    Yeah, sounds about right. Our neighbors just got a new saltwater hot tub delivered & set up about a month ago, but they'd actually ordered it last summer :laugh:

    So apparently the Ford 5.0L motors in '18, '19 and '20 have oil consumption problems. I am at 20% oil life remaining and decided to check it... fucking thing is down so much it barely reads on the stick. I checked it when I picked it up a few months ago and it seemed normal. So I guess I have another truck with issues.

    That one is kind of well known. Initially it sounded like the oil was escaping through the piston rings because they went from cast to insert or something like that. At first they were just replacing the entire engine blocks. But now they supposedly sorted it out as attributed to the timing of the valves or something like that. A reflash of programming on the service bulletin and you're good to go, I would do an oil + filter change (have the dealer do it) accompanying that, and then good to go.

    I still have a catch can from my 5.0, do you want it? I was getting some oil coming from the CCV. The vent is apparently right above one of the cam chains so you'd get oil sling being pushed right out through the vent and fed into the intake. I wasn't catching a lot of oil, but I bought the catch can as a piece of mind sort of thing. If the engine design hasn't changed, the can I bought was a nice one and had Ford ends on the hoses and the can itself has a drain valve in the bottom, plus it's easy to unscrew. It was like $200 when I bought it but I don't have a use for it anymore.

    I'll have to see what it looks like in there, I appreciate that. Let me see what the dealer does about it first, I guess the TSB is a longer dipstick and a re-flash like Garlic said.

    Yeah that one was kind of funny to read. It's similar to the Tacoma diff howl.

    At first - rip it apart, replacing diffs.

    Now.... "That's normal, deal with it bitch"

    I mean it sort of is in a half-assed kind of way. Que in 5 years a slew of Fords with scarred cylinders...

    They don't care. Probably their strategy to sell a bunch of Powerboost engines by then.

    Telluride is coming today or tomorrow, wasn't supposed to be in until next week. Dealer came within 500 of the carvana, so I might just go with them ,would solve some logistical issues and make things a little easier for us.

    Hopefully the end of the deal goes smooth and we have a new car in the next day or two.:fingerscrossed:

    Would also reduce your tax burden, I assume, by taking your trade in off the sale of the new one. So you might end up in the green compared to Carvanna, but private sale would probably be more.



    @jpereira2 finally went under and took my wheels off last night and cleaned my wheel wells. Hitting a car wash with an under butt blaster today and then going front to back underneath maybe tonight. Haven't dropped the skids or spare but that'll be before I come too.

    I was literally just going over that with the wife. 100% worth it, canceling carvana. Officially up 5.5k from our original offers when she was getting antsy earlier this year and I thought we were being low balled.

    I KNOW WHAT I GOT! :laugh:

    That is sort of comical... I wonder if they change the capacity or lower the 'usable range' on the dipstick. Almost sounds like they're overfilled if you put the oil in the current range, in which case I'd understand. I think the 5.0's take something like 8 quarts of oil so it's far from running out!

    Yeah I read some on the f150 forum and apparently Ford tested it at a lower level and also change something with the mapping on the fuel cut on deceleration and bam- new dipstick and an oil change is the fix.

    Getting ready to put the truck up on blocks. Stripping and POR-15ing the frame and putting in new suspension. Anyone want to take a shift running the wire wheel?
