First Noticed That The Truck Was Hesitating And Could Not Accelerate Easily. Took To A Friend Of Ours Who Opened Up A New Auto Shop And He Changed The Oil And Noticed That It Was Contaminated With Coolant. He Then Pulled Up Tsb From The Internet Regarding engine Contamination, Article No. 99-20-7. He Encouraged Us To Take It To A ford Dealer Where They Could Further Diagnose And Hook Up To Their Diagnostic Machines, As Our Check engine Light Was On And He Wasn’t Set Up To Read The Computer. We Drove The Truck, With Brand New Oil, 4 Miles To Our House, Parked And Called A Tow Truck To Come And Take It To The Dealer Where We Had Purched The Vehicle. We Also Saved A Sample Of The Contaminated Oil In An Old Windex Bottle And Sent It To The Dealer. It Sat For Three Days With No One Looking At It Until I Finally Drove There Myself And Asked What The Heck Was Going On. I Was Informed That The Person That Was Supposed To Look At The Car Did Not Come Into Work And He Had Someone Else Looking Into The Problem. I Then Had To Call Back When I Got Home, 5 Hours Later, And Was Told That The Whole engine Had To Be Replaced Or Taken Apart To See Just How Much Damage Had Been Done. They Said It Was Excessively Driven With The Contaminated Oil. We Never Even Knew That The Oil Was Contaminated, Nor Were We Ever Notified Of The Recall Notice. We Have The Oil Changed Every 3,000 Miles, Always! Then He Proceeds To Tell Me That Our Vehicle Is Not Part Of The Recall. That Is All We Know For Now And Am Waiting For More Information From The Dealer After He Talks With His Manager And ford. Hoping For The Best.

This Truck Should Have Been Included In The ford Recall 99b29. After Contacting ford. They Refuse To Extend The Recall. It Is My Belief, That The Recall Was Too Narrow In Scope And Should Be Extended To All 1997fordf-150 Trucks. Many Other ford Owners Have Experienced This Same Problem (leaking Gasket Which In Turn Permits The Coolant To Leak Antifreeze Into The engine, Thereby Damaging The engine). The 1997fordf-150 Was The First Year Of The New Model Design And Apparently ford Is Not Stepping Up To Help Their Customers. My Research Has Indicated That This Problem Occurs With The 1997f-150 When The Truck Has Reached 60,000-70,000 Miles And After The Warranty Has Expired. The ford Dealers As Well As Corporate Has Knowledge Of This Problem And Are Refusing To Acknowledge That This Recall Was Not Broad Enough To Cover The Many Trucks That Have Encountered This Problem. Had My Vehicle Been Included In This Recall, I Would Have Taken My Truck Immediately To My Dealer To Have The Work Performed, Thereby Avoiding Any Potential Damage To My Truck’s engine. Instead, I Was Not The Recipient Of A Recall Letter And ford Tells Me My Truck Is Not Included. It Seems Clear That My Truck Experienced The Same Identical Problems Which The Recall Specifically States: ” 1997ford F-series 150, Equipped With 4.2 L engine; Vehicle My Experience engine Coolant Leak At engine Front Cover Gasket; Thereby Causing Severe engine Damage Is Not Immediately Corrected”. This Is Exactly What Happened To My Truck And How ford Can Not Claim Liability Is Unconscionable. I Would Ask That You Please Launch An Investigation Into This Defect And Try To Get The Recall Broadened In Scope. Thank You Very Much. Dt

I Own A 1997ford F150. I Recently Had To Replace The engine. I Replaced It With An engine From A 2000 Model. One Year Later I’m Haveing The Same Issues With The New engine. While Resovling The Problems I Was Having I Learned Several People Had This Same Issue. It Seems That Tsb #99-20-7 Was Issued By ford. It Describes My Problems In Detail. I Caught It Much Earlier This Time And Was Able To Replace The Lower Intake Manifold Gasket Before Any Significant Damage Was Done To My 2000 engine. ford Needs To Take Resonsibility And Fix The Issues Related To Their Tsb #99-20-7. One Of The Biggest Problems Is The Information Regarding This Issue Is Not Wide Spread. The Issue Is Often Mis-diagnosed As A Blown Head Gasket, Which Is Twice The Cost To Fix. So Consumers Are Paying The Price For fords Cover-up. A Web Site Is Setup With A Plethora Of Information Regading This Issue. Www.leakingfords.com. *ak
