I went from having an egr valve issue to having a lifter fail which caused the oil pump, camshaft, rocker arm, you name it, it broke. So far my bill at the dealership is $3,000 just to tear it down and figure out what went south. But they are estimating $7,000-8,000 for it to be fixed.
Just doesn't seem right, I only have 112,000 EASY miles on it. Heaviest thing I tow is a load of pine timbers every now and then to the jobsite.
Should I go for the fix with my mouth shut, or is there any use at asking FORD why? While under warranty, I've had injectors fail, fuel pump fail, computer fail, and what gets me a bit curious is it overheated at 94,000 miles, so I drove it for 3 miles to the dealership and they replaced "a bad hose" No telling if that was the culprit that weakened the lifter or not. Who knows. I'm just pissed!!!
