Hello all! First post. I have a 2008 Bullitt with about 100,000 miles. So for the past six months I have been battling my Bullitt’s engine. It runs and drives while cold but as soon as it warms up it dies at idle. The RPMs drop below 500 and surge between that and dead
The follow codes are being thrown.
P0022
P0345
P0340
I have replaced the following:
Alternator, both camshaft position sensors, both solenoids, both cam phasers, timing assembly and oil pump. The parts I replaced showed no signs of wear or damage

I took my car to a Ford dealership/shop and they told me there is movement in the crank shaft and it would need a new engine. This seemed odd to me since I am always current on oil changes and have never seen any shiny bits in the oil to show that it has warn down. Plus it seems odd that if it need a rebuild or replacement that it would run and drive ok when cold. Hoping someone has an idea. Thanks.

Thanks for the reply! All of the parts replaced have been Ford Performance parts minus the oil pump which is a melling high pressure high flow.

have you checked the TPS? and for your year, don't know if the engine has one, but the IAC? just curious, you posted in the 01 mechanical issues section, but you say in your message it is an 08. Is it an 08 because the 01 definitely has an IAC.

I have an 08 this is my first Mustang. I think someone linked the 01 post due to its similar issue. I’ll check the TPS tomorrow. After all the issues began I cleaned the throttle body and didn’t notice anything overtly wrong. I check again and see if there is a test which can be run.

I had a similar issue with mine except I also had codes p0349, p2198, and p0012. I had a rough idle, cam phaser knock, and die at idle only once the engine got warm - but it all started with the rough idle, dip below 500rpm and then die which eventually led to the other symptoms. I cleaned the same stuff as you and replaced everything that you had done, verbatim, and all it fixed was the phaser knock. In my last ditch effort I locked out the brand new cam phasers with the Livernois cut outs and that solved it for me. My symptoms were a little more severe, but it all started with dying at idle when warm.

Your description is exactly what happens to my Bullitt! How long ago/ how many miles has it been since you installed the lockouts?

It's been almost 9K miles now with my lockouts in. My gas mileage isn't as good as it used to be but I also installed the Hot Rod cams at the same time since I was in there, so although I know locking out the phasers reduces gas mileage I can't really say how much the mileage was reduced just by the lockouts. After extensive reading on the internets, I found that several F150 drivers were having symptoms just like I was, after doing the same work, and found a solution with the lockouts. That led me to think that even though I had just upgraded the oil pump maybe my engine just wasn't getting enough oil pressure to it anymore. I figured it was worth a shot since it was only a fraction of the amount of work that I had already done with everything else.
