Continuing oil leak issues

My recently purchased still under warranty 2007 F250 constantly leaks
engine oil from the rear lower corner of both cylinder heads. I have had it
back to the selling dealer 3 times now since I purchased it in April. They have had the truck well over 1 month total for those 3 times. So far they have replaced the EGR cooler, engine oil cooler, both cylinder heads, head gaskets, CAC tubes, glow plug harness, etc. Should I let the dealer try to fix it one more time or just drive it off a cliff?

Need to find a new shop if they can't fix it. You have already paid so it's on them. They must have chacked the Bed Plate.

That's the impression that I received when I let them know that it was still leaking, they kind of politely told me to find another dealer.

Update on the oil leak. The Ford dealer put me in a new 2011 F350 to drive for 2 weeks while they replaced the engine in my 2007 F250. Have put about 1k miles on since new engine and all is doing well. Ford really pulled thru for me!

So what did they find when they pulled the motor? Or did they?

They said the Ford field rep came down to look at it and came to the conclusion that the block must have had some problem that they couldn't detect even though the block checked to be perfectly flat and the heads were flat, etc. So yeah, not really sure what the problem was.
