    I think my 2018 Ford F150 5.0 is burning oil. I bought it used with 46,000 miles and at 48,000miles I checked the oil and only at the tip of the dipstick showed any oil! Thus I began reading of the Ford 5.0 engine oil hideous oil consumption as other owners found this out! There is error making these engines, no there are no external oil leaks as the oil is burned inside. This is an expensive truck to buy, where to I go now? Will Fomoco stand behind their product, with a recall, buy back or will Ford walk away?
    Please advise.
    Thank You

    My buddy had the exact same problem with his King ranch F-150 he had less than 20,000 mi on it. They tried a few different things it ended up putting a brand new engine in it because of oil consumption. It is a known problem and should be covered under warranty
