Black Box capability

Following on from my last thread re: running in the engine, could Ford tell by reading the ECU or whatever, what your driving habit has been? Somewhere in the manual it says something about being able to read engine parameters for diagnostic purposes and after an accident.

Sorry for being a bit vague about the detail I read. I wish I could quote page ref, but I'm lazy and it's too cold to go outside and get the manual.

It seems to me that there could be warranty issues if the Barra croaks and Ford could prove against advice that revs or speed have been excessive. Love the car, just curious.

Re: Black Box capability

No they can't tell what your driving habits are.

The PCM will record things like, average speed, faulty sensors things like that, but not if you have thrashed the guts out of it.

It'd be pretty hard to kill a Barra engine.
