5.4 L ford engine stop running was told I need new engine

Issue Status: Discussion

Towed truck to dealership and was told I need new engine. after researching this engine I found there is a lot of these engines having the same problem but ford says there is not any problems with this motor. And I need a new motor. I think ford should help out with this problem. I was told there was no problem with pumping oil but this is what caused engine failure

Do a quick Google search for this same issue. It happened to hundreds of thousands of people including myself. The 3 valve 5.4 Tritons from 04' - 07' had these issues. I traded the truck to avoid getting stuck with the massive over-haul bill.

I own a 2005 f150. Same issue. Loss of power, stalling from a red light. Dealer says cam phasers and at least $3500 to repair. Runs horribly. googke search show thousands of ppl with same issue. Several youtube vids cover this issue. What should we all do???? Lawsuit?

my 2004 ford f150 4x4 5.4 liter 3 valve triton is making the loud ticking noise and i only have 80,000.00 miles on her . i think ford should admit they made the oil ports to small and replace these engines with the corrected versions !
