If i read this correctly you used 1 1/2 quarts in 2200 miles which is not acceptable. There are very long threads on CG's regarding this issue. Good luck to you! In the meantime never let it get more than 1/2 quart low!!

There is an open recall to replace the valve covers on that engine, due to it using oil. Also the PCV valve is defective. Which is also an open recall

Go to the dealer. They will put on a oil consumption test. The oil and filter will be changed and they will want you to come back at certain mileage intervals so check the consumption. I've heard if the consumption is above their benchmark they replace the entire engine.

I purchased a 2019 F150 special order single cab 5.0 395 horsepower 10 speed transmission sport 4+4 this pickup is a beast looks and drives great first new vehicle I’ve ever owned and cost close to 40 grand with the extended warranty. I put 8000 miles on the truck since August I’ve hade the truck a little over 5 months and added 2 quarts of oil. Called the dealer to schedule an oil change and explained to them there was no visible signs of a oil leak. The dealer charged me 80$ for the oil change and This is what Beaman Ford just emailed me. Got screwed over by Ford and Beamon they say it’s normal for the 5.0 and I have to live with this oil burner. Never once was this mentioned to me when I purchased this truck. Liars and thieves they are.!

I bought a F150 Supercrew Sport with a 5.0L Engine. At 5000 miles, heard valves tapping going up a hill. Checked oil, no indication on dip stick. Had to put 5 quarts in just to get to dip stick lower line. Took to Ford and they told me that it is a known problem which they could fix with a engineer software update and a new dipstick. What a bunch of "baloney". Told me to check it often. They performed the changes under warranty and changed the oil/filter. Heard that people are having their engines replaced by Ford and still have the problem. Something severely wrond with this engine.

Check the net for the lawsuit. I have read where engines have been replaced because of excessive oil consumption.


The rocket scientists at Ford were too cheap to sleeve the cylinders on the 5.0.... thus the oil consumption problem on many of these Engines. Engines in the 60s didn't use any oil for Christ's sake... and now Ford tells customers that it is normal for the 5.0 to use up to 1 qt per 1000 miles... SERIOUSLY with today's technology in metallurgy and lubricants.


I've been driving v-8 fords all my life. Seems, for some reason, it now takes over 7.5 quarts of oil to fill the crankcase in new 5.0 engines Sounds odd. A relative has one of those new F-150's with the problem and the service department imposed a fix. They removed the old dipstick and installed one an inch longer. If you line up the top holes on the two sticks you will notice the fill hole is in the same place, but the add hole is a full one inch lower. Meaning you'll burn over two quarts of oil before the stick registers you need to add. That makes the consumption "normal" I suspect. Probably why the crankcase holds 7.7 quarts of oil in the first place.
