HelloThis is Samuel. I am sorry to hear of this matter. You have a warranty that covers the engine. I suggest you need to allow Ford to try to fix it and if not then they need to replace it under the warranty. If they do not, then I suggest you can begin by filing a consumer complaint with the Attorney General in the state where you bought the car.What state is it and I can get you that contact information?
If it is pre existing damage, then the dealership is responsible. And in that case, you should try to negotiate with the dealership to have them replace the engine, as it was sold with the warranty. In no case, regardless of who assumes liability, should you be paying for a new engine.
If the dealer will not negotiate and take the liability, then you will want to consult with a local attorney to bring a lawsuit against the dealership for breach of the warranty.
