Cost Cap Usage
All Ford and All Lincoln dealers are required to fill out the Cost Cap tool for engines and transmissions if the repair cost exceeds the thresholds documented in the Warranty and Policy Manual. Ford will advise if the assembly replacement is required. Your technician must support all parts selected on the cost cap sheet with a defect to justify them being selected. Cannot use general terms such as metal contamination because that is not a defect. A completed Cost Cap is required to submit for Powertrain Prior Approval. All assembly replacements require a cost cap sheet be completed.
