We Have A ford F150 Clubcab Pickup. It Was Performing Fine And I Came To Work And Went To Start It And It Would Not Start. My Husband Came To Help Me And It Finally Started But It Had A Severe Knock In It. He Took It To The Gargae For Repair And Was Told It Was The engine. No Warning Pf Any Sort. It Had Great Oil Pressure , Chnaged Frequently, Coolant Was Fine Etc. We Were Told That It Has A Bulletin Out On It For This Very Problem But No Recall. We Now Have Heard Of 3 Other People With The Same Identical Problem Around Our Small Community. ford Says They Will Do Nothing About It As It Is Just A Bulletin Not A Recall Problem. The Garages Around Here Have Told Us This Is A Common Problem With This engine. If fords Would Even Pay Half Of The $3600 Repair We Would Be Satisifed But They Tell Us No.

I Was Coming From The Doctor With My Wife When My Truck Starts Doing A Laud Knocking Sound. I Could Not Figure What Was Going On. The Temperature, Battery, Oil Pressure And Everything Was Fine. 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. Now 1998‘s f-150 Got Exaclly The Same Prablem. I Don⿿t Know What To Do !!! I Have Not Call ford Credit To Tell Them Yet. Anny Sugestions Please E-mail Me At Jessym28@hotmail.com

I Have A 1998 F150 I Bought New. I Have Been A ford Person For Many Years But Will Not Buy Another ford Until The Problems With The Motor And Transmissions Are Corrected. At 72,000 Miles I Had To Replace The Transmission. ($2,200), At 92,000 Miles Check engine Light Came On, Idling Was Rough But Drove Fine. Took It To The Mechanic He Said Tune-up Would Correct It. $400 Later, Still Check engine Light And Idle Rough. It Just Stopped And Wouldn’t Start Back Up. I’m Having To Replace The Block Ect.. Having To Continue To Pay A Nice Vehicle Payment Each Month And Insurance And Still Not Having A Vehicle To Drive Is Ridiculous. Very Disappointed With ford!! Kl. *la

When I Started My 1998fordf-150 Today, A Great Deal Of Noise Occurred And Finally A Rod Shot Out Of The Bottom Of My Truck’s Oil Pan. The Truck Has Only 72,000 Miles On It. Upon Investigation, I Have Discovered That Many People Have Had The Same Problem With Their 4.2 Liter engine. Apparantly ford Know About This Problem, But Refuses To Acknowledge Or Fix It. From What I Have Read, The Problem Starts With The Head Gasket Going Bad Putting Coolant Into The engine Creating The Failure. Please Help Others So That Won’t Have To Shell Out $2,500 For A New engine Or Possible Get Hurt From Flying Parts!

Have Had Problems With My 1998 V6 fordf-150 Pick Up, Regarding Coolant/water Loss, So Have Continually Done Coolant Maintenance. Started The Truck Up Last Saturday 5/7/06 And The engine Made An An Awful Sound, And White Smoke Came Out Of The Exhaust. The Truck Was Running Fine The Day Before. My Truck Was Towed To A Mechanic Yesterday, And They Say The engine Needs Replaced, Which Will Cost $4,000.00 Plus. I Have Seen Many, Many Complaints From F-159 V6 Owners, 1997-2000. I Cannot Afford To Have The Vehicle Repossessed, As I Still Owe $4,000 Plus On It. I Cannot Afford The Rebuilt engine Repair, And Now Have No Means Of Transportation. Also, I Am Currently Unemployed And Looking For Work. ford Company Needs To Do Right By Their Customers, As This Same Problem Has Happened To So Many f-150 Owners. A Class Action Suit Is Currently On-going In Northern California, According To A Consumer Website. I Never Received A Recall Notice From ford. Please Let Me Know How I Can Join This Class Action Lawsuit.

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.

Head Gasket/ Head Bolt Failure At 66,000 Miles. Mechanic Reported It During Routine Service. Said 3 Things Cause This Failure. 1. Lack Of Coolant (overheating), 2. Defective Gasket Or 3. Factory Defect During The Milling The Head. Mechanic Reported This As A Known Problem With This Model Of ford Truck. Since The Coolant Level Has Always Been Maintained, That Leaves The Other Two Possibilities. Since This Vehicle Is Regularly Serviced, Problem Was Caught Right Away. No Indication Of Problem Before Hand. No Tsb Issued For This Vehicle But Some For Other ford Vehicles In Same Manufacturing Year. Searching The Internet Found Similar Problems With Other ford 150s’ With Premature Blown Head Gaskets. Repairs At ford Dealer Were $2300 With Little Choice To Go Elsewhere. Problems With Dealer In Getting Repair Done Correctly, But That Is A Different Complaint. I Have Seen Other Recalls For Defective Head Gaskets Over The Years, This engine Should Be Considered. *nm

On My Way Home From Work, I Noticed My Temp Gauge In The Red And My Oil Pressure Gauge At Zero. The “check Oil” Light Was Lit As Well. The Truck At The Time Was Running Fine, No Noises From The engine And No Smoke From The Tailpipe. I Pulled Off To The Shoulder Of The Highway And Had The Truck Towed To The Nearest Shop Which Happens To Be A ford Dealer; Diablo ford In Pittsburgh, Ca. On 09/12/05, The First Day The Service Dept Was Able To Get To It, I Received A Call From The Dealer Telling Me That Both Head Gaskets Were Blown. The engine Needs To Be Pulled And Disassembled To Check engine Bearings, Connecting Rods, Valves And Pistons To See If There Is More Damage Than Just Blown Head Gaskets. So Far The Quote With Internal engine Parts Not Damaged Is $3200. That Quote Could Rise Very Easily If Internal Damage Is Found. Since This Happened, I Was On The Fightback.com Website And Have Found Literally Hundreds Of People With 1997 To 1999 F150 ford Trucks With 4.2 Liter engines. Apparently, ford Has Changed The Design Of The Head Gaskets In Mid 1999, Due To Consumer Complaints For These Particular engines. My Understanding Is ford Refuses To Acknowledge The Problem, And Hundreds If Not Thousands Of People Are Shelling Out $3000+ To Repair Their Trucks. In Some Cases, Entire engines Were Replaced For Thousands Of Dollars More. I Believe ford Should Recall And Cover The Costs On The engines. If I’m Not Mistaking, The 3.8 Liter V6 Shares The Same Block And Heads As The 4.2. The 3.8 Is Found In A Lot Of ford Windstars And Taurus’. Somebody Needs To Accept Responsibility For Making Faulty engines. *nm

To Whom It May Concern: I Am The Owner Of A 1998fordf-150 4.2l Xlt. A Few Weeks Ago I Noticed A Slight Hesitation Upon Starting My engine. Once The engine Started, It Struggled A Little And Then Smoothed Out Once I Began To Drive. The Truck Continued To Run Fine, Once Started, But Continued With The Slight Hesitation When Starting The engine For About A Week. On September 1, 2005, I Attempted To Start My Truck And Found That It Would Not Turn Over Right Away. I Let The Truck Rest A Moment Then Again Attempted To Start The engine. The Truck Started Up, Then I Heard The Slight Hesitation And All Of Sudden I Heard A Loud Bang Followed By A Loud Noise Coming From The engine. I Had The Truck Towed To My Mechanic Whereupon I Was Informed That It Was A Rod Knock, Which Shot Down Through The Oil Pan. He Found Coolant On The Plugs And Water Intrusion Through The Intake Manifold Into The Block. He Informed Me That My engine Had Hydro-locked. Through Research I Was Able To Determine That This Is An Apparently Widespread Problem. I Found That ford Motor Company Issued A Recall On The Intake Manifold Gasket In 1999. I Never Received Such Notification, Although I Have, In Fact Received Information For Other Recalls. I Was Never Sent Anything In The Mail And Had No Idea Of This Problem. In Addition, I Am Informed That ford Motor Company Is Not Doing Anything To Rectify This Matter With Customers. I Currently Have 117,000 Miles On My Truck And Had To Pay Over $4,000.00 To Replace The Long Block. I Had To Pay To Repair A Problem That ford Obviously Knew Existed. Since ford Was Aware Of The Potential Danger Of Damaging The engine And Did Little, If Nothing, To Inform Its Customers Of This Potential Danger, I Feel That ford Motor Company Should Be Held, At Least In Part, Liable For The Damage Incurred To My Truck And To Many Of Those, Like Myself, Who Have Had The Same Problem. I Would Greatly Appreciate Your Assistance In This Matter. *jb

# 5 Spark Plug Blew Out Of My 1998fordf-150 5.4 Ltr engine. Returning Home From Alabama. I Had Just Gotten Through Charlotte, Nc When I Heard The Sound Of A Very Bad Exhaust Leak.
