I have had 2 Ford vans and have had head gasket problems with both of them. I replaced Head gaskets on the first one 3 times, then traded it in. I was assured at the dealership that it was a fluke and that ford vans were built well. I foolishly purchased my 2nd ford windstar and have replaced head gaskets on this vehicle 5 times. The first 3 times were under warranty, the 3rd time I was reimbursed partially, as a recall issue. Ford extended the warranty as "good faith" to 100,000 miles or 7 years, but failed to mention that the warranty was only good for 1 time. When my head gaskets failed again, I was told my warranty was only good for 1 time under the extension.
