Lol could you imagine if there was a recall. That would be a nightmare for Ford

Way back when, probably about 2 years after I bought my 98 new, there was some kind of good will policy. I read about it somewhere online (possibly here) and took it into the dealer and they replaced the original set up with an upgraded version for free. But I doubt that totally eliminated the issue or the SUV's from 2001 on would not have had the issue. But on the other hand the 98 has around 150K on it now and the engine is the least of it's issues.

Somebody here should know the story better than I do.

Way back when, Ford replaced my motor in an warranty attempt to resolve timing chain issues. That was at 90,000 miles.… I am not sure they even understood the problem. Or at least they did not talk like they understood the problem.

I had no confidence in my 97 SOHC Ford at the time… but that was almost 500,000 miles ago.
