (3.5 hours) to Indiana from Ohio Home Heated garage, insulated to include doors Kimberly Clark Noah cover Oil changed with factory Motorcraft FULL SYNC Q GT500 oil @ 500 miles, 2nd due @ 3500 (soon). I share everyone's pride and excitement in ownership and hate to hear bad news on such an investment. Don't get me wrong, this isn't to bash the GT500. I for one truly enjoy my GT500, but like everything mechanical, if you use it, it could break. I hope to inform you about what could go wrong, or if you suddenly experience a hard engine check light, you won't be the only one. Have fun with your car, I plan to once I get it back from my dealer next week. For what it's worth. Airborne all the way. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
