Review
Broken engine at 71,000 miles from ONP 99-20-7 (TSB99-20-7) due to front cover gasket leaking into crankcase. Ford and dealer will do nothing. This vehicle, alone with many others, was not on the notification list about the problem. That means that these owners were never notified that it may fail. I even had it into dealer while under warranty, when the heater quit working. Guess why? You got it - low coolant! Their lame excuse was a disconnected tube or something. They covered it up. It's been sitting in my yard for 2 yrs. Broken tie rod while driving, crankshaft pulley broke off on highway, very poor gas mileage. My new truck is a Silverado.
Favorite Features
Drives nice (at least it used to). Now it's a lawn ornament, pending possible civil action.
Suggested Improvements
Notify all buyers of potential problems, not just a select few based on build date, location, etc. At least some people had the chance to replace the bad front cover before total engine failure.
