Hopping on to the flex fuel thing--FF vehicles are ABLE to use flex fuel or any mixture of ethanol from 0 to 85% but you are not required to use it. The car company does get some kind of a break...

The 4.2 has historic problems with intake and timing cover gaskets; I would avoid that engine. Although the 2V 4.6 can potentially blow out plugs, they seem to do so far less than the 5.4 and 6.8 2V...

Thanks for the update, Canoe, and sorry for your continued problems. I have to believe that it is a real problem given that even the Ford guy said he could hear it but that it "wouldn't bother...

The 5.4 engines were all indeed made in Windsor (with the possible exception of the GT40 hotrod engine which was hand assembled in Romeo). The 4.6 engine was made in Windsor (primarily pickup...
