2004 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCrew XLT Rwd Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I have a 2004 XLT 5.4 Crew Cab something in the engine broke around 77,800mi when I was doing about 45mph. Tow it to the dealership to have them look at it. They believe the crank broke because it does not turn. The dealership contacted Ford to see about help with the problem and Ford said out of warranty its their problem. New engine thru Ford around $5,000 then labor it would cost $7,400. I also talked to the reginal rep. for Ford that takes care of Gorno Ford and she said you're out of warranty. I told her that I know I am out of warranty but I should get more then 78,000mi after spending over $32,000 dollars. I ask to talk to her boss and said she has no boss to answer to. FORD TOUGH
Looks good sitting in my backyard, to bad I can't drive it. If I knew I had to spend $40,000 in six years I would have brought a F-350 or Hummer
Work with their customer to fix problems that are major like this and it should not matter if you do your own oil changes. The dealer charges over $30.00 and thats for 5qt of oil. Buy Motorcraft oil 7qt and filter for around $18.00. Do the math when money is tight.
