Question about 2005 Ford F-150
Bought this Truck new and now has about 32k miles. Engine seem to be very noisy on startup and consumes about 1 quart of oil every 3000 mi. This seems excessive to me but I really don't know. If this is normal it's the worst oil consuming vehicle I've ever had. Inside the exhaust tailpipe always seems to be black. Are these normal characteristics of the 4.2L Ford F150?
Are you using the proper weight oil? If its too heavy it will cause engine noises. I just got my truck and it seems to be using oil too. Not thinking head gasket though. I'm going to research a little more before I do something that radical.

You will need to change your head gasket. You need a headgasket set. All of your seals are going bad. You have a little oil going through your exhaust manifold, and the heat is cooking the oil. If you dont change these seals soon, you might have to buy a new catalytic converter. If your converter cooks all of that oil, it makes your engine very noisy.
