Question about 2002 Lincoln Navigator
My 2002 lincoln nav. 5.4 . the dealer said the #3 cylinder is bad. the valve is stuck and the rocker arm is broke. they said i need a brand new head because there is recall on the head. but it is going to cost me 5100.00 should i have the head redone at a machine shop?
There is no recall on the cylinder heads of a Navigator,if it was then the repair would be free,so he must be refering to a technical service bulletin.
The problem with having head redone is if they resurface the head then the bolt holes in the front timing chain cover will not line up with the bolt holes in the head when you reinstall the cover. Ford has recently come out with oversized headgaskets for this purpose so it is do-able now but it would have to be done by a machine shop fimilar with this proceedure.We tried to have this done one time by a local machine shop here and it was a total disaster.Wound up replacing heads anyway. The problem with this type of repair though is that the dealer wouldn't be able to warranty the repair but if it saves you a couple thousand that probably wouldn't matter to you. But you would definately need to be aware of this.
