Oil leaking for bedplate seal

My 06 was leakin a lil bit of oil, maybe a dime size drop every night. I didnt think much of it because it hasnt gotten any worse since I got the truck. But I didnt want to get it taken care of while I am still under warranty. So I took it in and they said its the bedplate seal. They are gonna have to tear the whole motor out of the truck to replace it. Yikes! I was debating on having it done or not for just a little oil leak, but he said that this would let them get a good look at everything else to make sure there was no other problems. I asked if they would put headstuds in while they had it out under warranty and he said no, which kinda sucks. Hate to have all this work pulling the motor out have to be redone someday just to replace the bolts or head gaskets.

I wouldnt worry bout changing it cause it is very common on this truck.. and if u do get it replaced it will most likely start leaking again later on down the road.

well if they are pulling the engine anyway under warranty to replace the seal, you could ask them to replace the headgaskets and put in studs while it is out. You would have to pay for the labor for R&R of the headgaskets and studs, but it would be worth it if you pop a headgasket when its out of warranty and have to pay for removal of the engine on top of the headgasket job. Just a thought.

had this done on my 05. Ford just put out a technical service bulletin on how to fix the leak. They are using gasket maker, along with the actual gasket. They told me it was the bed plate and replaced it 3 times. They did the head gasket twice (second time with the gasket maker) and that finally fixed the leak. No more drips. Good luck.

Sometimes, an oil leak from the cmp sensor oring could be mistaken as
A bedplate leak as well. Hopefully they ruled that out.

Got the truck back yesterday, they pretty much replaced all of the oil seals while they had it apart. So far no leaks overnight and no issues from the tear down. I am going to be taking it on a longer trip today, so hopefully all is good on it. I got a free oil change out of it too! Haha
