Burns Oil? Replace The Engine!

Recommended Posts


This is not happening with the little engines in the Transit Connect.  But very interesting.  Apparently, there is an oil consumption issue with the 5.0L.  If changing the PCV doesn't fix the problem, then the only solution is to install a new engine.  Wow!  1st time I've ever heard an auto manufacturer installing a new engine to fix an oil leak.  Some cars (Subaru) are notorious for burning oil. 1 quart every 1,000 miles.  They used to tell people that an engine burning oil like that was "normal".  Ford's standard for the 5.0L is 1 quart every 3,000 miles.
