    Wrong. I say it is either a 5.0 or 5.8 V8. The throttle body location with EGR valve gives it away. The EFI I6 had the throttle body mounted towards the middle of the intake plenum. The other tells are the left (drivers side) valve cover and the distributor at the front of the intake. The I6 distributor was at the middle-side of the block. The alternator on an I6 was mounted lower too.

    So you're serious?

    I'm still having a hard time finding that "driver's side valve cover".

    I think you're mistaken on the location of the throttle body in relation to the intake plenum. Also, IIRC, Ford started tilting the I6 to one side for many reasons including clearance issues (it's tall) and it actually made more power leaning over to one side because teh intake and exhaust runners had a more direct flow into and out of the cylinder head. That also meant that the distributor appeared higher, more upright and forward in the engine bay.

    LOL Yes, I am serious. Early to mid '90's. Pic's from a Ford service manual. Last group of Ford's with 4.9/5.8 we had were '95's. After that model year, I couldn't tell you.

    EDIT: Add enlarged, cropped pic of what can be seen of left valve cover.

    When we were dealing with Ford Motor Company back in the '90's, the warranty rep for Ford told us they considered 1 quart per 1000 miles to be acceptable oil consumption. I have no idea what they say now. So you can cling to your engines shouldn't use oil, you can say that is horrible consumption and think I am screwed up for saying a quart for 1,250 miles on that old Ford. The fact is in the real world many engines use oil and many of the people that drive those cars are not willing to shell out the dough to fix them if proper diagnosis determines the problem to be a ring/bore/piston problem.

    In the early to mid 90's, I believe Ford had some QC problems with their engines, particularly the 4.9L I6 with con rods in '95. Many of the 5.8's we had started consuming a quart of oil per 1400 miles well before 100K. And if you think some fleets don't maintain their vehicles well with scheduled oil changes, that is another misconception you’re going to have to deal with. That is why a drivers pre trip normally specifies check the oil before use and add if necessary.

    Use a can of Sea-Foam in the crankcase. It will clean all of the crap out of the motor and allow the oil rings to seat properly. Great stuff!!

    A Ford engine can burn 1 quart for 1000 miles, you got to be kidding me.

    No wonder Toyota is #1

    Just wanted to let you folks know that you guys nailed it right on the head...

    Changed the PCV valve and there is next to no oil in the intake now... oil pressure is normal, oil isnt being used.

    Truck is actually running 100% now as far as I know!
