F150 NEW F150 OIL CONSUMPTION

2008 Ford F-150

Engine Mechanical problem
2008 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 2000 miles

I have a new 2008 F150 Crew Cab with 4.6 Liter Engine. I am very disappointed to find that the engine has consumed nearly an entire quart of oil in its first 2000 miles. There are no leaks. I have been so careful to gently break in the engine (slower and often varying speeds the first 1000 miles). My cars are Hondas. None has ever consumed any oil. Am I worrying about nothing important? Or should I start pestering the Ford dealer as a matter of record for possible engine repairs later?

Hit ford hard it could be bad valve seals or bad rings dont work on the truck take it to the ford dealer or you will void your warrenty

make sure when you check the oil you are on level ground and the truck is warmed up
