Buyer Beware of Engine Failure

Review

Truck always regularly maintained and serviced at Ford dealerships. We take care of and expect our vehicles to last. It was running perfect until it immediately began idling rough at a stop. No check engine light, we just know our truck. Took it in for a tune-up (replaced spark plugs, etc.) and oil change. Perfect bill of health - couldn't replicate problem. Long story short - towed it back to Ford - they were able to replicate the problem - oil pressure dropped suddenly - need new $7k+ engine at 68K original miles. Others having same problem, but no recall. Unreal. Plus, while under warranty - had the four wheel drive go out and other engine issues. Not Ford tough.

Favorite Features

Beautiful truck. Rides well.

Suggested Improvements

Recall this engine for the 2005 year. Something is different - different parts in the original design or??? Too many owners are having the exact same problem and spending thousands rebuilding these young engines only to have them blow again.
