Finally found out that ford installed an inferior check valve in the engine which allows the oil to drain back down from the upper cylinder heads, only fix is to tear down engine and replace the valve. Ford won't do a recall as not enough complaints.

Or they won't do a recall because It's an old used car no longer produced. Fundamentally speaking, there would be no difference in recalling a non safety issue like this on a 2004 vs. a 1964. Support has to end at some point.

And how did you find this out ? Service Bulletin, etc.. ?
