High pressure oil line o-rings??

Anyone else have trouble with these? Mine blew the other day and apparently its a common problem almost looked like the rear main seal was blown until i noticed oil was on top of the motor also. Ford says they have a recall warrenty on it though.

Yes they are relatively common, but no, there is no recall. I see your truck is an 03......what they were reffering to is your 5 year 100k powertrain warranty. It will cost you a 100 dollar deductable and thats it for any motor problem untill 5 years or 100k

its a VERY common mis diagnosis....it does really look like its coming from there when you first look at it...

If you look in the tech files there is an oil leak guide there as well for future reference...
