car   Blown Head Gasket problem 2
Failure Date: 05/03/2004

I own the infamous 1999 Ford Expedition with the head gasket oil leak. Though I loved this car from the day I purchased it new up until the time at 50,000 miles the oil started to leak. It is well maintained and babied, so for something as serious as this to happen to all of us who own these vehicles disappoints me. Ford would only pay for half of the repair, but I believe this should be a recall because of the seriousness of the problem. A head gasket blowing? the heads are also defective from what I have read. That is not your average repair. I don't have the money to replace something that was installed defective to begin with. I guess I will continue to stuff a rag up under the leak until Ford feels like taking reponsibility for its failures.

car   Blown Head Gasket problem 3
Failure Date: 01/29/2003

I notice oil drops on my driveway, I took my vehicle in to verify where leak was coming from, the dealer stated that my head gasket was blown. The repair cost for labor and parts would be over $1200. 00. The extended warrenty would not cover seal or gasket for this vehicle. I request NHTSA have Ford dealer or manufactor's do a recall on this vehicle engine. My vehicle has the 4. 6l engine with less than 49000 miles.

car   Blown Head Gasket problem 4
Failure Date: 01/23/2003

Head gaskets blowing out on 1999 Ford Expeditions. I have had mine replaced 3 times so far. It is also occurring on other peoples same vehicles. It is on the 4. 6 and 5. 4 liter engines. The last time I had it to the dealer for this I asked why this keeps happening? they said that Ford is aware of the problem but keeps telling the dealer to replace the gaskets. There is a manufacturers defect here.
