You may have a blown head gasket. One of the head gasket's job is to prevent coolant and oil from entering specific parts of the engine. Over time the gasket wears down and holes appear. Your cooland may have passed through these holes causing it to mix with oil. You would notice steam appear at the tail pipe, where some of the coolant may mix with the exhaust as a result of this.

Check your coolant system to see if you are losing coolant as well. The symptoms you describe are indicative of a blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder wall. A compression check may be a some assistance as well.

Sounds like a cold start problem from the description. You should check the coolant sensor circuit and the idle air control motor. Make sure the coolant level is full or the coolant sensor will give a false reading. Check the idle air motor and throttle plate for varnish and sludge and clean with a carburetor cleaner listed as oxygen sensor safe. Other checks should include condition of filters, plugs, wires and vacuum lines and line routing. If you have a scan tool, the data stream would be the fastest and easiest way to check the sensor circuits.

I have a motorhome 2002 V10 Ford Triton engine that is not starting. Engine turns over but it won't start, not getting fuel. Supposedly there is a fuel switch for the fuel pump. Does anyone know location

If it has an inertia switch, it should be on the passenger side near the door.
I would first check the pump relay to see if it is sending power to the pump thru the switch. And do you have a switch for dual tanks ?

5.4 triton. starts up rough 3 out of 5 times. did

I would check the fuel filter. They should be replaced every 20,000 miles. Also check the air filter. You could also do a fuel pressure check.

I have a 01 ford escort zx2 and it is making a whining noise from under the hood i have replaced the water pump and it still whines and the heater will start off blowing hot air but when you go several...

Remove the serpentine belt and run the engine to see if the whine still exists. If the whine is gone, try moving the pullies by hand to feel what pully is rough or has a lot of play. Your issue with the heat is likely separate from the whine. You have air in the cooling system. With the engine cold, remove the radiator cap. Fill the radiator to the top and run the engine until it gets to operating temp. The level in the radiator will drop, this is when you add more coolant and replace the cap. Make sure your overflow/resivoir bottle is half full with coolant.

Heater issues

right beside the degas bottle top thare is a black hose sticking out that has a screw in plug in it that can be removed with a straight screw driver. remove this plug and start vehicle and let it run with heat wide open and on high till a STEADY stream of coolant is presant then replace plug - dont over tighten. this bleeds the heater core.
