Ford F-150 owners have reported 36 problems related to engine oil leaking (under the engine and engine cooling category).
Bought 2004 f150 brand new, never off road, all scheduled maintenance completed: son driving on interstate at 65mph, heard loud breaking noise, severe rattling, shaking, no power, coasted down ramp and to side road. Towed to mechanic--rod through the oil pan. Mechanic verified that oil was pumped properly through motor. . Same mechanic has worked on this car since we have had it. We have had to have all 4 door window motors replaced (twice-second time, we fixed front door windows and had back door windows wired up) , the back glass replaced for leaking, the 4 wheel drive sensors replaced, the transmission rebuilt, the overhead cam system replaced and now this.

Bought the t07 f150 at 28k and at 61k this happened. While driving at low gear 2nd the enging chugged a little ( lke an old diesal) took it to the dealer they said it was probably the small oil seal behind the cam. They was going to charge be 5600 for a new engine. They tried like he11 to get me to say I didnt have the oil changed regularly. I never backed down, then reminded them that I had bought the $2700. 00 extended warrenty (which I usually never did) they bauked and cried. Buy said that they would find another used engine, they called me and said that they found one for 3500 (or something like that) I began a long search online and found a rebuild for less and gave them the information. They decided to go with that. They ordered the engine and installed it ( well what do you know the replacement had the same prob) they had to pull that engine and get another from the company . Took an extra week and got the truck back its now at 100k and still runs well (so I know it wasnt my driving) so it had to be the incorrect placement of that seal from the dealer, which would leaked hot oil onto the engine and cause a fire. I looked at the origional paper work that they had to replace th origional wiring harness before it even left the factory.

I purchased a used 2003 F-150 with 38,000 miles on it aproximately 6 months ago. I started noticing an oil leak in December but could not locate where it came from. After trying to add stop leak to seal it, I finally brought it to the dealer. With 49,000 miles on it, the front gasket and left head gasket were bad. This seems a little premature for a failure of this type.

Bad vibration from rear of truck 55-60 mph intermittent. Ford state it is aftermarket tires. Had truck in 2 times with factory tires and 3 times with new tires for same vibration. Pinion angle changed twice on truck causing more vibrations that Ford won't fix. Now truck is leaking engine oil from rear main. I am afraid to take truck on long trips for fear of driveline failure. Numerous complaints on web of same problem. Why is Ford not made to fix this issue?truck has 6,200 miles on it and almost a year old. This could be a big safety concern if driveline failure occurs at highway speeds. I have been an auto mechanic for 18 years at dealerships and I know a tire vibration from a driveline vibration.

The engine is knocking; we park it and we feel that it is a defect in the motor we had it put on the machine and the person whom checked it. Said it was not something that could hve been helped. We took it to a Ford place and had it checked there . We have done regular maintenance on it . When we got it we had to take it in for leaking oil and they said they replaced the seal on it it went in twice for this I feel this problem may have resulted in the leaking, and I feel I should not have to replace it if it is a possible defect in the motor thank you for taking the time to read this. Please let me know what I need to do in this matter thank you again for your time and trouble . Sincerely selma telena chappell.
