1. My raptor was made in 1/2017. 2. It took lots of calls and fed ex shipment over night to the dealer and 5 days from Monday to late Friday to get the raptor back. For a couple of days Ford could not say when the part would be available. 3. It does appear the leak is fixed. No leak found after driving lots since late Friday to this am. 4. Parts replaced are as follows per work invoice: a. 7652661 oil dye ( used for testing after placement) b. Hl3z*9t516*a tube asy c.

I apologize as I was too optimistic to think my problem listed above was fixed. 2. I drove the raptor after picking it up late Friday afternoon home and around town and freeways over weekend for about 200 miles total. ( no off road riding, no 4 wheel driving, max speed about 75 mph, no stomping on tubes for extending periods). I checked for oil leak Sunday am, and today- Monday am-no leak. I turned on engine and left for a short errand after checking today-Monday. 3. When I came back I noticed a tire tread imprint and wet areas on driveway. I parked next to the driveway on pavers when I came back. I opened the garage to find a huge puddle of oil. 4. The brand new 2 week old raptor is back at the dealers. I will update as I find out info. I think I have a beautiful red raptor lemon!.

My 1999 f150 truck has a head gasket problem and heater core issue. Started smelling anti freeze on Sunday. Took to a mechanic on Monday and said there is an oil leak, seepage coming from head gasket. The heater core needs replaced, but why oil leak is happening not sure. Was told it would be about $3500. 00 to repair only head gasket and heater core. This truck only has 127,00 miles on it and all regular maintenance has been done timely. Researched this on internet and found many complaints about this same problem. There was even an article in automotive news on 4/1/2002 regarding this issue, and according to written article Ford was fixing the problem for consumers. I called Ford and they told me no. This is a huge expense, and with this many complaints and article that says Ford is aware of this defect and no one can help. Pretty much either fix the head gaskets and hope it works, or was told new engine needed. If this is an issue, and can cause the engine to stop would like to know if I have any recourse in getting Ford to fix the problem. Cannot be driven now because of possible extreme overheating and then engine failure. Any help would be appreciated.

Multiple times now, my truck will downshift and send the rpms over 4500 this causes the engine to misfire, the engine light will blink and the truck will struggle to maintain its speed and any acceleration is extremely diminished. This is extremely dangerous as I frequently drive on rural 2-lane(one in each direction) highways and find this problem significantly impacts my ability to safely pass slower vehicles. It has failed to accelerate enough times that I cannot depend on the truck to accelerate when I move into oncoming lanes of traffic. At 30,000 miles the engine developed an oil leak. Within a month of having the leak repaired at the dealer, the engine experienced a major misfire event causing the engine light to come on. I returned the vehicle to the dealership for repair. The dealership explained that two ignition coils went bad and required replacement. This caused damage to the spark plugs for which I was charged approx $250 but was able to negotiate it down to $140. Within a month of getting the vehicle back, the vehicle started displaying the misfire symptoms with diminished acceleration and blinking engine light. Very unhappy with this vehicle's performance!.

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.
