car   Engine Burning Oil problem 2
Failure Date: 02/12/2004

We bought a 1999 Ford Expedition eddie bauer almost a year ago. The day we bought it we noticed a burnt oil smell. The dealer replaced the head gasket. Now almost a year later, we blew a spark plug and need a new head. Dealer says that the head gasket and head are not related???? I was told that this car has these problems because of aluminum heads. . I want the dealer to replace it, I am willing to pay more for a new one, but I am not willing to repair it and take a loss! help!!.

car   Engine Burning Oil problem 3
Failure Date: 03/30/2000

This vehicle has been back to dealership seven times since purchase for warranty service problems and recalls. In may of 99 there was a recall on the wheel lugs: nuts. In September 99, November 99, and March 2000 it was in for windshield wiper problems; moulding replacement; twice for front end alignments (steers to right); and trailer hitch recall. The constant smelll of burning oil has just been diagnosed on latest visit to dealership 5/15/00 as needing a new cylinder head. Vehicle has been in on three other occasions for this same problem, but they could never find it. Now parts are on order---will take 3-4 days to obtain parts before they can repair it. Regarding the "windnoise" dealer says its "normal" yet service bulletins have been issued on this problem (996780 & TSB 99-6-5). In November of 1999, the left "tie rod" broke off while we were in phoenix. A phoenix dealership did a same day repair for us.
