2005 Expedition Engine Rebuild
Hello all, I'm new to the site and need help with a decision to rebuild the engine in my wife's 05 Expedition (5.4L). Vehicle has 130k miles. We've had all the typical problems for this engine or at least what I hear many owners of vehicles with the same engine say their typical problems are: Cam Phasers, 02-sensors, bad injectors, rich fuel....Sorry, you need a new engine.
Question: Is the ford dealership the best suited to install a rebuilt engine or can I pretty much work with a trusted local garage to handle this job? Ford wants $6k+ while i'm sure this work can be done for close to half that price.
