Small drip on pass side in the back and lands on possibly the exhaust from the smell of burning oil but not often enough to have repair because of the cost.

Oil leak from passenger side head. Leak is at rear of head and leaks onto the exhaust. Second 5.4 liter I have owned, both have had many issues. Will never own a 5.4 ever again.

I've had the same problem too. Ford wanted $2000 to fix it. Ford should assist owner with this problem, not profit from such a large scale problem

Had a very small leak when new within the first 5000 miles. Took to dealer and Tec. told me it was leaking from drain at oil pan he tightned drain. Dealership charged me for checking since loose drain plug was not warranty covered. leaked still. At 42000 mile leak has starter covered with oil. I have not solved problem as yet.
