Just thought I'd share that. Honestly, any major engine issue like this is truly terrible for any owner, regardless of brand.
This is a great forum guys...have not been here long, but I check in just about every night. There is a tremendous amount of knowledge here!
Well put HorseMan! This sounds like a manufacturing defect that could happen to any brand. I hope the poor guy ends up with some favorable resolution from FORD. I have owned pretty much every brand of truck and they all have their Lemons. I've had some excellent Fords and then some that were not so great. I am on my 2nd Hemi Truck now with the first having been given to my Father (2003 Hemi Ram 4x4) and it's still running great and does not use or leak a drop of oil to this day. The Hemi is a proven engine and we are fortunate.
