    dEar furutre mechanics of my car: of course you can move my seat, you have to get in the car. I have to move my sisters seat if I drive her somewhere

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Unacceptable James Murphy says:

    Is this why they use rubber timing belts now? Because the belts will wear out before they can inflict any damage?

    The 5.4 will hand grenade shortly. New engine time.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Road_Dog says:

    That 3 valve engine is known for this. The only sure fix is a new engine. Otherwise, you're throwing your money away trying to repair it.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Debra Starke says:

    Wow, two of Fords worst engines. A spark plug shooter and a coolant eater

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Really empty Pockets says:

    In 1st 30 seconds you said it was a 4.6?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CAYMAN987 says:

    Thats a ford 5.4 3 valve. Not what you said. Can tell easily by the intake and valve stuff

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars OMAR6575 says:

    Should have them see Lethos' Law on youtube. so they can learn how the lemon law works on used vehicles.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MarioDIY says:

    Yeah, that's a new engine replacement. It's a big gamble to salvage that engine. That's going to be money down the crap shoot.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DasRenegade says:

    that fusion sounds a lot like fraud for something that isn't coming back. i feel like the customer regrets on buying the car.
    but hey i can be wrong

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gregory Pace says:

    Junkiest engine ever made LOL, won't last even if you throw s new timing chain on. Now show a Chevy 5.7 Vortec timing chain and the cost to replace each, just saying.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Per Westermark says:

    Hm. Lemon law for something sounding like bad fuel…

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roy Quesada says:

    Not surprised on a Trident. I tell my customers when they see these for sale….RUN…don't walk away!! Worst engines ever! Not even gonna start on the repairs I've had to do from spark plugs to variable timing components.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Per Westermark says:

    One thing with aluminium is a magnet can't catch them.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Guy Werry says:

    This engine, based on what I've heard about 5.4s should be replaced.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adam R says:

    It's missing 2 guides: one on each bank. Engine is sludged looking at the cam phaser, so those need to be replaced for sure. It's definitely a gamble, and a rebuilt motor is about $3500, but the install labor vs. repair current motor labor is about the same.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joke Kelleey says:

    What's the clock what's the mileage time on the clock

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joke Kelleey says:

    What's the cost of replacing those timing chains and stuff like that you have to take that into account I think it's worth a try it looks like that's a fairly cheap job it's easy to get to how much does it cost to replace a timing chains should it be done at like 75,000 miles or something

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin Farrell says:

    Not a 4.6, it's a 5.4 if it's an 05, 4.6 never had cam phazers until 2009.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JustAnAverageBrad says:

    please tell me that the guy doing the actual work isnt the same guy you are explaining fundamental component operations to

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joke Kelleey says:

    What's a regular interval replacing that timing chain the maintenance

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joke Kelleey says:

    What is the clock what's the mileage on the clock

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joke Kelleey says:

    I think it's aluminum shaving so maybe it's not that bad as steel can you still use the cover can you still fix the engine I think that's regular maintenance you should replace those after a certain number of miles

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Darren Butland says:

    Hell yeah, let them take an 8 year old car back to the dealer to lemon law it. Tell them to keep you posted on their progress. I bet they leave with a new Ferd and car payments.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bandit Eastlick says:

    So far from what I have seen, Steve Leto will probably agree, this does not qualify for the Lemon Law.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steven Brown says:

    ITS A 5.4 maintenance queen

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lil Chingus & BIG Picture says:

    Thanks for the great comment! I’m a commercial hvac technician, don’t even work on vehicles just love your content and humor

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dean Farmer says:

    Fords 5.4 3-valve Triton engine is know for a laundry list of issues, and the timing chain is one of them.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Lastoria says:

    Pull the engine. Buy a Motorcraft reman for $5,000, than comes with a 3 year unlimited mileage warranty.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Carpenter says:

    This is how my dad's f150 was his was at 130k oil pick up was clogged up with chain guide timing cover also had a hole carved in it from the belt tensioner

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thom Kolb says:

    This happened to my 5.4 as well. Ended up putting more money into it, than it was worth.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles Ball says:

    Customer states "Just starting making rattling noise". I let my truck (2006 F-150 5.4L) go for an entire year with a rattling timing chain at startup due to the bad plastic chain tensioners, before I finally replaced the guides, chains, chain tensioners (metal ones) and cam phasers (and the newer roller followers and lash adjusters), and Melling M340HV oil pump., and didn't have that extensive damage to the timing cover.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gsheac says:

    Bad gas

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 4th Line Gooner says:

    Had the timing chain issues with my 2004 F150. The mechanic at Ford told me these fail because people don't stick with the recommended 5/20 oil and many of those parts run off oil pressure. Many quick lube shops do not carry 5/20 so they go with 10/30 or 10/40 oil.
