Oh no! Not the highly coveted 5.0L! 😆
I have to start the oil consumption test all over this week, and have the PCV changed. Here we go....

I often hear/see people say "Ford has been developing the 5.0 for decades" as if it's the even remotely same engine as 30 years ago..

It's good to see that Ford is recognizing the issue. Not that anyone wants a problem, but it seems that Ford is pretty good at stepping up to the plate on these types of things.

Right! I hear the same thing. The 2018 isn't even the same engine as 2011-17 5.0 and those had nothing in common with the old pushrod SBF.

I was never a fan of them calling this new 2018 and the 2011-2017 by the 5.0 name. I knew it would cause confussion, and it has. Some people still call them 302s. The 2018 engine actually has 307 cubic inch displacement. And the 2011-2017 was 302 I believe.

Chevy did the same thing in ‘99, leading people to beielve they were bringing back the 327 with the 5.3.

Wait until people think the new 7.3 gasser is either a diesel or a gas version of it.

Everyone always bashes the Eco Boost engines and say the 5.0 is more reliable but it seems like the 5.0 has been plagued with issues from the get go. I would never buy a truck with one.

The 2018 5.0 yes.

But the earlier one was solid.

Which 5.0 are you referring to?

The ones made since 2011. The first gen had the knock issues along with oil consumption problems now this new version has issues also.

No matter what Ford does, they need to keep a powerful, reliable and fuel efficient V8 under the hood of the half ton trucks.

This TSB is for select 2018 trucks. Yours is exempt until another TSB is issued. Drive it 5 more times, but hurry though....

Ford should consider reducing the bore and stroke of the 6.2 to about 5.5 liters. Now that would be a nice heavy duty and reliable 1/2 ton truck engine.

I think this is pretty big news.

I've read in different workshop manuals over the years that as much as one quart of consumption every 1000 miles was considered "normal". Of course most of us would never be happy with that much consumption, and it sounds like Ford is beginning to understand that.

I'm not the moderator for this forum, but can we keep this on-topic? I'm very interested to see what the root cause of this one is, and why only specifically identified trucks. I might be in the market in the next six months…
