Sorry for coming off as an ass, it's hard to express emotion on a messageboard, but I was just responding quickly and what was on my mind at the time. As Roz says, it is a common problem with the 2.5 Duratec motor.

I did mine for about 2000.00


But that was myself.....for some one to do it your looking at 2500 for motor alone and atleast a 1000 in labor...you may have to consider a new vehical if price is out of the question for repair.


Maybe contact some local CEGers for advice or help???
They might be able to help you with a 3 liter?? And help you keep the cost down. Also, its cheaper to find a used 3 liter and get it installed than to find a new motor....The prices i gave you were or a new motor estimate.

I have not found it true what they say about Fords...if you take care of your car, it will take care of you. Some cars just need less taking care of.

I didn't say you had to spend tons and tons of money on it to keep it going, just to take care of it. You have been reg'd here for about a year and have not used this wonderful knowledgebase to your benefit I see. It is a very known problem and if it is the bearing, it was the owner's fault for not keeping the oil up to par or digging into right turns a lot. I'm sorry if you have had a bad experience with your Ford, but I have had no extraordinary problems with mine. I am also not manufacturer branded, I don't hate chevy's or hate ford's. At 17, I would expect you don't have enough experience with cars to make a manufacturer bias like that.

also, did you buy the car brand new, if you bought it used, then the damage could have already been started...

yes i bought it used....it is also my second one...and i think i have every right in the world to be bias with makes...my first csvt's brakes went at at 50 mph at an intersection, i nailed a van...i was badly injured as was my friend.....would be dead right now if it wasnt a safe car and for my seat belt. I think i have a reason to dislike ford, age doesnt matter...its what you have been through that counts....my car was 13k....I (parents) have put over 4k into it jus to keep it going...brakes we a major part of that as they SUCK, i know from experience...jus dont set me short because of my age, i can still have an opinion about cars...all i wanna do now is sell this pos and get something worth driving...dont feel obligated to responding cause i think i am jus done with this...

I am not in any way setting you aside by your age. My point was that with a year or two's driving experience, you obviously don't have enough experience to pass judgements on a manufacturer. Hell, I don't think at any age there should be a bias on manufacturer, a preference is reasonable, but not a bias. Not very logical to me. I'm sorry that you put 4k into the car to keep it running, sounds like a stealership victory to me though. Knowledge is the key and you are lacking it in this situation IMHO. There is nothing better than free knowledge.
