Cam phaser tune? or delete? With the previous work done on your truck, stick with short oil changes, 5w-30 and if you press the accelerator to the floor for five seconds on cold start, then release it, system builds oil pressure for less wear and tear.


This is huge!

Are you saying the Expedition has a pre-oiler feature stock!

* Get in
* press gas for 5 seconds
* start


Please confirm

(I guess this means the oil pump is electric?)

There are many threads on this subject in this forum.
When you turn the key to start, already have the gas petal pressed. (as long as you have gas petal pressed the vehicle will turn over and NOT start)
Turn key to start and keep it cranking (after 5 seconds) let off gas petal and vehicle will start.

Nope, that's why the vehicle needs to turn over without starting to get the oil primed.

I started doing the holding the pedal to the floor and hitting starter for the last week or so. Usually do it 2x and after a sec on second time, see oil pressure dummy gauge show pressure, let off gas and it fires up. Today, had a "check gas cap" message on my capless system with pending evap sys MIL. Cleared errors to see if it comes back starting normally for a few days.
