Ford Engine Problem Class Action Lawsuit

By Matt O’Donnell


FordSix consumers have filed a class action lawsuit against Ford Motor Co. claiming it knowingly sold certain vehicles – including the Ford 150 and Lincoln Navigator – with engine defects that caused performance and safety issues. All six consumers allege Ford knew about the alleged defects from 2005 to 2012 but concealed the problems to avoid covering their repair costs under warranty.

The Ford engine class action lawsuit claims Ford knew for a period of seven years that vehicles equipped with the 5.4L engine had design or manufacturing defects that caused acceleration hesitation, loss of RPM, stalling and loss of power or sudden deceleration.

As evidence that Ford knew of the alleged engine defects, plaintiffs cite in the class action lawsuit an August 2008 technical service bulletin to Ford dealers advising them on how to repair the defects. Ford chose not to alert vehicle owners and the public of the engine problems, however, the class action lawsuit says.

“Although defendant recognized in 2008 that many of its vehicles contained engine problems, it actively concealed from the public, and the owners of this class of vehicles, the need to perform certain services and/or repairs to remedy these defective and potentially life-threatening conditions,” the Ford engine class action lawsuit states.

“Concealment of these engine problems was orchestrated to minimize and/or avoid the defendant’s contractual responsibility to the plaintiff class of owners,” the class action lawsuit continues.

The Ford engine problem class action lawsuit is brought on behalf of all current owners of any 2004-2008 Ford passenger or light truck vehicle sold in the United States and equipped with a 5.4L engine and includes the original Powertrain Control Module (PCM), the Transmission Control Module (TCM), the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) and/or the Throttle Body Assembly. The class of vehicles is limited to those delivered within 8 years and having less than 80,000 miles.

The plaintiffs are seeking out-of-pocket replacement/repair costs, diminution in value of the class vehicles attributable to the defects, damages, injunctive relief and more for alleged breach of express and implied warranty, common law fraud, negligent misrepresentation, unjust enrichment and violations of state consumer protection statutes.

The Ford Engine Problem Class Action Lawsuit case is Jason Schmidt et al. v. Ford Motor Co., Case No. 12-cv-07222, U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

Plaintiffs are represented by Larry E. Coben, Sol H. Weiss and Julie P. Thompson of Anapol Schwartz.


UPDATE: On September 23, a federal judge trimmed most of the claims in the Ford Engine Defect Class Action Lawsuit, but refused to dismiss it entirely. The class action lawsuit continues.

      I have a 2002 Ford Taurus, I have had problems with the engine surging/ accelerating several times. The car is in good condition but I will not drive it because the Ford Dealer in Union City, GA. said they can not find the problem. My Boys are begging to get the car because they see it just sitting in the driveway, I tell them NO because it is a possible death-trap.

THANKS

  • Robin January 8, 2013

    What about Ford Taurus problems with gears…..mine decides when it wants to engage reverse or not. All other gears work fine. Talked to my mechanic and was told it is a frequent problem with Ford vehicles….and it would cost me 1500.00-3000.00 to correct….cause it is a little part that requires taking the transmission out to fix……My vehicle is a 2004….. but it only has 63000 miles…I am the original owner.

I have already contacted my Senators to help and car magazines to spread the word. Ford started having the plug problem in 1997 and continues on the 4.6, 5.0, 5.4, and the 6.0. I want to be a part of a class action.

    • Dave May 30, 2014

      We have just had this same issue in February, and Ford is not willing to help, have you tried any other recourses? Ours ended up costing us $7200.00 with only 50miles on my V10, so I am also interested in a class action

I don’t understand how ford gets away with not recalling this. I’m very disappointed and will never buy a Ford vehicle again!!!!!

  • Dawn January 20, 2013

    I have a 2005 E350 passenger van that has the same problems except it has high mileage (249K). Why is there a limit on the mileage? I know that the mileage on my vehicle is extremely high but most people drive more than 10K miles per year. Are there any other lawsuits for the rest of us to join in on?

  • Karen January 27, 2013

    I have a 2002 and a 2006 Expedition. This past September while driving back from bringing my son to college a spark plug blew. It was the 2002 which only had 58,000 miles. We had to get the car towed. The dealer quoted between $3,000 and $4,000 for repair. We were able to bring it to a local mechanic for much cheaper. It stillcost alot between toying and repair never mind the stress. We were told it could happen again, now I worry every time I travel. After reading these posts it sounds like it is happening alot and this should not be. We should consider starting our own class action against Ford.

  • Jason Schmidt January 29, 2013

    I just wanted to update everyone that has posted. We still have the ability to add more owners to the suit. We have many people in the same situation as I am. I have not heard from any owners of 2007 and 2008 Ford/Lincoln vehicles with 5.4L V8. Please contact me at if you would like more information. Thanks.

  • J.R. February 25, 2013

    I’m right there with Mike. When is there going to a class action suit against the 6.0 ltr POS (that does not stand for Power Stroke Engine)? I have a 2004 F350 that took two craps on me at 140,000 miles. I put in over $4000 and it is still a sicko.

  • F.J. Chuck Palumbo February 28, 2013

Also support your attorney with a copy of your OASIS Report ,warranty claims, and maintenence records.

  • miguel March 26, 2013

  • Victor April 2, 2013

    I purchase my F150 in 2004 and at 30,000 miles the knocking noise started… Just over 100,000 miles my engine blew up costing me right at $8,000.00 to replace the engine. How do I get on this lawsuit???


  • Donna April 8, 2013

    I had a Ford Taurus that the accelerator pedal stuck and I hit a car going over 70 mph and killed their dog. My car was totaled, and the person tried to sue me for personal injuries.
    A horribly scary experience having a car speed up thru a stop sign into oncoming traffic with my son in the car.
    I need to join this class action as i’m still haunted today from this.

Would this be part of this lawsuit or any other in regards to ford service department mishandling of repairs? Thanks for your time.

  • gary kenske May 20, 2013

    I have a 2005 f250 fx4 with the 5.4l triton v8. a month ago i took it to the dealer for plugs at 105329 miles and a week later it sounded like a diesel and quit running. back to the dealer i go and after a couple of days i was told i needed a new motor for $7000.00. i was never told any plugs broke but when they dropped the oil pan parts of the piston were in the oil pan.LETS GET OUR MONEY BACK FOR THE PROBLEMS FORD HAS CAUSED US

    • Robert Brown November 12, 2014

      I have a F-150, bought it brand new with a 8 miles on it. At 100k as my warrenty instructed me, I took it to the dealer to get a tune-up. The dealer in Virginia Beach told me it was $300.00, I said, fine. He then pulls out two spark plugs and tells me there is a defect with the plugs. They tend to break at the threads. The first one that breaks would cost me 100.00, and every one after that would cost 50.00. I am taking this vehicle to the dealer where I bought it, to machanics trained in working on Fords, to replace plugs that were sold with this truck. Why am I responsible for paying Ford for their defective plugs? I try to get these plugs out on my own with their special tool. I break 5 of the eight plugs. Now I have to go to a Ford dealership. I have my truck towed and it sits in the same parking place for a week. They contact me and tell me the head has to come off for them to extract the #6 and 8 plugs. My truck has not moved. We put it in neutral and once at the dealership, we disconnect the battery (6 plugs were out and two were broken). I visited the dealership 4 times within that week and my truck was always in the same parking place, 3 rows from the shop, far left space. Also the battery was still disconnected. They know not to start the vehicle, why is the battery still disconnected if you are trying to pull these plugs? You have to connect the battery to push into the shop. I would feel so. I gave up on Ford and asked for my keys. The mechanic said that he was sorry he couldn’t get the plugs out and it would cost me 2600.00 to take the head off. He also said it was obvious what needed to done just by looking at the plugs. I wonder if they even attempted to do the job. Finally, I had my truck towed to another mechanic who said they could get them out for 300.00. That was last night. They started working on my truck this morning. At 12:15 they called and told me my truck was ready for me pick it up. 3 hours!!! 2300.00 less than the Ford Dealership. I shouldn’t have to pay a dime, but don’t shaft me. You sell me your problem, and then screw me for buying it. I love my truck, but I will never buy another Ford. Ford should make this right, but I doubt they will.

  • Kristy May 21, 2013

    2005 F350 Diesel Great Truck right? Wrong. Spent 40,000 + for a truck and historically have spent 23,600… Unbelievable…(copies of all repairs done at Ford Dealership ready for submitting for some return of our money) Fuel Injectors (Multiple) Turbo out, on and on and on… Getting ready to sale or trade. Can’t wait to see if the Federal Judge sides with us American Citizens who are getting screwed from “Ford” or it’s decision to have a third party produce the engine for FORD… However if that was Ford’s bad decision then they should definetly stand by that bad decision.

  • tim myers May 26, 2013

  • Brett July 28, 2013

    I have a 2008 F150 with the 5.4. Is there any help out there for fixing these yet. My engine is shot and I don’t have five grand to spend on another engine that will do the same. Any help would be great.

  • Kevin P August 9, 2013

    2005 F150 Lariat 4×4 w 96K that is making this awful noise..sounds like lifters….also trans went at 89K ….the least amount of miles on a ford trans for me since my first Ford truck, my 1984 F250. This truck is not worked and gets regular service…..I am very disappointed with the expensive vehicle.

  • Joe Binkley August 20, 2013

    Having same problem with my 08 f150. with only 58,000 km and ford is not coming good for it after being told by their tech that the engine needs to be replaced. I want in on this lawsuit!!!!

  • Mary Moldowan October 13, 2013

    I have a 2002 Ford F-150 5.4L engine. I took this truck to the dealer on three separate occasions, complaining of loss of power, loss of acceleration. They said they could find nothing wrong—until the spark plug blew out and destroyed the cylinder. Then they told me that this had happened to no one else and it would cost several thousand dollars to repair. Then I discovered that it HAD happened to thousands of others. It cost me two thousand dollrs to have repaired at another mechanic’s.
    I then bought a diesel for my next ruck, thinking that would not have the same defect. Now I find out that that 6.0L diesel truck is probably going to fail also!!! I can’t even sell the truck because everyone knows about the defect in the 6.0L–but the dealer didn’t even mention it!! Very angry!

  • M. Bryant November 7, 2013

    I have an ford f150 2006
    Dealer charging me 900 to change spark plugs

    Wish I had never taken it in.

  • Justin November 8, 2013

    Little upset about this. I just bought a 05 F150 5.4L fx4. I always wanted one and I was finally in a place where I could get it. I looked into the sparkplug problem and it said it was fixed in 03, Great (I thought). Now I hear this stuff. My whole family has always been a ford family. My first vehicle was a ford ranger and I could not brake it. I tried every day I drove it. It gave a new meaning to “built ford tuff”. What happen to that. Ford survied to great fall and never asked for a bail out. Now the owners of there trucks are asking for one. I cant afford to pay if mine brakes. Dont tell me I bought a lemon from ford.

  • John Atterson March 10, 2014

    I own a 2005 f150 FX4 5.4. The injector stuck open last week and filled the cylinder with fuel and bent a connecting rod. My local mechanic informed me that ford extended the warranty to 11 years and 120,000 miles because off the injector problem in the 5.4 3-valve engines. My truck has 129k on it and the ford dealer told me that I am 9k over and there is nothing they can do but charge me 7,000.00 to 7500.00 to put another engine in it. I was praying they would at least offer to pay half. Does anyone know if there Is any legal help that is available for me?

  • elias vega March 19, 2014

    I own a 2002 ford expedition and I have a few problems with my truck it has a 5.4L engine and I had to replace the transmission because it gave out. Now it has a knocking noise that when I accelerate it get louder and the knocking gets faster. I did some checking and I learned that ford has these problems a lot and it has some callbacks and some lawsuits. I would like to know if I qualify for this class action lawsuit against Ford?

  • Jenna Beckner March 20, 2014

    I currently have an 2007 ford fusion. over the past 4 months it has been a death trap waiting to happen. I drove through my walmart parking lot one night to have my car completely shut off inside but still coast along so alarmed I put it in park and got out trying to check everything outside. it was still running and my outside lights worked but were really dim. upon getting back in to try driving it home I could not get it out of park and in gear to go so I had to shut it off and leave it. I had it towed to a shop the next morning to be told my alternator needed to be replaced so I had it done. its a nice car I’ve put quite a bit of work into it to only have it a little under 2 years but at this point I still like it so its worth it. I picked it up from the shop and within 2 miles all my dashboard sensors light up and everything inside cuts off once again. it constantly does it when the vehicle is on whether driving or in park. Its done this ever since and ive had almost everything possible checked to show up with no issues they can find. my dash board frequently says check brake system now and I fear that it is going to switch everything inside off one day when im driving and I really will end up with a brake system problem or failure. please let me know of how to fix this issue or if I can join the lawsuit I feel this is a problem they know about.

  • Frederick Lewis April 7, 2014

  • richard marshall April 16, 2014

    I have a 2002 f250 with a 5.4 and 218,000 miles. Truck has been running great until three weeks ago it started bucking at hiway speed, bad hesitation and awful miss on accelaration. New plugs, coils,fuel filter, injector cleaner, 2 new coil connectors at 21.00 each what a crock of shit that is. I removed throttle body cleaned and replaced IAC , TPS, MAF and I still have the same problem and guess what….No effin code. Looks like this problem has been around longer than people think..Good luck people!

      How do we join this lawsuit? We have a 2007 ford f150 lariat 5.4 lariat that began shuddering on the highway but mainly when vehicle came to stop or low speeds. Told cam on passenger side was loose and timing belt stretched. Needs new motor to the tune of 8,800. Bought truck with 30,000 mile on it and it has 88,000 on it now. Ford refuses to accept resposibility as we have been in contact with corp. Office. Blaming problem on aftermarket oil filters. What a load of crap. Sign me up for lawsuit.

  • Melissa Bagwell July 14, 2014

    I just bought a used 2008 ford fusion and it to had started having these same issues. I bought the car with 125,000. I dont understand why the mileage matters if the problem is same. Im very poor single mom and quite frankly cant afford to by another car or repair these things. What are my options and who cares?

    I have a 2011 Ford Fusion and started hearing a noise under the hood so I took it in to the dealer and they said it was a rod knock and they wanted $6,700 to fix it because it was not under warranty anymore. The car only has 64,000 miles on it and I had the oil changed everytime it was due , still have all receipts from all oil changes. They will not do anything about it .

First time was under warranty the others I had to pay!!! When I talked to Ford they said it was my problem and would have to pay every time they went out sorry, but save receipts in case there was a recall. Seriously!!

  • Benjamin cabrera December 23, 2014

    I have a 2010 f150 fx4 with the 5.4 with engine noise 60,000 miles I guess it’s the cam phasers how do sign up.

  • Chris Valencia January 3, 2015

    The engine on my 2004 f150 Lariat just went out, it’s making a lot of clanking noise with a rough idle.
    Once it hit 69,000 miles it started making a knocking sound, however it still ran fine and the engine light never turned on.
    I had it checked by a mechanic who could not find anything wrong with it. These engines are defective and Ford is just ignoring the problem, while lots of people are paying out thousands of dollars in repair bills for a bad designed motor.
    I would like to sign up for this class action law suite.

  • Tom Sauers January 12, 2015

    How do I become part of this lawsuit? I have a 2007 F150 and had the cam phasers replaced twice under warranty (the first replacement was when it was 2 months old) but the engine is just about dead now – I just spent 2,000.00 to replace all the above mentioned components out of warranty and the shop says “new engine” is the remaining option. Can you help me? Thanks in advance, Tom

  • Kerry Parker January 18, 2015

    Just got told yesterday that I need a new engine by my Ford dealer. F-150 XLT, 2010, 5.4L for $7,100.00. I shouldn’t have to replace a motor that is only 4 years old and has a known issue. I need more information to get in on this suit. I think I’m going to just pay it off and get a Chevy instead of getting a new engine……

  • Jeremy Steele January 21, 2015

    My 2004 F 150 5.4L 3v, is a perfect candidate for a running witness! Know one can pin point exactly what it is (although the Ford dealership wants $4,000.00 for cam phasers and that doesn’t even guarantee it will fix the problem). Please put me on the lawsuit list! I don’t have $7-9k to put in a new motor. I’ve been told that it won’t hurt anything, but I just find that hard to believe considering I can hear it over my exhaust and radio. It’s the worst tick my mechanic has ever heard for this motor.

  • Jerry January 26, 2015

    I have a 2005 Ford Expedition when I tried to change the plugs 4 out of 8 broke off. I managed to get 3 out with the tool that is made for it. The 4th I am having to remove the head to get it out.
    $2000 dollars for the dealer to remove and get it out.
    Please include me in the lawsuit.

  • John February 9, 2015

    Can anyone instruct me on how to join this lawsuit?? I thank you for your time.

  • Eloise Christiansen March 4, 2015

    Richard Christiansen bought a 2005 Ford F-150–5.4 in Duluth Minnesota–it was NEW when he bought it. When the engine went out–there was only 12,000 miles on it!! We want to know where to sign up for the lawsuit please?? The truck has been sitting in the yard for quite a few months now with only 35,000 miles on it!! I contacted the place he bought it–one of the people that work there–not sure–probably a higher up person where he bought it said he would TRY to help us figure out what to do about it!! That is the only message I ever got from him!! I had written this guy in fall of 2014. There were 4 recalls on it–in the time that the truck ran!! We would appreciate any and all help finding out where and how to sign up for the lawsuit!! Ty!! Eloise Christiansen

  • Robert March 8, 2015

    I have a 2004 f150 lariat with 92,000. I’ve had it for three years always make it ticking sound but everybody said that was okay. Had new plugs put in a year ago no problems there. Yesterday on the way to a birthday party, The engine sounded like a can of marbles and then shut off and would not restart. Good all pressure low temperature no warning just stop running. After hearing all these complaints I would like to get in on the lawsuit knowing, The deal is going to come back and do the same thing they’ve done all the other people that have read here.

  • Hyena March 12, 2015

    3-12-15…. I too had the ticking issue. 2005 Expedition 5.4 Triton motor, purchased new. Took the vehicle to the dealer during the first year or two, and they said the same thing – normal for the engine to tick. Last year 2013 maybe, it sounded like marbles in the engine, took it to my mechanic and it cost me almost $2K to have the top right side of the engine rebuilt. I contacted Ford and they stated the vehicle is well out of warranty and the typical not my problem. Still have the Expedition.

  • Cliff March 24, 2015

    I have a 2004 f150 .i took it to my dealer last year noticing a tapping noise in the engine. The service advisor and tech listend an told me it was the cam phaser and that it is common in the 5.4. They all do it no problem to be concerned about. The tapping is getting worse so I took it to the dealer again and they told me the cam phasers need to be replaced for $2000. How do I get involved in the suit?
