    Well Ford 5.4L owners I set mine on fire today. The 5.4 have a common oil leak from the head gaskets and mine leaked down on the red hot exhaust yesterday and caught fire and went to ford dealer today and said no recalls or bulletins about it. So heads up when plowing with oil leak. Steve

    Mine caught on fire last summer but it was the master brake cylinder with the cruise sensor that started the fire. Hardly no damage because I had a fire extinguisher, Ford recalled a month later.

    I was able to put it out right away. Just burned the oil dripping on the exhaust and didn't spread any where else. Steve

    Glad to hear that your truck is still in one piece. Truck fires are never good.
