After an oil change at 42k miles, noticed a burning smell and some smoke coming out of the right side engine compartment near battery. Took truck to dealer and was advised that the right side head gasket was leaking towards the rear. Vehicle out of manufacturer's warranty but luckily I had an extended warranty. Was told by the dealer mechanic that there is indeed a head gasket leak problem with the 97-02 Expeditions. Head gaskets should not fail at 43k miles and Ford should repair problem at no cost to the consumer.

Failure Date: 10/01/2001

The right side head gasket is leaking oil. My dealer told me they have had many of these failures for this model. With only 27000 miles on an expensive vehicle like this, it shouldn't be leaking oil all over my garage floor. The 3 year warranty expired 3 weeks ago and the dealer as well as Ford motor company said I will have to pay for it. I am outraged and would like the NHTSA to order a recall. We all know Ford motor company will not recall this defect on their own!.
