The Next Day I Took It To A Mechanic And He Told Me I Had A Bad Head Gasket And Found That It Damage A #1 Cyl, Bend Connecting Rod, Crack Piston And Of Course A Bad Head. To Fix It Was Over $2,500. I Live In A Social Security Disability With A Fix Income Since February And Cannot Afford To Pay All That Money And Barely Make The Payments. The Mechanic Told Me That It Has Been Lots Of Problems With These engines And Head Gaskets. I Told My Stepdaughter And We Went On-line Surprised To See Lots Of People With The Same Problem. ford Knows About These Problems Since 1998 On The 3.8-liter V-6 Head Gasket Used Between 1988 And 1995 On The Taurus, Sable And Continental, As Well As The 1995 Windstar And We Think They Did Not Fix The Problem Not Until Way After 1998 When They Issued A Technical Service Bulletin.

Took It To Personal Mechanic And He Called ford Dealership. He Was Told The engine Was Getting Ready To Blow. That There Was A Problem With This Motor And Mine Has Lasted More Than Most.

Overnight Hydrolock Condition, Caused By Faulty Intake Gaskets And Cylinder Head Gaskets, Causing Immediate And Unforseen Internal Damage Up To And Including Damage To Pistons, Rods, Crankshaft, And Bearings. We Were Non-informed Due To ford‘s Neglet To Send Appropriate Recall Notices For Both Vehicles Owned By Our Family. This Is A Well Documented Problem Within The Internet Community, And Although ford Did Issue Recall Notices, We Did Not Recieve Any To Our Current Knowledge. ford Motor Company Will Not Fix This Problem Because Apparently It Is Too Late To Turn In A Recall. The Response Given By ford Motor Company Does Not Seem Ethical In My Eyes, And Many Consumers Are Out Of Transportation And Be Out The Money That This Will Cost Them To Fix The Problem Themselves. These Are Honest, Hard Working Citizens That Have Believed In ford For Many Years, And For This Kind Of Problem To Come Up And To Have Them Not Do Anything About It, Removes Any Shred Of Confidence Still Remaining In Todays Manufactured Goods.
