Exclamation 2010.. dead. ~update~

Not mine..


but..


My grandparents just traded their 2009 Ranger in for a 2010 Explorer Sport Trac..
They had it under a week.. @ the 237km mark it started chugging and no power and died.




Sunday night got it towed back to dealership it was purchased from.
Monday morning it was rolled into shop.
Thursday rolled out with new engine installed.

WTF? under 300kms and it needs a new engine..

Spark plug broke off in cylinder was the diagnosis..

I wish I had pics.. but apparently there wasn't much to see.. and they live over an hour away.
